It is possible to identify a certain turn as 'difficult', which will apply a routing penalty on it if you have this option enabled in the app (enabled by default). See this wiki page (which is still a work in progress) for more details: https://wiki.waze.com/wiki/User:AlanOfT ... cult_Turns

The level 3 there is an error, I've come to conclude. It should say 2 instead. There's a bit of configuration set incorrectly. This issue has been reported and will hopefully be fixed soon (even though it's purely a visual mistake).

I just had a report from a level 1 user who gets the message he needs to be level 3 before he can manage the UR. Either the text is wrong (adding a level to the normalized level instead of the 0-based level?) or there's an additional rule for managing URs outside of the management area. I'm a bit hesitant to create a bug topic about this as I'm not certain whether there actually is a bug.

I saw this in the first post saying "* Changes in permissions: L1 editors cannot close URs". However, I see remarks yesterday saying that "You need to be level 3 or higher to handle Update Requests" at the bottom of the UR pop-up window. Thank you.

Very likely because many new users don't know the various editing standards in their region, and no doubt some have never communicated with their respective community. I know we had some that went around and set a ton of them to difficult turns without any discussion and caused a number of issues. We had to go back and remove all of them which took a lot of time away from other tasks.

Huge thanks for the UR-closing restriction to L2+!

As it happens, I proposed this 3 and a half years ago. After a year with no traction I was discouraged. After two years I was frustrated and depressed. The third year I became resigned and fatalistic. After that I went into a bit of a decline.*

Anyway it's wonderful to see this happen!

Then just manually promote them locally to L2.



I also agree with this idea and the new permissions. This will also help promote the use of the Mentoring program for newer editors, and bring those lower ranking editors into the community to work together.
