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.
Note: Changes have been made to ranks as of May 2013. Some of these changes are still in discussion and may continue to change beyond what is shown below.
|Description||Rank in Cones in WME||Editable Area Radius||Notes|

|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 1K edits or IGN editors||2||2 miles||IGN editors are paid editors working for a Waze subcontractor.|

This is not a separate editing rank, but the old rank system used that term to refer to country managers (CM).|
|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.|
