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

I'm not thrilled at seeing my own recently closed URs and MPs cluttering the view, but it would be helpful to see what other editors have been closing recently. It irks me when I get a message that a UR for which I was awaiting a response or even actively working with a reporter on is closed by a random editor. In that regard, it's actually nice to still be able to hold a conversation with the anonymous reporter via WME. Even if a report has no conversation going though, it's nice to see if an editor is closing a bunch of reports just for points.

1) I see no URs or MPs in the Balt/Wash area now.
2) When I select a road now, I do not see any turn arrows.

I've cleared my cache as mentioned in a previous reply here, and still nothing

Please see the Places wiki page for how each category should be mapped.

Points are layered on top of Areas, but Area layer is not so easy. I am not sure if it is possible to make "completely overlapped" Areas always pop on top of the larger, but that's a good idea.

That is a great idea.

Im sure an update to URO+ will do this, but it would be nice to select the option via the map layers.

"Automotive Services" seems reasonable.

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.

We've never had much luck getting Waze to implement messages within the editor, like something that pops up the first time someone uses a feature, or something pops up on the next 5 logins or something like that. We've been asking for it for years.

There is an idea which was proposed to the staff weeks ago in a meetup. When it comes to country manager's management, we tend to forget the UR's where we have written a message, specially if we have to edit in different cities/countries. So, Ohad, what are the odds of adding a tab on the left panel menu so we can keep a track of UR's where a message was written? it could notify us when someone replied, that way we can fix the problem way faster. It would be something like an UR Syndication ;)

This was requested as an option late in the beta cycle. Visible closed URs were added to the beta on Monday, two days before production release. We didn't have much time to provide feedback.
