<big>'''MapRaid Mission'''</big>
'''The Accent''' - Either you have it or you don't. And we don't "pahk the cah in the hahvahd yahd." Although, at times, "the weathah heah is wicked bzah".
'''Wicked''' - This word is used as a modifier. In order to use it correctly, it must be followed by an adjective. "That club was wicked" is incorrect, and pegs you immediately as a tourist from the Midwest. It does ''NOT'' mean evil or bad.
Ok, maybe not so fabulous to some. But the top 3 finishers of each category (Segments edits, PURs, URs, etc) will each get a Waze T-shirt.
<small>''Unfortunately, any Raider starting early will be disqualified from the contest, and possibly blocked from editing.''</small>
==Local Hosts==
These gullible, I mean "dedicated," local editors have agreed to act as Local Hosts for the raid. If you have questions about editing, and you can't find the answer in the wiki, or you want to know how it applies in MA, please ask one of these editors.

===Raid Teams===
Instead of creating a space eating grid with all the editor names, we're going to link to the Forum post with team information.
[ Team Lists]
If you are a rank 5 or 6 editor - consider keeping highlights active for locks 5 and 6.
'''Please do not mass-edit''' - Do not perform edits which will affect large numbers of segments at once. The edit history of segments is highly valuable in the process of solving URs. Mass editing effectively mass erases this history, permanently. We ask that all necessary processes which might affect large portions of the map, or long stretches of roads, be reserved until near the end of the MapRaid. This includes the “Select entire street” function. To facilitate this process in an orderly fashion, we have the Scheduled Edits list below. Please document any mass edits which are required, and you will be given first chance to make those edits when the time is right.
'''Close nodes''' - We make use of the "micro-dogleg" technique, where a geometry node is carefully placed, at full zoom, directly next to a junction node, in order to set the angle to create a desired Turn/Stay/Exit prompt. Please watch for these if you move any junction node, and be sure to recreate the same angle at the new location.
==Local Guidance==
{{Lock Standard State|MA}}
FC Information is contained in the [[Massachusetts/Major_roads#Functional_Classification|main state wiki, located here]].
==== Military Installations ====
Please do not edit on [[Military_Bases|Military bases]] without consulting with your Team Leader first.
==== Tunnels ====
The City of Boston makes use of tunnels along Storrow Drive, as well as I-90 and I-93. Please do not make adjustments to roads in the tunnels.
==== Elevations ====
Also, do not increase elevation on segments that go over bridges. If there is no other segment going under it, it should be Ground.
==== Railroads ====
If you encounter railroads mapped underground, delete the underground segments.
=== Alternate Segment Names ===
We have a very specific policy regarding [[Massachusetts#Roadway_Naming|Alternate Street Names]]. Please follow the link for information.
Please consult the [[Massachusetts#Places|State Wiki for Places]] info and locking standards.
==== MBTA Station Naming Standard ====
For the purpose of harmonizing local railway stations (MBTA or the "T") we have 2 classes. One is for the color-coded subway lines and the other is for longer-distance commuter rails (purple line). The standard will be in the format: '''MBTA Type - Station Name'''
* MTBA Subway - South Station
* MBTA Commuter - Halifax
Additionally they are to be POINT places - not areas and locked to '''L3'''. If you have questions please direct them to a local host or the State Manager.
In an effort to standardize Place Names, Massachusetts uses the following list of Common names. Please note the appropriate category name, as well as the listed spelling. This is necessary for the proper display of any advertising associated with the site (i.e. SUBWAY discounts)
{{#widget:Google SpreadsheetIframe|keyurl=1D0D5BWcknlI7temFOnTmMBiVaGfzQ30CCcqHgmbJaA0;single=true&amp;widget=true&amp;headers=false
:If a name is missing, please let a [[Massachusetts#Area Managers|State Manager// View this list full-screen in Google Sheets]] know, and it will be added to the list.
=== Update Requests (URs) ===
 {{mbox| type =critical| small =left| textstyle = Update Requests (color: red; font-weight: bold; font-style: italic;| text = As of Jul 30th: For the remainder of the MapRaid, the waiting period for URs) ==has been reduced to 24hrs.| smalltext =Text for the top of article sections.}}
For the purpose of the MapRaid we will be using a 4-day response time. Once initial contact is attempted you will be allowed to close the UR after 4 days. Reminder comments can be used after 2 days. The clock used to close the UR will be from the initial '''MapRaid''' contact. Reminder comments do not reset the closure clock.
Plus, all '''group/team related''' communications should take place in the Group Slack Channel (e.g., "#''mr_boston-03''" and not in the main raid channel (#mr_boston). That way the editors most affected will receive all of the communications.

When the Champs see someone consistently editing well, interacting well with the community, and knowledgeable of the various details from the Wiki, they can issue promotions. This can be anything from the size of a managed area, to a rank increase, or even a new role.
{{mboxWithout further ado, all the participants in the ''Boston MapRaid'' would like to congratulate the following editors on their promotions:* '''''JoyRiding''''': Thank you for your wonderful Place Browser!
