I particularly don't agree, because I think you can't take the changes of the map as competition. Because it is simple, many editors will change little things in various areas of the map just to get edit points. Therefore, instead of looking serious and important problems, will compete to see who edits more times, changing things that don't need to modified and forgetting what is important. Sometimes this is already happening with the current points system. So I think the system should continue as is, but the analysis of the changes of the map should be improved by giving more points for more effective and less points editions for small changes. Small changes, less points. If you know what I mean! It's just my opinion! ;)

I think that waze should be more entertaining for those who don't edit, one time achivments are food but not good enough, they have to create competition between drivers, like assigning badges, or candys in this case the way four square does
Just a little part of my wish list

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.

Yes, I know I wont lose them :) my question was if the previous announce has anything to do with the delayed editing points in the dashboard. Also there are almost 2 weeks since the editing points were stopped being updated in the dashboard and it's kind of an annoying thing.

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.

UPDATE:
the first step in the process is complete:
All edits from now are credited with 3 points. The candy is withheld.
In the upcoming days we will reimburse editors who didn't take all the candies with all the missing points. After it's done we will re-enable the candy with the new parameters - 300 points per 3000 edits.
Regarding more gaming stuff for drivers - I informed the product team that there's a huge demand for this and they will check what can be done. (also updated in the original message of the thread)

Thanks!

I like +0.5 points per edit :D

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