If it would be available for CM's only, then it could be a very nice tool ;-)

I thought this is available in another script available for CMs? If not mistaken it's Toolbox where CMs can fix revcons or no end nodes at one click.

I'm *very* interested in an abbreviation script... though I don't think I want it to be applied universally. The process it should follow is:
1. select street segment
2. activate script:
2a. select entire street
2b. update street name with appropriate abbreviations

I'm very much against a "do stuff, then pan, then do it again" sort of script -- if it was that universal of a change, it should probably be done by Waze on the database backend.

Oops. After re-read the 1st post using my laptop, now I get it that the concept is different from Toolbox. I was using my S3 to read the post and interpret it differently. My apologies. :oops:

Sure, there are scripts like Toolbox or JNF which fix nodes/turns/etc etc. Those scripts are quite mature and already tested by many editors. There is no reason to implement the same functionality once again, so this WMET script can just initiate some of the JNF functions, but in large scales, i.e. for a whole city.

Well, here are just a couple of examples when it is safe IMO to alter street name:
1. "St.X" -> "St.[space]X" or vice versa.
2. "P" -> "[P]"
3. "A4 (E40)" -> "A4 - E40" or vice versa.
4. "st." -> "St." (case)
etc etc

Also we can safely abbreviate (or expand the abbreviation) with thoroughly defined rules, like:
if the length of the street name is > 15, abbreviate "Saint" to "St."

Most of those rules will be country-specific (i.e. will work only in certain countries) and will be agreed with country managers.

You might be right. But on the other hand we could get it done in few minutes rather than days. And it's my main concern to make the script safe.

Actually I came up with the idea after I asked few times to unlock a road. The road was unlocked but some of the segments were still locked. So I asked to unlock them too. And then a nearby road... So I thought why can't we just have a script to lock/unlock roads in an area...

So I guess I'll start with this mass lock/unlock functionality and we'll see how it goes ;)

This mass lock/unlock is for CMs only?

Be carefull with mass-editing scripts available to all users. Even if you add a filtee based on user level in javascript, it's easy to reverse-engineer the code. In the Toolbox script, code is generated live, so dangerous code is not even viewable to unexperimented users.

Agreed. But to simplify things now I'm leaning towards closed distribution scheme...

Hi!
The v0.2 is ready.
At the moment this script is not available for download.

To test the script just over the current map view, please use "1 (run once)" button.
