The usefulness is potentially there, but like ethics of some types of genetic engineering like cloning, for example, I think the potential for mass problems from a tool like this is simply so great, that just because it can be done, doesn't mean it should be done, even if used by only a limited group of people. The map simply doesn't need to be mass updated in this manner. Just do the work and don't worry about doing it faster or easier.

I applaud the effort and technical skill required to pull off something like this, but I would rather see it not implemented. Unfortunately, this well-thought-restricted-distribution by the OP, which is very much appreciated, thank you!, the next coder interested in amassing points and nothing else, will not be no ethical about it.

I've played little bit around with the script this afternoon with not saving anything at all, and i must admit that it has enormous potential and on the other hand enormous potential to harm the map. I was a little bit shocked to see what is possible with this and what would be if an editor is messing up the code and hit save after only one function i.e. abbreviations, unbeliebable what all can be screwed up in a short time. So it is definitely better to never share it to the mass. The fact that it is not fully userfriendly makes it more dangerous.
I hope it will be used wisely from those who have the code until now.

Thank you for your script, it's awesome!

I want to report you this thing I've noticed. This clearly wrong segment is reported if selected but it's not highlighted. (Maybe you've have decided not to highlight streets?).

Fixed.

Still not working, now it's not even reported as a mistake on the left panel when it is selected.
Edit: eventually it was detected but still not highlighted (at least on the beta editor).

Sorry, still nothing (but thank you for your support!)

What i still see when the segment is not selected (after clearing the cache of the script, doing even a CTRL+F5, turning off all the scripts except yours, toolbox and tried with WME CH on or off):

Sure, there are scripts like Toolbox or JNF which fix nodes/turns/etc etc. Those scripts are quite mature and already tested by many editors. There is no reason to implement the same functionality once again, so this WMET script can just initiate some of the JNF functions, but in large scales, i.e. for a whole city.

doctorkb wrote:I'm *very* interested in an abbreviation script... though I don't think I want it to be applied universally.

Well, here are just a couple of examples when it is safe IMO to alter street name:
1. "St.X" -> "St.[space]X" or vice versa.
2. "P" -> "[P]"
3. "A4 (E40)" -> "A4 - E40" or vice versa.
4. "st." -> "St." (case)
etc etc

Also we can safely abbreviate (or expand the abbreviation) with thoroughly defined rules, like:
if the length of the street name is > 15, abbreviate "Saint" to "St."

Most of those rules will be country-specific (i.e. will work only in certain countries) and will be agreed with country managers.

doctorkb wrote:I'm very much against a "do stuff, then pan, then do it again" sort of script -- if it was that universal of a change, it should probably be done by Waze on the database backend.

You might be right. But on the other hand we could get it done in few minutes rather than days. And it's my main concern to make the script safe.

Actually I came up with the idea after I asked few times to unlock a road. The road was unlocked but some of the segments were still locked. So I asked to unlock them too. And then a nearby road... So I thought why can't we just have a script to lock/unlock roads in an area...

So I guess I'll start with this mass lock/unlock functionality and we'll see how it goes ;)

Agreed. But to simplify things now I'm leaning towards closed distribution scheme...

Hi!
The v0.2 is ready.
At the moment this script is not available for download.

To test the script just over the current map view, please use "1 (run once)" button.
