Browse Users sorting broken RRS feed

  • Question

  • Click the Sort By button a few times.  Scroll towards the bottom of the list to see numbers out of order.  I don't see much of a pattern to the bug.  It is not consistent either.

  • This isn't something we are going to fix, instead we plan to build a profile/recognition user directory and just remove our browse user page. Hopefully over the next few months.

  • Yea we caught this one a little too late to get a fix in. What's actually going on is the "page" of users is correct, just the ordering within that page is somewhat random. Behind the scenes we get the list of 20 User Id's in the correct sort order. But the call we use, along the lines of "User[] GetUsers(Guid[] userIds)" doesn't guarantee the ordering of the returned list matches the ordering of the request list. Then due to difference in whats cached at any given time on the server in the cluster that you hit, you get fairly random results within that page.

    I believe we're planning on a small release in the near future to address some of the issues we couldn't fit in this release.

  • As Rob said, I actually had a fix for this 2 or 3 days ago. It was just too late to get into this release.

  • This appears to be fixed (by Matt's fix and various updates over 3+ years).

  • No, Browse Forum Users still have no correct order. What is the order if you press it? It's not by the number of points.

  • Looking forward to it as right now I can not be sure of my standing. According to the current listing I should be on the 4th place, soon to take 3rd, but there may be users who are not listed in the first 20.
