Missing points and activity RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    Is not the first time that this happens. In this thread i have one confirmed answer and a useful vote. But my points don't increased and there isn't any activity about this thread. In last time i report i found a similar behavior the user that marks my reply as answer, marked more than one reply as answer and in this thread was the same behavior.

    Hope help to find the bug.

    I agree: there are several activities that I've performed during this week and my profile's page does not always list them as soon as I've completed them.

    Bye.

  • Looks like activity is not immediate. I voted this your post helpful but it is not yet in your activity or Points.

  • Hi,

    I don't believe i will gain the lost points. Neither my activity. Until today i don't receive anything and happens again, with this thread, the helpful post and with that thread marked as answer. But the other user looks ok, take a look.

    Well i will continue help the community but it's a little frustrating.

    Thanks.

  • BTW, here is a recent example

    I got 20 points for the answer, but not 5 for the helpful vote in that same thread. Helpful vote is also not shown in my activity.

    http://social.msdn.microsoft.com/Forums/en/transactsql/thread/7aead029-b091-4bd6-aaf4-85a0ced50d3e

    Again, the helpful vote is missing in my points and activity.

    This time I got 5 points for the helpful vote, but not 15 for the answer. It is also not recorded in my activity.

    When these problems are going to be fixed?

  • I know this issue is known and reported, but I want to report my experience today. I marked several posts as answers today. When I marked Ed Price's replies as answer, it took 1 or 2 attempts. When I marked Naomi's as answer, it took 9 or 11 attempts.

    As expected, the activity didn't show in my profile for awhile. But now I see several of my recent Answer activities. But all were cases where I marked Ed Price's replies. I also see these activities in Ed's profile. The cases where I marked Naomi's replies do not show up in my profile, and I cannot find them in Naomi's either. I actually marked Naomi's slightly before Ed's replies.

    I will report back if the activities where I marked Naomi's answers show up in my or her's profiles.

  • I got none of these answers today! So, at least it confirms the conspiracy theory :) Since Ed works for Microsoft, no wonder all his answers get in. Since I don't, it takes 9+ attempts to mark my answers and even after that both me and you don't get them (I in my credit, you for your marking credit).

  • And just to confirm it farther look at my profile:

    http://social.msdn.microsoft.com/Profile/naomi%20%20n/activity

    However, prior to voting that Gallery topic I think I voted a few of your replies including this thread. I do not see this in my activity.

    So, not only you can not do anything with me but I can not do anything with your either :)

    And just to report one extra bug which is unrelated (I know), but it surfaces from time to time: in this thread right now I see Chinese for "Already voted" text.

    That may take a long time. Frankly I give up on the first error. I just give her an up vote.

  • Did you vote helpful or it was helpful vote from before? Because if you just did, I didn't get it either.

    BTW, I just tried to propose your answer in that thread twice

    http://social.msdn.microsoft.com/Forums/en/transactsql/thread/bcd535e8-423c-4f59-903f-e925fc9ae3c9 and got the error twice.

    As a moderator and forum's user I can not keep struggling with all the bugs. When both problems - missing activity and marking/proposing big points person will be fixed???!!!

  • Hi All,

    Like others even my activities and points are not reflected in my profile.

    http://social.msdn.microsoft.com/Forums/en/user/threads?user=M.R.ASHWINPRABHU

    I don't think I will get my missed points added to my profile.

    Obviosuly our main intention to spend our time in the forums is to help community but points/achievements are the sure driving factors. Recognition with the points and achievements does help people like me to spend our quality time to community.

    Please someone in MSDN fix this problem please..


    If this answers your question please mark it accordingly

  • Someone has mark my reply (in this forum, just one before this reply) as helpful, again it’s not been updated on my activity as "Contributed a helpful post to the ..." and I have not received any points for it (usually 5 points).

    http://social.msdn.microsoft.com/Profile/m.r.ashwinprabhu/activity

    I think the whole MSDN forum application is having a serious problem. If MSDN doesn't fix it and simply reply like "Missing Activity is a known issue." for sure it’s going to lose some of us. And they need to review their Recognition processes like - MVP, Community achiever awards.

    Updated: after 5 hours and 43 mins: Even this reply is not updated in my activity :(

    I am also facing the same issue . i realized same in mid of February but thought it might be coming after some time but now i can see in many marked answers , neither i got any point nor it got reflected in my profile

  • This issue seems to be getting worse. I am not getting any activity for answers or helpful votes if they are from the person who started the thread. Also I added a TechNet Wiki Article yesterday and that is not showing either. When I mark proposed answers or rate blog posts they does not show.

    Is there any news on when a fix will be put in place?

    Wednesday, March 13, 2013 10:20 AM
  • BTW, today I didn't get 25 points when the OP marked my answer, but I did get -20 when he unmarked the answers lately.

    UPDATE. I got the 20 points back after the OP marked the answer. So, first time he gave 25, I didn't get them. Then he unmarked, I lost 20, he marked again, I got 20 back. Hmm, I think I still didn't get my 25 points on this deal, right?

  • I see that OP re-marked the answers again and also added an extra helpful vote to my post. But I never got that. I'm wondering if 2 posts marked in the same thread is a separate issue or still a part of that missing activity bug.

    And also can we know the estimate of when it will be fixed and points restored?

    I have sent an email to MSDN feedback, they have replied with the following response. Thought it would be helpful to other users

    The profile system is separate from the Forum system. It has to be fed the data from the forums database. And then factor in failing servers and many other communication issues between the platforms, and yeah, it could take days.

  • BTW, looks like the problem we were complaining about (marking answers of people with many points) got eventually resolved.

    But points I lost in that incident or all points lost due to that bug were never restored... So, I think I should have been now around 190K points if they were counted properly.
