[Page Update] Editing restrictions  

Wed Jan 03, 2018 3:54 pm

The Editing restrictions page needs to be updated to include the new permissions released today in WME version v2.4-21. In particular,

* Changes in permissions: L1 editors cannot delete segments unless they created it themselves
* Changes in permissions: L1&2 editors cannot set difficult turns
* Changes in permissions: L1 editors cannot close URs

Would anyone object to a direct update of the page or should I copy it to my user space, make the changes, and post here for approval?

I would add that info to the rank table at the bottom in a format that matches what's already in the table, like Category:Update requests Description: The minimum rank to close an update request is 2... etc. I think this qualifies as uncontroversial maintenance of a page, and you should feel free to update the table. As for detailed description of these things above the table, you may want to propose some text here explaining these new restrictions

Quick thinking. Good job getting this started right away.

Is there any particular order to the Rank table? My best guess is that it is in the order the restrictions are discussed throughout the page?

ETA: I added the three lines where I think they make sense, but perhaps the table can be reordered alphabetically? Or by minimum rank? If it looks relatively random to me, then I'd guess I won't be the only one and it should be clearer.

My proposed changes:

For * Changes in permissions: L1 editors cannot delete segments unless they created it themselves

In the Segment lock effects section,
1. Modify the last bullet under the can list: "Delete an unlocked road from a junction with the locked segment if it had been created by them."
2. Add a statement at the end (or before the 'However...." closing statement?): "A rank 1 editor can only delete segments that have been created by themselves that has not been since been locked higher than a rank 1 lock."

Also, add a line to the table at the bottom with the relevant information.

For * Changes in permissions: L1&2 editors cannot set difficult turns

The only place RTC restrictions related to what rank is able to set them are mentioned is in the table at the end (the mention of setting closures in the "Segment lock effects" section is only related to not being able to add RTCs on segments locked above one's rank). I would think it would also be appropriate for the difficult turns restriction to only be listed in the table?


For * Changes in permissions: L1 editors cannot close URs

Would this be ok to only list in the table or should we add a new section about URs that spells out that L1 editors can do everything with URs except close them?

My two cents: It's enough to say they can't close them.

One more question. There are a few other pages dealing with the topics of the new permissions that should probably each have a line added. For example, the UR Close section should mention that and editor needs to be R2+ to close a UR. Similarly, the DT page and the section about deleting roads should mention the new permissions. Should I start a new topic for each different Wazeopedia page that I think needs the minor update?

Can we lump this effort together into the same topic, at least as a starting point, in order to get it well-coordinated?

Another page that should have a major change is https://wazeopedia.waze.com/wiki/USA/Ma ... estriction

When that section was added, there was no separate page on restrictions.
I would propose that the section be drastically cut, reduced to a list of the type of restrictions, and get a link to the best source of info on restrictions.

I would like to make it easier to maintain our wiki pages in this way.

I think the changes look good.

It has been over a week, can we go ahead with changes since there doesn't seem to be any disagreement?
