Ummm, that's what I meant. Thanks for reply, I'll structure my questions a bit clearer next time.

No, they will remain frozen until the beta cycle is complete and the editor released to the public.

Thank you Alan.

I'm basing my post on what happened with the NA freeze period. Started March 2, released on March 26.

You got the answer, so adding for info: https://wiki.waze.com/wiki/Banks_of_Servers

I'm also going to add these acronyms for server farms to the glossary in the wiki, and some redirect pages.

EDIT: Done with the above. Searching "row" in the wiki takes you to the glossary entry.

no, you will not be able to save. Landmarks are switching databases/tables. The beta editor will start using the new one. When they go live with it, the system will have totally changed, so saving the data will not be possible.

FYI, the beta editor for ROW has been updated with the new Places infrastructure. At this time, however, Places are still frozen even for beta testers. This freeze for testing is expected to be lifted in a few days.

Editing Places is now available in the WME beta test environment only. It may still be 2 weeks before being released for general use.

Residence/Home is correct. Also can be used for rest and retirement homes, etc. This tweet will come out tomorrow from @WazeMapping: "Use "Residence/Home" for large multi-family apartment buildings, retirement homes/facilities. Use House Numbers for single-family dwellings."

You've not had much reason to visit it until now, but the Places wiki page has shown the pinkiness for a couple of months now. :)
