So it seems. Does this mean that landmarks will become searchable items?

I've got a boring editing problem.

I noticed a map error while driving on a road, and I'd like to fix it.

When I enter into the editing screen, I verified that, even if the whole road area is available for editing (that's very close to my last drives), the system says I'm not enable to edit it...

I checked the tutorial, I should be able to do it...

any suggestion? is that my problem or some kind of bug?

I'm using Chrome 22.0.1229.94 m

Ciao


Is the segment you're trying to edit locked by a higher level user? If you're trying to edit a major highway or complicated junction, it's common practice to lock these at a high level to prevent inexperienced editors from making changes.

Either way, you may want to post a permalink in the update requests forum along with the general location and a brief description and someone can try to help you out.

No, that's a primary road (not a major highway)
I'm trying to deny the possibility to turn south, into a secondary road (recently blocked to non-residential traffic).

Here it is the permalink:
https://it.waze.com/editor/?lon=9.57452 ... s=83328752

Attached a screenshot. The green road with arrow is the one I'm driving on.
Even if it is into my driving area (confirmed by the tool), you can see on the left that I'm not enabled to edit :\

thanks for hints

Was it announced anywhere? Status mentions 5-6am, it's been working at least since 10am and it's 2pm now ;)

In the Image above, you can see on the South end of the Street that there is no way to add a right turn to the circle. This leaves directions always leading to the left regardless of which way is closer. I'm not sure it this is a systemic issue whenever there is a street configuration like this or if it's just a misconfiguration in this specific street. Any adice?

Just from the image it looks like Reserve Circle is a loop. A segment can't start and end on the same node, it needs an extra junction on it somewhere...

Not a big issue, no but it would still be nice to be able to differentiate between with/without junction nodes, perhaps with a different shape A or B. Hacking a script together to get something to show has to be worse in practice than the company showing it themselves?
Not knocking the script, Timbones and the other guys have done an amazing job, and I use it all the time ;) Just saying :)

Sorry I didn't want to create a discussion of why a segment needs to be terminated. I and the other poster above are complaining that with A and B at the ends of a segment we can no longer see if it is terminated /connected properly to another segment or not. But thanks to Tim's tool, this is no longer a big issue.
