Editing rank/Rank comparisons
You can see your own editing rank from the Waze Map Editor (WME) on the top left of the screen. Your rank appears as a series of cones with a number. In the WME when you select a segment, the properties drawer will show you the name of the editor who created and last modified the segment. The number in parenthesis is the rank system scale.
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. Currently moving from one rank to the next higher rank is not automatic and needs assistance from Waze support.
|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.|
|New user (less than 100K map edits)||1||1 mile||All users start in this group, unless they are a member of one of the other groups listed|
|IGN editor||2||2 miles||Used by paid editors working for a Waze subcontractor.|
|Area Manager||3||4 miles||After you get experience editing the area directly around your travels, you can request managing your area through support. Area Managers (AM) can edit anything within their assigned area except objects locked by higher-level editors.|
|Over 100K map edits||4||4 miles||Need to contact www.waze.com/support for upgrading the level.|
|Over 200,000 edits||5||4 miles||Need to contact www.waze.com/support for upgrading the level.|
|Over 200,000 edits and granted country-wide editing rights||5||Country-wide||Once you reach 200K map edits, you can separately request through www.waze.com/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).|
