Re: Improve Wiki Searches - List what you could not find

Tried searching for a state wiki page using the two letter abbreviation. [NY]/[ny], [CT]/[ct], maybe these (and other states) should offer a redirect or disambiguation page when appropriate.

I was searching for Dead Ends and started typing [Dead E...] and the auto fill in the search box produced Dead End Node which is not what I wanted. There was no link to the section I was looking for either, not that I'm sure there should have been one. But possibly a "Dead End" that populates in the search box and leads to the section in the JSG, that would have helped.

It would be nice to compile all those great video clips some of you have done into one page or more.

I can't seem to find this in wiki.

I've seen postings of youtube clips on how split or unsplit in the forum.

Now if there is a page that has all the URL links to this great videos, I'm sure it will help other new editors.

I can search for "Map Issue" for WME editors but can't seem to search for client users.

Maybe titled it "Map Issue Report Etiquette for Client users"?

Maybe include some apps to provide short cut keys to have some standard info such as:

"uta" = waze ID: u-turn allowed here.

"Ows" = one way street

"Nlt" = no left turn

The waze ID is optional but useful in case we need to PM them for more info.

Just an idea to get more constructive reports rather than those reports that don't have blank info.

I've googled and searched for Android version of the clients and compile it here for my own reference. However I have not downloaded and test whether it has any problems. As for IOS, I also can't seem to find it, yet.

I was trying to search for client downloads using key word "download" to search for previous version of the client when I came across that.

That entire page is nearly 2 years old. If you are only commenting on the beta section and every one agrees, we can cut it.
Yes, I'm commenting on the beta section.

In the meantime can we have a section where we can download the previous version of the client? I'm reading from the official feedback threads that there are some specific users having problems with the latest client version. Maybe it could be due to the mobile brand & model compatibility issue.

If there is a place for them to download the previous version that will be great. Otherwise they will still google it and download from somewhere.

Looks to be true. I started a new thread on that topic if anyone would like to contribute.
kentsmith9, the link you provided new thread on that topic does not exist.

I have not either. An editor asked me the other day when he received the 300 candie bonus. I had to search and found it for him.

This is what I found.
