Still ... can we know when this change will happen ? Because if it will starting to work on actual client version in the next few days, yes, we can start deleting those segments right now, but if the change will be visible only starting the next version of the client, then that might take a while and no necessity to start deleting those segments.

Perhaps we ask Waze to make a very simple addition to the LiveMap problem report feature:
- new problem type called "Editor Note"
- appears in WME with a cone or note icon
- can only be closed by the reporter
- reporter name is not anonymous
- bonus: be able to post them from within WME

Maybe this could come "soon"er than asking for them to create some new notes system? ;)

Update Requests posted from the Livemap are very effective for editor comments, and are far superior to [ab]using Railroads. We use them routinely for roadworks and other non-obvious changes:

  • Has more space for text
  • Allows other editors to comment on it
  • Instance notifications of new comments, or premature deletion
  • Is highly visible within the editor, at all zoom levels
  • Will never appear in the client

Sounds good to me, as we've only ever used Railroads for Railways here.

Will you also take care of the data pollution issues with Railroads?

Well, parking lot is already rendered in the app. Which I thought was among the reasons that it wasn't desirable to completely fill out parking lots, just put in enough to fix routing issues, and boundaries near roads to suppress traffic jam generation.

I don't really think notes in the editor is gonna make a difference in when the railroad-displaying version is released. That's likely to come in 4.0, which I doubt would be delayed for any editor-specific reason. I would expect, if anything, that editor annotations has been prioritized to be released before 4.0, maybe.

What I do find curious is that Shirli was marking some bugzilla reports for future v3.8 and v3.9, but on the change to the app to enable proper display of additional road types like parking lot, railroad, etc., she wrote, "Planned. Version not scheduled yet."

That suggests a version beyond the next two releases, like perhaps 4.0.

Unless they can push new style files and the code to interpret it (there's no way, not within the App Store), I doubt it.

That it's coming in 4.0 does not surprise me at all. I am expecting a full overhaul of the client display, as we (champs) were told in that live map redesign report. This kind of thing doesn't just show up in an x.8 version, at least not on Waze—all our big interface overhauls have been x.0 versions.

Of course, that doesn't necessarily mean there'll have to be a 3.8 or 3.9, but it also doesn't mean there won't. Either way, to expect a full map display overhaul would take anything less than a significant number of months is asking too much.

Plus, I'm pretty sure the client map design is planned for a pretty major overhaul. This may be it, or part of it.
