I just made the change to https://wazeopedia.waze.com/wiki/USA/Template:Rank

placeexternal should now return 2, and that should be used - {{Rank|placeexternal}} - anywhere in the USA wazeopedia that refers to the rank at which an editor can create external links.

I'm all for the update on the pages that are ready so far.
I made a start at the section in
https://wazeopedia.waze.com/wiki/USA/Us ... estriction

But I'm not sure I'm through with it.
If anyone else wants to take a whack at it, please go ahead. Can we remove even more?

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.

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

I see that this is stated correctly in the Places WOP, so I don't see any issue with updated this page to be correct.

Unfortunately, there is some code in the table to pull that information that I'm not familiar with. Can someone help with how to update fields like {{Rank|placeexternal}}? Also, now that I know about it, the lines I added are hardcoded, not linked to something like this.

ETA: I found this rank template. Is this what I should edit to update that rank? And to add parameters for the additions I hardcoded (not knowing any better)? Learn something new every day around here....

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

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?

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?
