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.

...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.

That can be called A(n obsessive) test :ugeek:

Sent from a touch display, which took care of perfectly scrambling my thoughts.

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.

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.

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.

This is probably an idea for a different thread, but as long as we are monkeying with the candies system, I'd like to see them add more candies for non-editing drivers to prompt people to take less traveled streets. Sorta like how they do the candies during holiday promotions, but tweaked specifically to target roads that need more speed data to help with routing.

Waze can't provide the most efficient routes if it doesn't know what the most efficient routes are.

The candies system is entertainment and makes the editor to drive. I do totally agree with not cancelling this, I have more than 120 candies saved and they do not appear when i drive. I hope the decision will be the best, i mean, if the candies disappear those points shall be added to our accounts.
Best regards
