Advertisement Pin Corrections
Note: New process released as of December 30, 2014[update].
If you find advertisment pins, in the app, that are wrong, either the location, name, or other details, they must be fixed by staff. You have two options;
- Make the adjustments to the place in WME (this will become a PUR regardless of your rank), and the Waze staff team will review it.
- Notify your local champ of the details, they can contact Waze staff directly. The Waze team monitors this so they can fix it, or report it to advertisers.
- In the US and Canada : use AdProblem form, unless you are an SM, CM, or champ. (As of 18 November 2015[update])

Connected Citizens Program Form
Connected Citizens Program Inquiries
The Waze Connected Citizens program brings cities and citizens together to answer the questions “What’s happening, and where?” We exchange publicly available incident and road closure reports, enabling our government partners to respond more immediately to accidents and congestion on their roads. In turn, we aggregate our partners' data on the Waze platform, resulting in one of the most succinct, thorough overviews of current road conditions today.
With the addition of city data, Wazers will be even safer on the roads and more knowledgeable about construction, marathons, floods or anything else that can cause delays. And for our government partners, publicly-available Waze data is a powerful tool to build more efficient cities. Real-time information from drivers is essential; no one knows more about what's happening in a city than the people who live there. In an era with smart phones, smart cars and smart homes, isn't it about time we start building smarter cities?

Formal Mentoring Requests
Formal Mentoring Application Form
Formal Mentoring in the USA is a one-on-one interaction between a Mentee and Mentor with specific objectives of increasing skill, editor level, and Waze Community participation. It entails a specific Mentee-Mentor pair who agree upon an objective, start, and end, this process needs a bit more coordination. It also requires commitment from both the Mentee and Mentor to complete the objective.

Places outdated in Google appearing in Waze
Places outdated in Google appearing in Waze Search Results
There is an ongoing issue regarding ‘Places’. In certain instances, search results display ‘Places’ that no longer exist. While these ‘Places’ do not exist on the Waze map any more, they are still in Google’s database. This causes search errors in countries where you get Google's results by default. We would like to fix this. Please submit examples of this issue to us using this form and we will do our best to correct it.
