I just got an email from a map problem report in Louisville, ky, letting me know that waze routed them to a service entrance in Denver international airport. Can someone get on that? Thanks.
Wtf?

Kerstmis means Christman. Yeah I could see how that'd become problematic in July.


My guess: user tried to report "kermis" (fancy fair) as a reason for a closure but the autocorrection got it wrong. And who is Christman? :-)

Missing road (user reported)

Please provide some details as to the nature of your problem.

There are two entrances both are one way the circle is a two way circle for some reason it always sends me the long way around the circle
jasonh300(6) on July 14, 2013
The circle is one way. You have to travel around the circle counterclockwise.


Seems this user doesn't like going the long way around the roundabout when making a left.

I ran into similar. Submitted at an intersection with 3 gas stations, one on either corner. "Gas station closed" Me: Which of the gas stations has gone out of business? "The one at the intersection".

Even with the communications feature (beta), you can still pick out the rocket scientists...

Wrong street name

jasonh300(6) on July 11, 2013
Which street, and what is the correct street name? This report was made in the middle of a parking lot.

And then there's people who don't like bowties:

Problem: East and West W Broad Street need their own street at the intersection instead of all roads connecting at 1 point.


I guess I could do a twisted cross instead, but I imagine they won't like it any better and it works the way it is.

I think that they meant to request that all those business landmarks need to be deleted. :lol:

...but a level 6 created it, it must be good, right? :roll:

That's a good one! I know from experience that you don't get a good reception inside the Supermarket. I bet this was a Refrigeration tech or roofer on the roof of the store with waze still running. :lol:
