An initial draft of a Junction Box page is here: https://wiki.waze.com/wiki/User:CBenson/Junction_Box

Suggestions, edits and other comments are welcome.

I have revised the page to incorporate suggestions that I am aware of that were made in hangouts.

Looks really good. I have a few suggestions.

1. We generally have a lead section with no section heading. Your first section would work perfectly. Just remove the heading.

2. Raise all headings up one level. Your top level "Junction Box" is already present by virtue of the article page itself. Besides you just removed it in step 1. ;)

3. Traditional Wiki pay layout tries not to repeat the article name in all the headings. Normally you can create the heading without using the term because the entire article is about that term. Makes the TOC a bit easier to read. For example instead of "Errors When Creating A Junction Box" you can say "Errors during creation" or maybe "Errors when saving" might be more applicable here.

When you are closer to final, I can help with formatting to have the image float left and right so the text wraps around the images. It helps to make the page flow a little better.

Thanks for the suggestions. I'm not sure where this should go in the overall structure of the wiki. So if those that are managing the structure of the wiki have suggestions that would great.

I've updated the page. I've not included anything about naming or providing the address of the junction box because I don't know what we plan to do with those properties.

Kent do you want to work on the formatting? Ohad has reviewed the content. When this is approved we should update some related pages to refer to the junction box page like the glossary and the map editor interface page. Other places to consider would include the Junctions Style Guide, the turn-restriction page and the discussion of the U-turn penalty.

I can do the formatting after PesachZ completes that section.

When junction boxes were released in the beta editor, I didn't realize that they would not yet effect routing. Given that beta editors can't yet solve routing issues by adding junction boxes, I would not expect many to be added yet. Thus, it now seems less imperative to get this page out to the entire editing corp. I am fine with us taking our time to make the page as clear and correct as possible.
