Wazeopedia

Hi there, this forum is for ideas to improve Wazeopedia – Waze’s wiki platform that for map editors and by map editors.

  1. Remove country/ from URL

    The pages that were transferred from the old Wiki have the same path names that they had before, such as United_Kingdom/Cities, which is a little redundant given that it's in the subset of UK pages - it would be better if this page was simply named Cities. Is it up to us to rearrange the transferred pages now? Perhaps it would have been better to have been able to specify a new path in the Transfer Package.

    The same issue is for Czech pages. It should be nice to change Czech/Example pages to Example ones.

  2. Use the Translate Extension

    So far the proposed method for translations is to have each language's community do all the translations manually.

    In the Spanish speaking countries we have made multiple attempts at translating the content from the original english versions. However, we have yet to complete that process because manual translation is very time consuming and noticing changes in the originals is difficult.

    The Translate extension (https://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Extension:Translate) is a toll designed specifically to help make translations easy and always based on the original, which on Wazopedia would be english.

  3. The Wazopedia Favicon should be the large glasses wazer

    The Wazopedia Favicon should be the large glasses wazer and not the standard Wazer. This will improve selecting the correct browser tab when multiple tabs are open at the same time.

  4. Adjust page width

    The pages are too wide and do no adjust to display on my 1050x1680 and 1880x1920 monitors in portrait orientation.

  5. Maintain legacy wiki indefinitely, with soft redirects to replacement content, so as not to lose external links.

    The current plan is to shut down the legacy wiki. Existing external links will then rot. Some of those links may be important for various reasons.

    A better solution would be to maintain it in read-only mode indefinitely, with soft redirects to the replacement content on Wazeopedia. This will allow users who hit a rotted link to see that the the link is old and pointing to old information, while at the same time having the opportunity to click through to more current content on that topic. There is little cost in doing this. Technical wiki masters could be left…

  6. Updating points on a daily basis (?)

    I've waited over a week for my points to be updated, and would like to see my points updated as close to daily as possible.

  7. install/activate the editing toolbar like we had on the old wiki, or a better one

    The current editing toolbar on the wazeopedia has less functionality than the toolbar in the old wiki.

  8. Create alerts using voice command

    The new version allows voice command for setting destinations, but I can't find a way to create an alert (Police, Constructions, Object on road, etc.) with a voice command. Often I don't report something because I'm in heavy traffic and don't feel safe taking my eyes off the road to crate an alert manually.

    If this feature exists please let me know how to activate it, and consider making it more obvious. If it doesn't, please consider implementing it. It shouldn't be too difficult, since Waze can already listen for voice commands. A good format might be:

    "Alert - Police…

  10. Explain Global vs country pages

    If a newbie to wiki comes to the main page, how would s/he know what is the difference between global pages and local pages? Concerning the editing part, perhaps it should state here: https://wazeopedia.waze.com/wiki/Global/index.php?title=Improve_and_edit_the_maps&action=edit&redlink=1 that the info in global pages accounts for Waze around the world, and that countries can have specific guidelines/apllications etc.

  11. Duplicate "Check the server status" link on Main Page

    Each page appears to have a header link to check the sever status and major service issues. Then the main page has its own duplicate link for the same thing (the only difference seems to be that the global link opens the status page in its own tab while the main page link does not).

  13. Country list issues

    The country dropdown is labeled "choose a country," which is a little confusing when the first entry is "global." In addition, some of the domains are going to be multi-country, and there are some countries that will have two versions (for two different languages - Canada, Belgium, for example).

    I suggest using a different word that is compatible with all entry types in the list. "Select a Waze editing Wiki" would make sense.

    Also, the dropdown in redundant to the country list on the right, except that they are not identical. Decide on one or the other, and make it…

  14. Smaller header

    I love white space - but not when it makes the page unwieldy. The current header is too large. Much of the vertical white space could be compressed.

    In addition, there are many layers in the header: Waze header ... language/user info ... wiki page mode bar ... server status banner ... page title. Some of these could be folded into combined layers, further reducing the overall throw of the header.

  15. Finding it impossible to block/remove someone despite what instructions say. Need this feature for safety ASAP.

    An ex keeps trying to friend me. His contact is repeated and unwelcome and I keep trying to block/remove him according to the instructions and it doesn't work as the instructions say it should. If this is user error please tell me! Very frustrated that this isn't easier.

  16. Familiar Route Mode

    Familiar route mode that doesn't give turn-by-turn instructions except when there is trouble ahead. For instance, if Waze knows I'm going home, and there are three ways I use to get there, it tells me which one to use and then only "speaks" if there is a problem along the way. If things are bad along all three routes, it could suggest an alternate, "unfamiliar" route.

  17. VOCES CUSTOMIZADAS

    Permitir colocar los mp3 con las voces personalizadas. La voz en CATALAN es tan mala que se hace insoportable. Me hice mis propias voces pero con Android Marshmallow ha desaparecido la carpeta WAZE/Sound donde colocaba los ficheros. Sniff

  18. Мinimalist icons for residential houses

    I really liked the realization of icons "work / home" on the map. What if you add on the same type of houses icons. But that they are transparent by default, and in the preparation of the route at the end point in a certain radius around the point of arrival would be displayed. Thus it would be possible to follow in more detail to your destination.

  19. Fix the Server Error

    We almost receive the alert like wait 30 seconds, or sometimes while pre visualizing thing the page doesn't load complete or get the error again. This is also happening while loading pages and while saving pages.

    Please fix this.

  20. Mention editor levels on global Main Page

    The global Main Page does not mention editor levels that exist in WME. On
    https://wazeopedia.waze.com/wiki/Global/FAQ I see a link to "editing rank" (https://wazeopedia.waze.com/wiki/Global/Your_Rank_and_Points#Waze_Map_Editing_Ranks). Why the wiki calls it "editor rank" while WME says I am Level 1/2/3 Editor? I find it confusing.
