Hi,

We have just moved into week two and the points leader board has not updated as per this tutorial
ocPortal Tutorial: Creating an economy/reward-system for members via points - ocPortal.com

I expected the posters from this week to be on the board.
The ones listed are our highest posters of all time and are like that because of the import from our RavenNuke site - none of them have posted this week gone.

Any idea, or have I misunderstood how it works?

Cheers

You're misunderstanding, the leader-board has always been to show highest of all time, with weekly snapshots.

There is a feature in the tracker for giving an option to make it 'for just this week':
0000782: Allow leader-board to show snapshots of biggest earners in a period of time - ocPortal feature tracker

I'm also naturally a joined-up thinker, so I always express my thoughts in combined business and technical terms. I recognise not everyone likes that, don't let my Vulcan-thinking stop you enjoying ocPortal on fun personal projects.

Ah ok, misunderstood that.
Is there a simple way to make it start its counts from say today as I want to try and get it to reflect activity since we moved to OCP

Cheers,

I don't think so. The system currently has no way of calculating points at a position in time, and if it was estimated, it wouldn't be an efficient-enough algorithm because there'd be no index.

Ok thanks Chris.
Hopefully 782 will get implemented soon.
I think I will just remove the leader board as the points levels obtained by lots of users who no longer frequent the site will take years for current users to obtain. I don't want to remove the points either because often users take a break, moth ball their car in a garage and then get a new lease of life and come back to us.

Cheers,
Ade
