+1 on Area 51!

Best part is it's actually connected to a real road so we can all go there, planning my route now. ;)
Wow, to actually be able to vacation at Waze World!!! :lol:

I am disappointed that there isn't a Mapcat Bowtie ride there.

I needed my own sandbox. It beats putting it into the middle of a city and making people wonder about it when they're on their daily commute.

The only problem with a sandbox is that it's nearly useless for testing unless you can actually drive on it. But what you're describing is great for demonstrating things to people without interfering with live maps.

No matter where you put it, someone will see it and question it. I had one in the middle of a large lake and I got URs and eventually the attention of one of the developers.

When I created it, I didn't intend to have anyone drive on it, which is why I stuck it in the middle of a ranch somewhere in Texas. I've used it quite a bit to ask about various things. I like it out there. I may move it to more remote ranch land further south, but that's the whole purpose of me creating it. :)

Well, if any of us Wazers own a ranch, then we can use the co-ordinates to build a Forum inspired, Waze World. That way no UR. :smile:

Gizmo has a cornfield that he uses to test TTS, but I don't think there's any more room there.

No one has editing rights there. No defined land means no editing possible.

Why don't they define some land and grant everyone permission? :P
