That's exactly correct. And, crap!, I would have sworn this was documented in the wiki somewhere, but I am unable to find it now. Though, if you search the forum for "points edits changes" you'll find a few relevant threads with this bit of info on the first search result page.

Yes it does to a point - http://www.waze.com/wiki/index.php/Your_Rank_and_Points

Editing the map = 1.5 points per edit. So you would get 1.5 points for each of those edits.

That said, I have often wondered if I enable all junction directions at once if that counts as 1.5 in total or 1.5 per arrow on that junction. Also I suspect that if you move the shape of a road several times then save I only get 1.5 points no matter how many bits of it are move, but if I saved between each move I'd get 1.5 each time.

If you're going to edit please read the wiki before doing so. I'm guessing from your colloquial writing style that you are in the South East of England?

Read it as straight roads as opposed to bendy ones as above ;-)

This was stopped because we told Waze how people were cheating. Moving things around for points no longer works but you're welcome to waste time trying hehe :-P
Yes though 1.5 points per road edit. Junctions probably 6 if all roads were QW'd I suppose but as above there's a time frame of like half an hour before you'll get points for that same bit again.
If you're just after points, don't edit. You might not be and I don't want to put you off but many just do it for points and not for the good of the community which is sad.

Indeed. Completely agree with the above. If you're a real editor, please read the wiki, ask questions and welcome aboard. Please note, editing can be strangely addictive ;-)
