Thanks.I think we should also add something like this, perhaps a small subsection about reporting on freeways: "If you're on a freeway entrance ramp, and there's a reportable event (police car, accident, etc.) on the freeway itself, be sure to wait until you're actually on the freeway to press the Report button, so that drivers on the freeway will be notified. Conversely, if you're on a freeway, and there's a reportable event near an entrance or exit ramp, try to time your report so that entering/exiting traffic will or won't be notified, depending on whether it's relevant to them or not.
Sure, I agree, but at the same time how much do we need to micromanage these? I'm just hoping for a world with fewer "rain" and "vehicle stopped on shoulder" reports...making this feature work perfectly is just a pipe dream. It is Waze, after all!
I am all in favor of having a way to point reporters to a wiki page, but the real question is...How?
I travel a route on a daily basis and often see multiple reports for rain or snow at intervals along my route. I doubt those reporters would go to a wiki page to see if they are in compliance. Those reporters view those hazards as road commentaries rather than reporting an instance of a real problem. I know reporters are prevented from reporting too many things within a span of time, but there's no tracking of how many days they do it. Maybe the feature request ought to be an additional option besides the thanks/thumb's-up so that editors of a certain level can contact/remind the reporter of the rules.
