Name not getting reflected in top answerers for 30 days RRS feed

  • Question

  • Users have marked many of my posts as answers in last month and this month, but my name never gets reflected in Top Answerers in 30 days list. Please look into this.

  • The forums were redesigned and the Top Answerers is less nice now. It's for all of TechNet or MSDN and is not forum specific. I realized that you posted this before the change.

    Because now you'd have to get over 124 answers in 30 days to make the top 5. And you only answered 11 in the last 4 months: http://social.technet.microsoft.com/Profile/sapna%20shukla%20-%20project%20mvp/activity

    So previously I have no idea. But currently the answer is that you'll need to get busy to beat Olaf and Trevor, because they're pretty awesome!

    But since you're an MVP, you only have to get 99 answers to beat Dave Patrick and get on the MVP list. =^)

    Thanks!

  • Unfortunately, the Recent lists (visitors, moderators, answers) have not been updated in a few months. See this similar thread:

    http://social.technet.microsoft.com/Forums/en-US/reportabug/thread/35e7d3aa-92e4-4c5d-9fa6-da598184de7b

    We are told it is a server issue that they are aware of. It might have affected performance, causing timeout errors, so they disabled it until the problem can be fixed.

  • Thanks Richard. Hope it gets updated soon. Does it impact the total point status when it is pulled from Database to assess the contributions made through a year?

  • Any update, by when this would be fixed?

  • I have not seen an update yet, but there have been more complaints in the thread I linked above. I would add, that as far as I can tell, all of our activity is showing up on the Activities tab in our Profiles. And our points are getting updated in a timely fashion. I have seen no complaints about not getting points or achievements in a long time. It's just that the "Recent" lists are old.

  • Please keep the thread open, unless its resolved. I appreciate Richard for the updates you provided - but if the Recent list is hitting the performance issues then they should be removed from page rather than passing on deceptive information to Forum users. But having said that, if its still seen as a integral part to display statistical information on a Forum then it has to be updated and accurate.
