Map Editor major ver (Nov 5, 2012) Official Feedback

Postby fvwazing » Sun Dec 02, 2012 1:20 am

Ads and publicity can help the userbase of Waze grow - if the map is ready enough to be acceptable to the majority of the people. If that is not the case new wazers drop off after a week or so. Roughly 1% of the wazepopulation is - be it the slightest - interested in editing and that is a share so small that you will not reach them by advertising. The other 99% will remember from those ads only that Waze is not a solution but a problem needing a fix.

Cool find! Which reminds me... Is there any possibility to reset those speeds, apart from creating the segment new?

This sounds pretty much like jondrush's work-a-round for Loop Roads: http://www.waze.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=10&t=27728

While his method works great for loops, it does not seem to work for roundabouts that have only one segment.

BTW..., can you Permalink an example of one you have edited this way?

I've seen this too and it's not the old behaviour. You can select a segment and it will turn blue but not show the end points and not be editable. You can de-select it, select another segment and the same thing will happen. You have to refresh or hit permalink to fix it.

I think it started more recently than the introduction of the new editor, but possibly coincident with the switch to new infrastructure for INTL. Perhaps WME (on old infrastructure) is getting out of sync?

I'm using Chrome, latest version, on Windows XP. I won't be home & editing for a couple of hours, but I'll try disabling scripts to see if it makes a difference (apart from crippling my editing :P ).

When this happens, if I click anywhere on the screen, it places the geometry node at that spot. It's very annoying during mass edits and deletes, where I'm trying to delete a lot of unneeded driveways or nodes in a reasonable amount of time. The only workarounds are to either hit escape and cancel the action, or wiggle the cursor over the selected segment back and forth until it "releases" and goes back to a cursor.


I'm getting this happen all the time. Really annoying! :x I think it's a timing issue: I get the impression that it happens when you click on the link and immediately move the pointer away. Although it seems to have grabbed the node and you can't "drop" it, it hasn't actually done so. I normally save and then permalink and the node is back where it started. I shall have to try wiggling. :lol:
