From what I've seen, its Tampermonkey incarnation seems to activate on any website and every Iframe I've come across, making Tampermonkey list up to 9 active instances of your script on some websites.

I designed it for Stylish extension. Yes, userstyles.org provide some script for Tempermonkey, but as you say, its buggy.

Challange Accepted ;)
Userstyle.org provide some nice tool for configuring style before installation, so now user can chose between this small flashing indicator from screenshot above and flashing speech baloon. Diffrent for visible and invisible mode.
A whole button is now on TODO list because it need a little more work.

I'd really love to have the regions be smaller than nations. The US is a very large country, and it'd be better if we could be chatting with people who are geographically closer, particularly since we can't work on edits outside of our editable areas, which tend to be MUCH smaller than the nation.

I use the Tampermonkey version, and for me it works like a charm.


Yes, it does, but it should be limited to the Waze Map Editor only.

BTW, is this a general Userstyles->Tampermonkey conversion issue?

Nice little gadget, but you might want to limit it to WME only ;)

Would be better, I think to have the complete button flashing.

They already have chat rooms and private messages, we could also access it without needing to have the editor open. IRC also logs channels so we could answer questions at a later time.


I'm aware of that... You do that not only with IRC but, Yahoo, Google hangout, MSN chat and the list goes on... But, that's not the solution at all.
We are talking about the Waze's new chat implementation within WME. While in WME, we can use chat to point out things, answer question and work together with another editor on an issue.
- The goal is to have the chat out of the way to preserve the most screen space as possible.
- Move it to the left or/and make it so that editors can resize, reposition it.
- Another option is to have a transparent background.
- Even though, Waze picks rooms based on location, there are too many in a room that conversations gets each others way. Ability to pick a room and work one on one or just with handful editors would be great.

Bottom line is, there are a lot room to improve. It should only get better. I think, this is one of Waze's best feature to date.
