Funny, I'd deliberately looked for that before and it wasn't there but now when I click on the same section of freeway I first looked for it at, the link to add/edit an alternate is indeed there. I retract.

Same here, a lot of "nodes are not connected", specially with more than two segments. When I try to disconnect and reconnect them, usually one of the segments are not "snappable". Let's say to simplify only two segments. Dragging A into B snaps, but dragging B into A is like A isn't there. After a save it's ok, but now we need to be more careful and save a lot.

PS: +1 for the font decrease.

Another suggestion - the arrows for the segment direction are too hard to read when a node is selected, I usually can't discern if they go right or left or up or down :(. The arrow tip should be bigger or something, or revert back to the simpler < > version shown on unselected segments, instead of this <-- -->

I agree the large text on the left info tab is a bit overwhelming.

When you're doing thousands of edits it really helps having things a bit more condensed.

Working ok for me so far.

Still hoping to be able to send messages to UR's so I can at least paste a link to the wiki or forum
explaining why I didn't / couldn't fix the problem they reported.

I'd be happy just to see the name of the reporter. Then we could talk to the guy via the forum.

I like the new feature that highlights empty street names; now I can spot short unnamed streets. Is there any way that this feature can filter out Parking Lot Roads? None of these roads are ever named, or should be, so it makes the feature slightly less useful. Also, maybe a new segment type for joining 2 one way streets at cross roads so that they have different names going different directions. They have the same unnamed problem as parking lot roads.

I meant "at least we know who reported it" ;) I know what you mean, my reports explicitly say "personal note from davipt do not close" and just got one report closed. As I report everything as wrong route, so I can later get the violet suggested route and the green driven route and have more information (specially if I say "right petrol, left no", now I don't recall what the issue was. Fortunately thanks to the color highlights extension I could isolate the change the guy did and recall what it was (waze routed me through a side parallel street instead of the minor highway, probably to get munch points) and the guy redraw the street *under* the minor highway, so I was looking at the map, with the script telling me "one change from the guy", and not seeing anything green on the map.

So waze please tell me the nickname of the reporter!!!

This is being looked into by management. Right now, the TOS/Privacy Policy doesn't allow it. It may be as easy as modifying that, but we're not sure.

There is already a setting on the client to allow me to be anonymous, visible to friends or public. Just use that same privacy setting on the reports. The legal boilerplate should the same - the privacy applied to police/accident/etc reports visible on the client map should be the same as the privacy of a user report on the editor, or am I missing something?
