[DONE]Expected changes in editing permissions

Post by shirlig
Hi Wazers,
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.
Thanks,
Shirli

After level 2, there is always a need from local champs and staff to promote the user upgrade.
This is to monitor user progress and editing quality. What I am not so sure is if with the increase in the points amount, the progress will be back to automatic.

Shirli, please let the corresponding message(s) in WME be changed as well. ATM our lower level editors still do see 4 miles radius being mentioned.
[edit] And the sizes of EA areas should be correctly calculated as well :)
[edit] My apology, I was just told that the areas are already correct and reflect the change.
