To the best of my understanding, the medal will disappear.

deleting question loses all scores that wouldve been gained..also deleting ALL answers of one person will turn his medal count back to zero so should he post a new answer it's back to square 1

I did a test with this poor boy hector. I gave him a medal for answer and deleted it. Notice the number in the medal count under biology.
myininaya
  • myininaya
It said 3 medals under biology for medalgiven and beforemedalgiven. After the question was deleted, the medal count went down to 1.
myininaya
  • myininaya
So now the medals received for all groups doesn't add up. Also....if I gave that person a medal why is the medal count the same for medalgiven and beforemedalgiven?
lgbasallote
  • lgbasallote
side question....you did an experiment on an innocent answerer??? lol
myininaya
  • myininaya
I am evil :)

She said she was curious and I said OK.

Thanks hector for your participation.

Do you have further uses for me?
myininaya
  • myininaya
I don't need you anymore. Thanks.
lgbasallote
  • lgbasallote
uhmm did he receive 2 medals for that question?
myininaya
  • myininaya
Nope.
myininaya
  • myininaya
There were no more participators.
lgbasallote
  • lgbasallote
hmm curious...very curious
myininaya
  • myininaya
So just so we all understand... I posted the question. Hector answered the question. (Thanks again hector) I took a screenshot of his profile (called it beforemedalgiven) Then I gave him a medal Took screenshot of his profile (called it medalgiven) Deleted question Took screenshot of his profile (called it questiondeleted)
myininaya
  • myininaya
The medal count under the biology section of the profile did not change from beforemedalgiven to medalgiven. The medal count changed when I deleted the question.
myininaya
  • myininaya
But only one medal was given.
myininaya
  • myininaya
But two were taken away from the count.
lgbasallote
  • lgbasallote
you were the asker o.O then there is another discrepancy! "Medals for Answers" shouldve dropped!
hectoroftroy
  • hectoroftroy
Shouldn't it have gone from 7 to 8, then 8 to 7 when the question was deleted?
lgbasallote
  • lgbasallote
these maths dont add @_@
myininaya
  • myininaya
I wonder what kinda algorithm it is lol
lgbasallote
  • lgbasallote
this made me realize that a lot of the information in my profile could be lies :p
myininaya
  • myininaya
Well maybe they know and they are still trying to work out all of the nastiness.
lgbasallote
  • lgbasallote
probably...if i know my mods right this is @darthsid 's baby
myininaya

So now we posted the question again because I really did want an answer: the results are in the link: http://openstudy.com/study#/updates/4faf188ae4b059b524fa3268

Hm the change should propagate, but we do have a fix in the next release that will recalculate all these stats and ensure that deletions are accounted for appropriately. fingers crossed :x
lgbasallote
  • lgbasallote
maybe i should also mention that my profile has some weird discrepancies too @mattfeury mainly the fan count and the fan testimonial..what does it mean?
mattfeury
  • mattfeury
Hmm perhaps some people removed their testimonials? The count on the left is a count of the current state, but the SmartScore stat reflects how many testimonials have given you points. The fans count being higher than the stat is strange though...
lgbasallote
  • lgbasallote
yeah..my thoughts exactly :/
lgbasallote
  • lgbasallote
maybe 4 fans didnt account points? does that make sense lol
mattfeury
  • mattfeury
that's probably what that means, yea. I'll look into it. We'll get you those points :p
lgbasallote
  • lgbasallote
yay! thanks..i care about my 4 fans that are unnoticed
mattfeury
  • mattfeury
@lgbasallote @myininaya these stats should be accurate finally. If the accuracy degrades, then we've got a problem in our code, but as of now, all fans / group stat counts should be accurate.
mattfeury
  • mattfeury
If you see anything phunky, let us/me know.
KingGeorge
  • KingGeorge
I'm still seeing some small discrepancies on fans/testimonials between the sidebar and the teamwork section in my profile.
lgbasallote
  • lgbasallote
good job @mattfeury want some gum :P
mattfeury
  • mattfeury
awe sunny D, all right! @KingGeorge, you somehow didn't lose points when a particular user unfanned you. Consider your SmartScore inflated until I fix it :P, which I'll eventually get around to doing.
lgbasallote
  • lgbasallote
oh by the way @mattfeury i think you should know that this guy http://openstudy.com/users/akshay_budhkar still has a wrong score
mattfeury
  • mattfeury
What do you mean it's a "wrong score?" What's wrong about it?
lgbasallote
  • lgbasallote
well the fact that akshay was a guru in mmath group before i doubt he only has 3 medals
