Indeed, it appears Places are locked and cannot be added or updated yet.

Looks like we missed this in testing: when a Place is selected, the left sidebar still reads "One landmark selected" Could we get a quick update to fix that?

They are still there. Some browsers don't pick up on the changes right away. Cache and force reload usually does it.

They are working on unfreezing it.

Please see the Places wiki page for how each category should be mapped.
Nagamasa wrote:Also: I'm having trouble clicking on areas and points that are inside another area. It's not clicking-through. Work around is to edit the bigger area so i can "reach" inside.

Points are layered on top of Areas, but Area layer is not so easy. I am not sure if it is possible to make "completely overlapped" Areas always pop on top of the larger, but that's a good idea.

That is a great idea.

"Automotive Services" seems reasonable.

qwaletee wrote:2) Since there are so many types, and so many rules, it will be difficult to edit correctly, and even more difficult for area managers to check the work of others. Can I suggest that descriptions include the consensus guidance? Yes, that will be different for each country, but for now, since only the US and Canada have this feature, it should not be an enormous stress.

We've never had much luck getting Waze to implement messages within the editor, like something that pops up the first time someone uses a feature, or something pops up on the next 5 logins or something like that. We've been asking for it for years.

It would be nice to be able to show/hide them as an option.

This was requested as an option late in the beta cycle. Visible closed URs were added to the beta on Monday, two days before production release. We didn't have much time to provide feedback.

IMO, they look quite difference and aren't hard to distinguish.
