PermaLinks & Unlock Requests
So save yourself some grief and remember to keep the screen at maximum of Zoom4 and centered and THEN create your PL!
* '''Mobile Editors'''
 
Often editors that are helping with 'unlock' requests, are accessing WME and the communication platform from a mobile device. They are very limited in what they can do in WME, and the typical smaller screens make doing any editing more challenging in general. They are also using cellular data, rather than 'unlimted' cable/ dsl connections.
 
When requesting assistance from such an editor, a PL created excluding the layer data is especially important. The extra map data is not needed for the unlock, so it only slows the WME page load, before the editor can actually do the unlock. That extra layer info also uses additional data on their cellular plan. Obviously we don't want to be a nuisance to the very people helping us!
 
Taking the mobile aspect one step further, it is often not possible to 'copy' a PL out of a single message 'bubble' in chat. Mobile devices usually only offer to copy the entire bubble. Some editors use mobile tools that they will paste the PL into. That extra step have to try to trim out words from the PL is an extra hassle for them.
 
So try to follow this simple procedure when sharing a PL:
 
* Describe what you want - [locked level > your level, what you want to do, location of your request]:<br />
 
''L3 to L2, connect a PLR, Rochester''
 
* Send your request to the communication platform
''Press Enter/ Send'' * Now paste your PL as a separate message ''https://www.waze.com/editor/?env=usa&lon=-77.44210&lat=43.09923&zoom=5&segments=33958923'' * Send your PL ''Press Enter/ Send'' ==== Layer Data ====
As an editor you might work on ''Map Problems'' [MP's] and ''Speed cameras'', and so you will have those layers turned on in WME.
