Discussion for the unofficial, community-developed addons, extensions and scripts built for the Waze Map Editor.

The official index of these tools is the Community Plugins, Extensions and Tools wiki page.

I understand that it could *potentially* cause issues, but most of TB could *potentially* cause issues if mis-used. I, and some other editors I have chatted with on the topic, just want to know if there was an actual widespread problem with people using the tool, or was it done because of potential "what-if" situations. If it is the latter, then editors need to be allowed to give some feedback on how we can come up with a workable tool that addresses some of the concerns without crippling the tool as it has been.
The #1 concern with this script is potential abuse or accidental mistakes. The change was made because it was a bug, this was not intended behavior. It remains unintended behavior--if a road has a restricted turn, even if unconfirmed, then the junction is not "unnecessary". I'm sorry that this has caused problems, I really am (I've edited a decent amount of basemap), but the tool was never intended to function this way. We won't be reverting the change, it was done for a reason and that reason remains valid.

Well, no one said we aren't.... ;)

The script now downloads a Google spreadsheet for localization. It makes things easier to navigate and allows the TbCCs to change things as needed. The permission is for that sheet.

"The script now downloads a Google spreadsheet for localization. It makes things easier to navigate and allows the TbCCs to change things as needed. The permission is for that sheet."

Anyway, thanks for the great work and update, can select the highlight layer again, yeay :D :D :D
Fancy Permalinks has different links depending on the current country in WME's view. The TbCCs are the one designated person per country who is able to change these and decide which permissions are granted to various ranks in that country. The spreadsheet allows that to be customized much more easily--the script now grabs the spreadsheet and pulls the links from there instead of having them hardcoded into the script itself. The permission for google.com is necessary because the script now also accesses Google to get the script.

If abuse of the tool isn't the driving concern, then that means there is a solution that could be had.
What would you propose? If we ignore the abuse aspect, how is the script supposed to tell what's "allowed" vs "not allowed"? Do we just ignore the fact that they're unconfirmed and set all turns to allowed even though that may not be the case? This isn't something we've arbitrarily decided, several champs and RCs were asked and the response was a very clear "don't do it". In general the idea was understood and appreciated, but because of the potential abuse to the map the idea was rejected.

It did not work, and I could not close the window without a browser refresh.
This is a known issue, we're working on it. Sorry about that!

Firefox version upload is fixed.

FIREFOX USERS WILL NEED TO REMOVE THE ADDON AND REINSTALL IT! (link)

This is due to a change with the way Firefox handles addons. Nothing we can do about it, sorry! Future updates should work automatically.

Yes I have uninstall previous version of TB before ;)

EDIT : No problem to re-install 1.6.8.1 Beta on the same Firefox 43.0 64 bits edition.
Upload has been fixed, sorry about that!

I made this script a few months ago to address this exact layers problem. It automatically reloads the page without the layers if the URL has layers in the link.

This is all related to the same issue, it's wreaking all kinds of havoc with many scripts. Waze renamed a function called registerShortcuts to _registerShortcuts, yet it still does the exact same thing. All script authors have to fix this. In the meantime, the scripts only partially load, which is causing all kinds of stuff to be messed up.
