I've/We've suggested a combination of altitude and speed as criteria for discarding this data.

And when done repeatedly, disable the user's account. :)

You can either open a ticket or let a Waze Champ know.

I already reported somebody else that has done the same thing. In fact this person was doing it to get points. He thought it was the best / fastest way to get points. So if you see this make sure you report it!!!!

Paving streaks are due to loss of cell-reception

I received a reply from the nanoRep. The nanoRep said, "it's not a case of using an aircraft, but rather a loss of cell-reception." They are going to contact the user about it.

I often wonder how new users climb up the ranks so quickly. I guess flying in paving mode could do it. It isn't the points that bothers me as much as the user not gaining any real editing experience through points not legitimately earned. An inexperienced user with a lot of points is dangerous.

Paving by Air

Postby TruckOttr » Tue Dec 11, 2012 2:37 am

I noticed what I thought was a "Nazca" line earlier today. Following the trace though, I realized that a Wazer had decided to fly from one municipal airport to another with the paving mode on. From taxiing onto the runway, to take off, cross country, landing at another airport, taxiing and parking the plane, they had paved the entire route. There were dropoffs where network coverage was spotty, but overall, I could see the entire trip.

Needless to say, I deleted them all and sent a PM to the user.

Someone got a lot of points. :(
