I know this is not related, and I know I haven't been around as much, so I guess I must have missed this discussion...

Doubt it, the discussion has been ongoing since at least 2011 - https://www.waze.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=276&t=103908

That is the discussion I recall. I do not recall ever settling on the idea that "junction" is an acceptable shorthand for "node" or "junction node". If you need to spell it out with two words every time, fine, but if it walks like a node, talks like a node, and the editor calls it a node, then it's at the very least a "node".

Agreed, but that is what has been in the wiki since at least 2011 and we have never settled on changing it.

What's worse is there's two objects in the data model with Junction in their name; junctions (roundabouts) and bigJunctions (Junction Boxes), neither of which are the node objects which are at the end of segments and everything that interacts with those objects calls them node.

Can this glossary discussion move to the glossary topic, where some kind of discussion about the glossary page can result in Improvements to the glossary page?

In the meantime -- can this discussion on rewording of revcon guidance proceed, or should it be put on hold until the discussion of glossary terms for nodes, junctions, and geometry points/handles is completed?

Bumping this ancient thread because I see that revcons are still in the glossary and the page it links to still says they negatively affect routing, which is no longer the case.

Revcons can also affect routing instructions, by causing the routing engine to see a possible route where none is allowed. This may cause it to issue an unnecessary but valid instruction, a questionable instruction, or, in unusual circumstances, increases the likelihood of creating an illegal routing plan.

We can fix this right now in the USA page. Global doesn't appear to be maintained, so probably will just stay wrong
