"Recent Drives" lines from the Missing Road reports are still missing half the time.

Don't know if it's possible, but some sort of restriction on closing a UR that has a conversation you're not involved in may be useful.

As it stands now: an error is reported. Editor A initiates a conversation for more information. Editor B comes along X period of time later, [doesn't read the conversation, can't figure out what's wrong,] marks it as not identified, and that's it unless the original reporter takes the time to report it again.

With the restriction enacted, Editor B can't close the report until Y period of time later unless certain conditions are met (they're AM/CM/staff, the report has been open for more than Z days, etc). Even if Editor B adds something to the conversation, there would still be a period of time before they can close it.

Just a rough idea that came to mind after having more than a couple URs closed out as not identified within a few hours of starting a conversation by some overly-enthusiastic and rambunctious editors :evil:

Yes, something should be done. Some editors keep closing reports with questions as not identified before someone even answers. And those editors do not reply to private messages :(

And can recorded drives and routes lines in UR's be made double longer (not including start and final point of course). Currently they are often not long enough to determine whats was the problem.

Any help on this? anybody?

Time restrictions on turns seems to have improved (not perfectly) the problem. Seems to me that time restrictions on segments are kind of useless?

Best.

The restrictions I set on the INTL server didn't work at all. Those are all about a reversible street. Were set on past Nov 3rd, so should be already up. Actually the road (which was one way) is already presented as double way. (so routing was a mess today :oops: )

I set it only by restricting segments. I didn't use any turn restriction because supposed the segments would be enough. Is that the missing part?

If anyone mind taking a look, a small part of the reversible street is this:

I did look and this was my reaction. I think we really need Ohad to tell what is going on with restrictions with date ranges.

How do we handle users with driven area permissions that allow them to start conversations in URs but have no ability to edit anything on major roads in the area because their level is too low, and therefore no hope of being able to solve anything?

They can still try to locate the issue and report it in a corresponding subforum or thread. Being a local editor or driver, even with no privileges yet, they can have the necessary knowledge, which some CM might be well missing.

In our area it proceeds this way already for ages.

If the UR communications were rewarded with some e.g. 3 points per message, they would also be well stimulated to do so.

Perhaps it wasn't your intention, but what I got from that statement is "what good are these useless low-ranked editors? All they can do is ask questions and then not be able to fix anything!"

Which, as a low-ranked editor, is rather offensive :|
