This is being looked into by management. Right now, the TOS/Privacy Policy doesn't allow it. It may be as easy as modifying that, but we're not sure.


I don't care to know who the person is but I would LOVE to be able to simply send them a message, as in Cartouche.

Right there with ya! The email contains your username and a link to the forum, so if they are motivated, they can contact you.[/quote]

Yeah, that is nice. I actually had a friend at work thank me because he received one of those emails after I fixed a problem he reported. :)

Hello

Since the new update I'm experiencing some problems when I want to edit. When zoomed in, I select a street that I want to edit. Unfortunately the left editor area doesn't say "one segment selected" (including all editable information) like it should be. It keeps saying "hello stijnley, you are level 1 editor......."

When I zoom out and select the same street, I can edit a few minutes after zooming back in. But the problem keeps coming back when selecting a nearby street.

Can someone help me out?

Thank you!

Hoping this isn't just me, but I've just found that (amusingly) the AM layer shows me watermarked in my area but the cones/editor-level have now demoted me to Level 3 from a Level 4. Here's some before and after screenshots:

I read the first post. Are you referring to this:

old rank 0 = 1 cone
old rank1 = 2 cones (currently not in use)
old rank 2 = 3 cones
old rank 3 = 4 cones
old rank 4 = 5 cones
old rank 5 = 6 cones (currently not in use)
old rank 6 = STAFF


I don't understand how my old rank (being 4) is showing 3 cones and not 5 then.

Okay, got it. This Editing Ranks page needs an update from somebody perhaps.

Am I the only one not seeing any Update Requests in my area (and after scrolling around a bit, any at all)? Yes, the UR layer is on (and I've tried toggling it on/off as well as giving it a bit of lag time, just for good measure).

There's a script that will highlight unterminated roads when not selected (see sig) (AMs only)

So it seems. Does this mean that landmarks will become searchable items?
