Allo Allo kpouer

Hope you enjoyed your visit to Ireland. I've just had a good laugh at your report, which might be interpreted to the more tender as insulting - making a joke of the issue and just being a smart-ass.

You know people in glass houses shouldn't throw stones. I've looked at segment creations and editing you've conducted while you were in Ireland. It is most unfortunate you did not comply with the basics of good editing in that you did not properly name any new segments you created or adhere to good editing practice, leaving the segments un-named. What elevation are you at? Surely you know that you should never mark both City and Street as none or do you intend to finish out those edits I speak of, some of which are noted below?

Out of courtesy to you I would like to finish out the edits in question for the benefit of our Waze users in Ireland. I do recall that I had properly completed these segments a year ago or more and somebody must have deleted them.

Sincerely,

Arthur.

I'm sorry I did not follow the rules because in the beginning because I was not aware of them, when I found your rules I stopped editing in Ireland.

Anyway I still think this rule is not good for several reasons:

The first reason is that unnamed roads remains red to detect beginners editors easily. That's what Waze always said, maybe it changed. Previously such roads were not routable or even visible on the map.
The second reason is that I still do not understand why not using the "no name" checkbox, it is made for that.
If the idea is to detect roads that have no names, some scripts do that in a better way.
The other problem if unnammed road is that you cannot know the type of road so you cannot organize the routing.

Also among the roads I edited a lot of them were not connected at all. And I don't understand what deleted segments you are talking about.

I was also not insulting anybody with that road that is at level 28, I don't think it is a mistake of an editor but a bug in WME.

I believe it is known. If I remember right, it is an old issue from the Cartouche days, where the only way to remove a node was to bridge two segments over or under it. If you only bridged "over", the elevation of the segment would go up by one every time; if you were removing 29 driveways, eventually you would get to elevation 28. But WME can only display elevations between -5 and 9, so it is not shown here, and Validator reports it as "out of range elevation".
