Please note the 'Walking Trail instead of a Railroad' at the moment is enabled for the Poland only.
Let me know if the check should be enabled for other countries.

UPD: 'Railroad used for comments' enabled for all countries.

Railroads are not currently displayed in the client. That's why editors in some areas started marking railroads as "walking trails", so they'd be displayed in the client. But now we are told by staff that railroads will soon be displayed in the client, so all those -5 walking trails should be changed to railroads. Did I leave some of that out?

As a matter of editor policy, all non-drivable road types (including railroads, runways, boardwalks, stairs, and walking trails) have elevation set to -5 per established convention. -5 indicates that the segment is not to be attached to the drivable roadways "to prevent false system reporting that think the roads should be connected.".

I don't know of this convention, other than with railroads. Perhaps it is not so widespread as you think. In my area, pedestrian boardwalks are marked using normal elevation rules.

Regardless, my quote is from the wiki.

Where?

Road Types (USA) does not mention elevation for non-drivable roads other than (1) it must be different from any road it crosses, and (2) it should be -5 for railroads.

Yes, I quoted from the Railroad section. Of course, -5 is guaranteed to be different from any road it crosses.

OK, and I don't doubt that it isn't guaranteed. But that doesn't mean it's the rule. You're extrapolating a new rule from two existing rules. "Set every undrivable road to a different level than every road it crosses" and "set every railroad to -5" do not combine to mean "set every undrivable road to -5", because not every undrivable road is a railroad.

Walking trails at elevation -5 to represent railroads, on the other hand, was a rule (in some places), and is now an obsolete rule. Hence the check (which should be limited to some places).

Re: [Script] WME Validator 0.6.1 (BETA) / 05.02.2014

05.02.2014 v0.6.1:
- NEW search option to include/exclude certain checks:
Reported as (see below for the details)
- ENABLED for CZ 'Walking Trail instead of a Railroad'
- fixed few bugs with new and deleted segments

New search tab:
Updated since - highlight/report segments which were modified since a specific date only.

City name - this field supports lists (city1, city2), wildcards (*) and negation (!)
Examples:
Greater * Area
!Paris, * - will match any city but Paris
r*, s* - will match any city starting with letter r or s

New! Reported as - filter for reported issues. This field supports lists, wildcards and negation and matches severities, check titles and check IDs.
Examples:
error - to highlight/report just errors
New road - to highlight/report just segments reported as "New roads"
!40, * - do not highlight/report check #40 (Soft turns on drivable road)
!soft turns*, * - do not highlight/report checks starting with 'soft turns'
36, 37 - to highlight/report just checks #36 and #37 (unneeded node A/B)
*roundabout* - to highlight/report checks with "roundabout" in the title

Plans
I'd like to make Validator more stable, so no new features for some time. But I will still enable/disable checks on your request, accept translations, exceptions etc.

Please report bugs, false positives (with permalinks), typos etc.

Thanks!

Sure, but different countries have different guidelines. Sorry, I have no clue where you are from :?

At the moment I'd like to see bug reports more than ever :mrgreen:
