Using the WME, you can add, edit, or delete nearly any object within your [[#Editable_Area|editable area]]. If a road segment is '''locked''' by a user with a higher editing rank than you, the road, intersection, or turn permissions connected to that road segment cannot be altered unless you chose one of the following:
*Place a request to the [
https://www.waze.com/forum/viewtopic.php?t=46319 Update/Unlock Request forums] to unlock that segment by giving them a [[Waze Map Editor#Permalink|permalink]] with the segment or segments highlighted and a country manager may unlock it for you.
*Send a Private Message (PM) to the previous editor using the [http://www.waze.com/forum/ucp.php?i=pm&folder=inbox Forum PM functionality]. As of the August 12, 2012 update, Area Managers are no longer able to override segments locked by higher-rank editors.
