new collection of messages from lost souls:

Type: General error
Description: lake not at correct location
Reported on: October 06

There was no lake in the editor but one did show in the live-map. Must be on a layer I can't see or edit in the editor

Type: General error
Description: my car keeps spinning round and round and I end up driving backwards and then forward
Reported on: September 25

maybe sometimes you need to NOT drink and drive? Certainly avoid abrupt changes in driving direction.
I think the next was from the same person, obviously (to me) having problems with his GPS.
Type: General error
Description: turning me around
Reported on: September 25

next, NOT a map problem:
Type: General error
Description: traffic jam on the wrong side
Reported on: October 17

If I am driving and the traffic jam is on MY side, I consider it to be on the wrong side!

I don't know how to report accidents/hazards/jams in the other direction on divided highway.
It would be nice if there was a WAZE to do that.
Type: General error
Description: map says to turn but voice directions never mention the turn onto grand central
Reported on: October 22

I have had some WRONG verbal directions also (told me to turn left when a right turn was proper and shown on the screen.) Maybe last update on client fixed.
Type: Wrong driving direction
Description: 925 Spur 10 is the real address for the Rosenberg Parole Office
Reported on: October 07

I guess his fellow parolees NEED to know that. Since I have no idea where it is, (the balloon was in the middle of no where). I can't help them.
Type: Missing bridge overpass
Description: Lynchburg Ferry
Reported on: September 29

The gps track showed the Ferry Route. Not sure what I am suppose to do with it. Guess I could put in a railroad track there.

Two 'related' error reports and the area where I found them:
Type: General error
Description: this neighborhood is about .25 mile east from what it should be.
Reported on: October 31

Type: General error
Description: this neighborhood is about .25 mile WEST if where it should be.
Reported on: October 31

The roads were displaced from the satellite view so I cleaned up the area.
Type: Wrong driving direction
Description: follow me!
Reported on: August 06

But I don't know where you are going!

The spinning and turning around is the effect of flakey GPS signal. Recent client versions do a decent handling of that. At least on my phone.

Can you guess what the user what trying to get to? Yep, the dots for the road that wasn't driven before. I haven't seen anyone so aggressive about getting those points. :lol:

Suncrest had no turns enabled, and Pescos Ct, had to direction or turns. Fixed. The next map update, should make it so the driver can get the points.

The bigger issue here is the simple fact that you can't grow pickles. :roll:

No wonder my pickle bush has never yielded anything.

Did you wait long enough for results? I once stuck my pickle in a bush and it produced something, but not for 9 months.

Just cleared out 3 UR's for wrong directions, drive trace matching the waze route all on the same road. Probably the same person who put up 8 a couple days ago, all the same road (I-70) all for wrong directions, and about half when they didn't even have a route in.
