You can use a custom check in Validator for that:
template: ${typeRank}:${elevation}
regexp: /^5:(?!-5)/


By chance is this one of those features linked to editor rank? I've looked about my system and haven't been able to find a way to do this.

berestovskyy wrote:But in fact at the moment Validator does the opposite. In some countries it highlights walking trails with elevation -5 (check #105).


For the first time I ran across a road that needed to be added, where I had to worry about elevation. Long story short, I double checked the wiki. Aside from the link I believe was previously referenced, https://wiki.waze.com/wiki/Road_types/U ... .2FTaxiway (and yes, that is US specific) I also found: https://wiki.waze.com/wiki/Elevation#Road_elevation

The reason I mention it here is because (I believe) the effort is to get this wonderful extension to match the Wiki. I have no clue how the ROW uses elevation, but since this might be relavent, I thought I'd point it out in an attempt to be helpful. Hopefully I succeeded. :) If I didn't, please accept my apologies.

Saint versus Street

Postby krikketdoug » Sun Jun 22, 2014 11:42 pm

An idea for another invalid street name check, that might be workable...

I was out on a drive and I heard a couple of times at different streets, "Turn right on Street Charles Road". Kind of obvious what the problem was when I thought about it. St. is the abbreviation for Saint and Street.

Given that Street would only be used at the end of the street name, but Saint would be used after the directional (if any) and before the name, could Validator look for St in this context?

Just a thought.

Then let me give an answer that fixes the problem.

https://wiki.waze.com/wiki/Junction_Style_Guide#Loops (Edited to add the following: Look under Loop Save Errors)

Fortunately for me Junction Node Fixer (JNF) still works, so it simplifies this process a lot. Click on the double-node, hit q, and the new node appears. Add one more node, and the problem goes away. By hitting q, yes, you get about 15 edits. Look at the guide for the reason why.

Hope this helps!

Personally, I think that's a bad idea at intersections, since how can you indicate where a U-Turn is actually legal to perform for the routing engine? But that's another topic.

Since that seems to now be the case, is there any chance that Validator can be updated to no longer highlight roads with "Unconfirmed turn at node {A|B}" when node {A|B} is a dead end?


I just tested this. You can still make it a hard no u-turn by clicking on the end node and typing "q". This works while running JNF and without JNF installed. (I just tested both cases.) So you just need a keyboard to edit them.

I don't know. I'm running a non-standard system (Mageia Linux, Chrome (not native to Mageia), plus the plug-ins.) Try it after telling Chrome to disable the extension and reload the page? Maybe instead of a q-w for a junction, use a w-q?

Just random thoughts... [Edited to add the comment that if something doesn't work, you can always undo it!]

For what it's worth, I keep Toolbox turned off almost always because I've found (and had it confirmed on the forums) that it interacts badly with URO+ after a bit of time. If I need it for a specific function, I'll turn it on, and then shut it off again.

So the use of exensions may also play a part...

It definitely gets my vote for its own tab. The Me tab was fine in previous WME releases, as there was nothing else on it.
In its current state, it clutters the screen and introduces double scroll bars for tab content that can fit on one screen.

I already have tabs expanding on to a second line, and that is far less distracting than anything pushing all other tab lines halfway down the screen.
If it is contained in its own tab, it should be fairly future proof and not break as easy when WME devs decide to remove or rename an existing tab again.

Hawaiian city and street names use diacritical marks that are flagged in Validator, specifically the apostrophe. We get UR's that request that we match the signage. I haven't found any guidelines in this matter, so I add the mark. Is there a way to switch off the check for this in Validator?

Hawaii State Managers are in discussion as to using complete diacritical marks for all names. There is quite a movement here for making all things PC.

I've installed crazycaveman's Hawaii localization and it's flagging "Loop", that it should be "LOOP". I can't find Wiki confirmation for that. Is there one? And if not, how do I edit localization to reflect?
