My Activity score & the Number of ratings are not updated ANYMORE for a LONG time!

Сообщение Seeker78 » Вт ноя 15, 2016 5:43 pm

Greetings!

As it is clear from the subject, this is the nature of my problem. As a long time member (almost 6 years), I made the decision, I should report this further. To be more precise:

1. ACTIVITY score (as seen in the Profile, My posts and other sections of the WOT site):

According to my observations, this number has remained THE SAME for many months. The number 4682 has not changed for AT LEAST a couple of months (very likely much more time has passed without any change), ALTHOUGH my rating habits have not changed dramatically for a long time.

For example: For AT LEAST 6 months I've been rating websites more or less consistently. With this I mean:

Sometimes I make only a few ratings per month, but in other months more than 20 per month. But in each of those 6 months I rated at least few websites. Almost each month I also make at least a few scorecard comments. The ratio is now roughly 1 to 3 (one comment on three ratings, though this ratio varies greatly each month);

2. My (official) number of ratings:

In REALITY, there are EXACTLY 646 ratings I made until today (15.11.2016). This is the OFFICIAL number, that changes (increases) instantly I rate a particular website and I can check the number under the section "My ratings".

Only in November of 2016, until the 15th (and the day is not over yet :) I made a little less than 30 ratings and 3 comments. Yet in every section (as described under point 1 of this post) the number 555 remains my OFFICIAL number of sites I've rated.

I know, that sometimes it takes time, that the changes become apparent, but now so much time has passed, that I'm almost sure that there is something wrong.

So for the end, everything SUMMARISED:

I can just hope, that someone will look into the matter further, because this "bug" (or whatever it is) has now become much more than a simple annoyance, because the discrepancy is simply too big (646 versus 555 ratings - that is more than 90 ratings, or put otherwise, around 15% of ALL my ratings) and my ACTIVITY score (4682) remains the same for more time I can actually remember, though NOTHING of importance (MEANING: regarding how much and in which way I use WOT) has changed from my side.

Regards.

Denis

P.S.

I have screen-shots (if perhaps needed) to prove, that this actually occurs as I described and another reason is, that pictures tell more than 1000 words :)

A little searching trough the "maze" of screen-shots (SS) has given me at least one answer, that may be of some limited value. The LAST change, I can positively confirm (retrospectively) is:

On the 3rd of October 2016, my OFFICIAL number (as seen for example under "the Profile" and "my Posts" section of WOT website) of rated sites was (you guessed): 555.

It seems, that around this time, one of the LAST changes of my activity score occurred, because at this date it was 4647. The next number and the fact, that it does not change any-more I mentioned more than enough times, but why not again: 4682;

Under the section My ratings (which is the ONLY one, which regained its consistency regarding the number of rated pages trough time), the number of them shown there at that time was 615.

There is another thing I found out (if it is worth to write it, I don't know, but it surely does not hurt):

Trough SS I also figured out, that the "DISCONNECT" between the number of ratings as shown under the section "My Ratings" and ALL other ones coupled with the complete stop with updates of rated pages (except of course under "My Ratings") started because of some unknown reason in the month of July, 2016.

P.S.

Maybe this is only a "stockpile" of worthless data, I don't know, but after so much work invested into WOT, it would be almost sad, that there is no progress shown any-more in my work, so I'm more than willing to help, but if this info is actually worth something is not really for me to decide. I hope it helps, but I very much doubt it.

ANOTHER thing:

Activity points are not the most important factor for me to participate in the WOT community, but trough time they proved as a pretty good motivation tool to take that extra few moments and dedicate it them to the rating of a particular site. A deeply embedded human condition as as scientist in me would say:

Giving some kind of reward to a participant, no matter how trivial it may seem, will increase the willingness of volunteers to participate. You do not find such a response only here, there are plenty of similar examples for that kind of behaviour, but this is completely another story...

Here's an official reply from the WOT team:

"We are very sorry for the inconvenience from the fast that updating the activity score is broken.
Our development team is already informed about it and will fix it at some point. However until then the score will remain frozen.
We are storing all the information on our servers and only the display part is broken, so no data or information is lost.
Once the fix will be done all your contributions will be taken into account and score updated.

Once again sorry for the inconvenience."

Hello Seeker78. Have you seen any change since you first posted about this in November 2016?

I have noticed something similar. My activity score is static, even though the number of ratings I do increments correctly. My activity score has been 9,362 for over a year, since 2015. My rating count has been updating for some or all of that time. It is now 3,916.

This isn't a big deal, or a vital concern.... but I have wondered whether WOT knew, or could easily fix the problem. It used to work fine, as I have been rating sites since 2011. There is a 10,000 point activity score requirement for Platinum level. It would be nice to get there, as I am quite close with 9,362 and for such a long time!

Same here, nothing changes, for months.
Hope I do not rate for nothng. I don't care about levels, points, etc, but if it has no reason, as it is not recorded, so why should I waste my time? This way I won't help anybody to run into porn, gambling or infected or phishing sites....

<quote user="apika2">Please forgive me robbing your time, but WOT is here to SAVE children and other people from running into bad websites.
As I worte you guys I have 4 children myself.
I thank you for the detailed instruction on how to syncronize, but it does not work, as there is no button like this. Maybe I'll try another browser.[/quote]<quote user="apika2">

[/quote]The WOT extension running in to Google Chrome web browser will probably yield the most satisfactory performance at the moment.

Members of this users' community should not expect the relatively minor bug in the activity scores to be fixed while the WOT staff is working on more important matters.

As you have already read, the ratings that WOT has recorded for you are listed under the "My ratings" tab on your profile page. If your ratings aren't listed there, contact the WOT staff at info@mywot.com (preferably using the same e-mail address with which you registered your WOT user account).

To test if your ratings are able to block a site that you don't trust, submit adverse ratings for the (actually safe) site example.com on its WOT scorecard at
https://www.mywot.com/scorecard/example.com
Position the sliders for Trustworthiness and for Child Safety into the red area, of course.

Then navigate your web browser to that site http://example.com

If you see a caution from WOT, your ratings are being recorded and your WOT add-on app is functioning on your browser. Delete your test ratings when you are finished.

NotBuyingIt,

Is it really necessary to chide us for reporting things that don't work?

Yes, I know it is a minor bug in the activity scores and WOT user levels. I agree that it is totally minor, not even "relatively minor".

Part of the concept behind a crowd-sourced online service such as WOT is gamification and user recognition. That includes points and activity scores and level of contribution (platinum, gold, etc.). For some of us, that provides additional motivation to contribute. I understand that the WOT staff has many things to do. Please don't discourage user rating contributors by telling us that we should not expect this feature of WOT to be fixed because WOT staff has more important things to do.

WOT would not work without WOT user contributions. We are all essential.

[/quote]I don't intend to upset anyone; however, I don't intend to gratuitously patronise the community, either. You will simply have to rate without the added motivation of seeing your activity scores update for a while longer. I should hope that users would conscientiously submit ratings even if their activity scores were completely removed. WOT's very polite regret was quoted in this thread over three months ago; it's sufficient.
