And also it says that for first time blocked your account is blocked for 24 hours and this is my first time, I haven't even been flagged for reporting I still don't understand why my account is blocked but is supposed to be 24 hours and is already almost 3 days
Thanks,

Sorry I wasn't aware of the forum so I couldn't see the message, also I apologized for the pictures but for some reason the Waze camera takes its time to take a picture which is the reason why my picture looks like that
Also it would be a good idea if this important messages can be send to the inbox in the map to be aware
Thank you for your message, have a great weekend and stay safe
Thanks,
Juan

I know that, and that's what I do, I always take the picture while im standing in the light orvin traffic but as I have said many times, the Waze camera has too many issues and one of them is that it takes up to 10 seconds to take the picture after the bottom is press. So I take I picture while im standing but because the Waze camera is so slow by the time it takes the picture im already moving again,
I do not take any pictures while driving that would be distracted driving and im not putting my life or other people's life in risk of having an accident just to take a picture, so I suggest if you can take a look at the issues of the Waze camera that would help a lot to get better pictures
Thanks,
Juan

We made multiple attempts to contact you by forcing a forum account and sending you messages and responding to all your submitted error reports, but it seems we were not very clear.

The reporting block is not due to excessive hazard reports, but instead due to the unusually high amount of place pictures that were unrelated to the businesses submitted for, the high amount of map error reports for issues we told you we do not map (like driveways to new constructions sites, driveways to buildings that have single, very obvious entrances) and for excessive place updates only to add services that were not possible for those places.

It looks like your editing block has expired as I just went through another 10 or so updates. The back of a Starbucks is not a valuable picture, or a picture taken from 300 meters where 1/2 of the picture is sky.
Feel free to reach out to me to further discuss what constitutes a quality picture or place updates or you could review our guidelines here: https://wazeopedia.waze.com/wiki/Canada ... ce_Editing

Here is an example where Canyon Creek is supposed to be in the picture.

locojd: If it helps, I'll post a list of comments that have been made by several other editors over the past few weeks in a map comment in the area you have tried making changes in. It might help to go through each of those areas in Wazopedia a bit to get a sense of why you are getting pushback from editors and area managers:


  • User locojd1 has been aggressively placing numerous UR's and PUR's here. Several requesting PLR's for virtually every structure here - many are unwarranted, but evaluating whether others make sense without segmenting up major roadways too much.
  • Carefully examine places added and modified by locojd1. Many permanently closed ones being added. Several errors, and miscategorizations. Also, several PP's being added where RPP's already exist and others which should be RPP's. Lots of case and spelling errors.
  • Many nonsensical PURs such as adding take-out to a hair salon and an attempt to delete a McDonald’s that is temporarily closed due to COVID-19. Also a UR stating that “there is absolutely no traffic at all in Hurontario Street”.
  • Also been placing SL reports for SL's that are already correctly set
  • 8 different PURs createdd by locojd1 on April 8th
  • locojd1 is making completely nonsensical edits such as changing names to entirely lower case, moving EPs to the middle of parking lots and illogically changing categories.

In general, less might be better than more, specially with places. Accuracy, spelling, and appropriate capitalization is much more important than having a description and every little place listed. The actual accurate business name is important. Items like "takes reservations", "outdoor seating", "take out","drive-thru", "delivery" etc are intended for dining establishments, and not, for example, hospitals. (I believe you were referred to the places Wazopedia for this).

Also, in general, if a place you add or a change you make is being removed, or a request you make is rejected, it is being done by an editor senior than you who probably has good reason to. So trying to add it again and again will just expend a lot of editor time that could be used doing other things and get them to request a block for you again.
