I'd like to be able to see who solved the UR's or MP's. Any chance of this in the next release?

Thanks. Checked on Chrome and it was fine.

They are working on unfreezing it.

Clarification: Points are effectively (in the old system) landmarks that are less than 50 m that are mappable?

And note the new changes for (college/university) campus parking lots. They used to be mapped... (I don't really like that change though; these are very useful for large campuses).

Also: I'm having trouble clicking on areas and points that are inside another area. It's not clicking-through. Work around is to edit the bigger area so i can "reach" inside.

That's not a change - they were never supposed to be mapped in the first place.

[s]Oh right...didnt' know why I think they were supposed to be mapped.[/s] Canada rules.

In any case the suggested "Furniture/ Home Store" is spelt incorrectly.

It's very difficult to distinguish a segment marked for deletion but which has not yet been saved (pink dashed line) from segments with unknown direction (same color with dots). In the case of most bad base map imports, the unsaved deletion is an unknown direction (see below). Unless you save after every delete, it slows work down when editing an area that still has a number of unknown direction roads. Could they at least have different colors? The pink circle highlighting an affected node after deleting may not be enough.

Some small suggestions:

1) The term Car Service, in the US, is used to mean a type of taxi. I believe the intended ter is Automotive Services

2) Since there are so many types, and so many rules, it will be difficult to edit correctly, and even more difficult for area managers to check the work of others. Can I suggest that descriptions include the consensus guidance? Yes, that will be different for each country, but for now, since only the US and Canada have this feature, it should not be an enormous stress.

The latter applies beyond places. We really need WME to have a guidance framework. Each feature should support some sort of short guidance and links to broader guidance (e.g., ? icon that on hover shows a one-sentence guide and a MORE link to open the appropriate Wiki page in a new or frame). It could even be community-maintained.

Not sure what the purpose behind showing the OLD reports is, but if there isn't a conversation or an explanation to the fix, to me the OLD reports are just noise.

It would be nice to be able to show/hide them as an option.
