Has it been considered to have junction boxes lowered from 5 to 4 (maybe 3?)? I thought in the ROW servers, JB's were lower ranked, or able to be set lower.


ROW user here. R4 can see and tinker with the JB option, but can't save them (yet).

New WME version v2.4-21

Postby delilush » Wed Jan 03, 2018 11:11 am

Hi Everyone,

we have a new WME version that includes mainly changes in user permissions:

* Changes in permissions: L1 editors cannot delete segments unless they created it themselves
* Changes in permissions: L1&2 editors cannot set difficult turns
* Changes in permissions: L1 editors cannot close URs
* Credit/debit card checkbox is not labelled correctly - FIXED
* WME is slow - PARTIALLY FIXED
* New translations

Happy Editing!

Either the text is wrong (adding a level to the normalized level instead of the 0-based level?) or there's an additional rule for managing URs outside of the management area. I'm a bit hesitant to create a bug topic about this as I'm not certain whether there actually is a bug.

Please open a bug.

Then just manually promote them locally to L2.

I also agree with this idea and the new permissions. This will also help promote the use of the Mentoring program for newer editors, and bring those lower ranking editors into the community to work together.

Huge thanks for the UR-closing restriction to L2+!

As it happens, I proposed this 3 and a half years ago. After a year with no traction I was discouraged. After two years I was frustrated and depressed. The third year I became resigned and fatalistic. After that I went into a bit of a decline.*

Anyway it's wonderful to see this happen!

Very likely because many new users don't know the various editing standards in their region, and no doubt some have never communicated with their respective community. I know we had some that went around and set a ton of them to difficult turns without any discussion and caused a number of issues. We had to go back and remove all of them which took a lot of time away from other tasks.
