+1 on the continent breakdown. The country list is growing and I'm sure the UK guys will agree with me that it takes several scrolls to get to the bottom of that list and its easy to overshoot.

That's why I use a tweaked version of the "Cleaner Waze" forum cleaner script -- I have it set to show only the "United States" and "Canada" subforums on the "Countries" forum page. (Not that I think that the other countries are unimportant, of course ;) -- they're just outside of my bailiwick. :))

Thoughts?

My thought about that is that the wiki is (supposed to be) about more than just editing. I don't necessarily see it as editor-specific.


Tapatalk made me do it.


Fair enough...Personally I use the wiki pretty much only for editing. But I realize that may not be the case for everyone :)

Guess that's why it's called a "proposal" :lol:


A new user would expect information on the client and web site functions to be there as well. It was one of the first places I went to figure out how Waze worked. I went back there when I wanted to start editing. Also, it provides a good place to put known issues near where the user is reading about the proper operation/process.

Send me a copy of your tweak. I use it to filter New Posts, but not the forum "tree".

Actually, I already posted it (back in January :oops:) in that thread ;):

... with this:

Just an additional note -- before you make that change "live" on your computer, be sure to "whitelist" all the boards that you want to be able to see, or else you'll find yourself not seeing everything that you need to see! I recommend logging in on two different browsers, one with the script and one without, then walking them together through the forum, so that you can see if you're missing something important to you and make the necessary changes. ;)

In case you were wondering, the Country (language) forums are on the move.

Thanks. It might need another tweak down the road, but it's a far sight better than the mess we've got now.

Any chance the outdated information on the main community page will be dealt with? Under Recent Map Updates I've been seeing that Popeye7751 made some road geometry changes in Tyler, Texas for... well, the past 7 months. Not close to professional-looking at all.

Who is organizing the move of Turkey? It's already in the wrong place.
