Candy

Postby invented » Mon Mar 19, 2012 7:23 am

Since I contribute heavily to the Waze community (like over 30,000 pts in 8 days), I regularly get 750 candy popping up on my screen. However, sometimes it pops up when I load the client sitting at home or something, when I can't just go out and drive for it. When I go for my next drive, the candy is gone. Sometime later, new candy appears. Does the client ensure that all candy due to a user is successfully delivered at some time?

Yes, and they will pop up on the navigation line if active at the time. And only when driving slow. For some reason they will not appear when driving at high speeds like on a Freeway.

That's because the candy pop-up is triggered by starting again after coming to a complete stop (where the speedometer on Waze reads zero -- may take a few seconds of sitting at the stop sign or light before it gets to zero). Once you start moving again (to establish which direction you're headed), the candy will then appear at the next junction between segments. :)

Maybe for the reason that Waze should not and does not want to distract you when you are driving 65 mph?

They could use that same logic for the goodies during holidays/promotions also though. I agree with you, that is probably the reason. Just a little lopsided in the implementation of two very similar features.

Yes, lopsided. Although that shouldn't surprise anyone familiar with how Waze does things ;)

LOL

There are some rare occurrences when I get them on a freeway, but it's definitely not normal.

I haven't seen any candy/goodies on the road at all in over a month (and yes I have them enabled in the app). I was not sure what was going on if they disabled them on the server for whatever reason or if other users were having the same issue.

I saw on one of the youtube videos that they said the purpose of the goodies are to get users to drive over those areas of the map where there's not enough info or a map problem and that way it will get updated on the Waze servers http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GZPnN1zDtZg (watch about 6 minutes or so into the video where she talks about it)

Some goodies will possibly appear shortly prior to Easter. Otherwise, after useing up all candies from your Scoreboard page (be it https://world.waze.com/dashboard/scoreboard/ or https://www.waze.com/dashboard/scoreboard/), you will only get Editing candies (750) whenever you will do enough map editing.

I've personally not seen any candies on my Symbian client's screen (at least in their usual/old form Image, using the "candy01.png" file on my client) since sometimes in November, when some graphical tweaks happened - maybe because their new form changed into something like Image and my client did not receive necessary icon files? I'm able to see just a tiny black rectangle on roads, which gets crunched afterwards (the golden pacman).

Does the recent editing candy look like Image this? Does anyone know the file name the recent clients are using for candies?
