Since we can't make a redirect because these are not country-specific, we may need Kent and his wiki-foo to figure out how to get them appear higher.

However, since this road type is going to be removed anyway, I'm not sure there's a point in expending much effort on improving wiki searches for it.

I see your point.

I've recently added ROW, which was also added to the [[Glossary]].

The US forum has some of this defined, but as noted in the thread, not all is defined yet. Since this can differ (slightly?) by country, there may need to be country-specific subpages.

I tried to search for the in-app icons (i.e. the Hazard Pin, the Red Light Camera Icon, etc) got to https://www.waze.com/wiki/Icon_(disambiguation), but I was really looking for https://www.waze.com/wiki/Waze_Symbols. Can we add the Waze Symbols page to the Icon (disambiguation) page?

I don't think we have wiki guidance on it, which is why you could not find it. This isn't an "improve searching issue."

Sorry, you're right. :oops: I should've clarified, I included the rest, in case I was looking for the wrong terms. ;)

I would suggest that key words like "address" result in finding the new "House Numbers" page.
