I think it's a bad idea, because when users who don't know how to use the editor leave themselves personal notes and then forget about them there is going to be a pile of things that don't get fixed.

Now, if these automatically became public after a set amount of time (one, two weeks?), I could go for that.

For now, you can do what a lot of us do - use a two or three letter keyboard shortcut (built into iOS, addon app for Android) that translates into something like "Please do not edit or close without contacting 'Flhoest' in the Waze Forums at www.waze.com/forum" and then I usually tack on a some abbreviation (or a word or two at most) to trip my memory (usually comes out as gibberish to anyone looking, but it makes sense to me).

Personal URs have been suggested to the developers and are under consideration.

Community would agree with you. Developers might have a different view of the priority however!

I think this is the way I had hoped it would work if/when it comes to fruition.

[Feature request] : Note for edition

Hi There,

Today, I was driving to the office and noticed some are that need to be improved. Obviously, I forgot most of them once in the office or once back home for editing.

I would like to suggest the following :

- As for traffic notifications, create a button for changes that keep the GPS position in our profile. Nothing is shared with the community, this is personal editing notes.
- Once home, and connected to the map editor, a new tab called note for edition is created

It is then easy to remind yourself where the issue is then it can be fixed in a second.

Is there a public for this idea ? ;)

Have a great day.

Fred.

Great !

And what is the community thinking about it ? I think this is a great added value to the existing product ! ;)
