I think that there could be delay in updating scores. Was online connectivity always available while you were driving using Waze?

Cheat!!

Runways would be similar to railroads in that they could appear but not be usable/routable. I could easily tell where an airport is as a landmark by the shape of the runways.

marking URs fixed when not, repeatedly making unnecessary changes, etc.

That's just some iPhone user that #1 ignores instructions to actually power off all your electronics, and #2 hasn't figured out since the middle of 2010 that pressing the home button doesn't close apps that can run in the background.

Keep in mind these points are just points. Edit the map to improve it, not for worthless points. That gives you a much better feeling ;)

There is always someone who will do this, no matter what you try to implement.

Just keep working and you will know that you deserve your points because you worked to earn them :)

Perhaps users could report abusers and points could be deleted. That would solve the problem.

I suppose it depends on what you mean by cheat. I see user tracks all the time which have clearly been generated while sitting on a train. I see users report minor potholes etc (one regular user leaves a little trail behind them all the time.) there used to be users who would ping many times (fortunately that no longer gets points). As for editing I can see a large number of ways of cheating - marking URs fixed when not, repeatedly making unnecessary changes, etc. At the end of the day we have to rely on trust.

Don't get me wrong I think all of the above are cheating and if I had my way such users would be banned.

Pretty sure that doesn't actually happen! :roll:
