Chrome, Version 21.0.1180.89, on Mac OSX 10.6.8.

Yes, clicking on the permalink makes the buttons show back up, and then they behave properly.

I've noticed a 'bug' in that when this is installed, the save and delete buttons no longer ungrey when they are able to be pressed.

Displaying 'measles' to every road just presented another excuse to 'fix' junctions that didn't need fixing.


This line of thinking may be appropriate for where you live, but in my part of the US, minor roads on Waze are often very heavily travelled despite not qualifying for primary or minor/major highway status. And in suburban areas, we don't have one way streets or, for that matter, much in the way of turn restrictions, so blindly allowing turns and fixing revcons are actually not that harmful for 99% of the area that I cover.

The save fix is not working for me either in Chrome.

Hmm. Yep, you're right! It didn't start doing it until I cleared cookies & cache today.

I had the same thing happen this morning as well. The whole editor was borked off and on so I had to give up. Glad to know it wasn't the beta script, at least.

Can you post some example permalinks?


Here's a permalink I found in the state of Mississippi. This is just a minor road; I fixed most of the examples in this area already. There had been a good 10-15 km of roads with the wrong state name east of this small town.

Crazy thing is, it isn't near a state line. Grenada is a good 120 miles from any state line at all!

I also edit in Alabama and Florida and find that Waze offers a choice of both states for a long distance past the state line. Waze obviously knows where the state lines are drawn, because if we edit these incorrect segments and don't change the state, it throws an error.

What do you think about adding a color option for null nodes (nodes joining two segments that are identical in type, direction, state and city with no real intersection)?

I utterly disagree. There are plenty of one way roads and turn restrictions in the suburban areas that I deal with. I have always found that Waze routes better through an area full of soft restrictions than an area that has been blindly QWd. The selfcons really don't have that much of an effect on routing.

These average times were also visible in the old cartouche editor. If I recall correctly, whenever these data are used to support a theory on why waze is behaving in a certain way, the developer's answer is that the average times we can see are not the data used by waze for routing.
