Could it be...? mikeyboab's a... Travel Guru??

I knew the global credit crunch has had some unforeseen side affects, but this is ridiculous...

it was getting rather hard to become a Travel Guru, with only 10 gurus on the whole site

Cripes. I know i probably really shouldn't ask, but did anybody notice who the 10 were?

Mostly "old faces" (former Travel Gurus).

Indeed. A few golden oldies in there i haven't seen around much for a while (even Sole made an appearance on the forums earlier! That really is blast from the past). Come back guys!

This was due to my *brilliant* (ehem) algorithm not taking into account the possibility for one or two members to be soooooo far in front with points that they would slant the ranking

And probably just as well nobody knew it worked that way, or i figure that Greg would probably have been the only Guru out there before long!

Actually, Greg was no problem. It was more due to a couple of rather prolific guide editors :)

Forgive me if this shows my naivety here but I was curious if there is a place where we can see our own progress (such as number of points or what our current title is). I wonder if I just don't see it because of being new. Still would be a nice feature.

Something about not being a "full member" just makes me feel empty inside.

Unfortunately, there's nowhere you can see the detailed on your progress. But looking at your profile, I can see you've got some contribution to the Travel Guide. That should push you up to a 'Full Member' pretty quickly. Wait for the next title update (where everything you have in here is calculated), which is done daily, if not hourly. Just keep up the good work in the Guide, upload lots of amazing photos (you get points if your photos get featured) and participate in the forums! :)

Oh, and a warm welcome to you to TP!

Lol, elliottk, I understand what you mean. Just don't look at it. I didn't with mine, and one day there it was, I got "upgraded". Felt like a sweet personal victory.

Fixed a bug here. Both Elliot and Lil have benefited from this fix. Elliot, you've got the Full Member status now and Lil, you're up to Travel Guru!

The script was basically ignoring wiki contributions entirely, so it was people active in there who were being affected.

Oh wow, that's an unexpected promotion, yay!
(Unfortunately I don't have a lot of spare time to write much guide lately, bummer)

And hey hey, there you go Elliott, now a full member! Congrats!
