Why doesn't my rank update?

I currently have 223 points under my username. For some reason it still says that I am a newcomer not a youngster. Do the mods or whoever manages this site have to go through everybody's profile to check if somebody has gotten a new rank? Or is it usually automatic? Is there something that I can do to fix this or do I have to wait a bit?

Thanks in advance.

It's an automatic process. However, sometimes the site is slow to update. Do you know how long ago you crossed the 150 point mark?

About two or three days ago.

The ranking system had an issue a few days ago. It may have something to do with it. Give it a couple days to see if it corrects itself.

Oh ok, that is probably why. Thanks for the help.

Yeah, another extra 40 points makes me pretty happy too.

For some reason I have 339 points currently and the little bar on my profile shows that there is two bars past apprentice, which is probably due to the status problem.

You aren't the only one who it's happened to. Gandalf had a similar issue with the points graphic. It seems to have been resolved in his case.

Yes, this seems to be the exact same case, but that thread was a whole month ago. Are you sure they fixed the issue?
March 21, 2010 8:01:45 PM

I think it's the same reoccurring issue.

I'm still a Newcomer :cry:  Mwaaaaahhh!

And my sig just disappeared again. This place is so exciting and unpredicable. Stimulates the blood!
March 31, 2010 4:44:56 PM

same here :) 
March 31, 2010 6:16:43 PM

We actually decided we didn't want any more members, so we broke everything to discourage you from staying :lol: 


Just kidding of course. Seems like the rank should be a pretty simple thing, so I don't know what is up. Does it only affect Newcomer -> Next rank, or are all ranks frozen?

Alright I'll leave ;) .

I have only seen the problem on newcomers, but probably because they gain the ranks the quickest. I should be an apprentice, but I am still a lowly newcomer :( .
March 31, 2010 7:37:31 PM

Yeah, that's what I wasn't sure of. I still have another 1500 points before my next "advancement" (guess I'd better get to work).
March 31, 2010 7:46:39 PM

If you want, you can post 375 posts on this thread if you want to get 1500 points ;) 
March 31, 2010 7:48:18 PM

Unfortunately, that sort of spam is frowned upon here (can't imagine why) :lol: 

A week or two hopefully.

It's not just Newcomer. I've seen it happening with Youngster as well. It's hard to tell if it's happening with the other ranks because they take longer to reach.

Mine says I have -391 points to reach Veteran level. :o

With a face like that, what do you expect?

That's me after I found out I should have gotten the next level and I didn't. What else do you expect me to do? :lol:

Because of the nature of the way the ranking system works, points and rank don't update for the first 7 days or so in the new month. Should be updating now though.

Cool! Not sure why it acts that way, but at least that explains things.

Thanks for the info! [:isamuelson:9]
April 8, 2010 8:08:53 PM

Ah, good to hear. Very odd though. I assume that is the same reason why badges don't update?
April 9, 2010 3:21:30 AM

It rests on the first 6 days and works on the 7th day.

Samuelson--can't send a PM out, get a 404. I thought I saw a ref to Happauge TV station in your sig, but I misinterpreted.

I don't suppose you know why we get 404's when sending PM's?
April 9, 2010 3:23:51 AM

Except its now the 8th-9th day. I guess it partied too much during its week off. My monthly rank did finally update to April, but no luck on my rank up or badges (so I guess it kills my old joke of just trying to get rid of newcomers).
April 9, 2010 4:04:39 PM

^ Yup. I concur with EXT64. Definitely something else is going on. I've never seen it take THIS long to update my ranking.
April 9, 2010 6:59:38 PM

Mmm nom nom
April 9, 2010 7:01:29 PM

Still stuck
April 9, 2010 8:00:25 PM

Well, I would not be too disappointed if they never fixed the rank, as I like the name "veteran" better than "addict" anyway.

:p  I'm ranked Globally Higher than you but I'm 83 points behind you!! :p  (at time of post)

Yes, the system is still stuck it looks like... but I want to be an addict since my wife says I am anyways!! [:mousemonkey:5]
April 9, 2010 9:33:59 PM

I am still a newcomer even though I am almost halfway to becoming a regular. Maybe it will work on the 8th day next month.
April 10, 2010 3:37:09 AM

Yeah, the monthly ranking (and other # rankings) seem to update daily only (and normally at night).
April 10, 2010 4:30:35 AM

Im 300 Pts above veteran thia is making me unhappy :)  :(  :)  :(  :bounce
April 10, 2010 4:39:46 AM

I'm sure it's frustrating that the stats haven't updated yet. However, remember, this site isn't a contest to establish 'status.' This site is to find answers, help those with questions, and promote the spread of information.

The admins are aware that the points and badges aren't updating. Please be patient.

Any way I can remove the obstructing "Feedback" tab on my right scrollbar?
April 10, 2010 1:06:02 PM

Graywolf i agree 100% especially when im on my iphone. They shoild have an option to turn it off.
April 10, 2010 1:11:55 PM

Well, I used Adblock plus to remove the word "Feedback", however the red tab remained so I don't think that did it :lol: 
April 10, 2010 4:45:15 PM

Well, just to add my voice to the issue, I'm now stuck on apprentice.

This is a very popular thread. It's fun griping [:mousemonkey:2] instead of always answering everyone else's Q's.

Graywolf, why is that every new post it is a new different color?

Because she can!
