What happened to the edit segment tool?

The OCD gremlin in me really enjoyed cleaning up bad segments. Reporting the duplicates, editing the starting position from someone’s favorite parking spot… But I can’t find that tool anymore and there are still some simple edits that can be done for example:

the start of this northbound segment requires entry from an unmarked trailhead at a ditch further up a paved road with no bike lane:

while the southbound has a simple, clearly marked, and established start + finish on the established trail that runs along a major acequia (irrigation canal) without diversion.

@THENEWMEXICAN I'm not new to Strava by any means and I have been creating and looking for ways to edit segments for a decade or more.  There has never been a way to edit other people's segments.  Period.

I've just tested it: Reporting a segment is still there and editing (if you've created it yourself) is too.

It seems you ignored the topic of discussion in that I’m not trying to report bullying or harassment nor a dangerous segment. I’m trying to edit and clean up bad segments built by anyone.

@THENEWMEXICAN - You never could edit someone else's segment.  They have only ever allowed you to edit ones you created.  The only thing you can do now and have ever been able to do with someone else's segment is flag it which is usually not what most people are looking for.  I would love to go in a clean up bad segments too, but that has never been an option.

you must be new to Strava or didn't explore the online gui prior to 2019 as you used to be able to edit the start and stop point of any segment that you had ever completed. just because you had not explored that tool before it was taken away doesn't mean it didn't exist.

Such a thing was never possible, you could and can only edit segmemts created by yourself.

like I said to the above person: you must be new to Strava or didn't explore the online gui prior to 2019 as you used to be able to edit the start and stop point of any segment that you had ever completed. just because you had not explored that tool before it was taken away doesn't mean it didn't exist.

I agree.  Having the option to tweak segment created by others, mainly the finish point, would be hugely helpful. I know of several that end in intersections or after stop signs.  Rules could be implemented that would reject major changes.

I have created quite a lot of Segments and I like to think most have been done carefully.  I don't want some random stranger editing them to suit their own preferences.
