Almost any edits that I make need approval, apart from slightly adjusting the alignment of existing roads via vertices. My page says I have more than 2,400 edits (2,200 of which have been approved) , and creating new roads used to not be a problem. I'm not sure what it is now — maybe I just need even more edits to become more trusted by the system? For a few weeks after reopening everything was fine and dandy, it was only withing the past 2 weeks that auto-moderator started requesting approval for every edit.

Huh, maybe it's trying to put the brakes on you!

They locked everything down after a few people vandalized some areas.

I guess that's part of the reason no one has put the spur line trail on the bike/walking directions yet.

Old news, that.
They've reopened editing for a month now. GtwoK and I contribute.

As for the Spur Line, I've been fighting with that ever since editing opened up. Everything looks right in Mapmaker, but for some unknown reason, it just keeps not showing up in directions. I've done a lot of tweaks to see if it would fix it, but nothing is working. And then I'll make a change that needs Google approval, and I have to deal with arbitrary judgement of poorly documented guidelines.

Is that the role of community mapmakers? I'd really hope that ION route and stops and schedules is all driven from region's GTFS data.

Or is there another aspect of the ION route that would be community-added?

In some spots, it'll likely reshape footpaths, at the least. Not that those have proven to be easy to recognize (see: Spur Line). Hopefully the stations won't be seen as islands Tongue

Good point. For ped and bike directions to work well, the station areas and connections to them will have to be well outlined.

The community mapmakers add the visual indication of rails to the map. As for transit functionality, that's up to GRT and their GTFS data.
