That's what candies were originally totally about. They would be placed on out-of-the-way roads enticing drivers to get the candy over there. That, and cookie munching.

Now I'm confused. I thought the driving recurring candy was being removed because it was buggy? How can we just change the timing/value when the first statement that the awarding of the bonus candy was buggy? Won't the awarding of the 1500pt candy be just as buggy and prone to not be given to users? If you can just fix the awarding bug, just fix the current candy award so it works all the time.

Why? You still get the same number of points. And many people will actually get more points, because you will get them in the editor directly instead of having to get a candy while driving.

One of the purposes of the candy bonus was to "force" editors to get out and also drive so that Waze benefits from that usage as well. If Waze doesn't feel that's necessary now, then this is fine.
