It's been a hell of a year! I'm particularly proud to have gone from nothing to being part of the UK self-management team.

I could not have done this without the help and support of all my fellow Wazers, not just here in the UK but across the world. I just hope I have managed to give back a fraction of the support and help I have received.


2 years completed - time for the obligatory comment that you can get less than that for killing someone in some places.

As you can see, my editing pace has slowed down somewhat in the last year - mainly due to much more work involved in UK Self-Management and the editor community. But the UK map is also getting more mature - it's rare to find any sections of untouched basemap now and most areas have at least seen the touch of an editor.

I'm now #7 in the thanks list with 1145 thanks. But that includes thanks on the closed forums, so that figure only shows for Global Champs (I think). When not logged into the forum, I'm #5 with 1047 thanks. As you can tell, I'm pretty active on the forums. ;)

Number of times I've seriously considered giving it all up in the last year - at least 4. Pressure from outside Waze has been fairly intense in the last year, not to mention the pressure of all the things I've committed myself to within Waze. I miss the days when there was nothing I had to do, but could just do some editing when I felt like it.

Number of times I've changed my mind about quitting in the last year - at least 3. But you haven't got rid of me yet. :lol:


3 Years!

Now #5 on the all-time thanks list with 2172 thanks (including on the closed forums). #26 all-time number of forum posts. As with last year, there's less editing and more community work. I have been as high as #38 on the ROW all-time scoreboard, but I generally seem to be floating around #40.

I made a rough estimate of the amount of time I've spend on Waze in the last 3 years. If I turned that time into 8 hours a day, 5 days a week, I would now have worked for Waze full time for over a year - and that's without taking any vacation time! :lol: I wonder what the average annual salary of a Waze employee is?

with little less time spent on waze, a bit more active on forum than in WME in comparision with last year, oscilating around rank of #200 most of the year...
* march - waze stickers giveaway
* april - we finaly agreed on AM self-management in Slovakia and with new segment-lock system I finally asked for L4 upgrade
* july - meetup of local leaders wich lasted till late night, together with other local leaders (most active editors) we discussed and then made segment re-categorization of our capital and several other topics/editing rules
* october - L4 area lock of few cities due to repetitive mistakes together with agreeing on exeptions for granting L4 to trusted editors. which resulted into having more than doubled number of L4s.
* december - when I got Xmas present - promotion to L5 from our coordinator ;)

I'm ranked 4th in my state (Colorado) though I think #2 is an OTR trucker who happened to be in Colorado this week -- I've been ranked #3 for weeks.

My commute is only about 10 miles, so most of my Waze work is as an area manager - from central Denver all the way North to Greeley - just trying to stay on top of the update requests!

Keep on Wazing!
