I just discovered I lost 2K+ points overnight. I'm not a big point watcher (I know I won't get close to any of the heavies in this lifetime) but it's not a nice feeling to be discounted on what appears to be a "whim".
I saw your informational message. Being very new to CP, am bit obsessed with point hence I have followed my points from beginning and saw increasing after every answe/upvote.
Seeing 1000 points disappearing and the reasoning given in the information message is not very clear. For instance, just day before the upgrade I know I attained silver in organizer and boom...gone. 100+ point in organizer and some 700-800 in authority.
So what should we understand? These points are gone forever ?
Also, couple of answers given yeterday is NOT accounted in the rep.
I think still it is not fixed.Isn't it? Just now i anserwered a question To parse a string in console application[^] and still points aren't added to Authority section.When also edited my answer and still points aren't added for that.I think some other members also face it.So i think problem still there..
Hey guys, as per this[^] post and my response to it, there have been at least two -16/-160 abuse reports given on at least two separate answers to this question[^]?
Before seeing that more than one post had been flagged, I had simply deleted mine as it was a bit of a tongue-in-cheek response. But since another, completely innocuous answer in this thread was flagged, I'm wondering if one of the hamsters could just check and ensure that we don't have a troll running around flagging posts willy-nilly. I'm assuming it is the same person as they have a high enough rep to do this, but aren't quite platinum yet.
I realise that voting is currently off in the Lounge.
However, voting buttons are still available in the technical forums. There's a thread starter in C# which is pretty clearly a homework question, so I 1-voted it. It showed 'Rating: 1. Votes: 2' when I did it. However, the post still shows no rating when viewed, and is not greyed out as a low rated post.
I'm not sure whether the votes aren't being stored or the thread display isn't getting average ratings, but something is not right in there somewhere.
Again,I can't see my answered question in Reputation History; Also I'm answering answers but not getting any points.
Update1 : when downvoted there is fall in my authority points this is working but when I answer any question they are not added to authority points.
One of the bugs in the rep system might relate to voting on your own articles.
Previously when I went platinum on Author, went went back through my own articles and re-voted on them, and gave myself a little rep boost
After you did the update yesterday, I had dropped (not sure of the exact number) but somewhere in the region of 1000.
Just out of curiosity, I went back through my articles and revoted to see what would happen. and out of the 20 published articles (I have 1 in draft), I managed to boost on 10 of them for 800, and I know that I had previously done them.
So it looks like there is something a miss in that area.
[Edit: I did the same for the tips, and also got a gain there]
It seems there is no history in my reputation events from 16-22 Nov. In Organizer I am back to bronze !
UPDATE: I answered two questions in QA just now but no rep points added for that !
UPDATE 2: And now someone downvoted this post. Being reprimanded for asking question!
Since the points have gone down for everyone. Could someone let us know something that could assure us temporarily.
It could be a comforting statement like "Its because of a bug and your points will come back" or it could be a stern statement like "The rep points were all wrong earlier because of bug and now it is the correct value".
Please let us know something because lack of information if making me worry about rep points
P.S. I couldn't go through the earlier discussion completely so this question could be completely futile too.
Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn't do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore, Dream. Discover.
Looks like all activities that resulted in entries in the Rep history facility after Nov. 16, 11:58PM: are gone, with corresponding rep reduction (boo hoo: NOT).
I often go to the rep page first, to refresh my mind with which topics I recently commented on, or what QA answers I responded to, etc., and then work back in time from the last entry, to see if there's any response, or see what else was said on the forum thread or the QA question, so it's a handy record for me.
Confused by having a brain ? This may help: [^] !
