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

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.

Via my iPhone 3GS.


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

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

Is anyone else seeing the console log "filling up," that is, scrolling and scrolling due to errors like:

The page at https://www.waze.com/editor/ displayed insecure content from http://marx.waze.com/socket.io/1/xhr-po ... 2390335765.

It has "calmed down" a bit now, but a few minutes ago, it was logging a new error every second.

I believe so. This seems to jive with their recent announcement to show advertisers' companies and stores along the way, which most likely would have to rely on landmarks, given that other services have often not been at the correct location.
My guess is that locations would help with these advertisements, possibly by being able to attach descriptions and logos to a special type of landmark, which could also apply to gas stations.

I've had a whole slew of errors this morning caused by developers fiddling around with live. One would think that they would test updates in beta first *hint-hint*. :shock:

I posted this in the private beta forum, but it impacts the production editor also so here it is:

Address Numbering bugs:

- Have a segment with numbers assigned. Split the road by adding in a new road junctioned in somewhere in the middle. Result = the two segments that replace the original segment have IDENTICAL numbering. Expected = the numbering range should be distributed across the two segments based on a percentage of the original segment they represent OR prompt user for new distribution. Note = if you look at the segments BEFORE saving, it looks like this distribution is done, but when you save the address changes are not actually saved.

- Have two segments with numbers assigned. Contiguous ranges on each. Delete the node connecting the two segments. Results = the new segment is numbered with the range of just one of the segments. Expected = new segment should have the start range of one of the original segments and the end range of the other original segment. Note = no difference in what the editor shows before or after save.

Above behavior is present in both the beta and production editors right now.

Can you select a country? There is nothing in that dropdown here in the US...
