Sure I can search for "VIP users" but I cannot see the full list. This is because on my computer, using Chrome with the screen in portrait, the nanorep box only covers about half the screen. The text and table run out the box on the right side and can't figure out how to scroll to see all the text in the point column of the table.

I haven't been able to find where the VIP status is listed either. If it is US only, then it seems odd that asterix06 was name checked for the million points VIP when he is in Europe!

Somewhat confusing.

So this must be the beta version where you see them? Because so far I haven't seen any.

I'm still wondering what to do about including direction in interstate names. It seems that the I-15 shield isn't displaying for the most part in San Diego, instead it's just showing the "I- 15 N" and "I- 15 S" road names.

I was worried about that several weeks ago and asked Dror to confirm that they still wanted us to add the directions. He said yes, so evidently they intend to make this work.


That's really good to know. Otherwise, big pain in the arse.

Where can I see the VIP status? Or is this an US/Can feature as well?

Does the spacing in the route number matter?

Krankyd lists the roads as:

I-15

The Wiki article and Unwallflower have:
I- 15

So should there be a space between I- and the route number or no space?

Looks like the naming convention listed in the Wiki is correct. Space in road name produces shields in Waze 2.4.

I- 15 N
I- 15 S
I- 805 N
I- 805 S

Have the scores changed?


Unsure if they have upped this with the editing ranks. May be 100,000 map edits now vs. 50,000 map edits when it was announced.

If you hit level 4 before they changed the threshold, you still have mega-mapper status. This info came straight from krankyd.


This was initially what I had posted (200k edits) but I revised my post when I saw the the number if edits was initially 50k. I didn't want to believe they bumped up 4x.

Here is the original post from krankdy that states that it was 50k edits (the first post in the thread). Seems that 50k to 200k is quite a jump. 100k I could understand...

I think Mega Mapper was equal to (3) editing rights vs. (4).
