As if the champs discussing something will make Waze fix outstanding bugs. Very peculiar.

Excellent, I'm eager to see the results. And any movement forward.

I decided to try a different approach and sent a message pointing to this discussion through nanoRep.

Received this response:
In reply to your inquiry "report a bug"
The Champs are gonna meet this Saturday and they are going to talk about it.
Thanks for the update.
Best Regards,
Natali

IIIRC it already is and was so. Even a traffic, detected in the opposite direction, is said to immediately clear the closures in "my direction".

Sent from a touch display, which took care of perfectly scrambling my thoughts.

Carl, maybe join the thread in direct access...it might help to put some weight on the issues with this feature...

Also, whila I'm at it, just a quick thought:

The need to proof a report as legit comes from the fear of false reports (my hypohtesis)
Maybe there won't be a need for harsh restrictions on accepting reports, if just a single Wazer going over THE WHOLE closed segment would reset the closure, therefore allmost imediately clearing any false reports...

I continue to think that you should need fewer (not more) closure reports to cause the routing server to reroute all users on major well traveled roads. It seems to me that one closure report from a single trusted user should be sufficient to confirm that the absence of real-time traffic data on a road that normally has real-time traffic data is due to a closure.

It is the less traveled side roads where waze doesn't have enough data to show an absence of normal traffic that multiple user reports might be need for verification that the road is actually closed. The system just seems backwards to me.

I might share your doubts, but at least Noam has taken a look on it...what I don't think about this thread...twelve pages and not a single comment from the almighty Waze himself ;)

Maybe the globals in this thread might join in the topic I started in the direct access to get a focus on the various problems stated here. At least our common request for more effect of reports from high level users might be heard.

During the shield implementation I learned, that even single users can have special privleges within the app (I've been the only one seeing the shields in my country during a test phase), so it might be possible to get at least CM the power to close a road on a single report.

I doubt.

Anyway, any movement would be gladly welcome. Otherwise RC will indefinitely remain as yet another functionality solely for PR purposes.

Well, as there are no Bugs, maybe another approach might help. Today I had liked to use that feature, but my report was only usable for myself, all other CM reported a no show.

So I'm going to report this in the way of a normaly working function that might have gone sour, maybe we get some movement into the story... ;)
