Had a HUGE area of SoCal peppered in the last 24 hours with dozens of URs closed without comment by one user.
Sent a PM, he swore up and down that he commented but forgot to send it when he closed them.
He closed a number as "solved" on roads that were not editable to him.
He claims he was following the instructions of an L5 in removing reports more than 7 days old... yet I found one he closed in 4 days.


These types issues should be addressed with your SM (if there is one) and/or your RC.

Yessir. I proposed a similar idea here. (I was under the impression at the time that AMs have the ability to reopen closed URs.)

Also please see my Proposal for Waze and let me know your thoughts.

You can really see that this has been an issue for some time based on the time stamp of the earliest post.

roadtechie wrote:Instead of restricting who can close a UR I believe anyone should be able to re-open a UR before the 10 day expiration window ends. The only bad thing I could possibly imagine would be if a R1 or possibly R2 decided to re-open a bunch of URs then re-close them trying to get the #'s on their stats. So, maybe make it where any R3 and up can re-open a UR if they believe it was closed improperly.

As a rank 2 editor, I pretty much agree with that comment. I think the ability the reopen URs would be beneficial. But, I'm not sure how you'd make it work with the points system. Would the first person to close get points (prevent people from re-opening and re-closing URs for points) or would the last person to close get points (prevent people from closing and then re-opening for points).

The only other thing I would suggest (and its been mentioned in this thread) is the ability to lock URs up to your level. I don't think it would do me much help, but I think it would help R3+. That could help prevent (1) URs getting closed prematurely and (2) a tug-of-war between someone wanting to close a UR and another person wanting that UR to remain open.

I don't get lost, I accidentally find new places.
