I've enabled the U-turn and forced it to say "Make A U-turn".

We should always be commenting on URs whether we close them or ask for new info. I use a set of boilerplate responses that cover most situations.
https://wazeopedia.waze.com/wiki/USA/User:DwarfLord/UR
The list is broken up with sections 1 & 2 for initial contact. 3, 4, & 5 are for asking for more info. 6 is for closing reports. If you read through the various responses you'll get a feel for how things work. Also, if things aren't spelled out like the report you've linked to and the reporter just doesn't respond we wait 7 days before closing the report as Not Identified. The report you've linked to is somewhat uncommon in that it tells you everything you need to know and can be solved quickly.

A couple of links that can help get you going are here

https://wazeopedia.waze.com/wiki/USA/Edits_to_avoid

Edit: It's also not too late to add the response "Volunteer responding to your report of a map issue. Thanks to your report we've found and fixed a problem with the map. The fix should reach handheld devices within a week, but on rare occasions it can take longer. Cheers!"

Hey, sorry I've taken a while to get back to you. The official place to ask for an unlock is in the Unlock forums at https://www.waze.com/forum/viewforum.php?f=622
However you can post here and I or someone else can take care of it. Or you can PM me personally. It's not a bother, it's what I'm here for.

Are you in the Discord chat group yet? If not you're more than welcome to join.

Hey, I see you've got a UR here that you're working.
https://www.waze.com/en-US/editor/?env= ... st=7719654

To find info on this use the county GIS. The one for Snohomish County is at http://gis.snoco.org/maps/property/viewer.htm
This will bring up a map of just Snohomish County. It's not nearly as easy to navigate. On the left hand side there's map controls. Click Zoom In and then click and drag a box on the map. It will zoom it in there. If you click on the map it will also zoom in but at very small increments. You'd need to click Zoom Out to get it to zoom back out. Etc....
You'll want to zoom in, particularly the part next to I-5 between Lynnwood and Mill Creek.

Once you find the area on the map that corresponds with the UR at the top of the GIS page on the left panel click "VIEW PROPERTY INFORMATION". You can now click on the individual parcels to get the addresses. You'll see you need to change the name to part of the street. Draw a new road, intersect at the corner where the name change should happen, then delete the street you just drew. You'll be left with two segments and you can change the name of the one you need.

After you do that save. Then you can add house numbers.
https://wazeopedia.waze.com/wiki/USA/Ho ... ers_in_WME
The interface has changed a bit since this wiki article was written but it's essentially the same. I will advise you that when you work house numbers don't try to do all of them at once. Work in small batches. Getting an error after 20 minutes of work just to start over again sucks. Do a few, save, a few more, save. If you get any that need to be "forced" or some other error it won't let you save until you get that resolved. It's very touchy. I mean it, don't work large batches. Once you get it all saved to your liking click the EXIT at the top where Save usually is. You can't do anything else in WME until you exit.

Let me know if you need any help.

Not trying to steal edits. Sorry. Let me know if you have any other URs that need any guidance.

Broadway lowered so you can connect and edit. Check all turns into and out of the segment after you save.

Level 2 comes at 3000 quality edits. Editing area is given to you based on where you've driven with the app on. You don't necessarily have to be actively navigating anywhere. But the area does expire after 90 days from the last time you were in an area with app on. So if you use Waze to go to / from work on a weekly basis you keep resetting that drive area every time you have the app on while going somewhere.

Connected. I'd add a Residential Place Point for those addresses on that road. When you do that use the city for the actual mailing address, not the actual city. In this case it's both Maltby but sometimes it isn't (Renton encompasses a lot of surrounding city names for example).
