I can see value in this. Something similar to what WMECH does -- segments locked to your rank or lower are accented in color, segments locked above your rank are accented in black. For validator, maybe the "halo" could be outlined in either bright pink or black depending on the above? If you really want to get crazy, you could vary the shade of pink based on the lock level - higher the lock the brighter the pink? just some ideas...

but in the end I definitely want to see validator show me issues with locked segments, even if they're above my rank. :)

I noticed that street names that begin with numbers (i.e. 8th Steet) are being flagged with the following message: #170 The street name starts with a lowercase word.

I would also exclude the word "to" from the lower case filter selection as shown here

Hi berestovskyy,

I'm getting a lot of false positives in the US for rule "#170 'Lowercase street name' (merged #93, #94)" since v0.9.5.

Permalink: https://www.waze.com/editor/?zoom=5&lat ... 89&env=usa

The false positives come in the form of "25th St" or "A St" and the likes. I appreciate you looking into it.

Another false positive type in the form of "W U pass St" here: https://www.waze.com/editor/?zoom=7&lat ... ts=7067915

Thanks,
James

Agreed. I find that the top level editors are busy fixing major infrastructure issues... It's up to us lower level editors to scour the maps looking for everything they don't have time to search for. I frequently find issues with rank 5/6 segments as the validator gets better updates. I post them to the unlock forum, and the CMs fix it when they have time. Good system.

The rank lock system is an invaluable tool to prevent damage to the critical infrastructure, and ignoring locked segments makes the incorrect assumption that the last editor was perfect in their changes :)

That's how it was, by default. Maybe move the "exclude non editable" into the settings (where the sound setting is)

Kent, it's always available under Settings->About->Available checks. If you click it over the US, Validator will show enabled/disabled checks for US. And I just added a red link to the OP ;)

No problem, I guess we need to discuss it.

Every rule has an exception. Despite I'm doing my best to avoid false positives, they are there and they always will be. So IMO we need to agree on how do we mark those false positives on the map, so other editors do not try to fix them just because Validator says so.

For instance, few days ago Sketch posted here a link to the area where the right turns on two-way roads are disabled: permalink

So the current proposal is to simply lock those exceptions and do not report issues to the low-level users. I also significantly improves Validator performance for low-level users on low zoom levels when there are lots of locked freeway/highway segments.

Let me know if anyone has a better idea.


08.04.2014 v0.9.6:
- Fixed #170 'Lowercase street name' (but not for "U turn" I guess :lol:)
- New for US #106 'No state name selected'
- Disabled skips of locked segment

They were excluded by default with "Exclude non-editable segments". Now the locked segments are excluded always.


Excuse me, but I think that this is a problem!
I'm checking a wide area and many segments are locked with 4th or 5th level to prevent tampering...
but segments are wrong.
Thanks to Validator I request the unlock and fix all problems.
The previous option, "Exclude non-editable segments" is the best one, I think.
Please, our maps are full of problems. We all have to fix them.
Don't limit us, please. :?
