member rankings - it was a bug!

Travel Forums System Talk member rankings - it was a bug!

Well, I'm sure there will be a few pleased people today. It turns out that those members stuck on the Budding Member level actually shouldn't have been. For a strange reason, the code was ignoring those unranked members when running the algorithm. This wouldn't have effected the climb in rankings for anyone who already had Full Member status, but it has affected those stuck on the Budding Member status.

It is fixed now with some very interesting results. Niels (bentivogli) and Mike (MikeyBoab) should be particularly pleased as they have risen to Respected Member without even ever touching Full Member status :) (and may I add that neither are far from Guru either..)

Apologies to all of you.. hopefully everything makes more sense now ;)

Does that mean Mikey will be stripped off his title for 'First Budding Member to reach 2000 posts'?

I had just discovered that, can't deny being pleased. Still, I think I'll continue my crusade against the member ranking, see my latest post in the other thread... :)

Peter, you could have waited a little longer... like until someone has 3000 posts!

Lol, that's partially what made me double check the code. It just seemed too strange. It's not meant to be that hard to become a full member!
