This discussion doesn't look too good here in the public forums, especially only a few days after the champs-meeting at waze-HQ...!

We plan to add railroads to the client display.

You are already planning that for four years. What has been changed lately?
Moreover, some of you use railroads road type as a way to add comments in the editor. As we plan to add road types to the map soon - please try to remove these comments and avoid adding more of them so they won't go live :)
Better communication tools are also planned for the editor.

Those communication segments aren't for nothing. First give us some communication tools before pushing this trough!!
Why should it be pushed anyway? We didn't have it for four years. We can wait till we have a communication tool. Besides, we have created a work-a-round that works brilliant without any drawback.
Comment: there were some issues that made the routing use railroads and the navigation snap to railroad segments. These issue should be fixed.

Sticking to railroad segments is not a problem it's a requirement for using the railroad road-type.
The client should be fixed to the segment, otherwise all the speed data goes to the parallel segment.

Please make it work exactly like the walking trail and ped. boardwalk!!!!

^^ Because there are a lot of local rules for railroads that are different from what's been stated now.
I don't want people in my country using the railroad road-type.

But it's not going to happen any time soon, so no rush at all to remove them.

As soon as it will happen, we will ask for a complete removal of all railroads.
Or we ask for a rule in the validator and remove them manualy in a few hours ;-)

Like I said, use as notes is not the reason for "delay". A big change to the client map display is upcoming, but when it happens, it's going to happen all at once.

Railroads are already displayed in the Live Map, as are Runway/Taxiways.

Well, it was THE reason for the delay.

Noam said that 'Next week' the railroads would be displayed.
Then 'everyone' complained a lot and said they didn't want it, because they wanted a notes function in the editor first.
Then Noam said, okey, we will not make railroads visible in the next update.

Not that hard. That's why we wait till the last moment. As soon as they get displayed, one day later there gone. Now we can still use it if it's really needed.

Btw, it's not like there are hunderts of railroads laying across the benelux now ;-)
We don't advertise to use it, but sometimes it's just needed.

So you are saying Waze shouldn't tell us that Railroads are coming to the client soon and how we should handle railroads? I think quite the opposite, its great it telling us what is coming and how they expect a feature to work. What benefit is it to hide it where only champs can see?
