One other note. The add-on info in https://wiki.waze.com/wiki/Waze_Map_Editor/Chat should really be shared with the add-ons wiki page via templating.

Nah, o construction sign needed. Everything is always under construction. This one will receive a little more than usual lifecycle tweaks, but it is fairly stable.

That makes me think it might be good to have a template like {{PrivateMessage}} called {{ForumLink}}. It would be a message box designed to be placed at the bottom of a page that is directly linked to a discussion page already. It would simplify getting users with questions or concerns into the right place in the forum.

isn't that the purpose of the talk page? but it's a good idea nonetheless

Maybe use the forum template on the talk page. I agree we could make better use of the talk pages.

[New Page] WME Chat

Postby vectorspace » Sat Apr 19, 2014 12:38 am

I think it's time to create a new page on WME Chat. It's been around long enough to see some good things and some challenges. I have a few ideas inspired by various editors and users of WME Chat. I'll just through out some ideas and perhaps we can create this soon and expand as needed.

WME Chat
  • Description/Background
  • Etiquette
    • Politeness issues
    • Language
    • Do not offer advice in other states of which you are not familiar, rules in other states may be different than your own (link)
  • How to use WME Chat
  • Beneficial Uses (describe each)
    • Rapid, real-time interaction while you edit
  • Drawbacks
    • Many voices can be confusing.
    • You may obtain wrong information, be careful who you trust.
  • Frustrations you may experience
    • You may not have a response to your request (reasons why)
    • Reloading your page will loose prior chat history
    • etc.
  • Alternatives to WME Chat
    • Text Chat (benefits, drawbacks)
      • Google Hangouts
      • etc.
    • Voice Chat (benefits, drawbacks)
      • Telephone
      • C3
    • etc.

To expand on my thought. I think there should be something like that in there just not the absolute "Do Not".


I completely agree with you... I was rushed when I wrote this. My thought was more like this:

"Be careful offering advice outside of your local area. Regional and state differences exists (show a link or two to the state resources or forums) and your advice may be inaccurate in that area. Outdated areal images may be deceiving if locals are editing new construction areas. Providing advice on simple or common topics should be fine."

Kent, PesachZ, Fredo-p,

Thanks for creating this base page. If you don't mind, I will add some content that you're free to edit, move, or delete as needed. If you prefer I provide ideas here for you to insert -- let me know.

I did some significant editing and content addition last night and finished up just now. I know that it has to be adjusted more and others may want to add additional items given what I have entered. Please make changes as needed. If you need more from me, please let me know.

By the way, this is a really good team editing effort on a Wiki page... I wish that happened in more places!

Thanks PsachZ,

You know, I have to remember too many markup languages to remember the internal link syntax and assumed some good soul would change it for me. I was right! These all look good.

I didn't see Hangouts Pro changes on the article. Did you forget to add that? What is it? I was going to add other items to that list, and will when I get a chance.

Fredo-p wrote:How do we fit in that, unlike the forums, the conversations are "private" and don't include the rest of the editing community? Therefor, non-private communications that could benefit other members who choose not to participate in other means of communication except the forums will be "left in the dark" so to speak.

It should be noted that many still find the forums as the go to place for communication in general and that not every one chooses to use social media or external chat options as a means to communicate.

One more thing, don't forget that Facebook is also being used for communications. Some groups have created their groups in Facebook vs Google+.


Really good points...

(1) The ethereal nature of WME Chat is already mentioned in the current article. That's an OK thing. I would suggest that it says something like "If useful insight is shared in WME Chat that does not exist in the Forum or Wiki, please help others by posting that insight in the Forum or suggest it be added to the Wiki for others to access as needed." Existing mention is in the Disadvantages section. I will add this there, but it could be added in other places in the article.

(2) I will add something about social media, please edit as needed.
