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:


Think I may have brought it up somewhere before :? We may all may be future members of Wazeaholicsdotcom some day :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.

How are points calculated?

You receive a different number of points for each activity as listed in the tables below. Note that the number of points you get for distance related activities is different when measured in miles and in kilometers. In effect you get the same points, the table just shows you the translation of the two measurements system.
Activity Points Unit
Road reporting1 6 per report
Report comments 3 per comment
Editing the map2 1.5 per edit3
Solving map update requests 3 per request solved
Adding street names 3 per name
Adding house numbers4 3 per house number
Forum posts 2 per 3 forum posts
