''For other uses, see [[Rank (disambiguation)]] or [[Points (disambiguation)]]''
== My Dashboard ==
You can see your points and rank from the mobile application by selecting can select the Menu, then My Waze, then Scoreboard. You can see more information about your points from the website at [[File:Cog.PNG]][http://www.waze.com/dashboard My Dashboard]. For more information about the dashboard, please read[[My_Dashboard|My Dashboard]].
Waze updates your dashboard periodically -- usually once a day. If you do not think the points are up-to-date, please check the [//status.waze.com/ status page] to see if waze is aware of any delays. Waze calculates all the points that all Waze users have earned and shows you where you rank compared to other Waze users. The Dashboard page on the website will also show you how additional information about your driving, reporting, and map editing.
== How are points calculated? ==
Different things you do with Waze -- driving, reporting, editing the map -- will earn you different amounts of points. You receive the same number of points per kilometer driven whether you choose to display miles or kilometers (the second a table below translates the two measurement systems).
Waze maintains a [//support.google.com/waze/answer/6078593?hl=en&ref_topic=6073110 list of activities and points] -- it is also shown below.
=== What's the Difference Between a Change and an Edit? ===
[[File:wme_button_save_pending_red.png|right]]In the map editor, any change is counted by the counter on the [[Map_Editor_Interface_and_Controls#Save_Button|Save icon]]. A change is not the same as an edit. A change is any action that can be undone with the undo button.For example, if you select 10 segments at one time, correct the spelling of the name on all 10 segments, and select Apply, the change counter will increase by one. Why? Because you made one single, undo-able change. If you change one segment by moving 10 geometry points around a curve, each time you drag and drop a geometry point, that is a change and the change counter increases because you can undo each of these actions.
In the first example, those 10 segments changed all at once will get you credit for 10 edits. In the second example, those 10 changes will get you credit for 1 edit. In the first, you changed 10 different objects. In the second, you changed only a single object.
{{:Your Rank and Points/Client ranks}}
=== Waze Point Points Rank ===
Your total points collected from all types of activities are compared to others in your Country or State depending upon what server you are located. You are also compared to everyone on both servers around the world. This rank is displayed in various locations on the app and in the My Dashboard through the web interface. The highest rank is 1.
When you edit the map, you accumulate map edit points. You can also earn higher editing ranks.
Both map edit points and editing rank are displayed when you use the map editor. Your editor rank affects the area of the map you can edit as well as your ability to "lock" roads, places, and cameras, edit locked roads, places, and cameras, and add closures to roads <center>[[File:Profile L1.

{{:In the USA, rank promotions are evaluated based on a combination of related factors including;* Editing rank/Rank comparisons}}skill and knowledge* Editing quality and finish* Community involvement* Proper etiquette in communication* Mentoring participation* Edit count* Suspicious or damaging edits
=== VIP Users ===[[File:Checklist.png|75px|left]]Factors relevant to promotion may be weighted differently at different ranks. Promotion to ranks 2 and 3 often focus more on knowledge level, skill, and quality of edits (with edit count used a proxy). Promotion to ranks 4 and above often emphasize communication, community involvement, mentoring, and leadership.
'''As Edit count therefore is of January 2013diminishing importance to promotion at higher ranks. If one edits with the requisite skill and communicates with integrity and etiquette, and other [[#Rank specific details|rank-associated criteria]] are satisfied, one may be promoted before achieving the VIP status is listed edit count for a given rank. If one does not demonstrate effective editing practices with quality edits and proper decorum, promotion may not occur even after one has achieved the listed edit count. This should be seen not availableas a reflection of one'''. The Waze team is working on s worth as an editor, but only as a different approach to this status.<!--COMMENTED OUT FOR NOWBelow you can see what it was previously for those interestedresult of the decreased relevance of edit count especially as one reaches higher ranks.
[[File:Formal mentoring 2.png|right|75px]]
The [[Mentoring/Formal/USA|Formal Mentoring]] program is a great tool to help you learn the skills and knowledge you will need to be eligible for a rank promotion. Being in communication with your SM and/or RC even before you are eligible, will also show you where you need to focus to become eligible for the promotion.
