Oh, your're right. We ought to exclude parking lot roads. I'll fix it later...

You can use a custom check in Validator for that:
template: ${typeRank}:${elevation}
regexp: /^5:(?!-5)/

But in fact at the moment Validator does the opposite. In some countries it highlights walking trails with elevation -5 (check #105).

I did not hear about US Functional Classification, so I can't comment this, sorry.

krikketdoug wrote:3> Another check [...] Just mark them all places(points) instead of places(areas).

At the moment Validator does not support landmarks/places layer. There are some plans, but no promises, sorry :(

Validator saves options into the local storage, so there might be two reasons:
1) your browser does not allow to set local data
2) your browser automatically clears local data once you quit the browser

For Chrome browser click menu->Settings->Advanced->Content Settings and make appropriate changes.

In this particular case Validator missed a note reported by Toolbox. When I looked into the code, both Toolbox and Colour Highlight did not detect tile load properly and they both used a timer to periodically re-highlight segments.

So I had to implement a trick in Validator: once it detects the tile is loaded and ready, Validator dispatches an event to WMECH to force it to re-highlight the segments. It does not send anything to Toolbox though and I don't remember the reason. Probably the trick didn't work with Toolbox or smth :?


Generally speaking, those misses are plausible in Validator, esp. for the very long segments crossing the map view. So few month ago I send a message to Ohad asking a permission to use a low-level WME calls. It would allow Validator to scan the map few times faster and detect issues on the very long segments.

Now the validation functionality being implemented on the WME servers, I guess there is no reason to put much efforts here...

Confirmed, I'll try to fix it.

In Validator you can simply click search tab and then put a username(s) into "Updated by" field. The 'Updated by" field is available for country managers only.

krikketdoug wrote:Given that Street would only be used at the end of the street name, but Saint would be used after the directional (if any) and before the name, could Validator look for St in this context?

There is a forum thread with lots of useful custom checks for US: WME Validator localization for US

Added to the F.A.Q.:

Search for a specific username
Validator does support a search for a specific username. Click "search" tab and put a desired username(s) into the "Updated by" field.

For privacy reasons the feature is available for country managers only. Regular users and area managers have "Include only your edits" option instead.

The "Updated by" feature was implemented months ago and we agreed that it's for country managers only.

But I still get questions and requests to implement the feature or variables for custom checks, so I decided to add it to the F.A.Q.

Sorry for the misunderstanding.

Few answers:
SuperDave1426 wrote:is there any chance that Validator can be updated to no longer highlight roads with "Unconfirmed turn at node {A|B}" when node {A|B} is a dead end?

Thanks, will be fixed.

qwaletee wrote:Does the keystroke automatically update? Mine had stayed at Shift-W (interfering with Waze's new Shift-W for closing SV) until I manually changed it.

Validator does not save keyboard shortcuts, so I guess it's another script saved that.

bummerdude69 wrote:Is it possiable to identify the geometric nodes (not the end points, but the ones in the middle) that are at 180 degrees?

Thanks, added to my todo list.

mikenit wrote:I will like to see the type of road connected to the A junction?
Is there an variable that expands the type of conected segment?

There is no such a variable and it would be slow to implement and tricky to match. It's better to implement such checks inside the Validator using Javascript, not just regular expressions.

Taco909 wrote:Is there a way to add non-approved speed and RL cameras (or even all cameras) to the custom search feature?

Sorry, at the moment Validator analyze just road segments.

Olestas wrote:It is possible to search just for segments updated by User?

You can use a custom check to highlight all segments and then search for a specific username, i.e.
Template: 1
RegExp: /1/
