Video at the bottom is pretty clear.

<delete>Tnx - this clears up the issue and explains it very well.</delete>

Correction - the directions on the wiki don't match up to what the editor has. However, I was able to stumble around and get the editing of the divided loop, but now I can't save. It gives me an error on the street split, but doesn't actually tell me what the issue is.

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...

You are correct, Reserve Circle is a loop. If I understand right, in order to get this turn in I have to put another road in to get a junction in place - like a little stub connecting road? It there a link to an example of this similar situation?

Is this is simply a limitation in the logic control for streets?

Not sure if this is the right spot, but I believe I have found a bug with the map editor. I cannot add a legal turn to a street:

Have you seen my post? select the segments that gives you errors, click on permalink, and go to waze.com/support, write ghost segments and post the permalink asking waze to remove those broken segments.

Trying to delete/edit/whatever a segment I found hiding under another road and can't.. meh..


Yes. It's one of those moments where one changes something, saves, and the change is not applied. As the changes are processed in the background, they should?may? eventually happen, and in the meantime you'll get the "have been modified" because you did modify them.

Unfortunately this kind of situation is prone to create ghost segments, which are segments that will return some kind of error even when the editor is working properly. Usually they are reflected as duplicated overlapped segments (imagine you move a node slightly to the left, which should "delete" the old segment and create a new one with the new geometry, but the first part fails and two segments remains, but the one meant to be deleted can't be changed anymore). Anyway, if this happens, search for ghost segments on the support nanprep form and ask them to remove them if any ghost happens.

Myself if I see my changes not being applied in max a page refresh I just give up and try again later. Had too many ghosts in the past

PS: it seems to be better now.

PS2: try to edit other stuff. it WME is stable, that is a ghost. Just select it and send the permalink to the support asking to remove the ghost segment.

I'm not sure Waze did this, or one of the user scripts.


AGHHHHH you are right, it's even not one of the most common ones and one I've installed and haven't yet tried out - WME Junction Node Fixer 0.0.7.3 WTH!?

Taking in consideration the "bug" I reported above, it would indeed be nice to be able to reset the averages, fwd and rev in separate. Because of this A-B reversal, I have now a lot of one-way segments with averages in both ways, and it would be nice to see 0 on the reverse direction which should never be driven.
