Stop Vandalism/clueless editing ASAP

Postby timl2k12 » Wed Apr 17, 2013 2:24 am

What is the quickest way to stop a vandal or clueless editor from continuing to screw up the map? He has been PM'd and refuses to admit he is doing anything wrong. Diplomacy has failed.

PM me the details and ill contact the editor. If I don't get a good response, I can have editing rights revoked.

I have an editor in my area who is busy adding roads but instead of leaving the names off because he doesn't know them, he marks them as 'no city, no street'. Is this a real problem and if so what is my best approach?

You can't just leave names off, you have to mark no street. City at the latest the editor could have put in, if it is in a city.
I'm not against that approach, it's better to have it mapped then no map at all. Street names can be filled in later.

Thanks for the feedback. I was having an issue just because I feel personally that the rods should be left unmarked so they appear red in WME. That way it's easy to spot un-named roads. Marking roads that do have names as 'no street' makes them appear white (and normal) in WME, making it harder to spot the incomplete info

But as nnote stated, you cannot leave a street name blank. If you do not enter a street name, you must mark it as 'No Street', else you cannot save it.

If you use the keyboard shortcut shift+D, unnamed roads will appear in red. Then you can then find them and name them. :D

That was what I said, "he marks them as 'no city, no street' "...

Since nobody else has really addressed this part of the question, I will. No we do not leave roads showing as red in the editor because we don't know the name. Such red roads do not show in the app and are thus effectively not there for routing and navigation. It is far better to have unnamed roads/incomplete info that waze can still route you onto, than it is to have maps full of unfinished roads that don't show in the app because they have incomplete data.

Yes ideally we name every street, but often such info is not readily available, and it's far better to map in a new street seen in updated aerial images with no name then it is to leave it off because we don't know the name.
