I think searches like this should probably redirect to https://wiki.waze.com/wiki/Incorrect_edits, a very useful document. I have added "common editing mistakes" as a redirect to https://wiki.waze.com/wiki/Incorrect_edits because I simply cannot remember to search for incorrect edits. That's just me. :)

There is nothing currently in the Wiki on CMs, but I did bring it up in this thread.
I have been on the new State template for over a month now and have done little else. Once the State template is completed and launched I plan to touch on this one.

Got one that I couldn't find. Base Node. Anyone know where that would go in the wiki?

Countries are welcome to say they follow the guidelines of other countries and link to them with a note on those pages saying it also covers them.

I built a page for Regional Coordinators and started a discussion in this thread if anyone wants to contribute to the conversation.

If it doesn't exist in the wiki, it should be put there, because it would hopefully prevent novice editors from making improper splits. It should also emphasize to never split a road without experienced (AM+) help/advice

I don't believe anyone has created that content. And yes that would be a great place to put it. Did you want to give it a shot?

It would be best explained in a short video, which I don't have the facilities to create. If anyone else could do it it would be great.

I would recommend a base page with the titles of the roles and then an index to subpages for each country to link to their specific guidelines.
