You don't get points for reporting nonexistent cameras, only for confirming or deleting them, which the people reporting them never do. And chit chats haven't earned points for over a year.
Hitting "Yes" to confirm that the prices are correct is easier than typing in four prices, but not so much easier that doing it is only worth a fraction of the points awarded to the first person to report the prices.
Here's what I meant regarding fairness: You and I drive the same route, and you stop at all five gas stations on the way, pause next to the pumps to get every price, and post them. You get 40 points. I come along 30 minutes or three hours later, and do exactly the same thing, except I hit Yes each time after confirming that every price you entered was correct, but I get less than 40 points. Why should I earn less than you did? I did the same amount of work--and the prices are now fresher--so I should get just as much as you did. 40 points might not seem like a lot to either of us now, but if I'm relatively new and 40 points away from the next level, and still waiting at the end of the day, that's disappointing.
And in case anyone thinks I'm arguing so that I can keep earning points for confirming other people's prices, I don't report gas prices unless I'm testing the feature in the beta, so the number of points awarded for any form of gas price reporting is meaningless to me. But fairness means something.
