Being heavily active in the forums needs to be a condition for being any type of expert. If you're not known to the community, and accessible via the forums, you won't be able to be an effective expert.

The first time I suggested a minimum forum post requirement, I also specified that it should not be widely known that forum participation is one of the metrics, let alone a specific number of posts. Otherwise, making enough worthless posts to qualify becomes just another "game".

If the folks at Waze want to put their maps--perhaps their most valuable resource--in the hands of people according to their ability to game the system, rather than according to evaluation by other concerned parties, that's their prerogative; but it isn't a formula for success.

6 months of Waze- seniority

- These criteria do not provide automatic access to the champs' group. Each request to join the group will still be verified individually.


* Under this new reorganization, users with expertise in certain areas can apply to be "Experts".
For example "editing Experts", "Android experts", "iPhone experts", "navigation experts", "beta editor experts", "points experts", "social media experts," will now have moderator permissions over the relevant forums and their coordinators will have direct contact to relevant team members at Waze.
We're open to expanding the range of "Experts" to include any new expertise that you may have in mind.

Experts will be subject to the same entry level as local champs.

Shirli, you'll possibly have to reconsider the Experts group's entry requirements. I can imagine that otherwise you'll eventually loose loads of excellent, highly experienced "Android experts", "iPhone experts", "points experts", "social media experts" and "whateverelse experts", who drive and test and communicate a lot, but tried to edit only here-and-there and will actually never neach L4 and be allowed to apply for an Expert (except using the 'individual verification' clause).

(This is actually the same problem as with joint editors' and drivers' Scoreboard: non-editing mega drivers will not able to reach visible ranks anymore.)

That's interesting news and probably the only option in so fast growing Waze community. Let's hope that every country will have sufficient number of competent people!

Massive +1. It should be based solely on proven ability and by peers in the community who are established, not by any numbers or stats (except the edit requirement).

Perhaps a translation contact for each language set?
