It appears you just joined Waze from the date in the forum. The Editable areas doesn't update right away after drivers are processed. Give it a day or two to appear.

Are you logged in? You aren't in Play Mode with the red banner at the bottom? After you draw the road, are you naming it properly, following the guidelines?

Covered in the second link I sent you under "drawing the road" section. Also covered in http://www.waze.com/wiki/index.php?titl ... tart_Guide.

You will probably save yourself and us some time if you read the documentation. That's why we wrote it.

Shift+click I find works better for me. Less "movement" of the mouse while clicking.

Uh, yeah. He already mentioned "all is well."

I see I am a little late on this thread, but I too am sometimes unable to edit.
I am a level 2 editor, so have edited a fair amount, but on some random days, I can see my 'Areas' tab has my average 1200km. but my 'Drives' tab is blank and I am unable to edit.
I just turn off my computer and come back a few hours later and am then able to edit, and my 'Drives' tab shows all my routes.
updates on maps take a few days anyway, so I am in no rush if unable to edit at the time.

One thing to check...are you using the same login account on your phone and your computer?

Does any drives show up yet under my drives or is areas shown under Areas tab?
I assume you are connected to www.Waze.com and based on your sig that should be correct.
It might just be that your drives have not been processed yet.

If you look at some of the stickied posts regarding FAQ, that should provide the required info.

I tried that on a brand new account a few days ago, and even though my areas and drive showed up the next day, I still could not edit in the exposed area until a day or two after.

Just give it a day or two, they will appear.

Edit : actually meant you will get editing rights in the exposed area.
