2. We can't display a shield and a name. We hope to add this ability in the near future. In the meantime, it's best to give the primary name as the "I-80" or "US Hwy 101", and the 'local' name in the alias field.

Feedback I posted in the other thread:
AlanOfTheBerg wrote:Shields for properly-named in the Primary segment name for interstates are not being displayed per following the wiki-documented standard:

"I- 5 N" or "I- 5 S", and "State Rte 500 W" or "State Rte 500 E" for example, only displays the name and no shield. Segment directionality in the name is standardized, but it appears to disable the shield display.

Per other's thoughts, the restriction to the primary field will hopefully be removed. Just as "other mapping software and clients do" for displaying a name and multiple shield icons along the length of a roadway, Waze should eventually support multiples.

First, both the primary name, which is used for the shield display, and the shield appear on the segments, which I find odd.

Second, there are many times when there is no shield showing on the screen. In my opinion, a shield should be visible on-screen for any shield-enabled segment at any time, regardless of zoom. As one shield scrolls off the screen, another should be scrolling in.

In the plan. Not yet available. I have not heard a date suggested. A Euro-based veteran mega-mapper/driver may know otherwise.

Well in any case there were only 4 jumping mega-mappers at the meet, so it's not 100k or it isn't an automatic process.

Sure I can search for "VIP users" but I cannot see the full list. This is because on my computer, using Chrome with the screen in portrait, the nanorep box only covers about half the screen. The text and table run out the box on the right side and can't figure out how to scroll to see all the text in the point column of the table.

Woohoo, straight in at Mega Mapper! :)

Will these manifest as selectable moods on the client like the current executive moods?

I'm not sure the two are interlinked! VIP status was originally 50k edits with Lvl4 at 100k!

It was discussed in paris, seemed an easy addition, heard nothing since!
