My Reputation seems to be stuck

2,592 517 September 13, 2017 at 06:26 AM
I've noticed my reputation has been at 265 for quite a while. Yesterday, I was given a "rep" for helping someone, and today, my rep is STILL at 265, even though yesterdays rep is clearly there.

I had joked with the rep-giver that I appreciated it since my rep has been at 265 forever, but it seems there is some glitch.

Ideas?

Hi Smilie

I looked and here's what happened.


The rep you received yesterday (as well as a few before that) were from newer members who's reps don't give points yet. They can still rep/write a message but it doesn't add any points. When you look at your reps and it has a grey box next to it, that'll be from a new member.

Thank you. Lesson learned is not to help new users as there is no reward. laugh out loud

But that isn't true Smilie you still have their gratitide, and eventually their reps will "count."

I appear to be having a similar issue. I had this deal post: https://slickdeals.net/f/10577812-origin-sale-battlefield-1-revolution-edition-pc-39-99-origin-com-and-more

From that, five users gave me rep, but I received 0 rep points. Only 1 of them appears to be a new user.

New member can also be older member with super low post count.. so the system sees them as a new member.

*That doesn't mean we allow post count building type of posts (for those reading this and wanting to up that count).. posts need to be normal interaction in the community, thanks Smilie

Not really relevant in this case, but thank you.

it is relevant Smilie. it's the answer to your question/comment. any member that is still in "new user" status will give 0 points when they rep. as mentioned, "new user" isn't simply a reflection of their account age, but overall participation on the site, so even members that have had accounts registered for some time can be in that category.

Ahhh, now I get it. I didn't realize it was specifically the "New User" status. Thank you for that clarification. I checked again and indeed 4 out of the 5 were shown as "New User."
