Re: [Script] Highlights for Segments & Landmarks - v1.6 Feb

First things first: thanks for this script! I've been editing on and off but recently I've really gotten into it; this and the URO are great tools.

I noticed that the text over at userscripts.org lists a "Filter by Editor" function that is available for area managers. Is it possible to let regular editors have access to this as well? Maybe just for their own user name? Or, can you provide a "Highlight My Edits" function?

You see, whenever I fix something I always look around the area to see if anything needs a little tidying up, if you will... okay, the fact is, I can't control my need for precision and order! If I see a sloppy, converted pave, node-filled street, I have to delete the nodes and make it pretty. If there's a road that's closer to the sidewalk than the center of the street, I have to line it up. The next thing I know, I've aligned an entire neighborhood with the aerials and removed hundreds upon hundreds of useless nodes. Ahh, a thing of beauty. Anyway, I typically use the unsaved (orange) segments as an indicator of where I've been but when you get too many edits stacked up saving can have problems. Saving often is a must but, then I lose my place. Being able to highlight what I've done in an area would allow me to save and move on quickly.

Lastly: RevCons? SelfCons? Can someone tell me what these terms mean?

Yes, it does this already.

+1 on the option to highlight segments <10m and 10-15m. Its useful to supress u-turns on narrowly divided highways where a direct u-turn is prohibited.

I've noticed that the RevCons and SelfCons can sometimes cause funky routing if there's bad traffic on a nearby highway and Waze is trying to detour it on more local roads. However, I've only seen this happen if there are a lot of map errors in the neighborhood, e.g. minor highways or primary streets not identified and properly connected to bigger highway networks, inaccurate soft one-ways, etc. - all probable limitation from the base map I would imagine. In any case, I've only corrected these, with the junction node fixer script, when there is a UR or problem pin nearby complaining about weird routing and can't justify the weird route based on the speed information the segments involved show.

Perhaps the RevCons and SelfCons should only be highlighted for Area Managers (Level 3 and up)? I think the script already does that for some other things. Maybe it already does it for this too?

Is that different than the feature which disallows routing on short segments (10m) to prevent u-turns?

I suppose not. I didn't realize it was a "feature". I'm sure that's nice elsewhere...

Again 10m? I hope it got raised back to 15m?

...in New Orleans, U turns are a necessary part of driving—we have a lot of Michigan lefts here, whether or not anyone actually calls them for what they are.

Our user added a bit of code to add two checkboxes for highlighting segments 10-15 m and 15-20 m long. I could extract and post the differences, or port it to the recent version first (not seen the new code yet, maybe it is a question of few minutes, maybe much more).

Most newbie editors that may make the mistake WeeeZer14 discussed don't know about the script.

I'm afraid not. The script is deliberately coded to only show turn issues on major roads to encourage responsible editing.

Tim, it's easy to edit the script today to show all Roads and include Soft Turns with the node highlighting, but would it be possible in a future update to add something in the GUI for this, maybe "Show all node highlights" or something, so we don't have to edit the script?

Oh I didn't notice it, so you can forget my idea unless we find a reason to see lower level rank.

The script already adjusts the width or opacity of the highlight according to lock level I thought?
