I agree with what was being said there. I wasn't going to try to create an argument or flame war etc, just to emphasize what jhfrtonz said, someone may have already posted fluently about the topic already, me just adding to the thread, makes the posts get deeper and deeper. At some level we need to keep it simple.

Second part, not to self bloat, but the USA is made up more than just states, it is rather regional in some regards, like the Midwest. Until recently, editor activity was rather sporadic if not minimum here. Granted some other states have had more rock solid foundations with editors of all levels working together. But that hasn't really been the case here in the Midwest. I have some CM's neighboring, but it probably isn't overlaid as deep as say probably CA or Boston? I appreciate the new levels of help that I have been getting here lately with new AM's and it seems a new CM or two, but to assign someone this area more responsibility over me because they have posted more in the forums, sort of puts me on the porch if you get what I am saying.

I feel like there is a fine line being walked here, some are going to feel it more than others. Until mapcat's freeway adventures, I had strived to connect major metropolitan areas here by correctly making the freeway structure more prevalent. To have a system that overrules all of my efforts because of forum posts would chaff me a bit.

I am sure it will all get sorted out. I look forward to change, it will be healthy for the community and us all. I just hope some things are grandfathered in here.

Edit: I don't want to distract where we are going here, I felt like I was rambling a bit there, but I hope that someone at least follows what I am saying there...let me know, thanks.

This might just work. Has this anything to do with the other new beta stuff, and will that be integrated with this somewhere?

Perhaps a translation contact for each language set?

If the folks at Waze want to put their maps--perhaps their most valuable resource--in the hands of people according to their ability to game the system, rather than according to evaluation by other concerned parties, that's their prerogative; but it isn't a formula for success.

Massive +1. It should be based solely on proven ability and by peers in the community who are established, not by any numbers or stats (except the edit requirement).
