This is being looked into by management. Right now, the TOS/Privacy Policy doesn't allow it. It may be as easy as modifying that, but we're not sure.

There is no need to see the reporter name if there is a way how to communicate with the reporter directly in the editor at least as it was done in Cartouche.

This is a Firefox bug. Use Chrome.


Jason, if something is wrong in one browser and working in another one, it doesn't automatically mean, that it's fault of the browser. If you don't have an evidence for your declaration, please never write such a dumb things.

The horizontal selection bug is well documented throughout the forums. It happens in Firefox. I've never seen any mention of the horizonal selection bug in Chrome. It's a Firefox issue.

OK, maybe I missed something but still don't see why it's a bug of the browser and not the editor.

I currently see this behavior in INTL WME: after saving "Loading road data..." takes forever - until I hit permalink once. From then on it loads quick again, until the next save. This happens probably 50% of the time.

FF may have problems, but those has nothing to do with that.

What we really need are address and/or landmark mappings to specific lat/lon coordinates, precise enough to make sense in a driving context. This way we can accurately find anything from residences to specific stores in large strip malls to specific parking lots in parks. I realize it would undoubtedly be a massive undertaking, but it could launch Waze way ahead of everyone else in terms of locating places.


There is no guarantee at all that it will bring you to the right block, or even close, or the right side of the street. A quick-and-dirty process that pretty much excludes the manual checking invites for inaccuracies.

In some countries there exist publicly available records of house numbers. Waze could be helped by importing those, but I doubt that will put them ahead of the rest - they have access to those records as well.
