  1. Lane closures

    The possibility for us editors to close lanes on for example highways.

    We'd indicate which lane is closed and a RoadShield like box would appear showing arrows so that users can change lanes early to the non close ones.

  2. Update the Spelling for Smothers Theatre on Waze

    The title of this location is not spelled Theater, instead Pepperdine University spells it Theatre. Please correct this on Waze.

  3. Avoid school zones

    We need to be able to choose to avoid school zones. Waze takes me through several school zones on my way home. When you don't know the area, you don't know how to go around them. This is really frustrating. The speed slows down to 20 in most zones around here.

  6. modify navigation to Bombo Headland and Quarry

    After recently speaking to sightseers looking for Bombo Headland while walking from Darien av I asked them what navigation tool they use. The name Waze came up. Sightseers navigating with Waze to Bombo Headland and/or Quarry are taken into Darien avenue, a residential street. I have recently successfully modified Google maps to direct navigation to the carpark at Bombo Beach which is the intended direction from Kiama council and is closer to these wonderful sightseeing places. Please see example here:- http://ow.ly/MBgg50DFXBp

  8. Restricted areas: L5 users can restrict Rank 6 segments

    With restricted areas, a level 5 (or Level X user depending on what the final level will be when released in production/country setting) could currently add a restriction to a level 6 segment.

    Steps: find a rank 6 segment, draw an area on it => The segment is restricted.

    This may be a WAD (similar to closures for people who have closure permissions), but it's still risky and lowers the protection of the rank system. If the user deletes the area restriction right after the map update, the problem cannot be identified without staff intervention.

  9. Implement reCAPTCHA v3

    With the recent release of version 3 of reCAPTCHA (the thing you may get to see when you log in and the system suspects you may be a bot instead of a user), it would be a great idea to upgrade to the latest version. We've had several users who have had to fill in the CAPTCHA protection every time for some weird reason (I suspect someone in their neighbourhood is to blame), which could be alleviated with the new system. The system now gives you a score between 0 and 1 to gauge how trustworthy the request is. That…

  10. Selecting a search result shouldn't reset the zoom level

    When using the WME search box to find a road, it would be really nice if WME could leave the current zoom level well alone rather than always resetting it to level 3.

    Even if it just defaulted back to level 4 that'd be an improvement, but jumping back out to 3 means we then always have to zoom back in at least one step if we want to be able to select a street segment. And even at L4, anyone looking to do some work on point places would then need to zoom in one step more before they…

  11. Improvements in segment selection for road closures

    Sometimes it's necessary to select multiple segments to perform a road closure either for MTE or for a conventional closure. After you have several segments selected, you accidentally select a node and all work is lost (the section disappears). I suggest making a modification that prevents the disappearance of the selection of these segments and notifies the editor that you selected a node and it will not be possible to make the respective closure (before or at the moment of trying to save). Obviously the idea is to give you the opportunity to remove the node from the selection and…

  12. New Place Address

    I'm not sure if it's a minor-bug or intended, but I ask you to take a look:

    Issue regarding Map Editor Beta and Production.

    :arrow: When you find a new place waiting for approval, if you click on the red arrow everything runs smooth, but if you feel the need to click on the yellow arrow to check what's that place is about before approving it (sometimes you can't tell just by the name title), notice it isn't possible to change the address... well maybe it's ok at this point before approving it.

  13. Show RPP PUR's on feed list

    There is no privacy issue involved here.

    There's simply a pin in the map, among many others, but I can't find them like any others, just because category is "residential"

    The privacy issues are solved by the already omitted creator/updater of the place. By not showing them, you are simply making it harder for the PUR be moderated, as we have to scan the map or rely on scripts to do that.

    So, plainly: RPP PUR's should be shown in feed list just as any other PUR.

    OBS: Previous discussion took place here: https://www.waze.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=211&t=249211&p=1774596#p1774596

  14. Address localization

    lease allow localization of address field just as it is done in search results, so it would be possible to have "%{street} %{housenumber}" instead of "%{housenumber} %{street}" for some languages.

  15. Allow taking a Place picture from Streetview

    Requirements: the Streetview panel is open and the place layer is on

    Then: allow creating a box on the Streetview panel. When a box is drawn add a bar saying: now select a place to apply this picture.
    Add an X on the box to delete it. Allow the user to resize the box.
    Set a minimum size and a fixed ratio (the one used by the client) for a decent resolution.
    Drawing a new box removes the previous one if present.

    If then the user clicks on a place, ask him:

    "would you like to set this selection as…

  17. Suppress Live Map Overlay

    Recently a change to Live Map introduced an overlay and call to action footer with information on how to download the Waze app when the URL contains a permalink to a location.

    (Image attached)

    While this is great for users that have not yet been introduced to Waze, map editors do not need to see it every time they open Live Map from within WME. Fortunately, if the following query string parameters are appended to the URL, both the overlay and call to action are suppressed:

    Hey!

    Thank you for this suggestion.
    This suggestion is related to Live Map and not WME.

    In addition, We don’t have the overlay anymore, and therefor we won’t move forward with the suggestion.

    Thanks!

  18. Recommend change link for Parking Lot Operator Fixes

    The "Add an operator to the list" link under parking lot operator selection makes it sound like you can only add new operator names.

    Once you go to the link you see that the form is actually for more than additions; "Use this form to add, delete or replace parking lot operators that will be shown in the Client."

    Recommend changing "Add an operator to the list" to the following "Operator list change suggestion". If you want a second line "(Add, Delete, Merge, or Spelling Correction)". This is more descriptive of what the form can actually do.

  19. Tag URs with "Not Following"

    I tried finding a post that described this problem but I could not find it, in case there is one, it can be merged to that thread.

    tl;dr Add a tag to URs when the user is not registered or not following a UR.

    Not long ago ronsek57 told me that users, who just opened the app and never registered, are able to send URs but they never receive any of our messages asking for more information. I tested that on three URs (IDs 11946180, 11946458, 11946459), I am not adding permalinks because they already disappeared from WME.

    I sent…

    Hey,

    Thank you very much for taking the time for thinking of it. As it was mentioned in the forum before, as for now, this suggestion will not be implemented.

    We are currently working on some other changes to our conversations.

  20. Allow users to keep hands on the keyboard until done typing

    As a general principal of design, please allow the user to keep both hands on the keyboard until done typing information

    Examples of desired behavior:
    Places - After entering address, use the return/ enter key to activate the "apply" button. Or else automatically apply address changes when tab is used to advance to another field. (Currently, we have to move hand to mouse, click apply, find correct place on keyboard, and then use tab to advance to name field and resume typing)

    Closures - After entering description, use the tab key to advance to "direction" (Currently, this does not work).…
