Indiana/Welcome

From Wazeopedia

Hello!

This page is to introduce you to the Indiana leaders and some helpful links to get on the best path to editing. There are currently three State Managers (SM) here in Indiana. jdeyoung, roadtechie and enfcer74. We also have some dedicated editors that provide focused coverage for the 6 INDOT districts.

They are available any time if you have questions or concerns about something. You can PM any of us here, or use Google Hangouts (GHO). GHO’s are a huge part of the editing community these days. They are great for communicating, finding answers to questions, and getting to know your fellow editors. If you don't already have a gmail account, we would recommend getting one for that alone. If you do have one, share it and we can add you to the group.

If you haven't already seen this page: https://goo.gl/U9wcSY We would highly recommend you take a look and install a couple of the script/tools that we have available. They are EXTREMELY helpful to editing.

At minimum, you should consider these: Validator, WME Color Highlights, UR Overview Plus, and WME Toolbox. Others are good too, but those four are core ones to use.

Here are some important common wiki pages that you should also review. We keep these bookmarked for easy reference:

You should also take a look at the state page. It is a great resource for how we do things here in Indiana: https://wiki.waze.com/wiki/Indiana

Most new editors like to get going with parking lot roads, but often don’t know the proper way to map them. Please pay close attention to information about parking lots, excessive parking lot roads (PLR), red roads, railroads, trails, bodies of water, dividing/un-dividing roads, and area places. This is covered a bit more in-depth here: https://wiki.waze.com/wiki/Common_editing_mistakes


It's great to have you on board!

Hope to see you around a lot!

Thanks for your help with the map!
