You do. You get 5 pts/mile vs. 1.5 pts/edit.

However, getting a million points in a year driving you would have to drive 548 miles/day 365 days/Yr.

Seems almost impossible to me :)

I think that Foxo just pointed out that Waze penetration outside of metro-areas is still very low. several reasons:

* in rural areas the traffic is usually not that high (comparing to the city), so the main benefit of waze is getting less important. also there are less options for alternative routes in small cities and also domestic drivers knows small towns good enough to deal with actual situation.

* waze miss some basic functions when comparing to other satnavs - missing house numbers, PoIs, offline mode. and that's why many poeple use competitor's products (tomtom, navigon, garmin, sygic...)

* waze map is improving rapidly in cities first, rural areas improve slower. many users quit using waze after first try just because map condition was bad. gladly map is being improved all the time allowing user community to grow faster. also map condition in rural areas is very good these days in my country.


so either there will become troubles with traffic also in smaller towns or waze will improve features (devs) and reliability (map editors community) to get higher penetration outside metro areas.

As editors and users we all contribute to the waze community and "lifestyle" seems to be the wrong attribute to consider. (IMO)
If not for the original developers, programmers and beta testers and the continuing volunteer Champs, Wiki Managers, Country Managers, Area Managers, Beta Testers and editors, would we even have an app, or would the app be as well managed?
We should consider the time and knowledgeable resources and expertise that is contributed by both the users and the editors.
Volunteer managers and editors come from all lifestyles and backgrounds, to believe that they only sit in front of a computer all day is somewhat presumptuous at best.
It is best stated that these individuals have good work ethic and good values, as it not only takes a commitment to edit but the commitment to edit properly and study the ever changing aspects of the editing practice.
I am not devaluing the contributions of the user, they are an important part of the waze community but do feel a need to express the value of the contributions of the editors and those who manage it.

Most places it's now based on Quality, experience and community function.

When I calculate back what I did I get this list:

Editing: 443943 points

Driving: 362960 points

Forum: 3196 points

And I must say, I really don't drive a lot! (at least, waze is not recording a lot :P )
So I realy think it should be possible to catch a high level editor by just driving.

Well... I think with driving you do get more points then with editing.

I think if you drive a lot, you can get a million points in a year.

No editor has done that yet.
Also, if your country has no basemap it's even easier to get points.

If RoadPaPa comes through AZ which he does once and awhile he makes a killer score just driving, beats my editing.
