Not sure we want stuff doubled-up, though there is some duplication already. The last two icons are already in the Quick-start guide. Not sure about the chat bubble one. Chat should get its own section in the Map Display Area portion of the interface and controls page, yes.

Where do you want comments? Here, or on the discussion page?

I'd make a change to Starting the Editor:
---
Begin at http://www.waze.com/editor. Either log in or choose practice Mode.
Choose the correct part of the world from the top bar (Infrastructure).
---
-Logging in first, gets that dialog box out of the way, and your eye would be more drawn toward the edges of the screen.
-I don't like the term 'Infrastructure', but can't think of anything better at the moment.

Top Bar also has access to dashboard and logout. - should include, just for completeness.

Quick scan through the rest has me wondering if it should be broken up to reduce size.

I could have sworn I helped build up the editor chat page. Shouldn't a link to it exist to IG on the display page?

I made a tiny edit about red roads to clarify that they represent segments with incomplete information. Since we seem to have consensus, this draft looks great, and any new images can't be added for the time being anyway, I think this should be published

Agreed. No need to have them replicated on multiple pages. The quick start guide is one of the first links in the editing manual.

Voludu2, I think we are open to you creating a draft page to be reviewed if you like.

Yes, that image is outdated. The elements in "Top Bar" are now over on the left and in the setting menu. I believe many images are outdated. That is the reason for the note at the top of the page.

Agreed.

But I can take one small bite of it at a time.
What first...up-to-date images or reorganization?

Personally, if I was depending on this page, I'd want the correct and current images in a disorganized array before perfectly organized images that are wrong.

Note that I am working in parallel on the last section on restrictions and aligning it with the Restrictions page. My goal is to have this page's restrictions just be a summary with the full page covering the details with all the nuances. I think we have made some updates to this section over time with good info, but it should have gone into the detailed page.
