It would seem my rating has been the same for the last week even after several posts, updates to the RDB, adding some new product and a review.

Not That I Really Care or Anything :D OK maybe just a little for the ego.

Hmmm... several days, or several weeks?

I turned off a cron job that updated the ratings a while ago cause Trevor said he'd put a lot of stuff into TenFold... I'll turn it back on and see if that corrects matters.

(edit: nope, it's still running...)

ah-ha!

i found the problem:

it seems that this site has a rating system and some people actually feel better about themselves because a piece of software assigns them a rating.

ignore both and the problem is solved.

hah! ratings... when you think about it, it's pretty sad and hilarious; contributing some climbing junk to a website for 'points.'

You're right. I'm a poser for bring up a flaw in the system. It's the only thing that gives me self worth. I'll go find a rock and hide under it now.

offw... you're just sore I've got more points than you.

the software senses whether you care or not, and docks you if you do . . . (ironically, post whore = bodhisattva)

Reminds me of when Lisa Simpson's teachers were on strike;
Evaluate me! Please!

Ballsy to admit it?

or just sarcat-stic?

Due to heavy site activity all the points for July were given out early in the month, so people, like you, who were active on the site in the latter part of the month don't get any points. Better luck next month.

You guys seem to underestimate the value of the rating.

I've found that every thousand points equates to one extra grade in climbing. I've moved from 5.11a to 5.11c just by spamming.

Many people can type 5.14a. Few people can climb 5.14a.

well, we've got the T-scale for trolls, the S-scale for spray ... should this be classified as R?

R1: I have a rating.
R2: I have a high rating.
R3: My rating is higher than your's
R4: I've got one of the highest ratings.
R5: My rating on this website justifies my existence.

cool?

Once an R5 is proposed someone else will come along and claim an R6, then you'll have to attach a spray grade to that R grade. Sheesh!

Yes, definitely. We also need a name for this. Let us see...
How about rodomontade? We can name the scale rodo1, rodo2... etc.

For example, the original thread was just a pathetic attempt at rodoing..

This is fixed. Luckily, with 25,000 users only 2 or 3 users politely remind us the ratings didn't change. I really don't think this is a big of a deal as most people are making it out to be. But it is someone useful to determine how active a member is. But we are talking about broad strokes here like the difference between 1000 and 10,000 or 100,000 and 500,000.

When the only visible thing we get for adding to the site is a rating, it seems like a good thing to keep running. ;) Thanks Trevor.

And I'd just like to acknowledge that I've gotten a lot more than just a rating. I'm not ungrateful for all this place has given me. :)
