The descriptions and details are removed, but I don't have an access to the champs forum, sorry.

I planed to create a per country set of scripts with your help and then in v0.3 make a GUI with just a list of those scripts. For instance, the script "segment.lock = 1" would be named as "Unlock all segments" and available for every country. The "Apply the lock map" script would be just for specific countries and for lvl 5 or 6 (per country) editors. Then the "Check street name abbreviations" etc etc.

In v0.3 I planned to make just a list of checkboxes so the editor does not edit the script, but just switch it on or off (see picture below). That was the plan...

Here is the list of features to be implemented in v0.3. Please review it and correct me sooner rather than later ;)

Security:
- script will be reviewed by a waze champ prior to next release;
- WMET 0.3 will be compiled and encrypted, so the source code will not be available;
- the download link will be provided on request and only to: Lvl5+? champs only? YOU DEFINE IT

User interface:
- just a predefined list of fixes (see an image in my previous post);
- user will be able just to switch every fix on or off, no options;
- a fix will appear on the list if WME is positioned over a specific country and editor's level is sufficient;

Fixes/features to be available for ALL COUNTRIES:
1. Pause on highlight: WMET will pause if any of the segments is highlighted by the Toolbox or Colour Highlights (idea of paulkok_my)
2. Fix one letter city names: get the name from adjoining segments/top city.
Exceptions: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_short_place_names
3. Insert a space after abbreviations: 'St.X' -> 'St.[space]X' (but not at the end)
4. Unlock all segments (just to remind we're always talking about editable for the editor segments)
5. + call the Toolbox fixes by OyyoDams
6. + functionality of Node Remover by bgodette

Fixes which might be available for SOME COUNTRIES (upon the champs/CMs request):
1. Apply the lock map: lock all freeways to lvl 5, majors to lvl 4 etc.
2. Transliterate cyrillic: add an alt street with transliterated street name, i.e. 'Львів' -> 'Lviv'
3. Abbreviate: if the name is longer than predefined limit -> abbreviate according to the table
4. Correct abbreviations: expand incorrect abbreviations ('Dv' -> 'Divide'), correct the case 'st.' -> 'St.', or correct the abbreviation 'St.' (at the end) -> 'St' (street)
5. Correct road types: if the road name starts with a pattern -> set corresponding road type
For instance: 'A[digits]' -> freeway, 'O[digits]' -> primary street etc.
6. Correct some road names: 'A4 - E40' -> 'A4 / E40'
7. Correct ramp names: '... CityA, CityB' -> '... CityA / CityB'
8. Change walking trails to railroads (taking elevation -5 into account)
9. etc upon request

What do you think?

I'm interested. It should be champs only, at least in the US. There are enough L5s around whom I've never, or very rarely, seen on the forums.

Can this feature pausing at any segments highlighted by toolbox or colour highlights be available for L3 and above since the codes is hidden? Make it something like Toolbox where all features is available for CM but for L3 and L4 are given limited features.

As for the security, that is a good improvement since all the source code will be encrypted from user view.

Since if all fix are done base on other scripts done by other writer. It can be another dangerous attempt to save all what is found and all fixes found cannot be undone. Saving all the the fixes can be potentially dangerous. Therefore if can would be better if all the error found can be undone manually. This will give the editor to chance to go through all the fixes and confirm it before saving.

Hah, sorry. I imagine it could be available on a per-user trust basis for "good" L5s who are active on the forums and good at editing. Just code it for L5+ and hope it doesn't get into the wrong hands.

It could be done since scripts have access to who is logged in to WME. So simply restrict to username.

bgodette, not a bad idea, but keep in mind, how many L5+ people we have worldwide now. That list would be pretty large. Perhaps just restrict to L5+ would be better?

Why would you trust anyone on edit count alone?
