A little on the late side? ;)
Well no rush, I guess. Quality over quantity 8-)

Hi,

Agree - We will elaborate on the community reorganization goals, methods and add explanations.

Thank you for your feedback!

Ori, I think that Waze should catch on this list, possibly revise it according to own plans and enhance any missing expertises, and add it to the main Community Reorganization article. I'm sure it would clarify a lot for many readers.

Ho All,

for first I agree with porubcan, this new community infrastructure is new for all of us. A little bit more information will be welcome. Than we can start discussion with other active users from our countries. (I am not sure, if all "senior wazers" from our countries are able discussed in English - for example my English is horrible and I guess I am not alone with this problem). For Me, some items in questionnaire (namely second part of questionnaire) are really soon for fill in.

Ori,

Local community structure is fine, but the participation with experts on global level is something new to most of us.

I would add my understanding of expert's subjects, please correct me if I miss some point:

Client - aimed on performance/bugs/improvement of existing and suggestions of future functionality of Waze app. Including beta testing and close interaction with devs.

IOS/android - aimed on platform specific client's behavior, basically its interractions with system and other apps.

Editing - aimed on map editing in actual WME, setting rules and defining good practice for editors, cooperating on WME scripts creation and testing, then advertising them to editors community... and making suggestions to devs regarding WME performance & functionality.

Beta editor - aimed on close cooperation with both - devs and Editing experts - in order to get new functions developed correctly and ensuring new WME release with good performance and minimum of bugs.

Navigation - aimed on tuning routing rules together with requirements for map data. TTS, voice guidance, etc.

Points - aimed on point awarding system and ranks - to get system "cheatproof", justified and clearly communicated to users. Also answering points related questions from users.

Social media - FB & G+ local fan pages and similar stuff

Localisation - aimed on consistency of translation strings and coordination of transiflex projects. Also new TTS languages.

Hope I got it right.

if it looks strange, it's my phone's fault

Ori, I went through the both announcements from you and Shirli and am still confused a bit.

If I understand right from Shirli the "local champs" will be active in local forums etc. and lead local community. This seems to be clear alhough I am missing this in your form.

While the "experts" have to monitor and participate in the relevant international forums (English knowledge mandatory in this case), am I right?

Then we have the "coordinator" of local community and "coordinators" of the expert groups too, on local or global level?

You ask in the form for optional proposal of expert leaders in local community. It's unclear here if you mean the "coordinator" role of an expert group here and if at local or international/global level. Or if you mean to propose just other potential experts here.

Would be nice to have an option to add short comment in the form.

Hi,

When we say "Client" expert, we basically mean "Waze app" expert (rather than someone who wants to be "Editor" expert).

When we say iOS/Android expert, we're looking for die hard iOS or Android fans, which are more familiar with the operating systems and devices.

The Czech and Slovak community is light years ahead of most communities around the world - I am proud to say that you guys are one of the role models for other communities.
So basically what I say is, that in your case, the community structure is already here, we're just making it formal.

it would be very helpful, if someone give us quick overview of each expert's subject.
for me it is not clear what is the difference between client/iOS/Android experts, etc.
some basics regarding the subject and also regarding requirements on those who would apply for the subject would be gladly welcome.

Shirli also informed about "local champs", but there is no way mentioned in questionnaire to apply for this.

thanks

For those who don't know what's going on here, also this link should be added to the initial post.

Only your email is mandatory. As for the others - you've only got to enter the username.

Yes, yes, I started to write the post before I listed the form all the way down. Then I removed this part.

I guess so... but when I want to support let's say you, what fields shall I enter you in? I can't even remember what OS you smartphone runs :)

It's Android. :) Yes, that's difficult, we can know these only from the forum discussions. I have more coleagues in mind I will propose as editor experts but there are not many other fields I could fill with even one name. Let's hope that the role description will make this thing more clear. And if we start with at least somebody, we can always add more later.

Forgot one thing - it's not clear and written but my guess is that we will have common expert groups (and one coordinator?) for CZ+SK but how will it be handled for localization? In general, it shouldn't be problem to have it common too but it depends on the new community system functionality we don't know yet.
