This is exactly why I am going back to Google Maps
Why have points? Is there any good reason? Do you get a prize? If it's just for show, I don't have time for games. I would rather use Google Maps, when I can't understand why I am getting points. And it serves no purpose. There are already so many overload where what people create serves no purpose and is useless.
It's a great app, but some of us are too grown to care about points. If I get points at a store or movie theater, there is an incentive. There's no with WAZE. And that's too bad.

The points do have some purposes. The number of points a Wazer has helps determine their ranking in their state, province, or territory. This ranking is used by the routing system in a method of weighting reports and determining the priority to assign to different segments of the map. In general, the system will give more precedence to established Wazers with experience making reports relative to those users who are new to the system.
