[Bug] tagging with a list of tags brings 2 points



  • By addind a comma-separated list of tags, you earn 2 points, as for single tagging. It's not a big problem for me, but:
    Is it on purpose? (than it should be described on "points & ranks":http://developer.qt.nokia.com/ranks as "adding a tag or a list of tags..." )
    Or is it a cute little bug? ;)



  • It seems to be a bug.



  • Hum, we shall have a look, thanks.



  • bug

    Yes, mariusg is looking in to that. Maybe you can raise a bug report on this.



  • I get 2 points per tag when I tag with "testX, testY, teZt" for a total of 6 - in FF 3.6.12 and Chrome 8.0.552.215 / Win7.

    Can you list the browser/OS you're using when seeing this behavior?



  • FF 3.6.12 WinXP SP3



  • I use chrome 8.0.552.215 on win xp. for test,test tag input I get 2 points.



  • If you write "test,test" you should only get 2 points. That's a feature :)

    Note that the nightly Tag script would correct any error in the live ajax adding of points. So it's a display issue.

[/quote] This seems to me very magic: If I add "A, B, C" as a list, the tags "A", "B" and "C" will work instantly, this means: I can remove and add some of them again etc. ...and the nightly script corrects any point counting errors?

    Is there a data base from which we should be scared? ;)



  • The nightly script simply gets the tags per content item, find out who tagged it (and if they are the original tagger of that tag, if not the points goes to the original tagger), and sums it up per user.

    We have a nightly script to invalidate any sort of ajax-frontend hack/bug. I'm fairly happy we did it this way, to be honest.

    So is it that initially I get 2 points then when the nightly script runs it corrects it to one point.

    The reason for that only granting two points is that "test,test" is the same word twice. :) Two valid tags would grant four.

    I posted it because I was under the impression that a single tag gets you one point. And it seems it was like that when I had last observed. Has it been changed now to two - may be I will notice the points next time onwards when I tag.

    If you tag a thread with "foo" and someone else (let's call him Bar) removes "foo" then you loose 2 points.
    But you are saved as the original tagger of "foo", so Bar will not get points if he re-tags "foo".

    This provides a hygiene factor to tagging as it's pointless (pun intended) to tag with silly/useless tags in the long run.



  • @Marius: Insightful. Is the evaluation system of the Qt DevNet documented somewhere (open to public)?



  • Not beyond http://developer.qt.nokia.com/ranks, but I guess we could add some more information there.

    Since this community is full of engineers I should have known to write about the system in more detail from the start. :)



  • Ok, I'm staying tuned :)
