When logged out of Waze with URComments enabled in Tampermonkey, the Waze Map Editor practice mode will not function properly. The 'welcome/login' window will not dismiss and allow the user to use practice mode.
Thanks i made some changes today that should fix this, but with URC disabled i still get an error when clicking pratice mode. clicking pratice mode twice will take you to practice mode correctly with or without URC enabled.

I am going to guess that you are not in the US?

I just posted another version, where i changed the way i build the URL background data URL. I used to have a big if else statement that was missing beta's IL and world server. it is now one line that should now work on all servers production and beta.

version 1.5.3

Don't forget to save any personalized parts first and insert them back again.
Thanks,

for the custom comments there was a request that the url for the instructions could be customizable. Also the support url in the comment 'App Bug' was no longer valid.

for the main script I made the changed it to use the new url array, changed the way the background data url is built and changed the 'App Bug' url, and made the instruction url open in a new tab.

If anyone is having problems with the diff that crazycaveman posted make sure you don't copy the + symbols at the beginning of each line. The next easiest way would be to reinstall the custom comments file and then paste in your comments.

all of the language files have been updated.

you should see the pill counts update immediately after sending a comment and when sending a comment it should appear in the conversation area of the UR?
or I don't see or hit the send button anyway and end up sending the reminder twice because it doesn't look like it got sent.
the auto reminders will only be sent to UR where the initial comment is from you, where the comment count is 1, where the days past the initial comment are equal or greater than the number of days in your settings, and if the UR is on screen.
using UR-MP-tracking to find and add the '4 day reminder', URComments adds the reminder fine, but it shows the pre-auto-send view of the UR as if the comment had not already been sent.
this is not how i would recommend sending reminders. i would set URO+ to backfill UR, set URC to auto send reminders, and then zoom all the way out and URC finish. After URC is done sending reminders i would click on rescan in UR-MP.

also i am not understanding what you mean by "pre-auto-send view of the UR" does this mean UR-MP is not showing that the UR was updated or that the waze does not show the comment or URC's pills and filters are not showing the update?

The amber bar(s) showing auto-reminders show briefly, but the UR window does not change from what one sees when any message is auto added but not yet sent.
The pill count does not change until I close the UR window. Sometimes I must do a Shift-alt-R to get the count to update.
....

yes
or that the waze does not show the comment
the comment shows as if it has just been added to the box but not yet sent.
or URC's pills and filters are not showing the update?
yes.

The short of it is that you are using two scripts that were not designed to work together the way you are attempting to use them.

i will quote / update what i said a few messages ago..
this is not how i would recommend sending reminders. i would set URO+ to backfill URs for your area, set URC to auto send reminders, and then zoom all the way out and let URC finish sending reminders. After URC is done sending reminders i would click on rescan in UR-MP.
After sending reminders this way there is no reason to use UR-MP for sending reminders. as for the view not updating, the message is sent in the background when the UR is on screen, if you open the UR before the message is sent waze will not reload the UR data. There is no way i am going to attempt to try to update UR-MP's data / list. If you insist on doing things the way you described, disable the auto send reminder and all your problems will be solved!

whatnt wrote:Close days - Is that the number of days after the report was initially submitted? Or days after your last reply? Example:

Report date: Jan 7, 2015

Reminder days: 4
Close days: 7

A reminder will be given on Jan 11. Will the close date be Jan 14 or 18?
both the reminder and the close days are based off the date of the last comment from an editor.

v1.5.6
I posted a new version of the main script mainly so the Malaysia would be included.

Please be warned that i changed the way the filters are working. This is in an attempt to filter others URs and have the stale ones come through, but hopefully now we can hide the ones that have replies that are not to you.

also added the ability to add keyboard shortcuts to each comment in the list using the keyboard manager. I have heard mixed results about the kb shortcuts working as intended...

if you notice anything off please let me know.
thanks

If I'm auto-commenting on someone else's contact, I'd love for it to add 'Another editor here' to the top, but not to my own.
I'd also like to add the 'respond in app' and 'open to any' on the bottom of first-contact messages, while still preserving the boilerplate links.

The necessary variables are already in place, no?
since you name is sent with your comment people can figure out you are another editor..
last i checked not everyone gets alerted in the app, email, etc...
as for 'open to any' i will only every support text that is relevant to the wazers and not other editors!
