A button for reporting irrelevant in a popup when selecting something directly on map
When there is reported something like Police for example, that is not there anymore, there are only two things that can be done. Searching for the particular report in the list or adding a comment. Any of these are dangerous while driving.
When selecting a report icon on map, there is a popup where is a button for comment and a button for Thanks. It would be great to pur there a thumbs down button or something like that for reporting irrelevant easily.
Totally agree - was just going to ask for this too. Add the ability to vote down a report rather than leave it on the map for extended periods of time. For example, if you go past a location with a reported speed trap, but there is definitely no speed trap there, you should be able to relay that to other users behind you. For example, someone in the Boston area was reporting a road sign with a K-band transmitter as a "speed trap" every morning even though there was no actual speed trap there.
One way to implement this enhancement would be to have "negative" votes reduce the expiration time of notifications. For example, let's say a speed trap report starts with a 1 hour expiration, and when the next user drives by, a dialog comes up and says "Speed trap reported - is there still a speed trap here - yes or no?"
If the user clicks "Yes", then add 15 minutes to the expiration. If the user clicks "No", then reduce the expiration by half an hour (or remove it). If the user doesn't click anything, then maybe reduce it by 15 minutes, although not sure on that last one - if you're on a motorcycle like me you won't be clicking anything! :-)
I think this kind of feedback will greatly increase the accuracy of reports, and will also make Waze more interactive!
