Except that it's not. It's a side effect of eventual consistency and has nothing to do with anything but WME's backend's current propagation delay at the time you save modification(s) to a segment(s).

Normally this is masked by JNF's issuing a second reload after a successful save, but sometimes you might get data served from a different server that isn't yet consistent.

Um actually about that... While there usually isn't enough information available directly in WME to determine where someone lives, it does provide a really large side-channel.

Half a residential block close enough? Because that's how close info in WME can usually get you.

It's been a known issue for four years and unofficially discussed at each NA meet. It's not really something that can be solved either without hamstringing the community's ability to police the map under the current system of edits with no approval. It's not particularly high-priority issue either since editing is voluntary and a public activity.

So no concerns about someone sitting around to see who gets into a car with a phone mount?

Heck, someone can do that now, completely unrelated to Waze. ;)
Well yeah, but that's looking for just anyone, not a specific someone.

Hi berestovskyy, please take a look of this situation concerning "Rule #74: The drivable roundabout node A has more than one segment connected". The script reports roundabout nodes with multiple connections, but I don't think there is another way to do this. Or there it is? Thanks.

Hamburger roundabouts are a special case. I believe there's a good discussion about them in the UK forums. IIRC one solution is to have the "meat" connect to the segments outside of the RB if turns from inside onto the RB aren't allowed.

This does seem an excellent time to thank the author for this wonderful script.
I started with Waze In January and did a few hundred edits...laboriously hunting around my area for errors.

And then I discovered this script. It's an evening like this that makes you realize how important it is.

If the reason for the expiration is to motivate berestovskyy to work on the script, couldn't that also be accomplished with a pop-up when running the script after the hard-wired date...
Something like "Send a PM to berestovskyy and remind him the WME Validator script is 2 months old".

That way this very valuable script would continue to work and the author would get the reminder he wants.

First, let me say this is an incredibly useful tool.

Second...

Is there a reason there isn't a check for "one-way street with dead-end"? I can't think how this ever wouldn't indicate a problem of some sort. A friend believes this check used to be be present but doesn't know why it would have been removed.
