Yep, that's roughly 130miles one-way. 75N-->285W-->85S-->I-185S. Takes approx. 2-2.5hrs. If anyone has a suggestion on a quicker route, I'm all ears; however, in my attempts, this has been the quickest.


Waze LiveMap agrees, though offers more direct secondary and tertiary alternatives, but they take longer.

So that's a good way to get your feet wet. Except for rural areas, the maps are reasonably mature. If you're looking for something to do, though, start verifying that the road-types are consistent with this table (https://wiki.waze.com/wiki/Road_types/U ... _reference). You'll be rather restricted on where you can edit for a while, but keep plugging away and use Waze every time you drive. You'll also need to be familiar with the Southeast Wiki, linked below. We can always use more good editors.

Welcome to Waze World!. FYI, Google paid $1b for Waze last summer.

Welcome to all the newer editors: toolie821, Zatnikitelman, Bigworm23, KK4TXZ, & Forny008. Sorry if I missed anyone.

Rule number one to successful editing is educate yourself via the multitude of Wikis. Start with the Southeast Wiki linked in my signature line, below.

Rule number two is if in the unlikely event you cannot find your answer in the wikis, ask in the appropriate forum. You've seen the Chat function by now, and recommend you know what the wikis say before you take any Chat advice. Many brain cells were harmed developing the wikis, so before you go saying or believing stuff in Chat, give the wikis their due.

Rule 3. Don't leave red (incomplete) edits. These are very visible in the Waze Map Editor (WME) and will draw unwanted attention, as will mapping every row in a parking lot.

Understand that if you stick with it long enough, you may find yourself moving up in the rank structure, which means you're not as limited in what you can edit. All those roads locked at level 3 or higher sure would be nice to be able to tweak a little, right? Well, guess what? As you move up, the senior editors expect you to do more to help those newer than you, which means less time for what we love: editing.

Now get to work!

Guten Abend. I live in Tennessee and edit mostly in TN & KY but I'm from Covington, GA and my family still lives there. I've been trying to pitch in were needed especially in terms of URs. I've done a lot of cleaning up in Greenville SC, Nashville & Knoxville so I guess I'll tackle to king of all URs in Atlanta :mrgreen: and see what I can do to help. Thanks

Hola! New(ish) editor, still level 1, in the Duluth/Norcross/Suwanee area. TLCarpenter, I've seen your name a couple times. :) Still trying to learn, having a bit of a hard time figuring stuff out, but it'll come eventually, I suppose. Just thought I'd pop in and say "hi!"
