Well, you can check the status on the FTW system with the Hungarian guys... Or maybe Waze is thinking about something to manage the automated reports from external sources?!
In any ways, FTW is working just fine for the last year...

Help to keep the pressure on Waze, so they prioritize it 'correctly' and it gets resolved.
Our contact is Irad (MapSir)...

Feed the Waze isn't working well in Europe for weeks... Should make it work again, before expanding... It looks look the problems are on the Waze side, so not much to do about it...

This would be a great tool! I hear and respond to calls daily, which would allow me to post traffic accidents and other emergency-related traffic issues when I am dispatched. Would also be a great tool because I can report a motor vehicle accident as I'm dispatched, and if a passerby sees it, can also update incoming units such as myself on whats going on! Almost like getting a heads up/picture before I even show up. 911 centers would be able to get additional information as well from Wazers. (Lets be honest... most people calling 911 are freaking out, most Wazers are calmer.)

Map errors can be reported from the Live Map, though, right?

Still, I think this would be eminently useful for the type of reports that are poorly handled by Waze at the moment. Having Construction and Pothole reports expire after two hours is absurd.

I wouldn't mind adding things personally though, construction zones and potholes and such. It'd be a lot nicer to alert someone of construction ahead when there's construction ahead instead of using any of this (CONST ZN) stuff.

Simply enough, because its creator is based in Europe. It's not an official tool, although it may have some official support.

I'd love to see it here, but I don't expect to.
