There are that many ponds, ditches and trees mapped in WME? That seems a bit overboard IMO.


IMO unless it is a major landmark or somehow has a meaningful impact on navigation or situational awareness, and especially considering they aren't named and thus can't be found as a destination, that stuff shouldn't be mapped in the first place, just adds server/client/rendering load and brings no value. I like how Magic highlights these random unhelpful features without names. Click click click. Goodbye, unnamed thing.

First, I do not agree with this mindset. Plenty of unnamed or un-usefully-named bodies of water which are helpful to map for situational awareness. We have a number of drainage canals that run in medians in my area which have names like "Canal no. 3" which are not signed, not useful, and not known to the general public. Nevertheless, the map looks empty without them.

And please note that policies for mapping natural features are not the same around the world. Many areas in Europe have very visually rich maps which include, for example, forested areas — and, if I'm being honest, I wish we did more of this in the States.

Can we get it so the Narrow road (US-English) or Alley (English) is a red You Must Fix This highlight?

USA has determined not to use this road type and for the new editor, they don't know so this would make it easier to find.

Suggestion was brought up in the SM Channel and received concurrence would be a good suggestion so posting it here.

you can deactivate the ones you think are unnecessary, each country has a moderator for the Magic, talk to the Local Champs of your country, successes
