That's Toolbox ;)


Oh. Well, I knew it was something doing it. :lol:

As to your other points, I understand what you're saying, but I still consider the concern to be a straw man. While I'm sure there may be exceptions, anyone who's using any forum who's concerned about their privacy isn't going to be using their real name in it. That's just common sense if you're worried about that sort of thing.

As to my other point - someone who's an Area Manager already has been given a level of trust, and has been made responsible for a section of the map (just like Country Managers are responsible for their respective countries). It's not unreasonable in the least to give AMs the ability to fully monitor their area(s), any more than it would be unreasonable to give CMs tools to fully monitor their areas. This is, after all, a MAP application first and foremost. IMO, that trumps "privacy" concerns (especially given the public activity nature of the map editor). If it can be restricted to someone with a CM flag set in their profile, I would think that it could be restricted to AMs just as easily.

I understand the points that you're making. I just disagree with the premise behind them.

However, the point is moot so long as berestovskyy is unwilling to give it any consideration. ;) So I'll discontinue the probable topic clutter. For now, anyway. :mrgreen:

Thanks for the reply and the various points. You've always been very well reasoned and even-handed in your replies that I've seen here in this forum.

It would appear that Waze has decided that U-Turns and dead-end U-Turns are not going to be editable any more. 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?

Huh. Well, I just tried doing the "q" thing when clicking on the end node, and I do have JNF installed - and it didn't do anything.... :?:

I did finally get q-w combo to work, so there's that, at least.

Of course, if Waze truly doesn't want us changing those anymore, I still think it would be a good idea for Validator to no longer flag those dead-ends with "unconfirmed turns." But that's just my opinion, :-)

You know, if this thing is going to be designed with an expiration date in it, it would be nice if the new version was released before it expires.... :-)

I tried doing an "update extensions" in Chrome, but no new version was installed.

So, can we have the new version, please? :D

That's not really a good solution, though yea it works. Suspect it's an unacceptable work-around for people who have things going on their computers that require them to have accurate time/date information on their systems.

Thanks for that, though I don't know if you can edit the native Chrome script that's been installed in that fashion. Does anyone know if the userscripts version works in Chrome under Tampermonkey?

What I'd really like to know is why on Earth this thing needs an expire date, of all things? I really don't see what useful purpose it serves....

Edit: Well, I went ahead and gave it a try. So far, it seems to function just fine in Chrome as a userscript being handled by Tampermonkey. Which means I could put in the modification suggested, and now it seems to be running again. Yay! :)

I just fired up WME and got an update announcement for the Validator. Looks like he finally pushed out an update. :)

It would be nice if this update did not have an artificial, unneccessary expiration date in it.... :?

Since the userscripts version does seem to work under Tampermonkey in Chrome, I'm just going to keep using that so that if it does have another expire date, it will be easy to disable next time.

Seriously.

Toolbox will pop up a message when you start it if there's a newer version available and the auto-update feature in the browser hasn't auto-updated it yet, letting you know that it's time to update. You can click on ok and happily continue to work with it, but it doesn't stop working just because there's a newer version.

If similar code could be added to Validator so that when the "expiration" date has passed and there actually isn't a new version online yet, at least that way people could continue working until the new version is available online to provide that update.

Just a thought.... :)

I appreciate having it, too. I don't see that above field (Updated by) when I bring up the search tab.

Is it restricted to CMs & RCs?
