Hangout Group

Wazebot.png

Minnesota also has a Google Hangout (GHO) for the state. The GHO is where you can go to interact and chat with fellow editors along with your Area and State Managers or even if you're just visiting and want to relay information to local editors. It will give you good insight into the best practices and policies in regard to map editing plus give an easy, convenient way for editors to stay in touch, ask questions (any questions, we all started at Rank #1 at some point), request downlocks or review of your work and get Peer-to-Peer Mentoring.

If you are editing in Minnesota and have not done so already, please Join Minnesota GHO

A list of the users in the hangout can be found here.

Hangouts is a free app available on Android and iOS devices. You also can use an extension in the Chrome Web Browser to access this chat. Go to: google.com/+/learnmore/hangouts for more information.

Once you join, Type !wb help in the GHO. This will get you started with Wazebot (wb); Wazebot will send you some help. In a DM (Direct Message or conversation) with the wazebot, type the following to set up your notifications by name and/or nickname. Wazebot will send you the instructions.

  1.  !mentions
  2.  !nickname

If some of the abbreviations and terms used are not clear, you can also use the wazebot to lookup terms for you. In a DM with wazebot, type !wb glossary [word] and the bot will send you some definitions.

If the notifications on your phone or computer get to be too much, in the WV GHO you can select the “3 dots” (circled in Blue), Select “Options” and turn off notifications if you do not want to be disturbed; Just uncheck the box.

Please do not modify/change any of the other options; they affect everyone.

Editor Lookup

We can lookup the activity of any editor by going to the following page for that editor: http://www.waze.com/user/editor/* , where * is the editor's username in Waze.

For example: http://www.waze.com/user/editor/GadgetJ
