Site Update Causing Points Issue? RRS feed

  • Question

  • Seems like there was a site update that changed some formatting within the last few hours. 2 hours ago I had 150 points. Now I have 30.

    FYI

  • Points were recalculated for all users based on the new recognition model.  More information about the update can be found here: http://blogs.msdn.com/b/addeditdelete/archive/2011/06/30/forums-recognition-update-coming-july-14th-2011.aspx  Let us know if you have any questions about this.

    Points Changes

    On July 14th user points will be updated for all users. Users will see new point totals and achievements for the history of their participation in the forums for the past six years. Some users will gain points but most points will be adjusted to a lower value based on the new points algorithm. Two main differences in the new algorithm:

    • New points system rewards users for reply counts as ‘achievements’ instead of the 2 points per reply.
    • New points system no longer rewards users for ‘self-answer marking’ on their owner replies. This has been a noted bug in the system for years that until now, we have not addressed.

  • Ah OK. I did make a couple of my answers to other peoples questions as the answer when I knew for a fact it was the answer. I will stop doing that. ;-)

     

    Thanks
