I like +0.5 points per edit :D

Maybe in the future "buy" other moods or other things with points.

If you have a lot of rural areas around where you drive, finding things to edit is not very difficult at all. Many times the map is relatively untouched outside of interstates and maybe a major highway here or there. You'll have complete towns with road directions not set, no turns set, etc. You can rack up a ton of edits in very little time fixing smaller towns. I would say that probably 60-70% of my editing has been in such areas since these areas don't get much love from anyone.

If you want to play with the balance of points between WME and candies, I have no problem with it. If you want to award the candies less often by giving them a higher value, I'm fine with that too (although the kids won't see them so often :lol: ).

What I'm not OK with, is giving more points to editors - or less for that matter. Recent discussions here showed messing with the points to be a contentious issue and the poll had a majority for leaving things as they are.

I think it's fair to say that there was a strong opinion wanting to see something added for drivers. I realise most of us here fall into the "editors" more than the "drivers" camp, but it's unfair to be giving editors more points whilst we still do nothing for the drivers who contribute to Waze.


@Shirli
this concept is correct.
Drivers should be very basic for Waze I believe...but it looks Waze is more interested in "pure editors" than in drivers checking the job done and providing traffic info data.

Anyway ...you decide.

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.


@Shirli
Alan is Right !
the reason to remove was a bug on the system.... and now suddendly , just changing the value of candy the bug if off ???!!!

Did You realize what are we saying ? something sound a little bit strange !!!!

Question :
what was the real reason Waze wanted to remove the bonus candies ?

If if was really a bug on the system...it will continue to be a bug on the system (even changing values) !!
If , in a more realistic way, the reason was another one....but we are not allow to know....that's another story.....

...or simply remove bonus candies !!

In fact doubling automatically the points, push people not to drive with Waze checking possible editing problem but just use waze stay behind a table .

As Alan said, at the end of the story, nothing changes in term of achieved points !

But Waze, if you want to get rid of it (for whatever reason) restore the initial situation when we were editing without added bonus(but not doubling the points).....so we will see the real editors and may be...as it was in Cartouche....try to give us back the list of pending requests....much more useful for the editor than a bunch of candies
