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.

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:

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...


https://www.waze.com/editor/?zoom=5&lat=33.83021&lon=-84.27502&layers=BFTFFTTTFTTFTTTTFTTTTFT&segments=11744195 Permalink for reference.

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?

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.

You're confusing (understandably) editor rank with cones. As an Area Manager you would have been rank 2 (which would have shown as 4 cones in the editor.

As a Country Manager I am rank 4 in the editor, 6 cones under the old system, 5 cones in the new system.

Confusing indeed but rest assured nothing has really changed.

Okay, got it. This Editing Ranks page needs an update from somebody perhaps.

Waze were due to harmonize the ranks, we were waiting to see how. I'm still not convinced its done yet!

ps: the old editor should still be available for new editors, im afraid this one may be hard to understand for newcomers

Why? Then they have to learn twice. Best just learn on the new version which is fairly intuitive.

I have the same size resolution and get by just fine. Hit Shift + F for a little more headroom
