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.

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! I wonder what the average annual salary of a Waze employee is?
