Waze Map Editor (WME) manual in the Wiki

Postby Wolfeye » Fri Aug 17, 2012 9:28 am

I believe you should have maximum of 3 levels of pages. So that you won't click away not knowing where you came from. You would rather have a few, very long, pages with this automatically generated table of contents.
Let's take Map Editing for an example. Either you'd want to know how to edit or you won't. If you do, you must now everything about it to understand and do it correct. You could have just one huge page with everything there is to know about editing. And before you even think about logging in to WME you should read that page, from top to bottom, at least once. You could have the basics (how to log in, which button to click, "and then save your work!"), when and where to use different road types, what to name them and why.
So take the Manual, BEP, How to label and name roads and Junction style guide and put them together at just one page.
Then you will know where to look to find your answer. Just go to the page about editing and find the right chapter in the table of contents.

One page about using the client.
One page about edit the map.
One page about "the rest".

But that's just my simple opinion...

Waze Map Editor (WME) manual in the Wiki

The problem is that the search function really sucks and often, it's hard to find a link to some pages from pages that the new users are likely to be reading.

After they're done reworking all the pages, someone needs to work on a good table of contents that is well organized. And maybe a few "related topics" links for the bottom of each wiki page.

Waze Map Editor (WME) manual in the Wiki

Editors,

I'm happy to present the beginning framework of the new map editor (WME) manual in the wiki. I have written several new pages, building on the layout of some of the existing Cartouche pages, but rewriting from scratch and including all new screenshots.

The head/top page at the moment is http://www.waze.com/wiki/index.php/Waze_Map_Editor and there are already several branches from there, such as in the Editing Manual section. There are also several links to pages which have not been re-written or discarded as a link due to no longer be relevant, so there is much work still to do.

Any feedback, go ahead and leave it. But this is a wiki, so it belongs to the community. I'm just kickstarting it.

-Alan

FYI: this "trick" will become unnecessary in native WME as there will be a layers refresh available. At least one user-contributed extension/plugin does this today.
