Wazeopedia

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

  1. 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.

  2. Adjust page width

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

  3. 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…

  4. 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.

  5. 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.
