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?

In a recent discussion about external providers, some conflicting information was found on the rank required. The Editing Restrictions page states that external providers can only be edited by L3+ editors - this should be L2+ editors.

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....

Best I can tell, the rank template that you posted is the documentation for the actual template page: https://wazeopedia.waze.com/wiki/USA/Template:Rank. Editing the source on that template page shows the different keywords that can be used with the {{Rank|}} command and the values associated. If this is in fact where {{Rank}} is looking for those values, placeexternal will need to be updated to 2 there.

On a side note, in the Places WOP External Providers page the rank for external providers is hard coded to 2, and does not use the {{Rank}} lookup.

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.

urclose should be "2", not "3", yes? It became 3 on the Editing Restrictions page when it was converted to use the lookups: https://wazeopedia.waze.com/wiki/USA/in ... did=162381

New changes to WME version - v2.25-116:

Propose changing https://wazeopedia.waze.com/wiki/USA/Ed ... _rank_lock

Rank 1 Locks "Can only change the name on 30 road segments a day"
to:
"Can only change the name on 30 road segments a day (300 segments for area managers)"

and

Rank 2 Locks "Limited to deleting 10 road segments a day"
to:
"Limited to deleting 10 road segments a day (100 segments for area managers)"

I think this is a clear statement of uncontroversial information.
I think you should publish it.
