12.01.2014 v0.4.6:
- updated "Unneeded node A/B" checks
Now it checks if the total length of the adjacent segments is less than 1km

Probably the limit should be adjusted, any suggestions?

There is a minor technical issue with long segments: if a node is out of the screen, WME does not load it. So Validator does not even trigger the group of checks which analyze both end nodes (for instance, "No inward connectivity" and 'Same endpoints')

If no complains on that - I'll increase the length limit.

sketch wrote:To that end: the two-way drawing preference should be disabled by default.

Sure, you're right.

sketch wrote:I do miss the flashing, maybe it's just me! :D Could it be optional?

Ok, I'll try.

https://www.waze.com/editor/?zoom=5&lat ... 14&env=usa

Thanks!

You have two identical city names in that area:
38045: "Greater Manlius Area"
48105: "Greater Manlius Area"

So some of the segments are linked to city ID 38045, and some to 48105.

In that area you also have:
14696: "Syracuse"
53882: "Syracuse"
37530: "De Witt"
56539: "De Witt"
56562: "Dewitt" <- not reported, just noticed it

I can adjust the check so instead of "[correct letter case]" it will report "[identical names ID/ID]". Or shall we just ignore those duplicate city names?

Reminder: due to the false positives Validator does not highlight "Might be incorrect city names" anymore, so you have to scan an area to check city names.

sketch wrote:we're trying to remove any instance of "Greater * Area" from the map.

Let me know if I shall implement such a check for the US.

We already have the opposite checks implemented, for instance: "City name on Freeway" for AU, FR, GF, NC, PL, RE and "No city name on Freeway" for BN, MY, SG

So no need to argue. Just let me know and any check will be enabled/disabled/tailored for your country ;)

It was discussed here: page 7 and we decided to leave them. Let me know if I shall exclude roundabouts for you country.

TonyTorrent wrote:but when I zoom in they tend to disappear until I zoom out then back in.

Hover your mouse over any segment. If it is not selectable, it's a WME bug. I'm experiencing that too time to time with/without Validator enabled. I just move the map a bit and it's turn to normal.

TonyTorrent wrote:I also have the "Toolbox" installed, but if I run that while I'm running the validator I'm unable to make any changes on the map.

Can't reproduce :( Could you please give step-by-step instructions?
