Interestingly it does not match the mentioned Waze wiki points system chart :)

I've found that I almost always have right around 400 points more than the math tells me I should. The 1.5 points per edit that the wiki shows is not set in stone...some types of edits may be worth more or fewer points. The exact point values haven't been made available to us. The points the wiki shows is just an average.

If I had available someone else's Dashboard table values for a period of a couple of consecutive days, I could elaborate for him/her. But this works for me (and the "discrepancy offset" is now around + 6-8 points, for weeks already):

factor, for:
1.6 Map Updates
6 Driving Alerts
40 New Recorded Kilometers
3.2 Existing Kilometers
1 Offline Existing Kilometers
3 Resolved Update Requests
2/3 Forum Posts
3 House Numbers
0.01 Waze Cookie Eater meters
(Note that the constants are for km/meter Dashboard version.)


After multiplying the Dashboard table with corresponding factors, I sum up the resulting points. Then I add the sum of my bonus candies (first 10 miles, first report, first week you drove n days, etc.) - it is now (and will probably remain) 2 430 points. Then the 750 points editing candies - now 31*750 = 23 250 points. The discrepancy is now 5.74 and varies around +-0.1 ... 1.4 daily.

The editing candies come seldom, I just notice that the discrepancy is suddenly by "n x 750" points higher and immediately know the number of applied editing candies.

foxitrot,

Do you have a spreadsheet for this you can share?

I'm using other file, local on my machine. But you can try this tiny spreadsheet:
Dashboard-to-Points - https://docs.google.com/spreadsheet/ccc ... zlLQ2h2S1E

As an example, I've entered two copies of my Dashboard table, from today and from two weeks ago. The upper two cells of the C column are stroked-through: the lower one is my "discrepancy offset", the upper one becomes nonzero after some editing candies' credit appears - then I just increment the corresponding value in the bottom row and the offset again gets low.

----
I'm just trying to make also the feet+miles version match... but it does not seem to work for my Dash values :lol: Apparently because my Driven miles' points (times 5) are not equal with my Driven km's points (times 3.2); similarly with Newly recorded miles/km (times 64/40) and Cookie Eater... :roll:

How do you know how much candy did you go to edit? Only the tip approached the difference?

I can off course only guess (according to the math), how much were applied on my points.

Got it!
I also tried in count, but I always get confused :)

I am also doing maths with my dashboard and, following the explanation in this thread (in Spanish), the results are almost exact (error < 1 point) in the time interval [12/24, today]. This also means that no points for munching 750pt candies are being added, and no points for adding new street names to the maps. :(

A quick translation:
Driving

Record new streets- 1 point / 25 m
Cookie munching - 1 point / 100 m
Drive existing road - 1 point / 312.5 m
Offline driving (existing roads) - 1 point / 652 m

Editing

Map edit - 8 points / 5 edits
Update requests - 3 points / solved one
Street number - 3 points / edit
Street name - 3 points

Other

Forum - 2 points / 3 messages
Reports - 6 points
Report comment - 3 points

What does offline driving mean, and does anyone have anything other than a zero in that field?

I think someday will have the opportunity to subsequently charge the journeys continued without an Internet connection.

It actually a previous feature that Waze had which they removed several versions ago.
