I'm going to speak out against this. I recognise that there's no change in the points earned from editing. However I really liked this element of Waze.
It provides some entertainment value and makes it seem like Waze has a "lighter" side. It also gives a secondary non-tangible reward: my first reward for editing is seeing a badly mapped area cleaned up, but the second is getting those candies the following day.
Finally, you have upset my kids, who like it when the candies appear. Direct quote from the youngest: "No, I want to keep the candies!".
With reference to your reasons given:
2) there should be more achievements that are not
3) if it's buggy fix it
, don't get rid of it.
As discussed extensively elsewhere, we should be adding achievements for drivers, rather than removing achievements for editors (yes, I haven't forgotten there's no change in points earned).Also
having taken ages to type (as usual
) I see Alan has commented before me - and I agree with that one as well.
