[SOLVED] Rank points vanishing?



  • Although I'm not a maniac with rank points, I've noticed that sometimes I loose points for no apparent reason. Have I been a bad boy or what? :-)

    "Points expire after 12 months.":http://qt-project.org/ranks We have to be active if we want to keep our rank at Qt Project :)



  • Hi leon,

    Yes, I know that, but I've never been inactive for so long. Actually I'm talking about sth different. Yesterday I had 490 points and today I woke up with 489... :-)

    There are several reasons which might have caused it. May be someone has removed a tag that you have added earlier or may be a point that you have achieved a year ago has expired. It might be even a bug :)

    A removed tag would make sense, although I haven't added any recently and all I have added are just a few and very relevant. As for the expired point, it seems a little fuzzy. I mean, my understanding from the "rank page":http://qt-project.org/ranks is that all points expire after a year of inactivity, no?

    No, the points expire after 12 months no matter if you are active or not. For example if I earn 5 points today on 29 November 2014 these 5 points should be subtracted from my account.

    Oh, I see. IMHO, the rank page should mention that explicitly because it's not clear now. Thanks for clearing things up.

    I totally agree with you. This part of description of points & ranks should be more user-friendly :)
