This is (and from reading the forum posts, apparently infamous) batusaikiller.
Allow to address the concerns listed on this forum about my edits. First of all it was not my intent to make any "bad" edits or to do any edit out of malice. I must admit that I was not aware
of any convention Waze had concerning street abbreviations before I made those edits. It was only after I noticed read something that sort of explained an established convention on Waze's UK editing site https://www.waze.com/wiki/index.php/Editing_ranks?title=How_to_classify_and_name_roads_(United_Kingdom)
Note that all of my edits were intended to be legit corrections as I saw a lot on inconsistency and misspellings on the Trinidad and Tobago map. For example, the end of a street name was either "Street" or "street" or "St" or "st" or "ST" or "St." or "st." or "Str" or some other variation. When I saw this I decided to have one consistent spelling and used my own convention (again, this was before I knew of a Waze convention) to allow easier reading for both human and software. My edits were not
but instead were misguided. I am more than happy to adjust the names to the abbreviated format as guided by https://www.waze.com/wiki/index.php/Editing_ranks?title=How_to_classify_and_name_roads_(United_Kingdom)
unless there is a separate guide for Trinidad and Tobago edits in which case please share with me and I'll be happy to be guided accordingly.
With regard to the specific post concerning
Unfortunately since I posted this I found out the problem is much more widespread than I initially thought, including adding every road/passage in a mall's parking lot, though I corrected that for the most part.
, I only corrected the misspellings that already existed in that parking lot
. For that Trincity mall parking lot the name of the streets were spelt "Trinicity
". I also agree that the streets of a parking lot should not be named but those were already there so I just followed the "convention" that I saw.
I also noticed some edits made by previous editors that seemed to be ported directly out of http://www.openstreetmap.org/
but were incorrect to begin with. Some of those areas are places I know well but the names were wrong.
I will repeat my none of my edits were intended to deface the map, on the contrary, there were made with the intention of improving the quality of the information.
