Tales of the Lost Post Ratings
« on: November 27, 2011, 07:59:00 pm »
Earlier tonight, an admin found, deep in a closet of the basements of the Omnimaga headquarters, alongside remains of exploded lobsters, a crate of no less than 808 unclaimed post ratings, all destined to DJ_O. For some reason, the post rating system forgot they existed. We then gave back the ratings to DJ_O, who said they were probably lost during a downrating attack back in 2010 when he still was admin. "I think those 800 extra ratings were due to someone undoing the Bungie attack, but he uprated way too many posts compared to what Bungie downrated. However I manually decreased my respect back to its actual value afterward. The rest might be due to one of my account deletions, though.", says DJ_O. DJ_O now owns, at the time of writing, a whooping respect of +2151. Other peoples also claimed lost post ratings, such as Eeems, who recently recovered about 20 of them.

Netham45 also came up with an useful tool so you can check which posts you got up/downrated. No more complaining about your downrates! Admins also gets a tool to easily undo mass-downrates, in case it will ever happen again, much like last time with Eeems or ephan. Admins had a hard time recovering from it, having no idea of what to do but messing in the SQL databases directly, the downrater finally manually uprated the victims again.

Edit (Netham45): It should be noted that you need a minimum of 50 respect to use it.

Edit (Netham45): It should also be noted that spamming +1's on people so they can get to 50 is in violation of the rules. Thanks for not abusing the rating system.

Edit (Ztrumpet): 50 respect requirement removed.

I got a downrate on my very first Grammer post :/ I did not find negative comments nor did I think my post had anything negative in it :( Oh well, I can't really complain I guess, but I do wish if somebody had an issue with it, they could have told me :/

@DJ_O: Every user plus a thousand bots all got together to downrate it >:D

Oh ok lol. I was confused. I notice now that my post rating goes up/down by 1 every post in the list :P

Also for me the list is incredibly huge lol XD. I must have gotten about 4000 ratings.

Yeah I too found some random constructive posts that got downrated for some reason o.O I think it was probably the result of spamming angry members tho.  This is really useful and cool !

Btw Juju I think those 800 extra ratings were due to someone undoing the Bungie attack, but he uprated way too many posts compared to what Bungie downrated. However I manually decreased my respect back to its actual value afterward. The rest might be due to one of my account deletions, though.

Btw suggestion:

Have the post rating displayed besides your total rating, such as: Re: F-Zero Progress Thread   -   2151 (0)

Or something like that, and put an exclamation mark if the post has a negative rating.

This is a pretty cool feature, it lets you know (in most cases) what kind of stuff to avoid doing in the future.
Is there a way to access it from Profile btw?

We wanted to keep new users from complaining about being downrated on every post as much as possible.
