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

As much as this doesn't help Waze, it's pretty interesting to see how airplanes travel on the runway of the airport. You can see how the planes come and go on the runway as well.

Yeah, I've got a guy that 3-4 times a day, marks a cop, object in road, vehicle on the side of the road, and a traffic jam in front of his house. He does it in the morning, before and after lunch, and then when he gets home.

I've commented a few times, telling him to stop reporting non-existant items, but it does no good. Not much can be done about this.

There's an employee at MSY who paves roads all over the Tarmac. He must be a baggage handler or something like that.

The main concern is the damage that can be done by cheating here. The senior editors are now spending more time scrutinizing the edits of newer users than we are editing.

Without special tools, it can be difficult to distinguish between an abuser and someone who has a lot of time on their hands and does a lot of editing. Sometimes it's pretty blatant and in that case, it gets handled by the Administrators pretty quickly.

I wouldn't be too concerned about a person getting too many points for reporting hazards. The number of points you get from them is insignificant and after you've reported a few in a short period of time, you don't get any more points for them. If the hazard is legitimate, it shouldn't be a problem.

I have often wondered how some users can generate a huge amount (say 20000 - 50000) points a week. I always have waze on and travel c 30,000 miles per year and have mapped out most of the towns in NE Scotland over the last year and a half but never generated anything close to those sort of points. Recently I have seen several users fly past me in the points rankings, they cant all be country managers.
On average I reckon I have averaged about 20,000 points per month what do you need to do to generate that or more in a week, which seems to be quite common?

Lots of free time ;)

But experienced editors can make, let me say 500-1000 edits in an hour during regular editting. 500-1000 edits delivers you also 1 or 2 candies of 750 points. So 1 hour of editting brings 1250-2500 points.

So if you are editting 8 hours a day, yes there are people doing that, brings you 10.000-20000 points a day.

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 ;)
