If you go to the vBExperience Ranking page, how is it that 2 users actually have negative points?


Points for user
korhal23 -222
OverusedName -162

:confused:

I don't know; good question. I only look at the first page at all the super-participators.

If you look at the ex log in thier profiles, you'll note the listing for infractions. They have negative xp because they were naughty.

What is an ex log, and how do I look at it?

Go to the user's profile, there is a set of tabs that you can click on up at the top. Click on the one marked PP&G Experience. It gives a breakdown on how much XP the user has, and where it comes from: Posts, Blogs, etc...

I lost 1.25 levels on the fix. Was that intended, and why, if so?

I have no problem with it for i have been outspoken about doing away with levels and titles, but i do question the math & true motivations when others are given anywhere from 100-1000 referrals during the overhaul to bump their experience and levels, referrals they didn't recieve. If this were just about doing away with General Chatter points-which i'm fine with, then referrals wouldnt be added to pad their profiles. Kind of makes true intentions a bit transparent, don't you think?

I'm not sure what padding you are talking about. The referral bonus was increased some time ago, but not by that much, and certainly no one was given points for referring members that they didn't actually refer.

Sure you do. Anyone can see the transparency if only they looked. I think 100 & 1000 referrals given (nice even numbers, BTW), respectively, makes motivations quite transparent. And i'm not talking about the points per referral, but referrals in general, so don't play politics. Taking the limelight off of a valid point is just insulting.

Thoth,

Are you referring to the number of points that it says for referrals? Since 100 points are given for referring someone to the site, if that the person had 100 points from referrals, that means they referred one person. 1,000 would mean they referred ten. Is that what you are talking about?

Is there a section on the site that lists the points awards?

Not at present, no.

Actually I was sort of surprised that everyone was able to actually see this information. I would have thought that with the exception of the site staff, that members would only be able to see their own break down of points.
