Waze Map Editing Ranks link to this section

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.

Editing Permission

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. For more information, please read about permissions in the waze map editor. You can see the current editing rank of the last editor of any segment, place, or camera by selecting the object and checking the information in the left pane. If you need help fixing an object that is locked above your rank, please read about editing objects locked above your rank

Map Editing Rank Criteria

Waze Champs

Waze Champs are fellow Wazers like everyone else who are generally; very experienced using Waze, have tenure, are active in the forums with moderator privileges, contribute to the Waze Wiki, and participate in many Waze related projects.

Most forum questions are answered by these users as they give their time freely to the Waze community. They are selected by Waze developers and are generally in closer direct communication with the Waze development team.

This group also includes Wazers who were invited by Waze to the attend the various Waze Meet-Ups around the globe.

The Waze Champ status only appears in the forums as part of the user's profile history when they post a message.

If for any reason you have a question you don't feel comfortable asking in the main forums, you can send a Private Message (PM) to a Waze Champ who will be happy to answer your question.

Forum badges

The Waze forums use badges to indicate group membership for Waze editors. Some editors may belong to multiple groups, but only one badge can be displayed. Each Waze editor who has more than one badge can select which badge to display in the right pane of their forum posts. The following table identifies the current badges in use in the forums. Membership in these groups requires approval by a country's Self-Management and is applied to the forum by certain Champs or Waze administration.
