Aside from the comment they are going to create a different "competition" between editors. Hopefully it will not entice editors to cheat to get points. :evil:


Well, that was the obvious intention, but nothing else has been done, and that's over a month ago.

Thanks for the direct link. I know we're supposed to be above being competitive or whatever, but dangit, it's as much a game to me as it is a useful tool. Seeing my points go up is motivation for me to keep plugging away at making things better.

I can't see the scoreboard on my phone. Tapping that crashes Waze. Has been like that for a while now, and it's probably somehow related to popup ads crashing Waze as well. So not having access to my points except through the editor has been kind of a bummer.

I'm excited to see what the new goodies are all about, but if they're global, fat chance of me ever winning anything. I'm not even first in my state each week any more. 8-)

Absolutely - no display and, therefore, completely un-clickable.

Just out of curiosity then, is it simply hidden for you guys? If I right-click on My Dashboard and "View Source", I see this at line 158:
Code: Select all
<a href="scoreboard" id="scoreboard" style="display:none;">View waze scoreboard</a>

We only lost the GPS layer yesterday. We've been missing the scoreboard link for almost a month. And it seems that they did that intentionally, although we haven't really gotten a detailed explanation.

I think the missing scoreboard link might be related to other problems posted here. It all happened about the same time the NA server lost the GPS layer.

The link is still there in the source HTML for the page, but it has the style attribute set to "display:none" - not sure why. The link for your scoreboard is here (that's the link for My Dashboard with "/scoreboard" tacked on the end). You can go there and then add it to your favourites.

AlanOfTheBerg has posted elsewhere in that thread that the problems have been reported to Waze. So far, I am not aware of any response or acknowledgment of the problems.

Don't have a big issue with this, not especially a gamer myself, but I wish I understood the reason for the change. Was there a problem with the local competition? Why does a worldwide "Top Three" competition make sense?

Use your browser on computer or phone, not within Waze. Save the favorite there.
