→Manual locks: Update "Risk" bullet point to respond to suggestions in forum thread
*''Exposure'' reflects the number of ranking editors likely to have editing access to the location. It is highest at large international airports and popular international destinations.
lowest for simple, common constructions. It is highest for complex constructions involving subtle knowledge or difficult tradeoffs, or that appear to depart from common practice. Risk may be mitigated somewhat with the use of a [[Map comment|Map Comment]].
*''Value'' is highest for popular and infrastructure-critical roads and destinations.
Balancing these tradeoffs may lead to manual locks that at first glance seem surprising. For example, the main street of a large but essentially rural town with few visits by editors may be locked at 5, while the main street of a major city subject to frequent closures due to parades and other events may be locked at 4.
When departing from regional locking standards, it is always useful to include a [[Map comment|Map Comment]] describing why the departure was necessary.
