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

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.
