So i was at 250 ... got a 5 star rating and seen it raise to 250 ... but then tonight its back down to 250 !?
Any ideas? Did Leo steal my points again!?
Your points are now back to 260 and I can assure you Leo didn't steal them I believe it's a caching issue and am having IT investigate. If you are ever in doubt about your points just go to your profile and check the reputation tab. It should always display the most up to date number.
May I ask if there exists a trade-off between real-time response from the site and real-time accuracy of the points of the members? If this is so, then you can steal some of my points and distribute them to members, if that's what it takes to have the site performing at an acceptable level!
What a team player you are by offering up your points for site speed There are some aspects of the rating system that are cached to help improve performance but I don't believe George's issue is one of them. Now, I have been wrong once or twice so I've asked IT If it is cached and George wants his points real-time I'll just start giving him yours
Great! Only problem with this plan is that I don't have infinite points. Don't worry though, because I do have infinite votes. If inconsistencies exist and you have run out of my points, just drop me an e-mail and I will start massively rating posts!
Edit: You will have to take care of the answered flags yourself, because I do not have sufficient privileges for this.
thanks... i also noticed the the site isnt updating as well... for
example post are checked as anwsered, but doesnt show it ...
Hope all is well my friend
I'm pretty sure that "answered" question dealio is being looked at,
here is a good thread started by Peter from a week ago;
Maria...I have rated your post here a +5 for sheer kindness!! If Dan
is taking points away and redistributing them on the site, I suggest
he take them away from that "deadbeat" Huff guy
Cheers to all!
Thanks for the rating my friend! I guess we have 5 more points for the good purpose of speeding up the site! You are my model of kindness. Although I sign with 'kind regards', I am not always the kind person I would like to be!
In the past we had issues with the rating system, but Dan and Tim were saying there was not really a problem with the underlying data. So, if the data are fine in the end, I don't think we should insist a lot about our points being shown right away at all areas of the site now that the site is performing so much better. That was the point I was trying to make. I just said it in a weird way!
p.s. "redistributing"? That's the magic word of the week in WAN, Routing and Switching!
Just want to let you know that the same thing is happening with my points too. I was at 484 yesterday and I earned 10 to 15 points today, now not only it does not show the additions to my total points, it also subtracted 4 points and am now at 480 even when I click on my profile.
Your profile now shows 499. It must be my magic touch In order to see your true number you need to click on the "reputation" tab in your profile. Once you click on that tab it will show your true point total and reset the cache. At that point your profile should show the correct number going forward. You'll be happy to know this bug should be fixed in our 2/4 release
Thank you so much for your quick response. I see "reputation" tab is only place that shows the true numbers.
BTW, the site is blazing fast. Keep up the good work.
