A laudable goal, I agree. Though "knowing the editor" isn't the same as "editing correctly." Like knowing how to push keys on a piano isn't the same thing as playing chopsticks, much less a concerto by Mozart or Tchaikovsky. Understanding how the editor works is level .5. Knowing how to properly restrict turns at a diamond interchange, or how a SPUI should be constructed, or when to and not to split a roadway, or how parking lots are to be created (and not created) in Waze are a key part of understanding required for considering oneself an experienced editor.

The ranking system continues to evolve. There may not be a finish line.



Yeah I'm not looking to play a concert.... I just want to make decent music. Im very mechanically inclined and fully understand "restricting turns" so you dont send Wazers the wrong way down streets. I understand the gravity of that situation and responsibility...I'm a cop. I'm just looking to be able to edit a little more that's incorrect. No biggie tho. :) I'll just do what I can with what I have. :D

You don't need to stay at level 1. The first sentence of my reply is key.


Yeah I've applied for Area Manger and that will take me to level 3. That would be a nice improvement. I think most everything in my area though is a Level 1 or a Level 5 edit.

Then you're on your way! :) If stuff is locked which needs unlocking, PM the last editor first. If you don't get a response, there is an Unlock Requests forum.


Cool! Thanks! :)

daknife wrote:Also the reason for the split is that many edits listed as being by level 5's were likely performed when those level 5's were level 3 or lower. Edit ranks increase with the editor. So the way it usually goes is many start editing at level one, they play around with it a bit, maybe fix a few local roads where they see problems and then edit less and less. Others decide editing is fun or their town/area really needs some work and request AM status. They clean up their area and see the improvements. At which point they become satisfied that their town is working and stop or just monitor their area, or they really enjoy it and keep on editing, adding more territory as needed to ensure they have edits to make. Then they hit the magic 200k edit mark and get bumped to level 5 allowing greater reach and eliminating the need to constantly add more AM territory.



Makes sense. Hopefully I'm approved as an AM and once again someone can benefit my town. :)

Thanks all for your input!

I agree, been active for two years. Previously a high level moderator for another Trap program. Here I am a level one, mostly because of limited area in which I am allowed to edit doesn't make it worthwhile. It doesn't remember everywhere I've been over the years, only recent travel.

It says somewhere to "contact us" if you want to level up, but don't know who/where to contact??? :?
