The idea that these motivated editors to drive more would seem to conflict with the Wiki page on the points:
"If for some reason you are unable to drive over the candy, don't worry about it. The candy will come back at another location as you continue to drive, or when you use Waze again later. If you do not enable these "Road Goodies" in the Waze client application, you will receive the credits during the next weekly point update."

Seems any editor who intended to only edit and never drive would simply turn them off in the app and get the points at the end of the week.

Candies not eaten always were added to the score after a week or so. You never lose the points, even if you don't drive or disable display of roadcandies.

In other words, separate scoreboards for drivers and editors. Let editors compete on editcount, drivers compete on distance driven and quantity/quality of their reports.

...as we were actually getting always, in the past: by the math, 1.6 direct points per edit + 750/500 = 1.5 candy points per 500 edits. (I'm aware it disagrees with wiki (1.5+1.5), these are just my observations.)
In net, no change. The value 3.1 just gets official.

How can you tell for how many edits you are missing points? They are counted just on the Dashboard and an estimate from the editing sessions is usually very subjective.

I started editing about two weeks ago, I've made a few edits here and there, 50+ house numberings, all of these changes have gone live. But in the dashboards my map updates is still 0. Will I ever get points for these?

as written by Shirli, candies are going to be reimbursed in 1-2 weeks, and after that the new candy will start showing up.

sketch wrote:Apparently the bonus points were only gained upon eating the candy, which I think might be part of the problem—what if you missed the candy? Maybe not. Either way, it can of course be calculated how many candies you should have gotten from how many edits you have, and therefore, by comparing the total you actually received with what you should have, the lost candy points can be made up for.


Yes, i got obsessed about the candies time ago: where would they spawn? is it always the same place? what if the road type is different? and other questions, including the one about gaining the points upon looting the candy. In order to test the last thing, i edited for 4 months without turning on the app, then i didnt edit or turn on the app the following month until i made sure i wasnt getting any points. After that i would just turn on the app and loot candies (without editing)... and that until Shirli canceled the candies. There is no way the candies was getting added to the total every monday, i would have over 4 millions points now. Just wait until waze starts reimbursing the candies, there are people who have saved candies through years (top 5?) and i wouldnt be surprised to see a few people adding 500k+ to their totals.
