How is it possible to get more than 30,000 points in a week?

Here in Sweden we have some that we recognize from map editing and the community, they rarely come up in such high scores. But a few "new" users will appear in over 30,000 points in a week.
I'm using Samsung Galaxy S6 Android 6.0.1 Swedish and the latest Waze version.

It's just a temporary glitch in the scoreboard, and can be ignored: viewtopic.php?f=18&t=34160

It most likely is the issue Timbones mentioned but it's not hard to hit 30k points in a week from editing. Even in well established areas there are reverse connectivity errors galore and other problems to be fixed. It can be a challenge to do it every week, but it isn't that hard.

Depends on how much time you have... I worked night shifts during Christmas. Most of the 4 nights I was able to spent at least 5 hours editing. Together with a few hours yesterday and about 400 kms of driving, I am at 22k now for the week...

I have a lot of free time at work and if I am not distracted by phone calls, youtube, movies or other things and can dedicate ~7 hours a day 5 days a week I can get 60,000 - 70,000 points a week easy. Lately I have had other things on my plate where Waze has taken the back burner, but it can be done.

Actually it's quite impressive to see that it's holiday time: In almost every country the editors are doing more work and therefore getting more points than two weeks ago.

Guys, but there other users in your country who don't like you getting so many points in a week( good work done and not for the just gaining points) so they lodge a ticket or contact the Waze team directly and complaint about it, Waze team block such good users for at least 2 weeks, after begging to them, then they give you editing permissions back.

I myself have come across such situations 2-3 times. This is very frustrating at times.

Not if your edits are legitimate and within accordance with the editing guidelines for your country. I regularly get over 30k a week and occasionally top 50k and have never been suspended, or even threatened with it. In fact the only editor I know of who got suspended (though I have heard of references to others here in the threads) was ignoring the editing guidelines and repeated attempts by me as well as other local AM's to start following the guidelines.

Also keep participating in the forums. Waze staff don't participate much here but they do observe and if they recognize you from the forums they are more likely to give you the benefit of the doubt than they are someone with over 100k edits but only 19 posts in the forums. That lack of forum activity is not proof of bad editing but does indicate a possibility of not really engaging with the community to ensure you understand the standards and guidelines.

Hi daknife,

Thanks for the explanation.
I know I am very less active on th forum the reason behind this is I was not aware of the forum in first place, secondly was not comfortable with the functions of the forum.
I know users who could or have knowledge about how to directly contact me through PM for there concern regarding my editing, but prefer to go to Waze team directly and they have suspended me without any explanation. Then I had to begged for the editing rights and the explanation for the suspension.

Was I suspended because I was not active on forum but busy in good editing practice and making my country user friendly driving experience, or it's some kind of politics going on about giving some users preferences than other users.? I really don't know.

I am very much active on other social forums and websites and clearly know what is called sense of social responsibility.
