Does RU Rating Go Up The Longer You Stay?

Mon Jun 16, 2008 4:25 am

My 3 year birthday is today, and my RU rating went up from 16 to 20, without any additions that I can see (though I may be forgetting somebody). Do you get a boost the longer you stay here?

Cheers,
Cameron

No, it does not change because your account is older, but it is because the members that respect you have a higher respected rating. So if you were respected by member A, and member A's respect rating went from 10 to 50, then your respected rating will also be increased. This information can be found by clicking on the RU: 20 right next to your join date  Smile

I believe the increase in RU rating (mine went up as well) has to do with the fact that quite a few long time (and quite respected) members have either cancelled their membership accounts recently or had their membership accounts cancelled recently.

 checkmark  Mine went up from 42 to 50. There is always one user with an RR of 100 and the other RRs are sort of a percentage of that one. If a number of users with high RRs leave, the influence on RRs that the remaining users have increases.

I've seen the list on another website.

There are a lot of very familiar names on it.

We lost the person with the highest RR. When he left, that made everything jump.

Could someone briefly explain the purpose of the RU rating? I have been looking in Help and can't find the actual reason for it. How does a person's RU rating affect how the site works? I'm afraid I just don't see the point.

I think he was referring to Mendis, who's account was removed, seeing as he was perma-banned anyways.

On another note, I can't add people to my RU list. It adds them, but when it says "click here to see how your profile turned out"...the names don't appear. Any ideas whats happening here. Thanks.

RU is just a better measurement of respect than post count or join date, although the system is not perfect.

Blimey - if this is so then there must be a significant number of leavers! My RU rating jumped by 14 in the last week ago (with no new additions  Sad ) , having been stable for many months.

Oh dear - given the current situation here I would prefer a lower rating and more members staying.

Yup, not to mention quite a few of them had a very high respect rating.

Its more of a "I like you rating" rather than a respect rating.

Yeah I know.

It isn't a good situation from a couple of different perspectives.

These cathartic events are unavoidable in a civilized group setting, once its share of those inclined toward deviant social behavior reaches a critical mass. Unrepentant survivors of that first purge might consider the somewhat more honorable alternative: seppuku, provided as part of the Edit Profile options.

Explain again what behavior do you consider 'deviant' in this case?
