South Africa MapRaid
Waze implements Throttling of edits when mass editing occurs.
If you mass edit:
Please think quality not quantity.
Welcome to the Wiki for the South African MapRaid. The main wiki page for South Africa can be found here: https://wiki.waze.com/wiki/South_Africa
The raid is scheduled to run from 30th April to 8th May 2016.
Our primary focus is verifying and Updating Speed Limits (SL). If you find other issues while working on SLs that need attention, feel free to give it. Remember, the main goal is Speed Limits.
Changing to ROW Server
For our US and Canadian visitors, South Africa falls under the World Server. In the upper right hand corner of the editor, where it says US & Canada, you can click it for a dropdown menu. To edit in South Africa, change to the World server, commonly known as the ROW (Rest of the World) server. The US & Canada server is commonly known as the NA Server.
Note: This option is not visible if you are in fullscreen.
Make sure you are set to Metric units under settings.
Areas and Groups
South Africa has nine provinces - each of these provinces will be a raid area. As some provinces are less developed than others you will have access to some of the others. Please keep to your province until you are satisfied there is nothing more to do there. Lesotho and Swaziland are not part of South Africa. Please do not edit there.
