I made a small update to the section on bridge creation. At 4-2ay junctions, it does not leave behind an unneeded junction.

Please undo this change if you think it is incorrect.

I made a series of very minor visual and typo tweaks to the the page.
  • Using the {{key press}} template
  • Added some links
  • Fixed typos
You can see all the changes by comparison here. The updated page is here.

I improved one sentence in the section https://wiki.waze.com/wiki/Map_Editor_I ... ndo_Button. I think this says the same thing more simply and clearly. The meaning is not changed.

The Me Tab and editor rank sections of this page are obsolete and need to be updated to match the current changes in WME. WME no longer displays the cones, and there is no me tab. Each rank has a unique avatar, and to the right of it, under the wazer name it says "Level #"

I corrected an error in the section on closure permissions. Editors with RTC area can create and edit closures on segments which are outside if their editable area, but within their RTC area.

Top Bar Missing

Postby oGILSCARo » Wed May 10, 2017 11:53 am

I find the Top Bar missing on my display:

This occurs when I use Firefox, and also when I use Chrome:

Does the "Map Editor Interface and Controls" page need to be changed?

Yes, that image is outdated.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 I believe many images are outdated.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.

In my opinion, this is one of the best and most useful pages. When I was a new editor, it was my favorite, and I did my best to contribute to small improvements at the same time I was learning all the basics from it. But it needs a major overhaul as it is getting pretty long along with being a bit out of date. It might need some subpages.

The amount of time I have for WME stuff is small right now.
But I can take one small bite of it at a time.
What first?

up-to-date images or reorganization?

Agreed.

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.

Here's a proposal to fix the "top bar" problem:
Replace this image combo:
[ img ]Wme31_hey_username.jpg
[ img ]WME_Tabs.png


With two new images (or maybe 3) showing the same thing, plus the new stuff that goes above the username -- snapshot mode.

I would also remove the section in "top bar" since it is not there any longer and update the section titled "settings". I"ll post a link when I have some updated text.
or if anyone else wants to take a shot at it, please go ahead and CREATE A NEW FILE IN YOUR WIKI NAMESPACE with the proposed changes. We can all comment.
