I have fallen into the Waze map madness! Im in Huntington, WV and have been noticing all the map "issues" like roads being marked one way or whatever and other little things that I have been taking care of. I got the point load when I turned my waze back on and the little candies were popping up. My wife said why are you driving down this road? I showed her my phone and said I have to go get this candy.

:lol:

You get bonus points for edits, so when I do get in the car, I have bonuses for 1, 2, or even 3 weeks worth of edits waiting out there for me! Every 500 edits gives you a bonus candy. So I tend to either be at the top of the scoreboard for my state or somewhere at the bottom.


Ok great! Thanks! Like I said above I started editing myself and I have already caught the wrath from my wife! Hahaha! She said ok youve been looking at stupid maps for over an hour is it really that interesting? :lol:

They are physical candies that pop up on the map and you have to drive over them... HOWEVER, they don't show up at the point of the edit, just along your route (and if you don't drive over them, they will reappear later)



The candies always appear around holidays, so I'm sure there'll be another update out shortly with the pumpkin / turkey / candy cane candies!

"Candies"? What is this "candies popping up" you speak of? Sorry, I'm a noob so I'm still learning the points system but there's very little info out there about points (or least, that I could find on the wiki). For example, I didn't know you could get points by commenting on traffic updates.

Good to know, I was under the impression that the points would be gone forever if you don't run them over in a certain time frame.
