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.

If you're having trouble finding where to enter this, go to the Validator Settings (gear icon) and enter it in the appropriate boxes (first two) in the pane (labeled Custom template and Custom RegExp). It's not dependent on rank. See the Custom Checks examples for more info.

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.

This could be checked for with the following RegExp (should work, but untested; maybe someone can correct me if I'm wrong?):
Custom template: ${street}
Custom RegExp: /^St .*/i

Today I disabled all of the other scripts and turned Validator back on and noticed that it is reporting problems but only a tiny amount of segments with problems are being highlighted. I've completely disabled all other scripts, turned Validator on and off, uninstalled it, restarted the browser, reinstalled it, restarted again, but still having the same problem.

Attached is a screenshot showing that Validator is on, that I'm in my editing area, a list of problems for the selected segment, but no highlighting. Highlighting issues is turned on in the settings.

Any suggestions?

Edit: Forgot some words.

Have you tried going into Validator settings and selecting "Restore Defaults"? It might be that you set it to only show certain errors (under the search icon's tab, labeled "Reported as")

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.

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.

It would be nice if it could be expanded to the SMs to help them keep track of wayward editors, but then again, I'm sure it wouldn't be too hard to get the RC or a CM to run a report for us and share the results, if needed. Remember, too, that you can use Colour Highlights to highlight segments that a user has last edited; a little more tedious as you have to be zoomed in more and move manually, but still useful.

With the week's changes, my first custom highlight is now nul elevation (and when I clear it, it comes back on next reload)
That's fine, I can live with it... but it seems that for the most part, I only see it after I've edited a segment... such as after deleting a connected segment or unneeded junction node.
For the unneeded junction node I would expect the purple highlight to take precedence, but I'm seeing others that were not highlighted before a save and pop up green after saving.
In one case, after a save, a street two segments removed from any editing popped up nul.

At first I thought I still had highlighter set to display recent edits, but confirmed that it was not set.

They are legitimately nul elevation, but I have not yet been able to confirm whether or not they were nul before the edit-save operation.

There is a known issue in WME itself where edited segments will not show an elevation as set, but if you wait a second or two and refresh the roads, it will fix itself. Add for custom highlighting, that always takes precedence over other highlights

JNF makes cameras visible at zoom 0, if you have that installed

Would it be possible to add a check for service roads in the USA? They have been deprecated and aren't to be used. Having them be highlighted (even if it's just as a note) would make it easier to remove them.

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

The problem is some service roads that have been added in my area should be sweet as private roads and not street. I'd prefer to find them and set the correctly before Waze changes all of them to street and starts trying to route on them. By my reckoning, it should be easy to add, but I wholly agree that those other checks are more needed and should be fixed first.

Feature request:

Allow custom color settings for custom checks in a localization pack. For some checks, it would be nice to have a different color than the standard yellow/gold.
