(8/5/15) On a whim, decided to go back through old PMs and scroll back in some GHOs to put together a little timeline of my history as a Waze editor. Missing a few events that impacted me personally, but the significant events are fairly well complete. It's a work in progress...
7 Aug 2014 - Joined forums and WME and created my first red roads.
9 Aug 2014 - Wondering why my segments were red and all the others were white...found the wiki and let the light shine in. I'm an avid reader, especially when I get interested in a hobby. So I fixed my red roads and continued to read and read and read some more.
11 Aug 2014 (R1) - First unlock/update request. Fixing military base gate (military base fixes in Hampton Roads, Virginia?...go figure) (Reference Link)
12 Aug 2014 - Found WMECH & WME Validator. Started fixing Validator report problems. I heard about WMETB & JNF, but chose to fix things manually for awhile so as to better understand what the tools were doing for me.
29 Aug 2014 (R2) - Mapped out Norfolk Naval Shipyard (Military Base) at request of RC. Made a few small errors, but quickly corrected. (Reference Link)
24 Sep 2014 (R2, 12k edits): Requested first AM area with PL to Zoom=0 at Chesapeake/Virginia Beach, VA (i.e. home).
~14 Oct 2014 - AM Granted + R3.
10 Nov 2014 - Joined my first Map Raid assigned to Staten Island, NY (where I used to live).

20 June 2015 (R4) - MCM sent out some PMs on my behalf asking that I be allowed to join the M2.0 program as a "junior mentor". I would be one of very few non-SM/R5 mentors.
