Time-based turn restrictions

Postby harling » Tue Mar 26, 2013 5:11 am

This thread has suggested that the FAQ and Best Practices documents appear to give contradictory advice on handling time-based turn restrictions. When limited to a cursory reading, I think they have a point. Since the discussion already had someone volunteer to change the Wiki, I thought it would be a good idea to bring it up here.

Great idea. If anyone has any concerns for the now current instructions in the Wiki on time-based turn restrictions, please voice your opinion. I have updated the FAQ today based on prior forum conversations. The "best map editing practices" article is as it was last edited in February from those same conversations.

The two Wiki locations are:
1. Best map editing practices - Time restricted turns

2. FAQ - Turn restricted turns

Can we all agree that "Timebased turnrestriction" is the phrase of choice here? Makes googling so much easier...

How does that help people who don't know that is how we decided to spell it? ;)

You can trust google in that "site:waze.com time turn restriction" gives some decent hits, but the forumsearch? Apart from that - do we have a glossary of some kind in the wiki? (I can not check right now)

I added a number of redirects for this page in the Wiki:

    * Time based turn restrictions (redirect page) (← links)
    * Time based turn restriction (redirect page) (← links)
    * Time restricted turns (redirect page) (← links)
    * Time restricted turn (redirect page) (← links)
    * Time-based turn restrictions (redirect page) (← links)
    * Time-based turn restriction (redirect page) (← links)
    * Timebased turnrestriction (redirect page) (← links)

There is nothing in the Glossary for this since it is more of a phrase than a term or word, but if we think it is appropriate we can add it.

Yes I think time based, timebased, or time-based (or something like that) should at least be in the glossary, then in the definition we can talk about / point to restricted (turns and/or roads)
