{{Editing rank}}
You can see your own editing rank from the Waze Map Editor on the top left of the screen. Your rank appears as a series of cones with a number. Also note that currently the segments you edit on the map will show your rank using the older rank number system in pace before January 2012.

If your rank is lower than what it should be (based on the criteria below), please contact support to have the team look into the situation.

The information below about points, ranks, and promotion applies to most countries. Please check for any additional information about your country. In particular, countries with rank Self-Management may have very different ranking systems.

If you are NOT in a rank Self-Managed country and you have met the criteria for promotion, please contact Waze Support to request promotion. If you are in a rank Self-Managed country, please read your country-specific information to learn about rank promotion. Note: This information was last changed as of July 2014. Future changes are still in discussion.

Description Rank in Cones in WME Editable Area Radius Notes
Admin, System, or Basemap import N/A (staff) N/A Includes segments which have not been created or edited by an actual user, but exist from the initial data import (called the basemap) will show this information.
Area Manager N/A N/A Area Managers (AM) can edit anything within their assigned area except objects locked by higher-level editors. Editors of any Rank can be granted AM rights, however in some countries there may be a minimum requirement before Area Managers are approved. Read the Area Manager section in the Wiki first before applying for an AM.
New users 1 1 mile All users start in this group, unless they are a member of one of the other groups listed
Editors with 3K edits or IGN editors 2 2 miles IGN Map editors are an extension of the Waze Geo-Ops (aka the Map Team)
Editors with 25K edits 3 3 miles Editors with 25K edits. Note: Some IGN Map editors may also be rank 3.
Editors with 100K edits 4 4 miles Need to contact Support for upgrading the level.
Editors with 250K edits 5 4 miles Need to contact Support for upgrading the level.
Waze Champs or over 500K edits 6 N/A Many Waze Champs will hold this rank to assist the Waze Staff in managing security in road locks. Also if other editors reach 500K edits, they can request moving up to this rank.
Over 500K edits and granted country-wide editing rights 6 Country-wide Once you reach 500K map edits, you can separately request through Support that you be granted country wide editing rights for the server on which you participate. This is not a separate editing rank, but the old rank system used that term to refer to country managers (CM). In some countries with rank self management you will also need approval from the other CMs. In smaller countries with no current CM, you can request CM status at a lower rank and if appropriate you may be granted.

Editing permissions

Locked segments

When an editor locks a segment, it currently has two functions:

  1. Automatic adjustments
  2. Editing ability

Automatic adjustments

A locked segment will not be changed by GPS tracks both in terms of geometry and directionality.

Segment Editing ability

A locked segment cannot be changed by an editor of a rank lower than that of the locking editor, or the rank of the editor who last edited the segment. The rank is locked based on the last person to edit the segment, and not the user who created it.

You can edit segments based on your editing rank and Editable area. Once a segment is locked, only a user with the same (or higher) rank, or an Area Manager whose area includes that segment, can edit the segment again.

Locked junctions

A junction is considered to be locked when at least one segment which is connected to that junction is locked. A junction is locked from making driving-based changes (such as opening a restricted turn) once one of the turn restrictions in that junction is edited.

Speed cameras editing ability

The last person to edit the speed cam is basically locking it to their rank. A user with a lower rank will not be able to change / delete the camera, unless they are the owner of the camera or if it's in their area of management.

Area Managers

Area Managers can override anything locked, even if it was locked by an editor of a higher rank.

A growing list of Area Managers and their preferred contact details can be found here.
