Discussion for the unofficial, community-developed addons, extensions and scripts built for the Waze Map Editor.

The official index of these tools is the Community Plugins, Extensions and Tools wiki page.

I just tried this tool for the first time, looks promising! ;)

However, the "clear report and segment cache" button does not seem to work for me. I run an analysis and then want to get rid of the flashing segments. So I click this button and the flashing segments go away. But, as soon as I pan the map, they reappear instantly. Am I doing something wrong?

I am running validator 0.4.3 on Chrome 31.0.1650 via Tampermonkey.

Ah, I see. So the only way to mute the Validator without disabling the script is to uncheck the "Highlight issues on the map" in the options?

If so, I would suggest to move that checkbox to the front page of the Validator. In basemap areas the flashing segments can be quite annoying. ;)

Wow, I love the way I can now easily switch the Validator on and off. Well done, berestovskyy!

- new advanced setting: 'WME: Two-Way segments by default'
Wow, it's actually a shame that this has to be implemented as a script extension into WME, but I LOVE this feature! It has been annoying since the start that new segments default as oneways.

EDIT: But, roundabouts are now also created as twoways by default, which should of course not be the case!

Ich would like to oppose this one. In Germany, we frequently KISS ramps, if the two driveways are merely separated by road markings (example). Getting all those marked would lead to - well - challenges. ;)

Sorry to see that, I really liked this feature!

I never left-click the permalink button, but just copy the link instead (right click permalink, then select copy link). Following this procedure, the LayerSwitcher entry was perfect. Any chance to get it back (maybe optionally)?

If this one-way Ramp has a turn enabled to another one-way Ramp. Here is an example: permalink

Sorry, maybe the condition is not sufficient for US, so please let me know if I shall disable the check for US or add more ifs.
This condition brings many false positives in Germany, too. Since editors in other countries seem to have the same problem, might I suggest to only activate this condition in countries who explicitly ask for it?

Please also note, at the moment Validator shows Waze wiki and Waze forum links only.
We don't use the Waze Wiki in Italy, can you just leave it "linkless"?

There is a check #52 "More than N letters street name" which may be adjusted and activated for IT.
Yes, please. A warning just for ramps and N = 55.

I think that the " Street name on two-way Ramp" should be removed/declassified/better explained. Sometimes it is necessary to give a name to a ramp to avoid the "detour avoiding" mechanism.
Example: This 2 segments must have the name SS16 (https://www.waze.com/editor/?env=row&lo ... ,178050565)
In order for this route to be computed properly: https://www.waze.com/livemap?lon=13.514 ... n=13.51457
(Otherwise Waze sends you to the roundabout ahead for a U turn).

Ferries are considered as non drivable segment and generate a warning when connected to streets:
#115 The non-drivable segment makes a junction with a drivable at node B
https://www.waze.com/editor/?env=row&lo ... =309117864

Moreover I personally don't fully agree with this check in general, as it is not an issue anymore.
