Re: Top Contributors - May 2020

It's more of the talk of how I almost magically went up in the leaderboard and the mention of moved threads that might have put me ahead. Specifically, I did not move that large thread discussing bravos.

@darlicious , @pm-smayer97  it also could be that it a marketing tool/ transparency tool, to say hey we gave out rewards.

 

As for the the shout out, leader board, I am sure there was reasoning behind thoseythose decisions.

 

As for determining who got what if it's that important for you, the tools are available and you just need to take   it upon yourself to do the leg work.

 

Maybe it's time to focus on the core function of the community (providing support)  rather than dwelling on statistics,  the constant bickering/ tracking Bravo's, speculation  on rewards based on Bravo's etc.  I'm sure it will lead to a much more enjoyable experience for all involved.

 


Absolutely it IS a marketing tool. Of course it is. We all know that is part of their selling point.

 

But if PM was truly worried about threads like this garnering "bonuses" of whatever kind, they could easily post and lock the thread...but they do not. The problem arises when people get into snits and complain about someone trying to game the system...people get VERY defensive and protective.

 

Not sure why any one cares so much...after all, it is not like there is a lot of money at stake...most people, even when they try will only earn a small amount. They can get ANY job or trade or invest and earn more money that can be earned here. So I do not know why so many get all worked up about it....but enough did...that is why there is no Leaderboard anymore. Pointless, as I pointed out.

 

And as I have said, I do like musing about their system...for one main reason...I like playing with numbers. Another forum I am in (for which I am one of the equivalent "oracles" for a product with a much bigger customer base) for the longest time we ran a thread about different number patterns we see in real life...just for fun. It keeps people engaged on a lighter note.

 

I agree...too much bickering over nothing...  making mountains out of mole hills...It would be a much more pleasant place if people would just "live and let live" (as long as no harm was being done) and not be so exacting.

@will13am 

How is I'm to blame for this? I posted my "congratulatory" commentary along with the list of member rankings. Then a discussion about the evolutionary changes of community reward calculations was brought up among @pm-smayer97  @ShawnC13 and @Korth . After much discussion among themselves I decided to comment. Then @z10user4 takes it upon himself to add this to the "discussion" :

 

 

@darlicious 

Say what now?! Coming from the one that went to war over being able to talk about just about everything in the Discussions category....

 

I suppose as one of the few women participating on a regular basis in the community i should just shut up and take it? Should I flip off my shoes and get in the kitchen while I'm at it? If I'm going to be needlessly called out....im going to respond and stand up for myself!

 

You know.....ive mentioned before a big salad with lots of stuff in it would be a lot healthier but still provide that savoury crunch factor you are seeking while being entertained.

Fantastic. Now the woman card has been pulled. I've already explained my motivations behind what I said. It was in response to you saying these things should just as well be dumped down to the lounge which I found a little rich coming from you after all your wars.

So why do we bother with this announcement thread at all? As I said originally its just an easy bravo earner for those with a quick draw. We already get notified of the badges being awarded and all discussion on the subject can be left to the unofficial thread in the lounge.
