I am having an big issue with the new UI. I am using Firefox.
Every time I go into waze from the google search. The UI defaults to Netherlands language.
I keep changing it to English, but it still reverts back to Netherlands. :o

For anyone on this thread following the undesired deletions issue, other editors figured out the steps to reproduce the problem 100% of the time, and scripts are not involved.

Per Vince, the devs have been informed. No further info was provided beyond that.

We're indeed waiting on a response.

In the meantime we also noticed that the problem occurs when you use the "Del" or "Delete" key on your keyboard to delete something. At first I couldn't reproduce the bug when it was reported because I wasn't using that key (Not in my editing habits).
If you instead click on the WME trash icon with you mouse (how I tried at first when prompted to delete), the bug does not happen. You should use that as a workaround for the time being.

Jiminy.

I just noticed what the new pending cameras icons look like.

Now that they are black and white - and blend in so delightfully well - I had completely overlooked all of the erroneous submissions piling up in my area.

Just deleted 24 of of them.

So nice to not have that annoying color contrast of the old tan/brown ones any more.

[/winky sarcasm]

On a serious note, someone pass a memo to the guys who designed/approved these UI changes that their grasp of contrast is so good/poor (depends on your point of view, I guess), that their efforts to camouflage these were successful for over two weeks!

If you were still active in the beta test community, you'd know this was just one of oh so many issues raised about the new UI and, surprisingly (hah) this, along with pretty much every other complaint, was brushed aside by HQ who, once again, chose to hunker down behind their "our designers know best" attitude and act all defensive when any of us dare to suggest their latest creation is anything less than perfect :roll:

Which is exactly why I stopped beta testing.

Lest my local supervisors mistake this for more ranting from me ;) .... contrarywise this is me standing up for the needs of the editors who look up to us to help them. They need function, not style, yes?
