I think that is the bottom-line problem. I don't think that any of the active participants around here care too much about points and rankings, but it's the activities of those who seem to care about those that can really wreak havoc.

In this "age of the geek" we are considered the avant-garde, it seems. Sexy even? Be prepared to find groupies on your doorstep next year! :lol:

Careful. Some of us have Facebook accounts because we have kids.

:shock: my intention was never to be seen that way fvwazing.

True, but waze champs are supposed to be mentors (or close to it). If i had a problem with a map, i would ask a champ about it.

fvwazing wrote: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.


I am not sure if waze champs have the chance to check someone's history. But if you check my edits, you will see that i have finished a lot of cities, properly. Also, i made a thread for all of them and i have asked people to report errors so we can get the most accurate thing possible. I do regularly help people and guide them in the latin american subforums, you can check them out to make sure. I mean, i do believe in teamwork.

fvwazing wrote: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.


can you picture it when there are no maps to edit? what will newcomers do? delete the current ones? In my hs/college times, i used to play a lot of online games. There were games that i got the chance to try since the very beggining and there was a common thing, which was it turns into a ranking thing after a few years and none cares about the good things of it anymore. Hackers get to take a big place in the community and finally get you to quit because you cant stand it anymore.

fvwazing wrote: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.


i cant help but feel annoyed about this. First off, my employees got nothing to do with waze, and as extra info, they get treated properly. I do even treat you the same way how i do treat a newcomer. I cant careless about your waze champ status (even though i respect a lot to champs who guided me at the beggining of my waze adventure) and this is not up to you to decide if i am champ material or not. You can ask any country manager in Central/South America about how many roads i made in order to connect more than 4 countries (4000+ kms) and i got absolutly no point for doing so. I made roads in Argentina to connect the North and the South, and i got no points for it. Guess what? that will help people to route in Latin America from country to country when they couldnt do it before. I am not asking for someone to thank me, just did bring it up because of what you said. Ask support to check my points history, 3 weeks ago, i was lucky if i did break the 30k mark per week.

That said, and before i move on. I wanted to tell you that i find it super unfair to get judged the way you did. Moreover, seeing that you are champ, you are supposed to guide me if you think that i am wrong. Now, it is true, i did promote ET, but in a good way. Excuse me, but if it will take me 2 hours to click every segment just to change the name, when i could do the same on ET in 20-30 mins at the same quality, then yes, i am going to use ET. If it comes to promoting ET in order to make points with no quality, then i dont promote it.

Finally, my ideas about the ranking were never intended to abuse it. I think of how it is going to be in 2-3 years from now, and i see everything related to points. wwwnnnado is a search engine (advertising). So you can see how the ranking is becoming spammed. If it was up to me, there should be no ranking because it is not any good. Anyways, going to back to edit. Working on an island which i do regularly visit on holidays.

No: edits had to be saved one at a time. Adjust the geometry of one segment, save. Change a street name*, save. Add a new segment, save. Add a junction to connect the new segment to an existing segment, save.

    * Cities & street names were one of the few things you could change for more than one segment at a time. But it was unreliable. Speaking of unreliable, alt names would be discarded upon changing a segment's geometry.

Each save took a couple seconds at least; ~15 seconds when it got busy, and would take the editor offline for a minute or more when the database was down. It forced you to take time and think about what you were doing, and make every edit count. Nobody who was only interested in the points stuck around long enough to do much damage.

I know, I was there ;-)
None of this easy roundabout stuff they have now.
Most of the people here don't know what they've missed...

Enhket, I am sorry I lashed out to you at the end of my post. It shows that it is dangerous to base an opinion on a very small number of posts in the forum, but that is no excuse. I know now that you are an active member on the forum in your country and that you did way more than using ET. Again, I am sorry. I know I can have a pointy pen when I feel driven and this time it pointed at you.

However... my aversion against ET still stands.

I can't remember that I ever did 2 hours of clicking on every segment just to change the name. It just isn't worth to spend two hours on. It does nothing for the map. Yes, technically, you touch the segments and fill in one of many attributes - the cityname. But to show the name on the map it is enough if a handful of streets have the cityname. If the 2 hours are a waste - so is the 2 minutes with ET. The only reason it may look attractive is that it brings 60 times the number of points per minute.

Last time I used ET for selecting segments was another case. In borderregions two or three basemaps can overlap, and that results in streets that are exactly on top of each other but are from different countries. It can take 10-15 steps to tear such streets apart and delete the wrong one.I spend weeks doing just that with cartouche. Now, with ET, I can select the segments from one country and delete them. There is a big improvement in the map when doing that, and that justifies the use of ET. (By the way: I did not get lucky with the current available versions of ET - it simply did not work, had to use the Highlighter again).

Other than the damage of this map can not be named. His rank editing 1. He probably did not even edit the map. But gets a day to 250000 points.

It's automatic created segments from Google maps
