That is plausible.

The only notice I see for this was in a beta editor thread, dated June 16. Although, I didn't execute a very thorough search. In that post, it was worded, "Segment/Landmark owners (creators) are no longer given special permissions"

Anticipatory locking? It just knows you are going to hit level 4 any day now.

I locked myself !?

Postby medim84 » Fri Jul 05, 2013 7:22 am

I created and updated road segment, which is now locked for level 4 editor (Obviously, I didn't do it :) ,because I am level 3 editor)
Now I can't do anything.
How is that possible?

Hey there, we are investigating this. We have a theory, let me know if you think this is possible:

1. You created these segments.
2. Someone edited these segments and locked them to 4 (because he had a rank high enough to do that).
3. You were still able to update these segments because you are the creator of the segment, and so you edited them while they were locked as 4
4. Recently we did a change that even if you created the segment that does not give you indefinite permissions to edit it.
5. Now you cannot edit them because they are still locked as 4 while we change the permission rules.

What do you think? Is that possible or are we missing a different bug?

We released this feature to the production environment on July 2nd. I think that is it.
If anyone else sees something similar, let us know.
