I propose that, much like a golfer surrenders his handicap when he becomes professional, Champs and CMs should surrender their leaderboard placing. Keep the points in case they do one day turn into prizes but is there really any need for our points tallies to be there for all to feel intimidated by?

Talk about a comeback, but very well put :-)
You've either got the right stuff or not, and as you said, elitism just won't cut it here.
Points stopped bothering me after I had finished editing the island I live on which took around a month.
Yeah it got me a lot of points but I was more thinking "this will actually stop giving me crap instructions and help others out too". Coming from OSM helped with the community spirit, so it's in my blood so to speak.

But you either got it, or you haven't. And if you haven't, you'll become addicted enough that you do.

True, they won't be happy about catching up, but you spent 2-3 years of your time here, aren't they (at least) supposed to spend the same amount of time in order to catch you up?


This is disturbing. It is disturbing in so many ways, I do not know where to start.

[takes a deep breath]

First off: in my opinion, everybody deserves equal chances, equal points.
Second: I do not KNOW if the quality of my editing is better. Given that I do not know the area where I am editing (apart from the mainstreets, maybe) local editors - even if they are newcomers - know details that no amount of research could bring to me.
Third: even if I do a lot of things better than a newcomer I screw up parts of the map, regularly. Even if I am 99% right most of the time - I make dozens of errors per day. Fixing my own errors, coming back after a few weeks and collect the URs is an important part of the work.
Fourth: As there are more and more newcomers it is a growing effort to correct their errors - and give feedback to those newcomers, mentor them, make them better. Only that way they will stop doing it wrong, they will make less errors, they will start to correct each other. What is more effective: you, alone, battling against 100 newcomers or you and a handfull of dedicated editors helping the ones that are not that far? As long as an editor does it right MOST of the time the quality of the map improves.
Fifth: This is a game. A game is not a battle. In a game it is important that all participants are happy. I cannot shrug and think it is okay if the majority of editors are unhappy. Remember, we need a LOT of editors.
Sixth: I do not really care how long a Wazer is wazing. After *some* time, after participating in the forum, most of the rules are known to them and they are partners.


Most of all I find your opening remark ("that is how it is in real life, is not it?") hard to swallow. This may get personal, but if all your remarks reflect your stance in life it gives me the impression that you are a careerist, someone who measures the value of others (be it colleagues in your work or co-players in Waze) by the amount of wealth/points they collected. I myself try to see the opportunities, the chances, the potential in people.

To me, this shows that you are no champs-material, enhket.

you can if you sum up candies points + editing. Editing from 8am-to 3am. You can get up to 17k only from candies if you do that. Thats extreme and i think you can get 150k (weekly) from such practices. All of this with ET, obviously. Also, you arent considering that there are people who got private scripts which will create a junction everytime that 2 segments cross (i think there was a youtube video about it) in order to speed up building places. that aside, the most of people focus on ET only, and i think that there are a few scripts that none knows and speed up the editing experience a lot. that is why i say that the problem is not ET or scripts, it is the ranking.

edit: you are right, i hope they do have a back up. picture the italian issue happening in the world :?

The simple fact is, no-one editing/driving gets 100,000 points in a week using Waze. It's damn near impossible.
When I was unemployed, I was editing near on 12 hours a day and I didn't come close to that amount. 65-70k I think, maybe a little bit more. It is 100% impossible to earn 100k in a day unless you have some system set up, but what the hell for? Seriously!

It's one thing to cheat a system, but when it does nothing for your social or monetary standing, what is the point?!

Until Waze do something about it, I think we should just quit bitching. It's their product at the end of the day that will be ruined when people become L5 editors in a matter of days and delete entire countries.

Let's hope they have a backup!

I also think that it is wrong, when the novice receives 475838 points for two weeks from the date of his first meeting with the Wase. I am for the first 1.5 years received fewer points than he had in two weeks.

He rode the train only 500 kilometers per day. And in the dashboard added 4000 kilometers for the day. And points enrolled for 4000 kilometers.

The man who in second place this week said that he passed yesterday by railroad with the included 500 kilometers of bulldozer. An error has occurred, and instead he counted 500 kilometers 4000 kilometers of new roads. 4000 multiplied by 40 we get 160000 points. Receiving 160,000 points per day, he came in second week :)
