USA

This section was moved from the main page while we identify the best way to manage the different settings for various countries.


The system is ready for traffic locks, but they are not yet implemented due to some problems being worked on. Details are being worked out. The primary problems preventing it from being turned on in the USA are:

  • No segment should be automatically locked to rank 6. Rank 5 should be the maximum, because of the limited rank 6 resources, and the generally accepted level of trust in rank 5 editors.
  • Area Managers need immunity from traffic locks within their managed area, or they won't be effective in managing them. This will unnecessarily increase the burden on higher ranked editors, who have assigned the Area Managers based on their trust level within the area.

Because of this, traffic locks are not even visible in the standard USA editor at this time. They are visible only to Beta editors.
