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.

Speaking of ads...it would appear that advertisement landmarks (probably on a hidden layer) are coming up in WME.

Put in 'Seattle, WA' into the search box, and you'll get two results:
'Seattle, WA'
'LIVE HERE! - ...(address)'

If you go into the Waze client, you'll see that this is a advertising popup for a location. I'm thrilled actually that Waze is getting more sources for these! - but my guess is that these aren't meant to be a searchable layer in WME?

Oddly, it only worked for me if I capitalized Seattle, WA exactly the way you did.

Looks like an empty lot to me.

The current version of WME works far better in general than the previous version. The tabbed panel is definitely a winner for the user scripts.
The segment join pop up appears like it should without having to save first. In about 90% of the cases where multiple new segments were selected, it did not appear in the old one.
My biggest single gripe is the geometry nodes. The old solid square nodes contrasted much better, and was much more visible when located near or on top of segment joins.
I don't mind them being round, but no fill vs filled should be considered as a preference setting. Currently the nodes hide very well when zoomed out far enough.

I second that. In addition, the landmarks layer is either conflicting with the highlighting tool or becoming more and more of a b* on Chrome. I always turn it off, but when I add a single landmark it automatically goes on and from then onwards nothing is selectable/editable even if I turn it back off. I have to reload.

Possible fix for:
"Highlighted segment has been extended beyond the allowed distance"

I was putting in a rail line (people insist on riding with waze turned on and that generates 'missing road' errors).
I had dragged one end of the new segment for a long distance and saved.
Went back and dragged the other end.
Tried to save.
Got the dreaded error message.
Decided, rather than undo until it would accept, to try something else.
I joined a temporary segment to the segment I had been extending.
WME allowed me to save!
Delete the temp segment and node and saved some work!
May be a 'one time thing' and it may never work again, on the other hand, try it, it doesn't cost anything.

As I understand, end roads without junction point on the end have problems with routing. Isnt it possible to automatically add junction points to all open ends? So we do not have to do it for ALL existing open roads?
Or at least start automatically add junction point to newly drawn open end segments.

The workarounds have been documented for quite some time: http://www.waze.com/wiki/index.php/Map_ ... _the_limit

Just splitting the segment is enough because then there are new segments with start/end points instead of an original segment with an end point moved too far.
