  1. Remove false city names from UK WME database

    Following the mass import of data for 3 ad campaigns (McDonald's, M&S, Aldi) by the Ads / Geo-ops teams the UK map is now littered with false or incorrect city names. These must be removed from the map immediately as they are NOT city names and should not exist.

    The UK Champs have asked privately for this to be done but for some reason this request needs to be public.

    This is NOT a change to UK mapping, this is simply following common sense that Counties should never be used as a city name and fake city names should not…

  2. Junction Box Modal dialog does not appear in practice mode

    In practice mode, the modal dialog used to choose the routes through the Junction Box does not appear.

    It does appear when logged in.

    This is inconsistent. All the features of Junction Box should be visible in practice mode so editors can learn about junction box without risk of accidentally making changes.

  3. Invalid Railroad Regression Error

    I would put this in Beta Bugs but I know that technically it is not a bug. So I am going to make it a suggestion instead.

    If you have a railroad segment cross a street segment and you decide to junction them.
    (pic 1)
    You get an error when you save telling you that all turns are disallowed.
    (pic 2)

    While technically this is true, you CAN"T allow the turns onto/off the railroad segment (and you shouldn't be allowed to).

    This is a left over error from back when turns could be set on railroad segments and needs to…

  4. 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).…
