I don't like to impose on other editors, in particular newer editors who are just getting involved but . . . one of the features of the feed that has been very much wanted by the global community is notification of PMs.

I currently have 22 unread PMs in my Outbox, mostly trying to contact editors who have made a mistake in their editing and to help them learn and rectify the problem. Several time a year in the UK we have to block an editor who is damaging the map to try and force contact: this is an unpleasant thing to do and is likely to scare them away. With PM notifications now showing up in WME, it will be much easier to contact them.

I'm not saying you shouldn't have the ability to hide PM notifications at all, although that may be appropriate. I can think of several options:
  • Don't allow PM notifications to be filtered at all
  • Only allow recent PMs to be filtered - say anything over 1 week old still appears in the list
  • Make the filtering less easy - say you have to type a passphrase into a box to filter PMs
  • Have PM filtering automatically turn off once a week
  • Only allow senior editors (L3+ or L4+) to filter PM notifications
  • Provide some other warning when there are PMs. Perhaps you could use some highlighting on the "Feed Filter Controls" text or the "Load More" button, say a red or flashing background?
  • Don't filter PMs from senior editors (if that's even possible)

Re road closure cloning - is it possible to have the clone "auto-increment"?

It seems to me that the major use-case for this will be daily repeating closures with dates A-A (for a daytime closure) or A-(A+1) (for night-time). So adding 1 day to each date in the cloned closure would be the most useful option.

This would help greatly with finding trouble spots which have had a recent change, but might not be easily noticed for one reason or another. It would be really swell to be able to pan the map at zoom 0 and see issues like these which have popped up. ;)


Try Livemap UR (LMUR) script, also by Twister-UK. That will show all URs on the livemap and will also cluster them to show a count - sounds ideal for what you're asking. :)

I might have been wrong! I'm sure MPs weren't centring earlier, but they are now. :oops: So, yes, I'd be happy to see that behaviour squashed as well.

The prevent auto-centring is also affecting Map problems, which saves me asking for that. :)

However, could we have 'Replace "Next update request" button' working for MPs as well as URs please?

Additional information. In the above example, the closed MP was first in the stack. I've now found another pair where the open MP is first in the stack - and that one always gets connected.

I've also noticed that, if I have already got the un-shifted MP open, then hovering over the unstacked MP changes the pop-up with the information, but clicking on it has no effect.

Just guessing, but this might be something to do with the new behaviour of MPs where selecting one automatically centres it on the screen.

I'm seeing a possible problem with the feature to unstack URs/MPs.

There are 2 MPs here - one closed "irrelevant data" and one open. When I hover over them, they unstack properly but, whichever one I click on, I get the closed one selected.

The open one can also be closed when you're done looking - I left it open to make the problem easier to demonstrate.

Nothing at all. These "special" notes are in no way special to Waze at all. I invented the UK Roadworks system and we started tagging all roadworks URs with [ROADWORK]. Twister-UK then did the fantastic job of giving them a different icon via URO.

When HQ declared that editors should no longer use railroads for notes, and it became clear they weren't going to provide something suitable, the system of tagged URs was simply extended to cover other tags.

Of course, if the UR is closed then (a) the person who raised it & anyone following it will be notified and (b) it stays on the map for a while and can be easily replaced.

When we finally got conversations on URs, I remember there were a lot of reports of them being closed by new editors who shouldn't have done so. I was ust thinking last night that the incidence of this is way down on what it used to be. Maybe they're learning? :roll:

Same here for me - URO+ disappeared.

This error shows up in the console:

I'd feel quite proud if you did. :D I'm sure Twister-UK could filter [CONSTRUCTION] as well. Mind you, we have to put up with Freeways and Parking Lots, so turnabout is fair play. :lol:

It's worked so well it was the basis for my proposal for a new type of editor comment </shameless plug>. Of course, HQ say they're working on something else - I'm sure that will be here soon. ;)
