The best solution for Mac that I was able to come up with a couple of years ago was download the Firefox browser. That's still working fine for me, but if someone can find a way of getting scripts and extensions to work on Safari that would be nice.

Re: [Script] WME Validator 0.8.2 (BETA) / 09.03.2014

Finding Validator so useful for finding newbie mistakes (and some of us old hands too!). This request is a big one and I'm not sure how you would do it without some exception testing. In London we use this type of construction to work the time based operation of our congestion charge. The idea is to make sure the client display shows it as a normal road as the clever stuff is all overlapped (blame iainhouse for this!). Of course Validator flags it up as overlapping - is it possible to prevent these types of segments being raised as issues?

It's not a problem to suppress the "Overlapping segments" either for lvl 6 locked segments or if one of the overlapping segments has a time based restriction.

Please note that Validator users have the "Exclude non-editable segments" option set by default, so low-level users do not see those errors since the segments have lvl 6 lock.

Please discuss the options I mentioned above with the other CMs and let me know shall I exclude lvl 6 locked segments, segments with restrictions, both or neither.

Thanks!


Thanks for this, unfortunately no great demand from the other UK CMs for this. I wonder if it would ever be useful to have the ability to select only certain lock levels for checking? I suppose not, given that an error is an error whoever caused it. Oh well.

I doubt it. I suspect that he's using a "CM" flag that is applied to a user's record by the Waze system.

To expand it to anyone else would have to be to "AM" or everyone... unless he did a username-by-username validation.

AFAIK, the SM designation is just a large AM area, plus some "how we do things" stuff... nothing in the database.

The advantage to highlighting is that you could set it correctly.

Service roads may well be streets or parking lot roads, depending on usage.

When (if?) the type disappears, it is likely the will all become one other type... And I'm going to bet it would be "street" as that is how service roads are routed now.

Mikenit: the problem is they don't do what people who use them expect them to.

They should route like parking lot roads, but they route like streets.

Berestovskyy: BellHouse fixed this issue (with nodes) fairly quickly in TB. Perhaps he might be able to do the same for Validator, if you're interested in help...

I'm having trouble thinking of a case where you'd want a red arrow on a two-segment node... Unless one of the segments is one-way.

Unless you feel there should be a 5 meter segment at the do not enter sign? But that becomes an unnecessary hack, and an added node just to make validator happy. (Maybe not just to appease validator, as it could also allow the client to display the blockade)


I don't think I'd call that a hack. It's unfortunate that we can't have segments shorter than 5m without fouling up the routing engine, but I'd say that is the truth.

You have a span that appears to be about 3m that is one-way traffic only. I realize this could be marked as a red arrow (and since you show this, I can see that being correct), or it could be a one-way segment. The one-way segment may cause errors, as jemay mentions, but that's no different from a map error for disobeying a turn restriction.
