The points, and also candy´s, are the things different from the waze to other solutions. also there is the particular user in mind have fun ...

So it is not possible to create, for the free and more official performance of the user, either by driving or edit, this bonus program to maintain?

But apparently it is possible many 2-7 point-candy´s on every fifth street to place, as now olympia currently ...?

Also this requires a certain effort for programming and points system.

Please explain the difference to us.

i hate the fact that waze cancels the candy system because they cant fix it. If that is the trend, fire the infrastructure team ( kidding :lol: ). That aside, i agree with people up there, you should reward drivers more. Waze might host events (halloween event for example) where drivers got to do determined things to get points. Lets say, pumpinks show up on the map when you are driving, and everytime you take 10 of them, you get XX points in the end of the day. People would feel motived to drive more and we would have more data in the segments ;). i cant say i will miss the 750 points candy, i lost the 20% of my total in the last 3-4 months, so welcome to the 3 points per edit!

Finally, i got one question: when you say "cancel", are you implying that the 750 candy wont show up on the map anymore, or the system wont just reward people more? i ask this because i have 50+ candies left, so i would like to know if ill be able to loot them or you will add them to my total.

Yes, the issue that got a few people annoyed is you guys couldnt fix the bug. Anyways, Lain is right, you are giving extra points to editors by giving a 750 points candy every 1500 edits, while you still make it 3 points per edits.

What you should do is add an improvement. Do what you said about the editor's candy (3 points per edit) and add a 500 or 750 points candy for drivers every 100 miles. That way you dont need have 2 servers connected to manage the candies.

Such routes exist but are unknown to Waze because of a lack of user data, goodies can encourage enough use to change that. It was Real Life comic about munching goodies in Waze that turned me on to Waze.



+1 to that, and in addition, add candies for drivers. robin wrote an idea about adding the candies for drivers in places where we have no data, that would be a great improvement!

you can have my crown if the thread quits showing Active on my "view your posts" list. Your ideas are welcome, but they arent new. You can notice it by checking the rank and points forum, where you have been writing lately. The issue is it would be a low priority update for waze, because they choose other things to do first. In the meanwhile, let's be grateful about the drivers candy, it had been asked for a long time.

there are a lot of days since the editing points were not updated in the dashboard for some (or all) users.
If yes, when we could aspect that editing points will be up to date? thanks


Waze is investigating that. You wont lose your map edit count, so it is just a matter of time.

Not sure if it got to do anything with the candy stuff, but just to make it clear: the candy was taken out on purpose because a modification is taking place. The dashboard is still being investigated and waze will inform once it is fixed.
