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!

That's actually quite fast in terms of waze time ;)

An L1 editor can still respond to URs and work issues, they just can't close them, correct?. Getting to L2 isn't terribly difficult and early promotions are still possible. I think this is a welcome change.

I'm not sure whether this should be seen as an issue or working as intended. Seeing that it can't be abused to get points, it probably won't cause problems. On the other hand it does deny the person who handled the user request the points he/she deserves for the effort.


I logged out of my app and created a new user account to test things like this. I left a UR with it and was able to close it in the editor. This R1 acccount can't close any other URs. I don't know if this is working as intended or not, but your explanation is certainly valid.

It would appear to be similar to the fact that they can't delete segments unless they are the creator, so it's probably following the same logic, can't handle URs unless they created them.

I don't necessarily see this as a huge problem, at least now when a L1 user closes a UR we'll know he was the author/reporter, before we were never really sure.

when merging 2 segments, it doesn't keep some attributes
elevation level
toll restriction

haven't seen other attributes yet, but might be possible. The elevation level already disappeared two versions ago when merging segments.

There is an open bug for this (generally about merging when parameters are different):
