On January 24, 2012, the editing ranks were updated along with the map editor. This new rating should appear on the left of the screen as a series of 6 orange cones. As of right now, the updated ranks do not apply to the map editor. If you look at any road segment in Waze, the old editing rank still applies.

Editing Ranks

You can see your own editing rank from the Waze Map Editor on the top left of the screen. Your rank appears as a series of cones with a number. Also note that currently the segments you edit on the map will show your rank using the older rank number system in pace before January 2012.

If your rank is lower than what it should be (based on the criteria below), please contact support to have the team look into the situation.

Description Rank (WME) Rank (segment edits on map and old Cartouche editor) Notes

Editing permissions

Locked segments

When an editor locks a segment, it currently has two functions:

  1. Automatic adjustments
  2. Editing ability

Automatic adjustments

A locked segment will not be changed by GPS tracks both in terms of geometry and directionality.

Segment Editing ability

A locked segment cannot be changed by an editor of a rank lower than that of the locking editor, or the rank of the editor who last edited the segment. The rank is locked based on the last person to edit the segment, and not the user who created it.

You can edit segments based on your editing rank and Editable area. Once a segment is locked, only a user with the same (or higher) rank, or an Area Manager whose area includes that segment, can edit the segment again.

Locked junctions

A junction is considered to be locked when at least one segment which is connected to that junction is locked. A junction is locked from making driving-based changes (such as opening a restricted turn) once one of the turn restrictions in that junction is edited.

Speed cameras editing ability

The last person to edit the speed cam is basically locking it to their rank. A user with a lower rank will not be able to change / delete the camera, unless they are the owner of the camera or if it's in their area of management.

Area Managers

Area Managers can override anything locked, even if it was locked by an editor of a higher rank.

A growing list of Area Managers and their preferred contact details can be found here.
