I'm pretty sure the Map Editing Interface and Controls page notes the difference between changes and edits. Also the Ranking and Points (or Rank and Points) page has similar info.

Number of changes in the editor (the number you see on the save button) does not equal number of edits!

You can find more information by asking that in the automated system at waze.com/support but basically it's number of times an object is edited irrespective of the number of actions performed on it.

As mentioned, the number of edits on the edit counter is not equal to the number of edit points gained.
The release notes for the current 'flavour' of WME was announced here :
http://www.waze.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=10&t=34860#p319704.
This is where the number of points per edit was changed from previous releases due to an increased abuse of the editing system. There was also a 150 point limit placed on points gained per single save while using bulk-editing tools if I understood correctly.

How do we count edits for points and editing-ranks (those you see in the dashboard)?
we count the number of objects that have been edited within one "Save".
An object can be count only once in 24 hours.

That means that a user who used ET to edit a city containing 1000 segments, then selected again the same city -and had saved again - will be credited for 150 edits only.

What's an object?
segment
node
landmark
camera
update request
map problem
city (create new)
street (create new)

Map Edits not counting properly

Postby RecklessFire » Wed May 01, 2013 3:35 pm

(Yesterday morning, I saw this:)
662 Map Updates on My Dashboard "Rank, last updated: 4.29.2013, 22:46"

(Then I edited and made these saves:)
+~35, 4/30, ~925a.cst
+135, 4/30, 938a.cst
+111, 4/30, 959a.cst
+136, 4/30, 1014a.cst
+100, 4/30, 1023a.cst
+86, 4/30, 1033a.cst
=1265

(Today, I see this:)
919 Map Updates on My Dashboard "Rank, last updated: 4.30.2013, 22:50"

???

I'd suspected that it did this before, which is why I was recording the number of edits I was saving. Has anyone else noticed this?

Understandable, but then how is "number of edits" (which would equal Map Updates on the dashboard) defined?

Definition of a Map Update as separate from Unsaved Changes is not explicitly called out on the Wiki, at least not that came up in response to a number of searches. That is why I am asking here.

** New post created while I was writing that provides the answer I was seeking. Thank you.
