How do we address the problem involving a town/city already named and entered into the system prior to this notice but was not suffixed properly? Take for example, Placer. There are 2 Placers: one in Surigao del Norte and one in Masbate. Is there an automatic way of changing Placer to Placer (S) or do we edit the name manually on every affected streets and places (point and area)?

P.S. Placer (M) in Masbate was properly labelled.

Hi sirs/maams I seem to have a problem in this area:

This area is supposedly the township of Banga, Aklan <Banga (A)>:
https://www.waze.com/editor/?env=row&lo ... 51.3272397

I could not add a city name to the roads. The editor says "You cannot add cities to this country".
In the dropdown only Banga of SC (South Cotabato) exists.

1.) Is there a possibility that we could create the "city" of Banga (A)?
2.) In the meantime, should the roads here remain town/cityless?

Salamat po ng marami.

No quick way since there might be segments from both locations with the same city/municipality and mass changing could mess up all of them. What we can do for places is to manually look at each one and change them

Hello there Wazer! :P At the moment, city naming privileges is available only to editors of a certain level. I hope you understand as we have had instances of new editors placing city names without following following the city naming convention that the community adheres to. The list can be found in the pinned editing resources :idea:

I will look into this area po :geek:

CITY: repeating names

Postby SpeedDzel » Fri Dec 14, 2012 8:36 am

... some map editors might be encountering error messages in CITY labeling,
"The highlighted road is too far from the city it was added to."

currently we cannot assign a province (state) label to our edits. so for the time being, do use the CITY with suffix as listed herein.

Haaappy Wazin!

CITY: repeating names of Cities in the Philippines

Postby SpeedDzel » Sun Dec 16, 2012 3:01 pm

Hello wazers!

apparently our issue on repeating names of CITY labels is a world wide concern, with the exception of the North America (US & Canada) server.

waze has been on this issue for a long time and is still being addressed. considering the number of countries involved in the world server (which we belong to) this is proving to be a gargantuan task.

so... with this waze has advised we employ a contingency for this matter...

hence, we have collated a COMPLETE list of Cities & Municipalities... and sorted & prepared a list of repeating CITY names.

kindly check your CITY area and affix the CODE enclosed in parenthesis in your respective edits.

This is in consideration for the Area Managers that befall this issue and to maintain uniformity within our domain and the whole waze community world wide.

Thank you for bearing with your favorite navigation app :)
