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!
Stisj

I'm glad I'm not the only one who has problems with selecting road segments on the WME. The only way to "fix" it is to deselect the road segment, zoom all of the out, and zoom all of the way back in to the section you're editing and hope the segment can be changed when you select it again.

Also, I thought it was a conflict with WME Color Highlights script but it's definitely the server causing these issues.

I use Firefox and Chrome and the editor seems more picky on Firefox than Chrome when choosing road segments.

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)
