Driving 500 miles in a week

Postby wouldratherflythere » Sun Jan 29, 2012 7:17 pm

When will my scoreboard give me credit for driving 500 miles in a week? I drove over 500 miles in a week during that period when points were not updating properly. . It still shows that I did not reach this goal. Thanks!

Every time I've driven the 500 miles in a week, it's been during a week when the scores were not updating and I still haven't gotten the credit.

You are kidding! How can we get them to resolve that? I am new to Waze and the scoring issues began pretty much as soon as I signed up. This happens all the time? I don't understand why they can't go back and apply all of the 500 mile peoples' points. I keep looking every day, assuming that they will show up.

The scoring was messed up for several weeks in late November/early December.

The scoring glitch last week was the first time it had happened since then, and this time it only lasted for a few days. Things are definitely getting better. Just bad timing I guess.

Also, if parts of your drives where done when Waze did not have a network connection, you likely won't get the bonus.

Check the drives in the My Places, drives area of the editor to see if all of the drives that you made during the week in question add up to over 500 miles. Remember a week is from Monday - Sunday in regards to this bonus.

I drive 120 miles each day and I do this 5 to 6 days a week since I started in Oct. I've gotten the 500 mile bonus twice. I must be doing something wrong because the editor does not pull up for me. So the only place I can see my history is in the My Dashboard. So here is my standard friday and monday:

Mon Feb 6 17:22:39 CST 2012 39.53 KM
Mon Feb 6 16:31:04 CST 2012 57.01 KM
Mon Feb 6 06:52:56 CST 2012 96.91 KM
= 193.45 km = 120.2 miles
Fri Feb 3 16:06:24 CST 2012 17.84 KM
Fri Feb 3 11:46:21 CST 2012 59.32 KM
Fri Feb 3 10:41:20 CST 2012 36.54 KM
Fri Feb 3 06:46:54 CST 2012 97.12 KM
= 210.82 KM = 130.9 miles

I wish I could see what I did within a week in the My Dashboard section. But I have been doing the same route everyday 5 days a week for the last 4 years.

I think this is supposed to be a one-time bonus, so that's interesting.

Did you maybe not get credit for it the first time?

I see this for other bonus candies, that if for example you are not connected to the network at the time. It appears that the bonus needs to be registered as "eaten" at the time it is, and is not stored for upload later.

Maybe not... it did show up twice I remember that, but the wording for the bonus is "Drive 500 miles within a week" not something like "First 500 miles driven within a week". All the other one time bonuses have the word "First" in them, so if driving doesn't have a reoccuring bonus but map editing does then that is uncool.

I don't often drive more than 500 miles in a week, so I can't say for sure this is a "First" bonus as well. The map editing bonus is only in place to even out the points for driving vs. map editing. If one were to only drive, as some long-haul truckers who use Waze do, you can rack up some serious points from miles driven. Sitting at home in the evening, you can't get as many points for time spent, yet are likely affecting the map in many positive ways, connecting streets and adjusting intersections so that areas are actually routable. Something which driving alone cannot do. The bonus is to make up for "lost points" in that regard.
