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.

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 ... :?

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 city layer has now been (or is in the process of being) updated for the World Server. :D

This seems to have uncovered a bug in WME.

Where some cities have been renamed in the UK to remove (county) if one of them had alt names it has let the editor save the second city with the same name too far away from the first, so city blur is back!

Example:
Greetwell in North Lincolnshire which has alt street names on Messingham Ln and Greetwell in Lincolnshire

These are now linked on the cities layer despite being 25 miles apart.

Further to that I've now found examples of cities duplicated which DO NOT HAVE alt names so it looks like a general error check fail :shock:

On firefox and chrome, I can no longer scroll the whole web page. I used to have a scroll bar on the right side.. This makes the map area horrible. Whats the trick to enlarge the map area? . The top header on the page seems like its to large... Can you guys set the map window to scroll on the server side?

Help...

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

I can't get map editors to talk to me via the forum :roll:


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!!!
