How "Community leader board" scores work?

Hello my friends!

Does anyone have a better explanation of how the “Community leader board” scores work?

I remember that just yesterday, filtering by “All time”, I had more than 1060 points, and today I have 1022 again.

Is there any way to lose points?
Or would this be some behavior caused by the “migration” of messages between topics?

I am not sure why it would have gone down, there’s no way to lose points.

I am adding tags and reorganizing the categories a bit, but that shouldn’t be removing any content or any points. :thinking:

Thank you for the informations @miamoore !!!

this is strange…

somehow my score has dropped by about 60 points from yesterday to today. It would be interesting if someone could verify this.

Hello @miamoore!

As I mentioned in my previous posts above, I believe this might be a bug since theoretically there should be no possibility of losing points on the board. :thinking: :thinking:

As I also mentioned, I vividly remember being close to 1100 points. I can’t recall exactly if I already had 1100 points or not, but I know I was close. However, one day later, my points had dropped to 1022.

Please observe my screenshots below: the first screenshot I took was on August 1st, and I had 1025 points.
The second screenshot taken on August 2nd shows that I had 1024 points, which means 1 point less.

This screenshot was taken on August 1st at 2:42 PM.

This screenshot was taken on August 2nd at 12:54 AM.

Ah ha! I think I found the answer – in the first screen shot, you have “Year” selected, and in the second you have “All time” selected.

Right now, when I checked, you have 1031 points all-time. :slight_smile:

That still doesn’t explain why you had 1060 at one point and it went down. I will ask the extension developers and get back to you!

Still don’t celebrate before time… hahahahahahahaha :sweat_smile: :sweat_smile:

Do you agree with me that, if I have 1025 points “in the year”, how would I have 1024 “all time” (fewer points all time than in a year)… I put these prints just to show that in fact it seems like a bug to me.

And yes, if you check now, I have more points than I did yesterday, as I’ve had some forum action, answering questions.

Thank you in advance for your effort to verify this.

Ah, I was reading it backwards, I thought the all-time one was higher :sweat: Sorry about that.

I asked on Discourse’s forums, and the consensus seems to be:

It seems a bit strange that there have been this many changes though… so I will keep an eye on that thread and see if anyone discovers anything different.

Hahaha no problem :sweat_smile: :smile: :smile:!

So… I didn’t particularly notice any of the changes mentioned by him…

But anyway, thank you!!
I’m available if I can help with anything.

I think I figured it out! I had created some new categories and those weren’t listed as scoreable categories, so anything that was moved into there most likely accounts for your lost points.

I need to talk to IT to run a command to backfill the data, but I think that will solve it! :tada:

Hello @miamoore ! :smile:

I imagined that it could be related to the changes between new categories, because it was exactly close to this moment that they performed the migrations that I noticed the low score.

But I’m glad they apparently found the problem :smiley:

Once it’s resolved, please let me know here so I can close this topic by marking your answer as “solution”.

Thank you for your dedication to finding a solution.

You were right! There are so many different settings hiding in different places, sorry it took a bit for me to figure it out. I will let you know when the backfill is run and see if that fixes it :crossed_fingers:

Hi @WilliamR.Alves, we ran the command, do your scores look more accurate now? :slight_smile:

Thanks for the quick fix.

As I usually say in my current company…: “One less problem to solve!

So I’m closing the thread by marking your answer as the solution!

Thanks again. :rocket: :heart:
