Is it restricted to CMs & RCs?

It is restricted to CMs, as stated in the FAQ

New! Search for a specific username
Validator does support a search for a specific username. Click "search" tab and put a desired username(s) into the "Updated by" field.

For privacy reasons the feature is available for country managers only. Regular users and area managers have "Include only your edits" option instead.

Ok, thanks. I wonder if he can be persuaded to add State Managers, at least within the states they manage....

I doubt it. I suspect that he's using a "CM" flag that is applied to a user's record by the Waze system.

To expand it to anyone else would have to be to "AM" or everyone... unless he did a username-by-username validation.

Oh, maybe I misunderstood then. I thought that I had read somewhere that Waze actually created an official State Manager designation in the system. You're right, if all they did was just make us AMs with an area the size and shape of our states, then he'd have no way to tell the difference.

Thanks for the quick fix on those! I trust those checks will be re-enabled at some point? :-)

How do you set URO+ to adjust how far out cameras show up? I can't seem to find a setting for that...

You can achieve that with the following custom check:

Custom template: ${typeRank}
Custom regexp: 9

Yeah, I've been using that. I was just thinking that, since this is a country-wide guideline, it would help more people be aware not to use that road type. Also, it would free up one of my custom checks :D

+1

I understand what you're saying there, but - given that Validator's purpose is to highlight things which need attention, and given that "service road" is a type that they want us to avoid using in the US, wouldn't it make more sense to add it as a check within Validator?

Yea, "soon." How long now have they been saying that they were going to get rid of the service road type as a selection? ;)

That they're going to do this change "soon" is no reason to not have Validator look for it and help us find those types of road now, while it is still something we have to deal with. The check can always be removed later once Waze has removed it and changed all of the roads so that "service road" is no longer on the map.

Service roads may well be streets or parking lot roads, depending on usage.

[ img ] Exactly.

When (if?) the type disappears, it is likely the will all become one other type... And I'm going to bet it would be "street" as that is how service roads are routed now.

Right, and with highlighting, we can find them and set them as they should be, before the mass-change-to-whatever (likely "street") happens.

Like another who posted in this thread, I'm also using a custom check to find them. And I agree; it would be nice to free that slot up since we only get two of them and this really should be something that Validator just checks for among the other things it checks for.

If there's something more urgent that's broken, then yea by all means fix those broken items, but adding this check should also happen.

They should route like parking lot roads, but they route like streets.

Which is a problem. So, Mikenit, no, the "response" is decidedly not nothing.

Plus, we've been explicitly told to not use the service road type, so we should be looking for them and setting them as an appropriate type. Having them highlighted, even as just a note type, by the Validator would help us a lot towards that end.

With the new version of WME, when using the "roads experimental" layer, PLRs now seem to vanish because they're small and thin, and a color that compliments the color of the asphalt road in the satellite imagery quite nicely. :shock: ;)

Hopefully, they'll change those things, but in the meantime, I'd like a way to make them stand out better when I'm working on the map. Does anyone know what regexp value needs to be used with ${typeRank} to select a parking lot road type? 'Cause I can't seem to find it. :-)
