Every UR is a golden nugget of information for improving the map, and every UR reporter is a partner in map editing. There are more open URs in New York City than in most of the rest of the USA combined. These URs are a gold mine of information about things that need to be fixed on the map. The streets are complicated and ever-changing in New York City, the number of wazers is high, and the percentage of wazers editing the map is not quite high enough. The New York City UR Project aims to bring together a few editors with a variety of experiences to mine that gold, improve the map, and learn from each other.
 +
 +
This project will work on one borough at a time, spending several weeks in each. The project team will individually analyze, answer, and act on every UR in the borough. More experienced editors will teach newer editors how to confidently follow guidance and etiquette to get the most of URs. New and visiting editors will experience editing some of the most interesting street systems in the US. Editors of all ranks will learn from those who are familiar with the streets.

===New York State UR Guidelines===
 +
The project will follow [[New York]]&nbsp;State guidelines for working URs.
 +
 
 +
'''We will use 1-4-10 system.'''
 +
 
 +
When you can solve an UR without any user input:
 +
* You '''OPENED''' an UR.
 +
* '''IDENTIFIED''' the problem,
 +
* you were able to '''SOLVE''' it...
 +
* '''LEAVE A COMMENT''' and click '''MARK''' as '''SOLVED''' and '''CLOSE IT'''
 +
 
 +
URs that are not clear and that we need users' input:
 +
 
 +
'''Day 1:'''
 +
* You '''OPENED''' an UR.
 +
* '''CANNOT IDENTIFY''' the problem,
 +
* '''ASK''' user for clarification
 +
* Wait for 4 days and send a '''REMINDER'''
 +
 
 +
'''Day 4:'''
 +
* '''SEND''' a '''REMINDER''' note to the user
 +
* Wait for user's response from for 10 days
 +
* if no answer comes from the user, CLOSE the UR (see below)
 +
 
 +
'''Day 10:'''
 +
* It's been 10 days since you sent the reminder.  
 +
* '''LEAVE A COMMENT''' and click '''MARK as NOT IDENTIFIED''' and '''CLOSE IT'''
 +
 
 +
Summary:
 +
* UR reporters and other editors are all respected members of the community and partners in closing URs. We treat everone with respect and courtesy. Even when they are wrong or make an unpleasant response. :)
 +
* Always thank the UR reporter for helping with the map.
 +
* 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.
 +
* If editors need to discuss the analysis or approrpriate response to the reporter. We do not discuss in the UR.
 +
* We always analyze a UR and all available clues before making our first response
 +
* We prefer targetted, customized responses. No automated responses
 +
* If it is immediately apparent how to fix the problem and solve the UR, you may make the fix, notify and thank the reporter, and close the UR.
 +
* If a response is needed, follow the "wait time" guidelines - this means that there will be at minimum 3 comments from reporters before closing a UR.
 +
** After making a first response to a UR or after responding to the reporter's comment, wait 4 days before sending a reminder.
 +
** If there has been a reminder, and the reporter has not responded after 14 days from the first response, evaluate whether the UR is ready to close.
 +
** When closing a UR, always use an appropriate closing comment.

Revision as of 03:29, 12 April 2018

Start: 14 April 2018 (subject to change) End: April 2019 (approximately)

Every UR is a golden nugget of information for improving the map, and every UR reporter is a partner in map editing. There are more open URs in New York City than in most of the rest of the USA combined. These URs are a gold mine of information about things that need to be fixed on the map. The streets are complicated and ever-changing in New York City, the number of wazers is high, and the percentage of wazers editing the map is not quite high enough. The New York City UR Project aims to bring together a few editors with a variety of experiences to mine that gold, improve the map, and learn from each other.

This project will work on one borough at a time, spending several weeks in each. The project team will individually analyze, answer, and act on every UR in the borough. More experienced editors will teach newer editors how to confidently follow guidance and etiquette to get the most of URs. New and visiting editors will experience editing some of the most interesting street systems in the US. Editors of all ranks will learn from those who are familiar with the streets.

Goals

  1. Use URs to find and fix the map
  2. Analyze, answer, and act on every open UR in NYC
  3. Learn, practice, and teach NY state guidelines and best practices for working URs
  4. Look for and fix other issues in the general vicinity of the URs
  5. If all the URs are currently dealt with (closed, or in a "waiting period"), address PURs and MPs in the current borough.

What is NOT a Goal of this Project

Any edits not required to solve URs, such as parking lots or other basic edits.

Speed Limits.

Locking standards.

Hosts

All Local NY State Managers and A/RCs

Guidance

New York State UR Guidelines

The project will follow New York State guidelines for working URs.

We will use 1-4-10 system.

When you can solve an UR without any user input:

  • You OPENED an UR.
  • IDENTIFIED the problem,
  • you were able to SOLVE it...
  • LEAVE A COMMENT and click MARK as SOLVED and CLOSE IT

URs that are not clear and that we need users' input:

Day 1:

  • You OPENED an UR.
  • CANNOT IDENTIFY the problem,
  • ASK user for clarification
  • Wait for 4 days and send a REMINDER

Day 4:

  • SEND a REMINDER note to the user
  • Wait for user's response from for 10 days
  • if no answer comes from the user, CLOSE the UR (see below)

Day 10:

  • It's been 10 days since you sent the reminder.
  • LEAVE A COMMENT and click MARK as NOT IDENTIFIED and CLOSE IT

Summary:

  • UR reporters and other editors are all respected members of the community and partners in closing URs. We treat everone with respect and courtesy. Even when they are wrong or make an unpleasant response. :)
  • Always thank the UR reporter for helping with the map.
  • 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.
  • If editors need to discuss the analysis or approrpriate response to the reporter. We do not discuss in the UR.
  • We always analyze a UR and all available clues before making our first response
  • We prefer targetted, customized responses. No automated responses
  • If it is immediately apparent how to fix the problem and solve the UR, you may make the fix, notify and thank the reporter, and close the UR.
  • If a response is needed, follow the "wait time" guidelines - this means that there will be at minimum 3 comments from reporters before closing a UR.
    • After making a first response to a UR or after responding to the reporter's comment, wait 4 days before sending a reminder.
    • If there has been a reminder, and the reporter has not responded after 14 days from the first response, evaluate whether the UR is ready to close.
    • When closing a UR, always use an appropriate closing comment.

Before you edit

Settings

  • Use the settings tab (gear icon on the right).

Waze settings

  • Advanced Preferences: Check all boxes
  • Units: Imperial
  • Environment: North America
  • Language: Choose your language

Which settings should be used

Places

Adding places will be required to solve some of the URs. New York follows USA guidance on places except for .... The WMEPH tool for place harmonization is a useful way to check that you have followed guidance on completing places.

Update pending Places

You can proceed with places that are pending updates (enable the "Places" checkbox in Issues layer of WME).

  • Please wisely approve new photos of places. Check the place exterior with StreetView if possible.
  • New parking lots should only be area places.

URs

Here's a great place to put that NY state UR guidance currently being discussed in the forums.

Summarize here, link to the full text on the NY State wiki page?
