Road Closures

Postby HavanaDay » Wed Apr 24, 2013 3:02 pm

As I get more busy here at work I have been trying to get more organized with my Waze work. I have edited quite a few long term road closures in the state and would like to set up a list for the road closures so that everyone in the state can see and edit as needed.

I believe I have three options:

1) NC State to do list in the wiki - Might be an option but the US wiki pages by state probably needs to be reorganized to the new structure.

2) A common post here in the North Carolina State Topics

3) A post here linking to the Google Doc

What do you all think would work best for the community?

I like the idea of a Google Doc. That way we could all edit it as we are making changes or when we find out new information.

If we try to manage it here in a thread I think it will be confusing to keep track of the latest information on any given closure.

This is how we track things in CT using the wiki: https://www.waze.com/wiki/index.php/Connecticut_Construction It's linked to off the CT Main Page.

Each State should have their own Wiki Page(s) and it's just a matter of putting things into categories due to the reorganization.

I do like the idea of a google doc. It was my first inclination of how to set it up.

Andy your wiki looks good as well. Have you had much success with others editing it though and keeping it up to date. I think a Google Doc is the way to go with permissions and such. It just seems to make things more fluid and easier than a wiki page could be. One benefit I can see is that there is no owner of the wiki page which is why I was considering it.

Thoughts?

Yes, others have updated it several times. The nice thing is that changes can be easily tracked & rolled back if someone butchers the table code or vandalizes the page. And you don't need a gmail account to access it.

I poked around the wiki a bit. So I wouldn't be able to edit a page until I have another 69 - make that 68 after this - posts on the forums?

Well that sucks.

I have used the forums quite a bit, but I'm the type to search well before posting.

You should have access to the wiki from the day you joined Waze - you may have to login using "Anotherhiggins" as your username over there. If that doesn't work PM me and I may have something else for you to try.

Andy,

Where do you get to the main link to Connecticut from the wiki.

I searched for it and the wiki automatically points to the main page. (http://www.waze.com/wiki/index.php/Connecticut)

I just can't seem to find where the main Connecticut page is linked anywhere in the wiki besides doing a search. Do you just link to it through your signature? Also, do you care that I use your main page as a guide for North Carolina?

Every page has a "What links here" under "Toolbox" in the left hand column: http://www.waze.com/wiki/index.php/Special:WhatLinksHere/Connecticut.

The main USA Page (for now) is http://www.waze.com/wiki/index.php/Mapping_resources_%28USA%29, but with the Community Reorganization, that will probably change.

Also, do you care that I use your main page as a guide for North Carolina?
Have at it, many others have used it as a base for their state pages.
