I think we're ready to go - give it another eye and I can then post it in a new thread.

Opener:
Hello fellow volunteer editor!

We prepared this welcome post for users that have little or no experience editing Waze Maps, aiming to kick-start their editing adventures by providing information, links, and answers to key questions.

The Waze community in Ireland is relatively small compared to other countries around the globe, however with the help of some dedicated editors over the years, our map quality is at a very high level in and around Dublin, including much of Wicklow, Kildare, and Meath, as well as the highway network. Large cities are also up to date, but without local editors some elements might be challenging. There are plenty of areas mainly in the countryside with unnamed, missing, or mis-mapped roads that need work. Of course, there will always be changes, new roads, updated junctions, etc. so local knowledge is very important. On top of all that, when Waze launches new features, more editing is required to update our map. So the more hands we have on the map editor the better!

I'll pause here; have a look at the list below and feel free to hit reply for any guidance or questions you might have :)


Adjusting the list further:

And closing with something like:

Good catch - but what's the difference? That link still redirects me to https://waze.com/editor/

I found 2 more very useful links in the UK wiki here - shall I throw them in before the WME link?

So, here's the final product! https://www.waze.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=119&t=282716

Can we delete/archive this post and make the new one an announcement?

Also, shall we demote these 3 since the info in the new welcome pack includes links about the topics? What do you think?

I think we can leave it unlocked, I see no harm for a newbie to reply there.

Can we delete or archive the present thread?
