I missed those candies that we had for one festival season if not mistaken for Christmas. I remember the snow flakes, cane candy related to Christmas which I purposely drive to get it near where I stay. It was fun driving around munching snow flakes. Hope this coming Christmas to have those. :D

I'll miss the candies !
Made me feel happy in the morning while driving to work and I always knew, how many edits I made approximately the night before ...

But if you're not able to fix that bug ......
Bye bye little candies

I also disagree with removing the candies. I use that to get an idea of how much editing I have done without having to wait for the dashboard to update. I also think they are "fun" to see. I don't really care that the points remain the same... the effect is lost if you remove the bonuses. As others have said, I think these need to remain and I think we need more recurring bonuses and more one-time bonuses. Currently, the only bonuses you're like to ever see after your first month using Waze are the editing candies. You're likely to have already gotten almost all of the achievements within that first month and then what's the point? We need more rather than less. And I like the idea of seasonal events and holiday events (these can vary from country to country for holidays that may not be celebrated in some parts of the world). Basically, reasons to get out there and drive. It may not really be necessary to entice users to drive anymore as the user base increases, but it's still worthwhile. And besides, you'll likely find more users who join Waze just because they like seeing the different events. Make it fun.

but Why not getting points only with road candies ? and not directly by editing.

You edit, you collect candies. but you need to drive to get theses candies which are the only one that give you points.

(It was just a though)


That would work for most editors assuming the current candy bug is fixed, but it wouldn't really work all that well for the hardcore editors. They are unlikely to ever drive anywhere near enough to get all of their points. Even I don't always get all of my candies within my drive to/from work. I don't do a lot of editing every single day though, so I catch back up eventually. But for someone who edits a lot almost every day, they'll just continue to stack candies and never get the points. Bad enough now when they end up only getting about half of their points, but worse if that's the only way to get points.

Besides, when you do that, you devalue editing. After all, you're saying that editors only deserve points if they also drive. That really isn't fair to them. Let's say you have a stay at home parent who edits at home, but never really goes anywhere - perhaps the spouse does the shopping and such. That person wouldn't get any points. That just doesn't seem right to me.

We already get points for driving. I don't think we need to require driving to get points. However, I do think we need to keep the candies for editing and add more for driving as well. The editing candies don't necessarily have to award points. They can just be a visible and audible "thank you" for editing. I don't know. I think we should keep them, but I don't think it makes sense to get editing points automatically and leave driving points for driving.

Sorta like how they do the candies during holiday promotions, but tweaked specifically to target roads that need more speed data to help with routing.


Agreed. More candies/achievements in general, but specifically ones for roads that need data would be good. The downside to that, is that people in cities may not have many chances to get those points while those in rural areas probably can get points on almost every road simply due to fewer Waze users in the area. Unless it's based on a percentage compared to the average amount of data in the area. In that case, every area would have places where you can get points.

Yes, we have munching for some of these, but what about roads that have been driven only a few times in years? They aren't going to show up for munching, but they do need more data. This is where it would be good to add candies for driving these less traveled roads. I guess that was done in the past, but I've never seen it, so I don't think it's still being done.

Waze needs such data, however.
