I recently wanted to submit a city merge but could not find the form to submit the change/merge on the Duplicate cities page:

https://wazeopedia.waze.com/wiki/USA/Duplicate_cities#Changing_or_Merging_an_Entire_City_Name

This seems like a good addition to this section of the page. In addition, alluding to the fact some city renames can be done by Country Managers might be a good idea. I'd propose something like the following:

[b]Changing or Merging an Entire City Name[/b]

Using mass editing tools to change a city name on all segments is strongly discouraged - mass editing tools can lead to errors and loss of data. For city renames, these can often times be done by editors who are editor rank CM. Please contact one of these editors to see if the city rename can happen in this fashion. If this cannot be done or a merge is requested, the correct procedure is to fill out the [url=https://wazeopedia.waze.com/wiki/USA/Forms#Cities_Form]Cities Form[/url] and follow up with your Regional Coordinator or Assistant Regional Coordinator with the request. The coordinator will then ask Waze to make the correction in their database. A side benefit is any polygon with the old city name will be removed at the same time.
