Not true. I saved over 300 candies when I was on vacation and after that, until shirli cancelled them, I was still looting them. They didnt expire and didnt get added to your total by the end of the week. We had a post about this with jason in the champs forum and I guess it is still there. Also, you lose points. Marcelo had lost tje equivalent to 100 candies in points when he looted candies and the system didnt add them to the total. I think Adrian recognized that issue too.

1. To get a candy you have to be more than a hit and run editor
2. 99% of my driving is highway. Candys don't appear at highway speeds or junctions, so I could easily be 15 candies behind what I should actually get. I'm not gonna do circles around the block burning gas to get those.
3. I'd rather be expecting 1-2 candies for a ton of edits than 15 candies for fewer edits, which I likely won't be able to pick up anyways because as I said my drive is mostly highway.


That's true. I think one of the biggest problems for the hardcore-map-editors was the candy system. I know a few of them that had to even stop editing just to keep picking up candies for a week or two. In a way, the new system would be far more "just", but it could also be seen as "not-as-fun-as-before". After all, I think everyone loved eating a candy on their daily commute.

I'm not doing any future editing until the points update. I did roughly 2500 edits yesterday before I realized there was another issue. The last time this happened I never did get the bonus candies for more than 3000+ edits.

Hey Wazers!
This is my first post and I gotta say that I drive a lot. Having newly discovered Waze has made driving around a ton more fun!

I decided to start map editing because there are a lot of newer roads and incorrect junctions in my area and I'm tired of being told to make a U-turn where one is not allowed. It's not only appealing to fix these issues for my purpose and others as well, but it makes it worth it when you spend all the TIME it takes to help and correct these MAP ERRORS by being rewarded with points and CaNdIeS.
Lowering the amount of points I receive for spending all this time editing is UNFAIR especially when Waze tells you that we are the unofficial support staff for the most up to date gps map you can finD. AANNDD DON'T take away my Wazer's candy...that lil guy loves his candy!! Plus those candies and ability to earn you way to a shield, sword, or a Crown; it gives driving and navigating a fun twist.
Come on WAZE...if you really want to be hands down the top gps navigation in the world why not offer more incentives and perks and CANDIES to users for editing, problem solving, and contributing to this amazing Navigation tool?????????
We are a GREAT team and I'm not asking for any money. Just more Candies, points, bonuses, and APPRECIATION for the hard work/time I and other amazing map editors on WAZE put in to make the experience BETTER. Please DONT take away incentives!

YOU ARE STILL THE GREATEST WAZE, making a Traffic Jam exciting!

Thank you for reading to my POST! -memorgan1

I can't tell how many, just that they aren't all. I've edited daily and the restored points covers from my point of view only 3-4 days. As you said this is very subjective, but now the difference is quite big.

How can you tell for how many edits you are missing points? They are counted just on the Dashboard and an estimate from the editing sessions is usually very subjective.
