Nosediving & Skyrocketing: WA Member Ranks Jan 10, 2018

Last Update: January 10, 2018

I pay so little attention to my rank, I wasn't sure - had I jumped up substantially overnight (as it seemed), or had I been moving up slowly without noticing?

I went to the "Top 200 Members" page to see. I had, indeed, jumped in rank. That's hardly "post-worthy". It's what else I saw as I glanced at the rank changes that prompted this post.

Many of you probably saw falls and jumps like these with the big algorithm change some months ago, but I hadn't. I wasn't in the top 200 then and noticed rank even less than I do now.

My sympathy to those who went down in rank. But - wow - look how many members went up - and by how MUCH! Congratulations to all of you!

An especially big "congratulations" to Laetyn, for moving up 13k places! (Laetyn: I made a graphic for you, to mark your monumental achievement. It's yours if you want it).

Because the screen shots were SO much wider than the max width WA allows, I squished things together as best I could. But, that's the only editing I did. All the numbers are accurate.

That it might be a glitch didn't occur to me until I was pasting the screen shots in. My apologies if that's the case and I wound up wasting your time!

Thanks, Mike! It feels pretty weird to be in the top 200. I actually got there accidentally.

For me, rank # is relative. If I'm writing blog posts, my ranking goes down. If I'm blocked at the writing, I comment a lot and my ranking goes up.
Maybe for full timers it's different...

What was so weird about my 40-pt jump in rank was that I did almost nothing at WA yesterday that would have, so far as I know, affected my rank that much.

I don't pay much attention to rank, so I was really surprised by the big numbers I saw, up and down, when I looked at the top 200.
