Just a clarification in adding city names. I used to set with the district or neighborhood name and the city i.e:

Thuqbah, Al Khobar
Madinat Al Umal, Al Khobar

This is per the green street signboard on the street corner

Shall I continue on this or just the arabic الخبر at the city field?

All CM's please clarify as majority of my earlier addition it has the district or neighborhood name + city in english.

You should use the Arabic city name only. Most of the neighborhoods are actually removed from the map, for now. Untill a future support for neighborhoods become available, you should not use the neighborhood name.

It is already pointed out on another topic that only Arabic city name is allowed.

There are thousands of new Map Problems around Saudi Arabia these days. I'm self raiding Riyadh, but surly a formal Map Raid is needed to start solving them as fast as possible. MapSir already announced the possibility to start a Map Raid in Saudi Arabia, but no Champs are available here It may be possible that I'm the only active Level 4 editor in Saudi Arabia. Can country managers start a Map Raid? How do I become a Local Champ to start promoting for one? :?

Still waiting for some news about the MapRaid.

I was able to drive to Al Hair only to find there isn't a single segment added to the map, so I gave my self the duty to self-raid and mapped the entire town (PM) Although there are still some missing areas un-mapped. I really enjoyed self-raiding, I can't imagine how a real MapRaid would feel :mrgreen:

Looking forward to it

Dear AlObaili,

City field is for City Name, Neighborhood names are not included in City field, as this changes City as complete unit. This can be a community rule, that can be implemented by community members on each country in different ways.

There are several discutions of this from several communities, and you can check also the US Wiki for general linements (Chosen because it is quite complete and in english).

As this issue is community based decision, I would leave it like it is now, until you have more community members to make a country agreement on this issue.

There are much more important functional issues on the map than just naming neighboors.

I would suggest you use some scripts to find errors in the map to make pore productive the time you work in WME. These scripts are developed by the editor´s community and can be of big help.

If you are interested, you can start with "Validator". It will track functionality errors on the map and "light them up" for you. No more segment by segment searching, just quickly resolve the issues.

If you want to know more about scripts, you can visit the Wiki script´s page to learn more and find other useful scripts. There are many forum pages explaining how to use and get the best of all scripts. Some of them have been gathered together as in Toolbox. Both of this tools are a must have for quick and good editting.

Best regrds from Concepción, Chile,


Thank you for this kind and complete reply.

I can see the majority here want to focus on fixing map problems. I am up for that!

But what about those mistakes in naming cities. A lot of the streets have a neighborhood in their city name. Mappers who have done this made a major mistake that is very hard to fix. Just take a look at Riyadh or Al Khobar with the city layer enabled.

This surly need to be fixed by the waze team. Can they kindly give us a hand with this Raid? All cities with neighborhood names in them need to be deleted and replaced with one Arabic city name. This need to be done sooner or later, so why not in the raid? Can we somehow escalate the the issue to them?

Or is it something that need to be done aside from this MapRaid?

Thanks!

Before we start. I have a small question,

Is it okay to add names in the City name field?

I saw every single neighborhood in Riyadh added as a separate city in the city name field with the form "Neighborhood Name, City Name"

I'm not sure if this is right. :roll:

I'm setting up some ground rules for names and addresses and this question came into my mind.
