The concept of giving map editors so much points is really flawed, to me.
I feel it is UNFAIR that map editing account for that much points. There are people who aren't always on their computers, they have a busy(actual) life, and reporting road hazards, police, closures, etc is well enough for their contribution, to help others. Not spending 12/7 on Waze.com map editing to spend that free time.
Obviously, editing map should be a thankful/appreciative task, I do not disagree with this, but maybe getting a honor badge that's called "Major Map Editor" (or something more creative) is suffice rather than give them the MOST points everytime they edit maps, that makes them beat those who actually drive/report traffic to get points..
Most points should ALWAYS BELONG ON THE ROAD, AMONG REAL TRAFFIC, not ever on the computer in a basement, ALONE!
