Frankly I'm happy with the current list of checks, because it takes me no time to update the list. I just click Settings->About->Available checks and copy the list into my forum post.

Understood. Is there any chance to have the tool resort the list into some order (numeric, alphabetical, type, etc)? Or is it in one now and I don't recognize it? :D

Also understood. The user community controls the Wiki, so we can do whatever makes the most sense if the people doing the work have time. :mrgreen:

We can go further and check if every word in the street name starts with a capital letter. But at the moment #94 is checking just the beginning of the street name.


Just a caution here. In the process of implementing this, be sure to still allow the use of capital letters within a word. As just one example, I have a local street named and signed "ProMedia Parkway" with no space between the two word parts with capital letters.

I like the idea, will be implemented in some of the future versions.

Sorry, I didn't get the idea. You mean there are drivable roads with certain names which should never be connected to another drivable road?

What do we think about moving much of the content in the various posts like Error Check List into the Wiki. We could put this list into a sortable table with the columns:
  • Number
  • Name
  • Description
  • Category (warnings, errors, etc.)
  • Countries

I found a Wiki module we could add that allows filtering http://community.wikia.com/wiki/User_bl ... ong_Tables, but it does not allow selective filtering (only filters by entire cell contents, not partial). Maybe there is something else out there we can use. Then we could filter the description field for "Turns" to see anything related to turns, etc.

According to wiki:
When a road is under long-term construction, but is not closed, add "(Construction Zone)"

So I'm not sure if Validator should suppress issues at the "not closed" road :?

A report for obsolete CONST ZN markers will be added.

Oh, of course, I wouldn't wanna suppress other issues there. I think having "Construction Zone" as a note, though, could alert editors to construction projects which may have been completed.

At the moment all the filters run afterwards the scan. Validator scans and collects all of the issues. Then you click "Show report" and Validator applies the filters and shows the report.

This street match option you suggested would be applied during the scan and once it changed you would need to rescan the area. So this option does not fit well with the existing filter options :(

Understood, thanks anyway! :D

Is it possible to get a report when roads are connected to driveable roads with a specific streetname?

In this case the following:
busbaan
spoorlijn
tram
metro

Those should never be connected to driveable segments.

Could that either be country-specific or provide the option to enable only certain street names? We have a "Metro Parkway" that is the official name and is a major highway.

Well I wish we could get some further guidance on what the developers intend for us to use walking trails for.

I changed it to a Walking Trail. I have been under the assumption that ONLY Street could House Numbers.

Thanks.

Opinions please:
https://www.waze.com/editor/?zoom=8&lat ... s=16841710

Would anyone edit this any differently? Note that street DOES have house numbers, and is NOT drive-able.

Of course Validator reports this with "No Inward" and "No Outward" connectivity. How else could Validator handle this?
