→RULE NUMBER 3: YOU EDIT, YOU OWN, YOU ANSWER
== Welcome to Waze Map Editing==
=== Important Information for All Editors ===
====RULE NUMBER 1 : DO NOT DELETE SEGMENTS====
If you find a road that does not appear in reality in any way please consult your AM or higher editor before removing the segment. You will always have a better reputation for asking before deleting something.
NUBMER 2: DO NOT USE COPYRIGHT SOURCES====
Review [[Using_external_sources|<big>'''Using External Sources'''</big>]] for more information on this subject.
The southeast has a wiki at [[Southeast#Mapping_Resources_.26_Functional_Classification|<big>'''Southeast Mapping Resources'''</big>]] for editors to use. These have general disclaimers and the satellite images are usually the only portion that is copyright. The parcel data is "at our own risk" and are government records. Due to that we are allowed to use them. If you are outside the southeast region and cannot find whether the source you are using is OK please consult your local Regional Management.
