I'm really pleased to hear you're working on Scotland. There are 5 AMs for a land area 50x London. Keeping up with all the URs and PURs is hard enough; checking the speed cameras and adding all the 20mph limits have gone on the back burner.

* april - we finaly agreed on AM self-management in Slovakia and with new segment-lock system I finally asked for L4 upgrade
* july - meetup of local leaders wich lasted till late night, together with other local leaders (most active editors) we discussed and then made segment re-categorization of our capital and several other topics/editing rules
* october - L4 area lock of few cities due to repetitive mistakes together with agreeing on exeptions for granting L4 to trusted editors. which resulted into having more than doubled number of L4s.
* december - when I got Xmas present - promotion to L5 from our coordinator ;)

- less map updates, significantly more URs solved - map in Slovakia is pretty mature, numbers of users are growing nicely, fine tuning is needed... the UR+MP Tracking script is amazing. many URs are related to setting correct speedlimits, what is also cause for high number of solved URs

- nice year with Waze, several very nice wazewins, bit more map updates compared to previous year (implementing speed limits). looking forward for the next year!
my 6th year with Waze is over - so little recap:

* january - started CCP discussions with our Ministry of Transportation (they build new centralized information system and are able to provide valuable data about planned closures or even feed with snowplows positions)
* march - Central & Eastern Europe Meetup in Prague
* april - Czech and Slovak local meetup in Valtice, Czech Republic
* october - Global champs meetup 2017 in Tel Aviv
* november - Guri and myself managed 4 new broadcasting partners in Slovakia - Trnavske radio, Radio Jemne, Radio Vlna & (my favorite) Radio Antena Rock
* november - I was presenting Waze Ads @ Trend Online Academy conference
* december - as promised during CEE Meetup, after several follow-up emails, we finally get rid of generated "range House numbers" in Slovakia (thanks to Daliah)

and some plans for the 2018:
* record the localized male voice prompts, with help of our broadcasting partners (let FB fans choose who it will be)
* organize local CZ&SK meetup in May
* finally finish CCP on-boarding with our Ministry of Transportation (things are going extremely slow so far, several personal changes on their side, it's taking long months to get their Lawyers' department to make their mind, but we are slowly advancing. At least Adam confirmed that their feed format is OK for processing at Waze's side)

with little less time spent on waze, a bit more active on forum than in WME in comparision with last year, oscilating around rank of #200 most of the year...
* march - waze stickers giveaway
* april - we finaly agreed on AM self-management in Slovakia and with new segment-lock system I finally asked for L4 upgrade
* july - meetup of local leaders wich lasted till late night, together with other local leaders (most active editors) we discussed and then made segment re-categorization of our capital and several other topics/editing rules
* october - L4 area lock of few cities due to repetitive mistakes together with agreeing on exeptions for granting L4 to trusted editors. which resulted into having more than doubled number of L4s.
* december - when I got Xmas present - promotion to L5 from our coordinator ;)

- less map updates, significantly more URs solved - map in Slovakia is pretty mature, numbers of users are growing nicely, fine tuning is needed... the UR+MP Tracking script is amazing. many URs are related to setting correct speedlimits, what is also cause for high number of solved URs

------------

and some plans for the 2018:
* record the localized male voice prompts, with help of our broadcasting partners (let FB fans choose who it will be)
* organize local CZ&SK meetup in May
* finally finish CCP on-boarding with our Ministry of Transportation (things are going extremely slow so far, several personal changes on their side, it's taking long months to get their Lawyers' department to make their mind, but we are slowly advancing. At least Adam confirmed that their feed format is OK for processing at Waze's side)
7 full years now.

many changes in Waze in last 12 months:
* february - new voice prompts alpha version recorded with popular radio host Ivan "Bindo" Bindas. unfortunatelly we were unable to release it yet (few prompts are not recorded in good quality and we haven't managed 2nd round of recording)
* april - local CZ+SK meetup at Slovakia Ring - great fun and also lot of waze stuff discussed and decided
* july - CEE Regional meetup in Bucharest
* august - had luck to take part on Waze on CarPlay alpha testing phase
* september - I presented Waze & Carpool future at conference Route to the future
* october - Betalization meetup in Berlin (originally I had not planned to attend, but...)
* october - Waze finally supports long distance routing (and the waiting is over after many years)
* november - got into betatesting of new Czech TTS (can't wait for the Slovak one, hopefully soon)
* december - implementation of highway vignettes in many European countries. (took half a year to coordinate, agree and implement and still got some issues, but finally it's here)
