Part of this page is outdated as well.

Thank you for your help

I am a little confused from your initial post now. The JSG link is a good example of how to link to the Wiki to a specific page. Are you trying to link to a particular section of that document?

Yes, I gave this as a reference point. He/She had other question that I knew this page would help.

Or were you trying to find something specific on "end nodes" and could not find it yourself so you used that JSG as a substitute?

Initially, Yes. I wanted to pin point the "end node", But, I believe that is covered as dead end.

Did you have "end node" as your search and that turned up lots of seemingly unrelated pages in other languages?

Yes, I got multiple answers and there were many with other languages as well.

Well, I didn't get exactly what I wanted but I got all the other languages as well.

No to your first question, but you can get to (or create a direct link to) a specific page if you need. So to answer this better, can you tell me what link in the Wiki you sent the user, or did you just say "search for *end nodes*?"


I gave this link: http://www.waze.com/wiki/index.php/Junction_Style_Guide
It did cover (little) end node and deleting an extra node.

Searching for "toll" or "toll road" does not return the toll roads as a page title match or a page text match. However, searching for "toll roads" takes you directly to toll road section of the best map editing practice page.

Shouldn't the best editing practices page at least show up as a match for the first two searches?

Eye144, I assume you are speaking about the app itself and how to get the app to go to sleep in the background after reaching your destination.

The Wiki is mostly about the Waze Map Editor operation, with little about the app itself.

Better yet, why not link the videos into places in the Wiki that relate to the videos?

I'm sorry, but I am not sure if I follow the question in the long version. ;)

In the future it helps to be specific when I change multiple pages and you want me to fix something. ;)

I found the reference you mentioned in the FAQ. I had included every element of locks in the body of the FAQ already, so I just deleted the final unnecessary sentence.
