That's not good. I've been out the loop for a while so I didn't know that you had that amazing page. It looks good enough to publish. How have you not received any push, from others, to publish it?

Well the original impetus was that junction boxes that are created in the beta editor show in the production editor and cause the segments within them to be locked. Thus, if level 5 beta editors created a bunch of junction boxes, there would need to be an explanation for editors that came across them. However, once we learned that they do not effect routing, it became clear that the beta editors weren't going to create a bunch of them. Thus, there is not that much of a need for the average editor to read about them. Yet.

I would say post it if we are going to see these things around, even if we cannot edit/add them. At least we then know how they work (at least as much as the people adding them know).

Well, according to many, "if it's still in Beta is shouldn't be discussed" :roll: . I tried that with tunnels and got crap for it, even thought it was already announced that it's going live.

With the issue of JBs, I would suggest holding off on it, making a post in the beta thread for the time being, and only make an entry into the wiki that if an editor runs into a locked segment due to JBs to contact their local SM/CM/RC.

This is what you get for half-assing/releasing something, but tell us we can't talk about it or let others know. :roll:

It would be nice to have guidance in the wiki entry to include a note near the JB for editors to know who to contact etc.

That's an easy one.

Please contact your local SM for questions, concerns and any edits related to the JB

The size of a Junction box cannot exceed 1 kilometer.
Is this a linear distance limit for one side, or corner-to-corner? Or is it an area limitation? ie 1 sq.km

As per staff this is a linear 1 km limit N-S, or E-W.

Edit: think bounding box. If you draw an imaginary 1km² square box around the JB, and the JB pokes out at any point, then it's too big.

What if said SM doesn't have the ability to use or edit JB's. (me!)
