I'm sure it was a mistake. Sometimes I forget which threads are in which forums. I do not appreciate being called a "chump".

I feared that might happen. Given that Validator shows these too (?), I'm considering dropping this feature from my script...

Toolbox also highlights these, although who knows how long Toolbox will be around....

Now I can't remember which way WMECH highlighted them, because I've been using the Toolbox+Validator highlights for it, and I think I used bgodette's WMECH fork for a time before that. Validator just shows a segment highlight, so I would always use Toolbox's highlight as well – Toolbox would draw a circle around the node itself. I'm much less likely to ignore a bright purple/yellow circle around a node when editing quickly than I am to ignore a standard Validator highlight, which could be for anything – because I know the problem ahead of time and I can fix it very quickly.

But I don't even know if this is helpful because I don't remember which way WMECH does it... :oops:

edit Oh yeah, my point is, I still think it's worth having in addition to Validator if it will show them by highlighting the node, rather than by highlighting the segment. With Toolbox in serious limbo, I think this is something WMECH could do well.

House numbers are not used until touched by an editor. It doesn't have to be recently. It just has to have a "Last edited by" date.

No, houses don't often move. But a lot – A LOT – of the imported house number data is wrong, very wrong.

Hi! I've found a problem with the beta 1.93.

When I try to bridge the segments of Arthur Rd over I-87 here, the edit happens, but the save button does not light up and the save number does not show.

https://www.waze.com/editor/?env=usa&lo ... 445&zoom=5

I narrowed it down to WMECH. To reproduce, I select the middle segment of Arthur Rd first, then the east segment.

It throws the following error:

I'm not sure they should be highlighted at all, and if anything, it should be subtle and also documented (maybe in an explanatory mouseover it could say that that is not necessarily an issue). We don't want people to put things into the wrong categories just because none of the general categories fit. Tobacconists go in "shopping and services" because there isn't a narrower category that fits. Same with liquor stores, and those are just the two I could think of, there are plenty more.

Oh, that's a pretty good idea actually. The dashed line does sound pretty subtle now that I think about it and I can abide that too.

Would miss a lot that way – many parts of the US at least aren't part of any city at all.

BTW, curious about the criteria for the yellow highlight. For example, our airport is highlighted despite its name including the word "Airport" and its being typed "Airport".

Yes, it highlights points as well.

Posts regarding beta features were moved to a new topic in the beta forum. Please refrain from discussing beta features in public. Thanks!
