I think that's pretty decent. In general a bit detailed for the majority of editors, but I think a fine start to discuss. Should be posted in the wiki discussion forum because it will become part of the wiki.

Another mess again, nothing will be done with this to prevent segment speeds of paralel roads. Useless.

Just informed about this thread...

I plan to write for wiki publication a section on how to draw and name railroads, subject to review. I've been a proponent for railroads being returned to the client and am quite pleased with the announcement.

Before Waze took over my life, I was (and still am) a pro-amateur railroad photographer/videographer and have been since 1972. I ran a sole-proprietorship railroad video business for a few years, but taxes and government regulations stole my joy.

The scope will be for a North American audience because that is what I know. I hope to have something for review in a couple of weeks and will announce here, in this thread, when the draft is ready.

The discussion was occurring concurrently in both threads. I posted in both so as not to exclude anyone based on their forum permissions. I'm fine if it is consolidated to somewhere that all can access...with the most likely place being a Wiki page.

I'm not an expert on setting up a Wiki page and have no objection if someone who does wants to do that.

As per Shirlig's first message in this thread, railroads used as notes are to be deleted (by us).

I've added hundreds, if not thousands of miles of railroads (not notes, but actual railroads), so trust we will not be asking railroad segments be deleted in preparation for their eventual return to the client.

Long story, short: We do not know when.

Not ideal long term, but will do until Waze provide a dedicated notes interface.


Can you tell me how URs can be posted from the Livemap? Thanks.

On the live map, click on a spot. You get the balloon with Start point, destination, and report a problem. With the report a problem, click on it and you get a way to drop a UR to the update map.

Thanks for releasing that, Shirli...

It's hard to argue common practice when the reason for the change is still classified. Now that this little background info is public, it's much easier to invoke changes :mrgreen:

Basically you can "store" all you identified in a permalink and kill it with just one click...;)
