So if I interpreted it right, someone with a Editor Rank 3 or higher must force my changes before they will be official?
Maybe, if you need to move the address outside the allowed area or if it isn't accepted for another reason.
I was really trying to point you to this: "The Waze app and website address search mechanism do not use the internal house numbers and relies on external data sources."
Which is why I asked if you put the address in google, because (if you're in the US, Canada or lots of other countries), this is the only place which Waze will look right now. I am confused about what you wrote: "Right now I use the Google searsch function within the app and it works fine but I would hope that Waze could find it.."
