This is a rough draft only! If you come across this, do NOT take this as Gospel. It is an attempt to quickly annotate my finding as I learn things I did not read in the Wikis or was told by other editors. It is not yet a finished version.

Road Segments

  • NEVER delete a road segment without verifying it can be deleted without loss of GPS data. If you do not know how to verify that, contact one of your Area, State or Regional Managers to ask first. Once the data is deleted, there is no way to bring it back.
  • Any changes to roads that do not delete the segment will not affect the GPS data attached to it. You can completely change the name, the type, the lock level, elevation. All GPS data is attached to the segment ID # only.

  • The easiest way to fix a REVCON. Click the "Disallow All" turns button in WME, then click "Allow All". This method works on 95% of REVCONS you will encounter.

Places

  • Before adding a new place, ensure it is not already in the system. There is currently no way to merge duplicate Places into 1, so editor must pick and choose which Place better meets the requirements and often times, any toss ups, may go to the older of the Places.
  • Place categories affect searches. For Gas Stations, ALWAYS make sure that GAS STATION is the first entry in the category. After that, you can add Convenience Store & ATM as most stations have those as well. But the first entry is the Primary entry and takes priority over the rest.
  • The QUALITY of Place photos is important. There are guidelines that must be met to approve a new photo submitted by a user. Photos that do not meet these guidelines are to be deleted and users can attempt to re-submit new ones later.
  • Stores that include a fueling station like WalMart, Kroger,Target, Costco should be added twice. Once for the fueling center part and once for the store part - each with the appropriate category and place type (fuel - area, store - point)

User Reports

Editor Points

  • Using scripts to do bulk edits can sometimes get you throttled. That means that editing during that period will not earn you any points.
  • It appears that using scripts like the Speed Limit Helper script to edit more than one segment at a time may earn you a throttling period.
