I think that should get sent in to support. I'm very suspicious.

This has happened before. The process just either got stuck/crashed or is in mid-process. The points aren't lost.

But this does make me question how they are processing updates. The user table should have a field with all the current data. The points update process should run and only ADD points each day.

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

I imagine they aren't final yet. You have likely read the same post. The part I still wonder about, too, is "Giving segment a street name might get you more points in some cases" which never clarified. Does that mean going from blank to one? Or for changing it? What about alt names?

Nir also has stated that some types of changes get you more points.

gettingthere wrote:(the candy appears once you pass 750 editing points since the last candy)

Edits are not necessarily worth the same amount of points, and we don't have a clear idea of which edits "count," so saying it's 750 editing points isn't totally accurate. It's 500 edits which "count" that will show the 750pt editing bonus candy when driving.

And the bonus isn't added automatically. You must drive over the candy to get the points. It's to promote editing, but also to ensure that you get out and drive, too.

Although, even that isn't foolproof as I can turn Waze on while in my house, and it will put a bonus goodie on the road at the end of my driveway. Due to GPS drift, my wazer will move around a bit and eventually get the candy without me moving at all.

I picked up 7 editing candies on Wednesday. That's near my peak. :o

And I prefer yyyymmdd or yyyy-mm-dd because it 's the only one that sorts numerically.

Did he say that, or that he's looking into your other request ("size of the Cartouche archive panel") that you commented after your question about the miles/points? Hard to tell. :?

Oh, yeah, there are two comments in there before he replied. I don't know! :?
