Not so fast. I just checked and I am at 796. Also did a refresh of the page---still 796!! NathalieF
So it is still not working. When I posted his error earlier tonight it was at 794, and I know I responded a lot more than twice. how do you know that I am a Rock Star---what screen were you looking at?
lone6star achieved a new participation meter: Rock Star
Maybe there is a counter and the one printed is not the same.
Ok, so i just logged in after a few days without logging in. Checked my profile count, and I was still at 799. Now I just posted 3 more comments on different discussions. I then went back and checked my counter---still at 799. I refreshed the screen---still at 799..
I guess MRI does not want me to advance to the next level! Maybe it was something I said?!!!
Another thought, count the times a person logs in. Starts a discussion or question would be good but answers are good too. In many cases some really work to supply information to people including links to where the info can be found. Some of these answers and information are what I would consider above and beyond. Or maybe, one point per thread. If you continue down the line, how is a computer to be programmed to only count certain posts?
I think if a person is striving to get points, they will continue to play the game to get them.
I have some additional details lone6star, jasper100 and others that have noticed the difference in behavior with earning participation credits... the short answer is the participation meter is working as expected but participation credits have been reconfigured since the introduction of the new badges. Instead of earning a participation credit for each and every reply to a discussion, you'll now earn participation credit based upon replies to questions and for having your answers marked as helpful or correct. It is a change we should have surfaced so the system wouldn't have appeared broken, but the change is at least a tiny step towards recognizing quality content and contributors instead of only overall participation. Hope that helps.
