:(

My experience is that Validator is very "heavy" -- whereas WMECH is rather "light"... that is, it seems to take considerable processing time to load Validator each time, but not WMECH.

This is significant when you're dealing with multiple update/unlock requests, etc...

And WMECH is more consistent with its highlighting at various zoom levels.
Validator is a great tool, but it is a bit quirky (not unlike Waze itself).

Toolbox also highlights these, although who knows how long Toolbox will be around....

Now I can't remember which way WMECH highlighted them, because I've been using the Toolbox+Validator highlights for it, and I think I used bgodette's WMECH fork for a time before that. Validator just shows a segment highlight, so I would always use Toolbox's highlight as well – Toolbox would draw a circle around the node itself. I'm much less likely to ignore a bright purple/yellow circle around a node when editing quickly than I am to ignore a standard Validator highlight, which could be for anything – because I know the problem ahead of time and I can fix it very quickly.

But I don't even know if this is helpful because I don't remember which way WMECH does it... :oops:

edit Oh yeah, my point is, I still think it's worth having in addition to Validator if it will show them by highlighting the node, rather than by highlighting the segment. With Toolbox in serious limbo, I think this is something WMECH could do well.

Please don't say that.

I held off on installing it because as a new editor, I wanted to avoid issues creating by having a tool that was too powerful.
Now, I am very happy to have it and its loss would be a major impediment to efficiency.

Hi Timbones,
I have just finished to debug this functionality of your script :),
I have tested it on the three servers (World, US & Canada only and Israel only)
And, it work on the domains:
- https:/www.waze.com/editor
- https:/www.waze.com/*/editor

I transmit you, the link of the source (v1.92) by private message, and you can publish it....
If you want...

A++!

I'm not sure that Validator is catching Revcons.
I had another situation this morning where I needed to convert a group of 2-way streets to 1-way, and I forgot to disable turns first. I got no Revcon notification from either Validator or WMECH.
Also, over the past four days I've run Validator scripts against the entire eastern Los Angeles and Orange County basin. I did not get a single "hit" for Revcon for probably 800 square miles of scanning.

Currently Validator v1.1.1, or all other Highlight process, don't report the Revcons and UTurns. This is due to the recent change in the storage permissions turn.
Before, they was stored with the node information. Currently, they are stored with the segments information.

Ok, I'm putting on my stupid hat now. Image :D

But what the heck is a "Revcon?" I've seen the term bandied about, but I just can't figure out the meaning (beyond a really vague idea) from seeing it used. So, I give up. :lol: What does the term mean, at least within the context of Waze?

RevCons
Basically they are unneeded turns that have been allowed on one way streets. It usually happens when a two way street is converted to a one way, or when you switch directions on a one way street.

Yup... Reverse connectivity.
"Permitted" turn onto a Non-permitted direction.
Normally not an issue for routing, though I have heard that under certain situations, Waze MAY route the wrong way down a one-way, just as it may route a prohibited left turn out of a side street if there is no other way to route to the destination.
