If it doesn't exist in the wiki, it should be put there, because it would hopefully prevent novice editors from making improper splits. It should also emphasize to never split a road without experienced (AM+) help/advice

I don't believe anyone has created that content. And yes that would be a great place to put it. Did you want to give it a shot?

It would be best explained in a short video, which I don't have the facilities to create. If anyone else could do it it would be great.

Countries are welcome to say they follow the guidelines of other countries and link to them with a note on those pages saying it also covers them.

I built a page for Regional Coordinators and started a discussion in this thread if anyone wants to contribute to the conversation.

Got one that I couldn't find. Base Node. Anyone know where that would go in the wiki?

Is there a list of USA Country Managers? I'm well aware of the RC page but after 10 minutes of searching can't find a list of CMs. Maybe it's there somewhere and I'm just dense... :oops:

There is nothing currently in the Wiki on CMs, but I did bring it up in this thread.
I have been on the new State template for over a month now and have done little else. Once the State template is completed and launched I plan to touch on this one.

Common editor mistakes
Common editor errors
common editing errors

I think searches like this should probably redirect to https://wiki.waze.com/wiki/Incorrect_edits, a very useful document. I have added "common editing mistakes" as a redirect to https://wiki.waze.com/wiki/Incorrect_edits because I simply cannot remember to search for incorrect edits. That's just me. :)

Information on locking standards.

I posted a separate thread to create that content in the best map editing practices, and added it to my states page.

Traffic Locks are hard to find, partially because the [[Lock (disambiguation)]] lists locked segments, but that section linked to doesn't exist. There's a small section at the end which links to editing restrictions, but that page doesn't mention traffic locks either.

I added traffic locks to the disamb page, and created two redirect pages to it "Auto lock" and "Auto locks".

I didn't fix the locked segments link or the link https://wiki.waze.com/wiki/Locked_segme ... ed_road.3F on the locked segment redirect page and the corresponding FAQ, because I'm not entirely sure where they should link to. Perhaps they need to link directly to the editing restrictions page, and have that page updated with the missing information.

Fixed the DAB and FAQ pages.

You left the link " [[Editing rank#Locked segments|locked segments]]" in there which doesn't go to anywhere. The section it references has been removed.
