Hope to see you editing,<br />
===== WME (Waze Map Editor) =====
First thing in the Editor, select the “gear” icon and enable the first two checkboxes, then change the language to US English:
[[File:WMESettings-SettingsRR.png]]<br />
===== Scripts and Extensions =====
The most common and supported browser is Chrome with Firefox a close second. <br />
If you are using Chrome , the scripts are managed by [ <u>TamperMonkey</u>]. <br />
If you are using Firefox they FireFox, the scripts are managed by [ tampermonkey <u>GreaseMonkeyTamperMonkey</u>]. <br />
Which ever one of these is appropriate TamperMonkey should be installed prior to the scripts.
The first one is an extension in Chrome at least, I don't know about Firefox. <br />
WME [[Scripts/WME_Toolbox|<u>Toolbox</u>]]<br />
After Toolbox is installed it will add several things to the WME editor. At the top next to the Places Map Comments Icon will be a picture of a toolboxwith the word <b>Toolbox</b>.
If you hover your mouse over it, a menu should open. Select the following options:
[[File:Ron-Toolbox-settings.jpg]]<br />
Toolbox also loads a toolbar that is usually at the bottom but it is moveable, place it where you want. Toolbox also shortens the [[Permalink]] or PL, for better usage when requesting down-locks and up-locks. Then You can refresh your screen by selecting the chain links in the bottom right cornerand left clicking. The chain links also give you the [ <u>PermaLink</u> ] (PL) infoby hovering over the links and then clicking CTRL-C.
WME [ <u>Magic</u>]<br />
This will validate edits and other general best practices of the map. Ohio settings for lock levels, and other state specific settings are already loaded in Magic.
WME [ <u>Validator</u>]<br />
This checks map features for errors and highlights them or can make a report that is clickable.
WME [ <u>Ohio Specific Scripts</u>]<br />
These are Ohio Specific. Validator settings for Ohio are included in these scripts.<br />
There is another set of Region Specific scripts that can be found at the [ <u>GLR Specific Scripts</u>] <br />
Each of these scripts adds a tab that has its settings under it.<br />
WME To assist with editing places use [ harmonizer <u>Ohio Specific ScriptsPlace Harmonizer</u>],<br />These are Ohio Specific and the Ohio Localization runs with Validator for our lock levels and other differences, FC and more.
A pretty complete list of scripts can be found [,_Extensions_and_Tools <u>here</u>],<br />
While in Discord, initiate a DM with the Community Bot and type this in, <i>!scripts new editor</i>, you will get a list of suggested scripts for new editors.
It will work from the Ohio Channel but it is private if you do it in the Community Bot.<br />

==== Big Detour Prevention (BDP) Explained by Bill473 ====
{{mbox|type=caution|text=This section was written in 2015, when the over-application of detour prevention caused routing errors. Due to changes to the algorithm in 2017, these types of problems no longer occur, but now detour prevention can be under-applied, so understanding how it works is still important in resolving routing problems.}}
''The following was originally presented by Bill473 as a training aid to satisfy the BDP requirement to attain R4 rank for both of us. Bill has made changes based on feedback from PesachZ and TerryPurdue but remains responsible for any errors or omissions. If you have suggestions to make this better, please contact either [ Ron] or [ Bill].''
Here's the [ LiveMap link] to the area.
====<u>Waze Turn Instructions and When, Why They Occur</u>====
Another thing about the first prompt, if it’s between 1 and ¼ mile to the next turn, it rounds to the nearest quarter mile.
You have 0.79 miles between movement and by the time the 5 or 10 seconds have passed since the previous turn, it’s too late for ¾ mile, so you get the first prompt at half a mile.
That’s a design flaw now so I will see if I can get it fixed.<br />__________________________________________________________ [ Here] is a flowchart of this information for another perspective, prepared by Kent Smith (kentsmith9)
