In the next few days (hopefully less than two weeks) we are going to deploy the following changes in editing permissions:
- Level 3 is a significant level that allows editing high risk segments and therefore requires extensive knowledge of map editing and a lot of experience. Currently, this level can be reached too fast. To avoid innocent mistakes on important segments, the number of edits required for level 3 will change from 10k edits to 25k edits.
- Level 3 editors - permission radius around driven area will change from 4 miles to 3 miles
[Comment]In the future we plan to support different radius permission parameters for different countries but until this is supported - we chose numbers that are reasonable on a global scale.
EDIT (APR 22) -
clarification - users who reached level 3 before the change is implemented will not be demoted.
