  3. Upgrade servers to support HTTP2/ SPDY - Faster load times

    Waze.com should switch on HTTP2/SPDY support.

    It provides faster page loads - Chrome supports it.

    Here is the very simple guide to get this going fast. https://bjornjohansen.no/enabling-spdy-nginx

    https://spdycheck.org/#www.waze.com - To see the results of spdy check on Waze.com

    chrome://net-internals/#spdy see what pages are loading over http2 in chrome. (currently none from waze.com)(most from maps.google.com)

    This is captured log of http2 traffic that maps.google.com was using, and also when it was swapped to earth view. http://puu.sh/kq2zl.png

    This is a simple and inevitable change that will help map editors with…

  4. Created an web app that helps you never get a parking ticket again. Your location queries database and puts parking info on phone screen.

    About this project Nobody wants a parking ticket, or worse – finding out their car has been towed. The no park ticket app will ensure that never happens to you again, or anyone else. Why give your hard earned money to parking cops? No more! The app and database has been created and the domain purchased. The app lets you know the parking limits and street sweeping times in real time on your mobile phone or tablet.

  5. Edit Favorites

    Allow users to edit 'favorite' locations after adding them, so that users can update addresses or rename 'favorites'. That way, when friends move, for example, users can edit the 'favorite', instead of having to delete it and re-add it completely.

  9. Optar pelo Rodizio deveria ser mais pratico ativar ou não

    Se ativou com a placa o aviso de rota no dia de rodizio, se estiver num carro de amigo, não tem a opção escolher rota sem rodizio, já aconteceu comigo e só mudando a placa deu certo, coisa que também não é de fácil acesso para alterar.

  11. Comments

    Allow permanent comments to be attached to objects (roads, places) i the map editor to pass information to Future Editors to understand why something was done in a certain way, or assumptions made by the editor when a edit is done.

  12. Advertisment Error Handling

    Please change Paid Advertisement Handling to have them appear on the Map Editor after they have appeared and allow Editors to submit update requests that Advertisers need to acknowledge. The existing Google forms that are posted in the forum are worthless. I have submitted multiple forms for Kroger Ad issues around greater Columbus, Ohio that do not appear to have any affect. (Also, I have never received feedback on a report filed.) A month later another Ad shows up with the store still located 3 blocks away from its actual location. If the Ad Place appeared in the Editor and…

  13. Put 2 fields in editor. 1 for TTS and the other for display.

    This will make the display correct. While also letting the TTS read the words right. There was a time when the editors had to cheat the display so that the TTS would read right. It was hard to comprehend the display.

  16. New editors contact

    Frequently, all we've found bad editions, make it by new and inexperienced editors.

    In Spanish Community we send a PM to those editors, showing what they are making bad, inviting them to know the Wiki and forum or offering them our help.
    Usually this editors don't know about the existence of Wiki neither forums and therefore never read our messages, continuing with his bad and useless work or leave to edit because never see his work in the maps.
    I think would be an interesting tool if when we open WME, would appear a message advertising that they have a…
