Absolutely. Sorry for the late reply but I have been doing this alone for quite a while :-(
Go to your dashboard and zoom in for an area that you want to be responsible for. Click the button Permalink in the bottom right.
Copy that address from the addressfield in your browser and send a request to alpha@waze.com and tell them that you want to be area manager for that area.
When this is done you will have full control over your area and can edit as much as you want.

The functionality in your Android is probably much better than my BB. I am sure you will be able to help out and if you can get more friends starting using it we will have much better chance to improve the maps.

I guess that is a fact. It is just that it is impossible for me to handle it all by myself and people are just adding crap into the map so I am constantly in a backlog trying to sort things up.
It would be easier to have a few more guys (or girls) and get some help.

Seems like I am the only one using this forum at least. I can see you driving around and I sometimes get messages and reports from you but please also join this forum so we can help each other.

Guys I can see you driving around now and then but no response on the forum.
Step up and help us make Waze work in UAE.

The area is Al Quoz again.

It is always someone new. :? I have contacted the editors the previous two times and reverted it back. There needs to be a way of vetting editors before they can make changes. What the map need is a clean-up and simplification effort and less meddling with minute changes which adds nothing to the application's functionality.

I've not been using Waze for a couple of months since I've been out of the country regularly and the application didn't work either. Now that I'm back I see that someone has gone an undone all the work I did on some roads. The T-junctions are now again split roads, and on top of that all of the segments are categorised as "Ramp".

Don't really feel like chasing a moving target. :cry:

Al Qouz, Dubai. The particular road is Latifa Bint Hamdan street.

I cleaned the area because I kept on getting prompts to "keep right" when I'm supposed to turn left and other misguided directions.

Thanks Bazgrant. I have started making edits on areas that I know. For the most part what the maps need is for lots of data to be removed. In some areas every single green patch has been marked as a park even though it is just a roundabout.

Jip, I've read the guidelines and I suppose that is where some of my frustration with the maps come from - someone else didn't read it and just added what the area looks like instead of how the road works.
