And stars go away in Waze 3. So I wouldn't worry about them.

:) Hi gettingthere, I will still have my stars since I have a WM phone. I won't be able to use WAZE 3. Thanks for the info.

does it mean the star will be faded out in the future?

It's better to burn out, than to fade away........

As I said, they are already gone in Waze 3. They serve no purpose anyway. Points and number of edits are the most meaningful :D

I have people driving all around me in my area with a sword with 4k points, or a shield with 2k points. I am a few points away from 5k points, but I don' have a sword or shield. Really confusing!

I feel like it would be more fun if I knew what I was working towards....

Thanks for everyone's help! :geek:

They might be from another state/country where the threshold is lower.

The Me tab on your client scoreboard (or here) should tell you how many points you need to get to the next level. (At least it used to). I would not trust the information on the client for other wazers that you get by tapping on them as I have seen all sorts of scores and join dates that make no sense at all based on the icon. The name seems to be right The number of points is based on some percentage of Wazers in your state and recomputed monthly.

Indeed, it is! The clients' points count seems to (sometimes considerably! also in my case, it was nearly -70% and -1 star :)) lag behind what Dashboard/Scoreboard say. Possibly the server fails to deliver enough candies, cookies, munchies, sweeties, pumpkies, scaries and other goodies to theclient, to sync their internal points values only by such flawed way...

In addition to differing points, the names also often do differ (as they are chosen separately for login+scoreboard and client), sometimes also do the registration dates. Only the position rank seems to match between the client and server (at least I've not found an exception, which I can not rule out).

I was told that reinstalling the client seems to sync the client points with server. But noone is expected to do this repeatedly :roll:

I have noticed that the registration dates are displayed modulo 1 year. That means if the user is displayed as registered 3 months ago, this may mean 3 months ago but also 1 year and 3 months ago, 2 years and 3 months ago, and so on.
