This actually started happening before the new release:

User Request: Drive incomplete, off the mark or appears as single green dot on map

Makin' it even harder to Sherlock Holmes these User Reports, and it's not like I can ask
the user to clarify.

I'm either going to mark all those solved or quit doing them at all. If I can't provide the explanation
as to why I'm closing their report out without solving it, I don't feel right about rejecting it. 9 times
out of 10 there is an explanation.

While I was testing it just now, simply turning off the landmark layer didn't fix it for me. But once I turned off the Landmark layer and did a permalink, I couldn't get it to happen again.

Is that not the case for you?


Worked for me. Saving was still slow and there was some lag here and there, but no-more having to refresh all the time, thank goodness!

Re: Too little error checking on cities

See viewtopic.php?p=293748#p293748 (the problem) and viewtopic.php?p=295180#p295180 (possible solutions) for more on this.


We have 3 two letter city names (Aa, Ao, Oe) and 75 three letter names (54 unique) in Estonia. If you enable this check then make it clear how to add new cities or make it possible to create new cities for some editors based on their rank or whatever.

Maybe already mentioned in the numerous posts above, too many to read, but incase it's not, the new editor does not work in Firefox. :(
