The House number editing interface has changed so changing pictures to match the grey vice the old black.

Also a lot of new information about priorities for address search and requiring city on segment etc.

Note don't want to post the Search Pyramid outside the Waze forums. Will put into article once Wazeopedia allows it.

I assume the Force House number error is also different and would require a new image as well.

Understand, but between the 500 errors in WME and the no ability to upload a photo to wazeopedia, I finally gave up on the pictures till something can work properly. Will make sure all current photos are changed to new format as applicable.

Still having problems with the pictures not showing even though uploaded the file. So will keep trying to see when fixed.

Also for the Markers section, it discusses "For large buildings such as box stores which have a single address, and addresses within shopping malls, it is recommended to NOT add the house number to Waze." It recommends to use PP or AP. That works for the store/restaurant name, but would recommend a change to say to use a residential place point, RPP

Actual Change is "For these locations, use a Place area or point." will become "For these locations, use a residential place point. A Place area or point with the store/restaurant name should also be added."

Yes, I agree that we should use RPP instead of HN for all buildings not directly accessible from the street listed in their addresses. I have done this for a long time.

Finally able to get pictures to load and display.
The new Force / Continue editing error message is included in all the pictures that I have updated.

All proposed changes that were discussed above have been made.

Thanks for all the help and recommendations.

Looks like good stuff was added in recently.


I have another proposal that can be seen on my page here.

This is proposed changes to the original content located here.

What are your thoughts? This change was brought about after looking at a UR and seeing some confusing wiki text. I took it to Discord and started discussing about what actually should be done and I tried to document it best as I could. I also added an image to show HN result vs RPP result when navigating.
