Re: Change in editing points

I ran across an interesting bug due to the change in editing points. But I wasn't fast enough to get a screen capture.

When I started Waze this morning, I got a bar at the top for a few moments saying words to the effect of, "Congrats on 3000 edits! Have a 750 point candy!" (The candy that I received was only 300 points.)

Iphone 5, running the latest iOS and the latest version of Waze.

My thought

Actually I have verified that the system of bonus candies, didn't work properly

Honestly I would have preferred a system that would reward the editors only with candies (maybe 2 candies every 500 edits) to "force" the editors to drive.

Many young editors, make mistakes so trivial, which I think some of them don't use Waze while driving :cry:

Is not possible to you to solve the issue?
Have you all the know-how of G-Mother and nobody can give you a suggestion?

After forgot the season candy, now the last candy we can eat on the road are deleted.
What is remaining? It seems only traffic information for G-Maps in NA :(

Please, I don't want any points anymore.
I'm editing because It's funny, it's give me a great sensation because I made something useful for all the drivers, so I don't need points.
Please, don't give me points when I edit a road.

Marc... what a great idea.
But... maybe, the bug should be greater than the previous status :(

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! ;)

The question becomes, how does Waze determine a useful and less-useful edit? A simple turn restriction can be considered a huge edit in some places and minor in others. A new road can be considered a huge edit where it links two towns but minor if it's a pointless turning lane. They won't have humans looking at each edit.


But I have a possible solution! Just scoring based on the amount of Wazers passes the location (GPS traces). Imagine several Wazers turning a street in WME is prohibited, the editor that fix will be doing something useful for the route, given that the passage there is constant! This may not benefit many who live in places where there are not many users going with Waze. But for this, the system analyzes the amount of Wazers in the region and the criterion is reduced. Another idea I've seen people closing all the curves of a street and opening again, so it saves and earns edit point, in this case, just make an analysis of the changes of user and does not give much point for those who change the same things. Good, but here is the question that will help me suggest a change ... So which method you suggested to analyze the edits?

Thanks! ;)

Hi guy, I've same problem here... probably this are caused by the change in point system, I'm looking for more explanation about this! If anyone can help us with this question!

Instead of take off the candies, you should put more candies in the client, we want to invite the people to use waze anytime, well, maybe a good idea could be putting a lot of "candies" in the map, like pacman, not only for the editor... for everybody...

I agree with Robin, we maintain the same points for editors (but in a different way) and we motivate drivers to use the app and to go to new mapped placed. Excellent Robin
