Editor score update

So I see there was an update on how the reviews are scored. But my reviewer score went down from 89 to 34. I now have a minus 30 on the editorial analysis. Surely this is not right?

I went from level 3 to level 0. My score dropped 50 points as well. I'm glad I'm not the only one experiencing this issue. I hope it is resolved soon. I was really upset when I saw it.

I went to a 0 as well. It's got to be an issue with the update.

Let's hope they fix it soon. I refuse to believe that I have to start all over. It's time-consuming trying to level up and score points!

I hear you. I would hate to have to start all over soon. I know Scott works hard, so I'm sure he's on it.

Editorial Score Changes

Post Number:#6 by Scerakor

Good evening all!

I know there have been some updates afoot with respect to the editorial scoring, and perhaps this will work it out on its own, but I just wanted to make sure. From what I have read, the new scoring system should use an average of the previous system with the new one (at least initially). That being said, is there any reason why my reviewer points should go from what I had previously (18 I believe) directly to "-30" on the new system? Will the straighten itself out upon the first published review after today or should I report this to Scott?

Thanks!

Is anyone else still missing points? I gained majority of them back but I still lost a level. Is anyone else still having issues?

I don't know how the rating system works. I was nearly at level 5 at one point but as soon as my newest review got published, I lost all access to paid review opportunities. -.-

Wow, and here I was upset with losing 12 points. Can't imagine how you must be feeling. Though it does make me feel better knowing that it's not just me experiencing these problems. Hope this is resolved soon.

It's been somewhat resolved for me... I suppose. I still lost five points that lowered my level. I'm still pretty upset about it but I'm trying to let it go by spamming the forum with a whole bunch of posts to get those points back.

Yeah. I dropped a level as well, but it's better than starting over at 0.

Same here. I dropped one level but I'm not overly concerned, I was on the line between the two anyways. Thanks Scott (and others?) for taking care of this!

Please see the following sticky topic in the Suggestion Box:

viewtopic.php?f=3&t=21694

The Suggestion Box is not for reporting issues or questions with the Review Team.

This issue mentioned was a brief glitch during the update and I fixed it as soon as it was brought to my attention. Sorry for any inconvenience.
