Subj: Welcome to Waze editing in Illinois!

Hello -

I was working on the map and happened across some of your edits. I wanted to pass along some information to help get you started.

It is a good idea to have an experienced editor check your work as you begin. Other editors can easily be reached by opening the chat window in the lower right of the Waze Map Editor (WME) page. Our local Area Managers (AM) and State Manager (SM) along with level 4 and 5 editors are a great resources.

You can direct a message at a particular editor in chat by prefixing "@" to their name. Often editors will have a tool installed to alert them to such messages. For instance, you could direct a chat message to me by entering "@MYNAME hello."

A good place to get started is on the main WME wiki page: [url]https://wiki.waze.com/wiki/Waze_Map_Editor[/url]
