Something wrong with calculating contribution in travelguide

Travel Forums System Talk Something wrong with calculating contribution in travelguide

Hi,
I noticed there is something wrong with calculating the contribution in the travelguide. Just check burgos and monterrico for example, or the great wall. I just made made a small edit in the first two, and got 100% contribution. Nice for me of course, but something is not right at all, because obviously this can not be the case.

Yeah, there's problem with the hourly update of the contribution calculation. My contribution to the Great Wall of China article is not in there at all.

Interesting. I found the problem. But it's not at all a new bug - it's been there since at least October last year. Actually, I'm pretty sure it's been there for as long as the calculations have been in place. I've fixed up the three mentioned ones, but I think I'll go ahead and just recalculate all the articles tomorrow to make sure it's accurate. This definitely would cause a lot more to be wrong.

Thanks Peter.
Still, I only found it quite odd during the last week/two weeks or so, not before.

Yeah, funny that. The only other thing I can think of is that the upgrade to our database server a little while back caused it - sometimes queries can behave slightly differently under new versions. The way I had it before was wrong either way, but maybe the older version allowed for a bit of stupidity like that ;)

the same for Sochi, maybe. I wrote a fair bit, but have no count at all.

I'd actually found it has been miscalculating for quite some time (certainly several months).... I just assumed that it was an ongoing issue.... thanks for pointing it out Utrecht!
