Any special URs should be closed only after the conditions they describe expired, sometimes indefinitely. A [CLOSURE] or [EVENT] UR for example can safely be closed say a week after the closure expires, if there is no continuing conversation.

I should have been more specific.

I meant from the Waze side of things... is there anything to prevent an L1 on a "7 day rule" closing spree from closing them?

EDIT like this one. Unfortunately you need edit privileges in an area to see the URs, so you may not be able to see this.

Ya, can't see it.

Interesting... what is the closure policy on [NOTE]?

Any special URs should be closed only after the conditions they describe expired, sometimes indefinitely. A [CLOSURE] or [EVENT] UR for example can safely be closed say a week after the closure expires, if there is no continuing conversation.

[CONSTRUCTION] and [ROADWORKS] Should remain until they no longer provide helpful info. Say a UR was left to alert editors that roads have changed here from the sat view. It could be closed after the sat view images updated.

Some [NOTE]s describe permanent obscurities of the map, and should ONLY be closed when the no longer apply, usually by the reporter them self. Or someone of sufficient rank and skill to understand the original issue, and that it no longer applies.

This being said, apart from closures and events I wouldn't close any other special URs without a comment to the original reporter and 7 day wait.

*The above is my own opinion, and does necessarily represent the community consensus view, or Waze as a whole.

Call me a dummy, but how are some of these, such as [NOTE] left on the map? I don't see a way to do it in the app, WME, or livemap.

Can these, such as note, be configured (and I know this is a WME issue, not URO) so they can not be closed by a lower ranking editor? I don't think I've ever seen a UR tagged as a note.

Already on the to-do list :)

Not sure if I've seen that actually. Great idea.

Agreed 100%. I would almost say that they shouldn't even be able to be disabled, but since everything is able to be disabled I won't go that far. But it should certainly be a standard feature.
