PZ and kent,

Short version: See https://wiki.waze.com/wiki/Editing_restrictions and some related articles.

Long version:

I did a little digging into where that DAB actually pointed. Here's what I found.

The DAB entry item was put in on 10 May 2103.

The target page was edited the same date, and can be found here: https://wiki.waze.com/wiki/index.php?ti ... d_segments

It contains the following

Locked segments
When an editor locks a segment, it currently has two functions, both controlling:
Automatic adjustments
Editing ability
In the past, many segments were locked for other reasons that no longer exist, but the segments do not get changed unless they are edited again and the editor removes the lock.

-----------------

I believe it was me who moved that text out many months ago when I first "rationalized" the description of locking. Rather than embed the whole discussion in a couple of other topics that touched on locking tangentially, I created separate pages with brief and complete descriptions of the restrictions (what it is - area and locks; how to work with them or around them; etc.). That is the Editing Restrictions page, and a couple of other related pages.

if you want to me to trace it down more, I certainly can ... but I don't think it is necessary, as there are one or two entire articles dedicated to the topic. Just redirect your "shortcuts" there or to its specific headings.

The restrictions page needs some substantial editing due to the final form of automatic locks, formerly called traffic locks. However, to make those changes, we first must find out whether the same implementation now exists in other countries, or whether some still use the original traffic lock system or another variation.

In the future it helps to be specific when I change multiple pages and you want me to fix something. ;)

I found the reference you mentioned in the FAQ. I had included every element of locks in the body of the FAQ already, so I just deleted the final unnecessary sentence.

I'm sorry, but I am not sure if I follow the question in the long version. ;)

It wasn't a question. PZ was trying to hunt down where the link had pointed to, now that the referenced section name is gone. I just sleuthed it out and reported back.

I can search for "Map Issue" for WME editors but can't seem to search for client users.

Maybe titled it "Map Issue Report Etiquette for Client users"?

Maybe include some apps to provide short cut keys to have some standard info such as:

"uta" = waze ID: u-turn allowed here.

"Ows" = one way street

"Nlt" = no left turn

The waze ID is optional but useful in case we need to PM them for more info.

Just an idea to get more constructive reports rather than those reports that don't have blank info.

I agree that a disambiguation page for map issue topics could be useful. I don't know that we should be making new abbreviations for redirects, though. Ones that we already use, sure.

It would be nice to compile all those great video clips some of you have done into one page or more.

I can't seem to find this in wiki.

I've seen postings of youtube clips on how split or unsplit in the forum.

Now if there is a page that has all the URL links to this great videos, I'm sure it will help other new editors.

Better yet, why not link the videos into places in the Wiki that relate to the videos?

We have done some work on this finally and have a draft in progress to be titled "Roles and responsibilities". I think it has enough information to be moved into the main namespace for now with the draft construction notice on top, pending approval in a new thread.
