Infrastructure team is merging the server from Israel. So, people who got 500k points there appears with 500k now (they were added to the INTL server today).

I think Christopher has it right. In last week's UK scoreboard there is a "villian.il" user in 7th position, down by 7 - which would previously have put them above 1st!

The only thing that confuses me is that I'm sure we had a similar situation a few weeks ago, where Israeli users were appearing. I thought they were merging users then - or maybe I'm just confused. :? :lol: Anyway, they all disappeared again after a few days.

I have to say I feel sorry for the IL users: they were getting updates every two days as regular as clockwork, long before the US servers were migrated to the "new infrastructure". I just hope our migration gets finished soon to make the newcomers (and us) happy! ;)

You are probably seeing their total scores as being allotted to the weekly scoreboard now. It should probably settle down after a week of mayhem.

Maybe I'm getting old and useless but does anyone want to explain how the hell some of these people are getting over 500,000 points in a week.
Most of us serious editors don't even get anywhere near that.
aydenva has 949k points this week. Yeah right...
Don't recognise a single name in the top names anymore.

OK that all makes sense, they've a year or two ahead of us. Still, Waze has the most complete maps for Israel. How would you get that kinda points updating something that's basically done?
