I posted a separate thread to create that content in the best map editing practices, and added it to my states page.

Traffic Locks are hard to find, partially because the [[Lock (disambiguation)]] lists locked segments, but that section linked to doesn't exist. There's a small section at the end which links to editing restrictions, but that page doesn't mention traffic locks either.

I added traffic locks to the disamb page, and created two redirect pages to it "Auto lock" and "Auto locks".

I didn't fix the locked segments link or the link https://wiki.waze.com/wiki/Locked_segme ... ed_road.3F on the locked segment redirect page and the corresponding FAQ, because I'm not entirely sure where they should link to. Perhaps they need to link directly to the editing restrictions page, and have that page updated with the missing information.

Fixed the DAB and FAQ pages.

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.

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

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

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?

Is there a way to limit to search just to the language I'm searching?
For example, I wanted to help an editor and give a particular wiki page that explains "end nodes"
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.

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.
