Why is it when I search on "Lincoln" in WME on the WORLD server and the 5 results I get are NE, IL, ME, MO, CA ... How about somewhere not on the NA Server?

These search results are useless as I'd have to be logged onto the www server to be able to edit them.

How about suppressing NA results on the World server and vice versa. I'm sure someone in Nebraska is really not interested in editing in Lincoln, UK.

The upgrade has broken the Brand field for Petrol (Gas) Stations.

When you look at a Gas Station the brand is blank.
Update it and Save.
Select the Gas Station again and it's blank!

Also instead of something we haven't been asking for being added to properties of objects on the Waze map how about something we have been asking for for almost 3 years like a COUNTY field for the UK and other ROTW countries?

I will look forward to updating the 7000+ petrol stations in the UK ... :?

If you are having problems with it loading it is most likely a conflict with a Greasemonkey script!

Disable Greasemonkey then re-anable the scripts one at a time.

Often the only solution for such a loop is to delete it as one piece, save your changes and then redraw. It's one reason such loops are such a big pain is that once created in the system, you can't edit them, you can only delete them.

Yep seeing this too, and since last weekend's problems if I change the zoom level, every now and then it goes to just highlighting the segments. The only fix is to save all changes to that point and then reload the page.

It would really be nice if the behavior was that primary AND alt names should be scanned for something that generates a shield...



+1

And another +1
The local name should have precedence and be on the primary, with the shield being pulled from the alternate while the primary name is shown.

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.

Which is funny as there is no problem identifying the person who addressed the UR in the email the system kicks out. That is a double standard.

I think someone's just dragging their feet and trying to make a good sounding excuse.

I don't mind people seeing that daknife was able or not able to solve the problem. But that's why you have the username and PM'ing via the forum to enable the communication. Seeing a username does not reveal an identity. It doesn't even give us an email address to try to associate with a real person. Just a username, that will send an email to the user without giving me at the sending end any way to see who is getting the email. It's actually a very private system, thus that argument totally fails.

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.

Right now, it is of no use. But, for those who do have streets which go by multiple names, it is nice to have the data be totally correct.

I use it because often, highways or routes overlap. The primary name is used for the name most used, and alt name is where other names or routes are input. In my state of the US, all highways are named, and those usually have a route #, but not always.

Also, the primary name is used for shield creation, but alternate names can hold a local name if the route name is the most popular local name.

Agreed but with the final death of Cartouche there is now no ability at all to edit that data. Even if incorrect, it's locked in without an ability to edit it. I'd love to adjust what's in a lot of highway segments now that shields are working, to be able to use the local or official "name" on a road and put the Hwy designation number in the alternate. I occasionally took the effort to load up cartouche and add the alternate designations but as I wasn't sure how well it was really working I hadn't made much of an effort to do so. Now should we want to we can't. My opinion, cartouche shouldn't have been killed (perhaps locked to CM status editors) until that feature was available in the WME. And any remaining level 6 locks will be much slower to get unlocked as we could do that in cartouche.
