Why not just apply to be an AM for the whole state?

If you're concerned about stale URs, contact your RC or any CM and point out where they're being ignored.

Request: (New Manager Creation) State Managers

Postby MGODLEW » Sat Jan 04, 2014 7:06 pm

I would like to request a new type of manager be created aside from Area Managers, a new manager called a State Manager. A State Manager would have the ability to edit anywhere in the state they are located in once approved by their own regions Regional Coordinator. I know with Rank 5 achievement you can be granted ability to edit anywhere in the United States, however I feel that someone being a Rank 4 should be eligible for some special privileges too since being a Rank 4 editor as of right now doesn't really grant you the ability to do anything special and a Rank 3 or lower can easily become a Area Manager. State Managers would be only for Rank 4 or higher who have proven creditable edits and are actively involved in the Waze community. Reason I am suggesting, I am not really concerned with Rank or Points, however I often see UR's outside my area of editing and they simple go untouched because there are no editors in that area. I feel like the longer a report goes unresolved, that causes Wazers to lose faith in Waze and then the community as a whole suffers due to people not using Waze compared to other navigation apps

State Managers can assist with the following:
- They can assist with direct takes delegated by the Regional Coordinator
- Moderate the forum for the State they are located
- Review edits & make sure editors are compliant with Waze established Wiki & Guidelines
- Maintain/Update the States Wiki Page
- Review confirmed Speed & Red Light Cameras and ensure accuracy
- Review all Interstate/Freeways for accuracy and lock to prevent damage
- Respond to URs across the states

I guess one could do that, I didn't know one could request an area that large?

I like this idea as well. Of course it would be problematic in MS, too many roads marked as in LA.
