My notebook is horrible.

I haven't found any guidelines in this matter, so I add the mark. Is there a way to switch off the check for this in Validator?

Hawaii State Managers are in discussion as to using complete diacritical marks for all names. There is quite a movement here for making all things PC.

A localizer script can be written to augment Validator.
I'm not sure that it can disable the flags in the primary code, but it can add new flags based on local preferences including lock levels, street name conventions, etc...

Robert04101 wrote:Feature request: please add "Dead-end one-way segment" in reports. Such roads clearly can't exist in practice, but between base map errors and newbie editors creating one-way roads, I see a lot of these problem segments.

There certainly are places where these could be valid, specifically one-way stubs intended to force "stay" instructions where BC logic produces unclear or confusing results, but these should be locked 4+ anyways, and it never hurts to give them another look.

This WAS a feature of Validator until the WME changes of late 2014.
It was actually a flag for "No inbound/outbound connectivity of driveable segment" so not only did it flag dead end one-way segments, it also flagged segments with turn restriction issues.
We lost that at the same time we lost notification on RevCons and other junction-related problems.

Toolbox and Highlighter still do a good job of flagging things like RevCons, but Validator no longer includes them in the report screen. I miss that function.

I like the idea of using the settings tab.
Likewise for other scripts that have a minimal interface, such as Mass Camera Eraser (which currently appears above Validator)

We did.
"No inbound/outbound connectivity of driveable road"

That function went away in August 2014 when turn restriction data was moved from the segment to the junction (likely in preparation for JB). This was the same time we lost Validator visibility/flagging of Revcons and unconfirmed turns.

Given that Validator can pull flags from WMECH and TB, I would really like to get RevCon and Unconfirmed Turn flags back in the Validator report...
Getting back the "no inbound/outbound" may be more daunting as it requires the analysis of both the segment data (determine directionality and if routable) and the junction node, then comparing the two.
It may be too much complexity for what is essentially a fairly simple script.

I agree, it was a good feature when we had it (so long as that specific feature is locked so as not to display "errors" on segments locked above the editor's level, as there are many times that we create these intentionally)

+1

Apparently some editors don't like having a second row of tabs... I have 3 :D

Confirming, seems to be fine on Chrome, still broken on Firefox.

I was just wondering, is there a way to get this to scan your editable area? I have looked around the script and this forum. But could not locate anything about that, I am guessing not?

Thanks!

Only if your editable area fits on one screen ;)

Spirit_of_76 wrote:I don't think that Validator is going to get an update. I've checked the forum profile page for berestovskyy. There is no last seen date. Also, his editor profile shows his last edit was 505 days ago. I'd say that indicates he's inactive. Is there anyone that can take over this script?

The script itself was updated last January, last post was December, but I agree that the author has possibly "orphaned" the script for whatever reason.

Regardless, it is still his work and he should be contacted before someone else begins to modify and distribute it under the same name.

Of course, anyone may independently develop a script with the same functions.
I've believed for a long time that many functions of Validator could be programmed into WMECH.

The Validator "reports" option is invaluable not only for cleaning up the map, but for discovering new editors who could benefit from mentoring and being introduced to the community.
