Wat word dan gezien als "edit" en wat als "change"

So does it meant 750. Points for every 500 map edits?

If edits aren't processed right away by the server, they may be queued up and a couple days processed all at once, which would give you more than expected number of candies for only a day's editing. Usually, they are pretty reliable in daily processing. I can do edits at work during lunch and get 1-2 candies as soon as I leave for home 4 hours later.


I'm aware that changes are different than the counter on the editor, and I thought I was pretty good at estimating changes by counting multiple segments when mass editing. But sometimes when I expect 3-4 candies I get only one during a trip and the rest will pop up on a later drive that same day or the next day. Other times they all come at once. The mechanism for when candies are given out is mysterious, regardless of how many are due.

Right now I could be backed up a little bit on candies; since the last Android release I've had an issue where my icon will face a random direction at an intersection while I'm stopped and often that's when they decide to give out a candy. It'll pop up on the wrong road! Then when I miss it I won't get any more for the rest of the drive. It's such a common occurrence that I'm beginning to suspect the client secretly hates giving me candy. :lol:

Stop the client and restart it ... that candy should return (at least at the next intersection). Also, a way to avoid that happening is to use navigation mode. As long as you stay on the prescribed path, you shouldn't miss any candy (because regardless of which way your car icon might be facing, the candy will always be placed on the navigated route, at least as far as I've seen).

I've done that (restarting) and sometimes it works, but other times it's a half hour or more before the candy reappears. If my drive is short enough it doesn't show up again at all until the next long drive.

I'll give navigation mode a shot. It never once navigated me anywhere properly in my own area so I quit using it. I know where I'm going all the time here anyway! Of course that was before I had editing rights and became an area manager, so things should be a little more tidy now. ;)

I actually not received any candy in quite some time. Even some of the candy that I should have gotten as bonus points I haven't got.I drive 400 + miles a day is that kind of thing normal

If you don't edit you won't get candy unless you're in top 3 Wazer in your country or finish the goals in the candy reward list.

I recently got "report 1st map problem" candy, the last one missing. Seems they finally fixed this one too.

if it looks strange, it's my phone's fault

65 mph is “nothing” when one lives in Germany, but I do agree your point ;-) It’s a good policy.
