OK. I have gone through the Wiki and updated the two articles on the automated map problems and the user generated update requests. I have cross linked the articles to each other to ensure users understand they are different types of issues and to help people find them. I have also created a number of internal Wiki redirects to enable people to find either list with a number of different search terms.

I would appreciate if anyone can think of a search term to find either of these two articles that do not reach them, please report them so we can create a redirect for them to help less experienced Wiki searchers. ;)

If you can determine what is wrong with the map based on what you see currently on the map and with the user reported information, then correct it on the map and mark it fixed. If not then you have to consider leaving it for someone else to determine, or mark it as not identified. I think the current Wiki says that.

Are you asking some other question?

I am trying to understand your proposal. Do you recommend we modify this page http://www.waze.com/wiki/index.php/Upda ... Map_Editor to include a link to the page you showed? I assume that is to provide related background information?

Update Request Common Issues

UR stands for Update Request. Make sure that's in there too.

...although I would suggest that if you're not sure, to leave it and ask your local AM or a CM.

Currently there is nothing that CAN be done with those problems, which is probably why the omission in the wiki.
Until we have 2 way communication with reporters all that can be done is mark them as Not Identified and hope that they come onto the forums.

The thing to remember when looking at MPs is that it's just Waze indicating there might be a problem but isn't necessarily something that needs to be changed. "Missing road" MPs that go through a small parking lot, "most users didn't follow the suggested route", or "roads too far apart" at a properly configured intersection most likely don't need more than verifying there are no problems and marking the MP solved (as long as you're sure it's right).

As Andy said, do not mark MPs as not identified. That just rattles the IGN cage which can cause more harm than good. If in doubt, leave it for someone else to look at, contact another editor, or post a question in the forums.

As far as URs go, I see no problem marking them unidentified if there is insufficient information whether that be lack of suggested/driven route traces or lack of user input. The "not identified" button will send an email to the reporting user saying more information is needed and point them to the forums.

Also, something to keep an eye out for UR pins that are sort of MPs. You'll see "waze automatic" (or similar) in the description. I seem to recall (haven't seen one lately) that these get generated when Waze thinks the city/state/country assigned to the segment is incorrect but there may be other cases.

What about "Map Issue"? That is what the button in the client is labeled.
