Re: Weighted bravos - is this actually a thing?

Goodness...if bravos were weighted by the bravo-giver's tenure and rank, a bravo from @Luddite would probably crash through the floor and collaterally bravo several other posts before it settled.  And nevermind the weight of a solution...  Smiley Surprised


I used to think that bravos were everything, but I'm not so sure any more.  I've started thinking that pure post count might be far more important in the calculations.  Unfotunately, that also means that someone could post random messages and earn rewards. The good news happens to be that if people are going to go through the effort of posting messages, the vast majority of members will actually try to help.

Thanks for the compliment. Fortunately I´m used to carrying a heavy load:

EDIT: if you look at that help/FAQ page (https://productioncommunity.publicmobile.ca/t5/help/faqpage), it references other feature PM doesn't use either, like Facebook integration (ability to sign into the community using your Facebook account).  I'm now more convinced than ever that this is a generic help file that PM hasn't bothered to customize to match what they are offering in the community.  It's kind of sad that this has gone to production this way.  @Alan_K you guys may want to revise the content in the FAQ page to take out features not enabled here, customize the vernacular (like bravo instead of kudo), etc.

 


That explanation makes sense. Although it does come across as a little amateurish (especially for a company as big as Telus). Obviously it as no affect on service, but it is like spelling mistakes on a resume and it makes you wonder what else is being skipped over.

Re: Weighted bravos - is this actually a thing?

@kelvarnsen I've only tracked my Bravos and rewards for last month, but I got a bit of insight.  The leaderboard basically tells you who's on the top and who will be receiving the highest rewards.  Their count Bravos is 1:1 as identified on the leaderboard and your profile (if you know otherwise, please let me know). However, the total number of people on the leaderboard might not be used to determine % of people who will be getting rewards.  As there are two categories, members and guests, only members can get rewards.  Thus the total number of members is used in the count. Which might explain how the % this month was only based on a third of the number of participants.  While in March, because of the promos I'm speculating a lot of the guests converted to members and was probably the reason for the high % of rewards given out.

I highly suspect it is something along those lines. I have looked at some of the statistics that are avaialble on this platform, and anything else seems too convoluted for anyone, including PM to implement. Of course, there are likely additional info to which PM has access that we do not see and there is still some nuanced variation they may be applying, but I doubt it strays too far from this.

The bravo leaderboard is pretty good indication, but I can tell you that it's not an absolute list of who will get the rewards at each level.  As you said, we do not know how many community badges at each level will be awarded.  I also do know that it is very possible for members further down in the bravo leaderboard to receive a higher than expect reward than you'd expect because of other factors.  Bravos are not the only thing involved in the calculations.
