Updated to point to NOR guidance and 0-4-4 timing
Generally, we follow the [[USA/Northeast#Update_Requests|USA Northeast Update Requests Request Guidelines]]. '''We will use a 10-4-10 4 timing system for all URs which require User Input'''. This means that any UR which is closed as "Not Identified" will be open for at least 14 8 days after the first comment from an editor(if the first comment is on Jan 20, the earliest it should be closed is Jan 28). If you need to ask more questions, you need to wait up to 14 8 days for a response to each question, so the UR might be open much longer. If you understand the solution for a UR immediately and do not need to ask questions, you may be able to close the UR the first time you look at it.
* We work as a team. Anyone may send a first response or reminder notice. If the problem is not identified and the reminder time has expired, anyone may close it. If we have a new idea, we discuss it with the other editor(s) working the UR.
* No automated responses. We prefer targettedtargeted, customized responses and questions.
* We always analyze a UR and all available clues before making our first response
* If editors need to discuss the analysis or approrpriate appropriate response to the reporter. We do not discuss in the UR.* UR reporters and other editors are all respected members of the community and partners in closing URs. We treat everone everyone with respect and courtesy. Even when they are wrong or make an unpleasant response. :)* Always close with an appropriate, targetted targeted comment thanking the UR reporter for helping with the map.
* What's the difference between a Solved UR and a Not Identified UR? If there was an issue that was figured out and/or corrected, and if that fix involved a change to the map, then all the URS related to that issue can be closed as "solved". Otherwise, the UR should be closed "Not Identified". So if you solved the reporter's problem by helping them to use waze better, without getting changes made to the map, that UR should be closed as Not Identified. If you come across an old UR related to a problem that has since been fixed, then the UR should be closed "Not Identified" with an explanation to the reporter.
====The 1-4-10 system for working on URs====
=====URs that are not clear and you need information from the reporter=====
* '''Day 10:'''
** You '''OPEN''' a UR.
** '''You DO NOT HAVE ENOUGH INFORMATION''' to solve the problem,
** '''ASK''' user for clarification
*** '''IF YOU GET AN ANSWER''' and need more information, return to the beginning of '''Day 10'''
*** '''IF YOU DO NOT GET AN ANSWER''', wait until the 4th day and Go to Day 4
*** '''IF YOU CAN NOW SOLVE THE UR''' return to '''When you can solve a UR without additional user input'''
** '''IF''' it has been '''4 DAYS SINCE THE REQUEST''' (the most recent comment will be from an editor)
** '''SEND''' a '''REMINDER''' note to the user and wait for up to 10 more days
*** '''IF YOU GET AN ANSWER''' and need more information, return to the beginning of '''Day 10'''*** '''IF YOU DO NOT GET AN ANSWER''', Go to '''Day 148'''
*** '''IF YOU CAN NOW SOLVE THE UR''' return to '''When you can solve a UR without additional user input'''
*'''Day 148:'''** '''IF''' it has been '''10 4 DAYS SINCE THE REMINDER''' (there was no response to the most recent request and reminder)
*** '''IF YOU CANNOT SOLVE THE UR''' then '''LEAVE A COMMENT''' and click '''MARK as NOT IDENTIFIED''' and '''CLOSE IT'''
*** '''IF YOU ARE VERY SURE YOU HAVE SOLVED THE UR'' but were simply waiting for confirmation from the reporter '''LEAVE A COMMENT''' and click '''MARK as SOLVED''' and ''SAVE IT'''
