Sorry if I missed it, but who do I ask if I want to request a larger area? I'd like to get access to most of Southern CA and part of Northern CA without having to submit hundreds of permalinks.

Thanks!

The best thing to do is ask. I used to ask for 20 permalinks at a time, but a lot of that was open ranch/farm land around the small Texas towns. I would ask for 3 towns at a time, but snag the areas around them. It does take time, and the responses were usually given in about 48 hours or so. I do know of someone who just did that and was denied. They told him he needs to gain some experience in editing and when he has more edits, he can request that many again. He then requested the two towns he drives in constantly and got those approved, so he's working his way through both of those towns...which happen to be in West Texas.

Yeah, they one that I have seen as well are mainly staying in the city, which is why I am trying to go outside of those areas. We have lots of places that don't even have AM coverage and have lots of issues with roads that need fixing.

I know there's a couple of people already editing South Carolina, but I don't know how much they're doing, or if they're just doing things in their area. I've seen them ask for unlock requests, which is why I know there's at least 2.

This may sound weird, but this is so true......there are TONS of small towns in Texas that need fixing. I'm talking about the ones in the middle of the state as well as in the panhandle. Every week or so, I pick one and clean it out. I make all of the roads two way, fix it all up, make it look pretty. You may say to yourself "I don't ever go to Texas, so I won't know my way around from rock a in the ground" but a lot of the small towns are simple squares surrounded by ranch land or farm land and that's it. There's not a whole lot to it. You can pick one of those.....as a matter of fact, here's one:

It's real simple. Just clean it out as well as the surrounding area. MOST of the roads out in the middle of the fields can be deleted, they're on private land and have nothing to do with day to day traffic. When you're done, lemme know, I'll find another one for you, or you can follow US-70 to your right and pick another one.

http://www.waze.com/wiki/index.php/Editing_ranks disagrees with you. Getting to 200k edits, requesting and getting country wide edit rights is CM status. It is not Waze Champ status, but it is CM status.

As to the OP, It's a tough battle you'r fighting. I had the same problem, I was seeing problem reports for issues occurring all over my state but requesting AM status one block at a time was tedious to say the least. Then at about the time I was hitting 50k edits they bumped CM from 100k to 200k edits. Just keep plugging. The key is to find cities that have never been touched by an editor and clean them up. Just make sure you save frequently so as to not lose edits to the new 150 edit per save limit.

Countrywide edit rights does not equal being a CM.

They spent hours doing it. I got about half of Texas before I became a CM, so now I don't worry about it. I can edit wherever I need/want to.
