I'm going to speak out against this. I recognise that there's no change in the points earned from editing. However I really liked this element of Waze.

It provides some entertainment value and makes it seem like Waze has a "lighter" side. It also gives a secondary non-tangible reward: my first reward for editing is seeing a badly mapped area cleaned up, but the second is getting those candies the following day.

Finally, you have upset my kids, who like it when the candies appear. Direct quote from the youngest: "No, I want to keep the candies!".

With reference to your reasons given:

2) there should be more achievements that are not one-time achievements
3) if it's buggy fix it , don't get rid of it.

As discussed extensively elsewhere, we should be adding achievements for drivers, rather than removing achievements for editors (yes, I haven't forgotten there's no change in points earned).

Also having taken ages to type (as usual ;) ) I see Alan has commented before me - and I agree with that one as well.

The reimbursed points are not by country. There is a new round to come, for sure.

I have around 350 candies to take. I hope that amount gets added.

Perfect Andy but the points are ok. the edits count in the dashboard are frozen.

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

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

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.
