Yet another seemingly innocent little tweak in the way the native objects are handled by WME, causing yet another script error...

In this latest version of WME, the extra UI elements (e.g. drag points for adjusting the place outline) shown when you select a place are now added into the W.map.landmarkLayer.features[] array as additional objects - in previous versions of WME, and in this version if no place is currently selected, the array contained ONLY the place objects themselves, and so each entry in the array could be safely be tested for those properties we know are common to all place objects. Now that WME is spewing UI objects into that array as well, attempting to access place properties from a UI object leads to a script error, which in turn leads to the accelerated scrolling bug.

Thanks for the report, this has now been fixed in the development code and should be released "soon"...

3.24 fixes various compatibility issues with the latest WME release, adds basic popups for place update markers (further enhancements to follow), adds private place filtering, and inhibits all popups whilst dragging stuff around.

[BUG REPORT]

Please change the link you use (in the pop-up) to open a UR in a new tab/window. The format you are using no longer opens the UR. See complaint in WME thread

A request to the highest of high, the script writers of URO+:

Filtering Places by recent edit. I'd like to be able to track down recent edits to places by "trusted" editors in my area.

Maybe also be able to filter places by those with/without photos, so I could keep an eye out for bad photos.

I notice a small problem with URO plus that should be easy to fix:

I was in the process of dragging the 'street view' icon to a spot I wanted to view from and URO plus pop'd up info windows that got in the way as the cursor got over a restricted segment.

Could you block pop-ups when the mouse button is down, so that things don't pop up while one is in the process of dragging?

Caution: one still needs to be able to click WITHIN an already pop'd up info window to select items in there for various reasons (like to copy the info or select a link).

URO+ is SO helpful. It is the only reasonable way to get Area Manager information from the map -- currently the toolbox is not doing it.

The Waze team, honestly, should be looking at this code and asking for license to use it to improve WME. After all, the editors are the geese that lay the golden eggs.

Perhaps all Waze team members should be required to begin as level 1 editors and advance, through the normal means, to level 3 while performing tasks ranging from house numbering to identifying "stale URs", and be required to gain their level 3 only by approval from appropriate regional Champs rather than from waze support.

I think they would soon realize how essential the features of URO+ and several other extensions are to Waze' continued existence.

There is nothing wrong with interested members of the community figuring out improvements to the interface. That's another form of crowd-sourcing, I suppose.

It seems a bit odd that the waze team does not look a bit more closely at how they can better support the community members on whom they rely most heavily. Especially those like yourself who are willing to actually develop the tools that editing community value so highly.

I'm almost tempted not to bother trying to fix the green fog of despair (especially since my initial look into it suggested it wasn't going to be quite as simple as it could have been), because given how well this change has been received, it's one of those things Waze really should be forced into fixing themselves rather than relying on the goodwill of the editing community to sort out on their behalf.

Thanks. More than a few people have asked for the green to go over in the "Officical Feedback Thread". :mrgreen:
