Re: Point System

Yes @JustinP you should get points for any kind of edit you do on Maps. Keep in mind that for you to get a point the edit has to be approved and published first. Also, only one point max per location, no matter how many edits you do for that particular location.

Re: Point System

When were they published and how long have you waited? Sometimes it takes a while for the points to be updated.

Re: Point System

Try waiting a few more days then. If the points haven't been updated within a week, feel free to comment here again and we'll see what we can do.

I'm sorry, but this is incorrect information.

 

You will not get points for editing the majority of things on the map; such as roads, address markers, rivers, mountains, cities, etc.

 

Points can only be earned for editing certain places (known to mappers as POIs).  Specifically, you will only get points for editing POIs in the "establishment" sub-set of categories.  Basically, if you can leave a review on it then it's in that sub-set.

 

You will only get one point for editing a feature.  If you have ever edited it in the past, you already received your point and will not get another one.  There is a separate point available if you were the person that added the feature.

Re: Point System

@GreggG You're right, my apologies. I guess when I said 'any kind' I was talking more in terms of editing/adding locations and such. I totally forgot that you can edit roads and such (not a big MapMaker user). Thanks for the correction.

Re: Point System

Road editing is not restricted to Map Maker, just the more complex edits are currently only available there.  You can edit roads from within Maps also, but that will not earn you points.

 

You can also edit POIs that are not in the establishment sub-category, those too will not earn you points.

 

It is only a specific sub-set of the edits that count towards points.
