Welcome

The AL-FL MapRaid will be 27 October 2019 at 19:00 UTC through 09 November 2019 23:59 UTC (approximately).

Thank you and welcome to the Alabama/Northwest Florida MapRaid! We appreciate your contributions, whether many or few, toward improving the map throughout Alabama & North Florida area. A MapRaid (or MR) gathers editors from across the editing community to work together to edit an area of the map for a short burst of activity. While you as an editor will receive editing area for the parts of both states, you will receive a grouping, each of which has a subset of the area and a set of priorities for what is most needed in that subset. It will be your task to work with your group to help achieve those priorities! The number 1 task is to be detailed and make sure the places are correct: having all the correct information in them and stop points are in the correct location.

Mission

The primary goals for this MapRaid are to clean up as many places and parking lot areas (PLAs) as possible.

Priorities

(These can vary by group depending on needs) If you add PLR(s) to a parking lot, YOU MUST fix all the places in the area which would use or are serviced by those PLR’s.

  2. Parking Lot Roads (PLRs)

Important / Mapraid guidelines

Please read the entire MapRaid wiki. If you are uncertain what to do about something you see on the map, please ask your group leader.

When you are editing in the raid area, please set yourself visible and enable the Live users layer.

Edit quality and mass editing

You are responsible for every edit you make, whether you make it by hand or use a script. Every edit you make should meet the goals of this MapRaid and make a noticeable improvement to the map. Do not make edits simply to gain points without improving the map. If a segment is "good enough" for the Waze map, do not edit it. If it looks like you are making unnecessary edits or hunting for points, you may be banned from this MapRaid and from future MapRaids.

Editor restrictions

Map editing restrictions that affect level 1 and 2 editors remain during the raid.

Time zones

For relevant WME interfaces that display in the editor's browser time zone, Alabama and Florida is in the Central Daylight Time (UTC -5) for this raid.

Toll roads

Regardless of editor rank, do not alter any toll road segments without consulting your group leader who will escalate to raid leadership.

Cameras

Do not add any cameras.

Parking Lot Roads (PLRs)

Follow the SER standard for adding PLR’s from the Wazeopedia.

Update Requests (URs)

Follow the SER guidance to work them, make them correct and complete.

Map Problems (MPs)

Bring PLAs to region standards before approving and closing the MP.

Place Update Requests (PURs)

Clear all PURs and make sure all information is correct in the places you are working per SER guidance and that you are using WMEPH. (Make it green!)

Segment Locks

All of the Southeast region observes the below lock standards.

When you edit any segment during the MapRaid, please set the lock level correctly. If you are unable to lock it to the correct level, then lock it to the level of your rank and request your group leader raise the lock to the standard.

Roads may be locked higher for protection and special situations (areas with construction, tricky design, frequent mistakes, incorrect images, etc.). Do not decrease a rank just to decrease a rank, talk to your group leader before you do.

There are some cases that do not adhere to this standard, such as any theme park type areas in Orlando (5/6). Further, all gates at gated communities / private installation should be locked to at least 5.

Standard for locking roads in the southeast region:
Segment Type Default locks
 Freeway  5
 Ramp  5
 Major Highway  5
 Minor Highway  4
 Primary Street  3
 Street  1
 • • • • Ferry • • • •   5
 |-|-|-|-|-|-|-|-|-| Railroad |-|-|-|-|-|-|-|-|-|  2

Tools and scripts

There are many scripts and extensions that editors use to assist with editing that not only make some jobs easier, but verifies what we do is correct. The use of these scripts is highly encouraged and those listed below are the ones you should install, at a minimum, to get started.

Once you have installed Toolbox, press the Toolbox Icon and select a minimum of the following options: Tb options.JPG

TamperMonkey

You will need to install a browser extension to manage the additional scripts. Some scripts do not work with the current version of GreaseMonkey so we recommend installation of TamperMonkey.
