Snarky comments aside,
points accumulation is hardly the primary reason for using Waze, wouldn't you agree?
Or perhaps not if you created a spreadsheet for the sole purpose of tracking them.
From another new user, my concern and frustration isn't the points (interesting and fun, but in the end who really cares?) but the fact that most of my drives over 5 km or so have not been processed by Waze, so there are large areas I want to edit and improve that I cannot since the drive(s) thru that area have never been processed. This has occurred with drives up to three weeks old, far longer than the 7 days the Waze status indicates.
The editing feature of Waze is great, but useless if I'm not given access to roads I've driven on multiple times.
