STEPS TO REPRODUCE THE PROBLEM: I usually write mails in both mailing list, I write review of applications in garage and I vote as favourite some news. EXPECTED OUTCOME: Increased karma ACTUAL OUTCOME: Karma is not increased. REPRODUCIBILITY: Always EXTRA SOFTWARE INSTALLED: OTHER COMMENTS: Could it be some problems with my user? The user is andy80
Let's see. These are my values today: Karma 1521 Software 27 Bugs 512 Wiki 36 News 537 Discussion 292 Comments 30 Rating 87 and these are yours: Karma 25 Software 3 Bugs 0 Wiki 0 News 9 Discussion 12 Comments 0 Rating 1.25 (feel free adding more, so we can track them) Can you please follow in the next days and see if both values are static/moving or just one?
Yes Quim, I can track them again. Anyway I noticed this are the same values that were restored from backup few days ago. I'll try to review some other application and to add some Favourites, to see if Karma is updated in the next days.
Hi all, after two days, Karma is updated in this way: Karma 97 Software 3 Bugs 12 Wiki 0 News -5 Discussion 38 Comments 22 Rating 3.75 I don't know if values are exact or not. Can anyone please verify them?
A thing I didn't notice: why the "News" section is -5 ? How is it calculated? Thanks.
The update of your karma looks sensible. I'd say this is a WORKSFORME. News: it depends on the news karma, you might get negative values when people bury your posts.
Unfortunately for me this doesn't seem to have been working for a long time (maybe some kind of username/email/feed address problem). After several 'karma inducing' actions (at least 3 garage reviews and comments, 1 news item (+2 on the thumbs up so far), at least one mailing list comment e.t.c in the last 24 hours my karma hasn't moved and it hasn't moved for months. In the last 3 months (that I estimate it hasn't been working for me I have multiple news items that have hit the front page e.t.c. It wouldn't worry me ordinary apart from the fact that it isn't working (for me) and someone needs to be informed but when I missed out on the developer code for the n810 and there is talk of certain activities being dependent on user karma, an active and enthusiastic contributor may miss out on certain benefits :( Unfortunately as Quim suggested, I cannot reopen the bug as I'm not the originator or assignee.
Let's reopen, then.
Still nothing? Any idea's?
Given that this works for most people I'd guess for some reason (different email addresses and/or usernames used in different places ?) the user matching isn't working quite right for you. Henri did the calculations system so reassigning.
I can confirm this bug - my karma's been stuck at 3, in spite of numerous blog posts, bug comments, forum comments and a wiki addition.
same here for me though I've triaged a few bugs now: http://maemo.org/profile/view/e9f9965887f911dc87038fd356c24c2a4c2a/ - but maybe it's because of "bugzilla_reported" instead of triaging or closing :-)
I'm still stuck on 3 as of today. Dave.
Increasing severity. Not only we are carrying this bug for too long, but also it is becoming relevant since we want to consider user karma as one of the factors to be sponsored to participate in the maemo summit.
Using Dave as the test case, it seems the nightly recount has been timeouting due to the number of users karma needs to be counted for. I've disabled PHP timeouts for the script and am just making new test runs.
Yay! Karma says 138! Does this make me worthy? :) http://maemo.org/profile/view/dneary/ Dave.
I've now confirmed that karma "stuckness" was because of cron timeouts. Some fixes done: * PHP time limitations removed from the script * Cron runs are now run without Squid in between to remove that possibility of timeout Now at least karmas of the people reporting here have changed (multiple times over weekend in Dave's case), so marking this fixed.
I think that this bug should be reopened. I have submitted couple of games to maemo.org/downloads, first one is here: http://maemo.org/downloads/product/OS2008/blobwars/ None of the games show up in my profile page: http://maemo.org/profile/view/mikkov/
OK, I am reopening this bug. My "Discussion" karma is stuck at 6 http://maemo.org/profile/view/fanoush.html If this should reflect posts to mailing list I should get a little bit more than that (since 2005 :-). Most probably it is related to bug #2212 - until that bug was fixed my single email was not the one I used for mailing lists. I added that mail after #2212 was resolved but my 'Discussion' karma does not increase.
It seems many of the heavier runs (like karma recount) now fail because the server is seriously overloaded. It has been going gradually worse since MediaWiki was installed. Things will be better as soon as the new servers are installed. But apart from moving Wiki to another server as a "quick fix", there are few ways to solve this.
Light at the end of the tunnel: Seems like ISP had moved the servers, and in the process activated some watchdog script that was going awry. This meant Apache was getting killed every minute, and so any longer script (or badly-timed page load) would be aborted. Obviously heavy operations like Karma were affected. I'm running a manual recount now, and from now on cron should again start doing this.
Unfortunately, this is back. My karma has been stuck on 660 for a week or two now, despite: * Contributing to a variety of maemo-* threads * Rating /news/ * Getting favourites on my blog posts. GeneralAntilles has reported the same. It seems unlikely we've both plateaued at the same time ;-)
(In reply to comment #21) > GeneralAntilles has reported the same. It seems unlikely we've both plateaued > at the same time ;-) > Yes, my discussion karma in particular seems a bit date.
Seems karma count (or some other daily MidCOM cron script) had crashed badly (or maybe there was a reboot?) on Aug 25th, leaving the pid file in place. -rw-r--r-- 1 root root 6 2008-08-25 14:03 midcom_services_cron_day.pid Removed it and restarted daily cron.
My discussion karma seems to have fallen off a cliff (now 8 points, I note qgil has 6 points). Seems pretty low assuming it includes mailing list posts? I'm also both missing Garage projects as well as doubled up on some in the Groups listing. Lastly, which particular subheading do wiki entries (creates/edits?) affect? Are kudos points which may have been created by work on the previous wiki affected for pages which have been migrated? (fair enough if I lose all the points because I should have migrated it myself I suppose ;)
> I'm also both missing Garage projects as well as doubled up on some in the > Groups listing. Actually the doubling up is not strictly true so you can probably ignore that. E.g.: # DSP OGG Vorbis decoder # DSP OGG Vorbis decoder members I suppose the first one is because I created the project, in which case fine. Still, I at least am missing two more project which I started (and am also a member of ;)
(In reply to comment #24) > My discussion karma seems to have fallen off a cliff (now 8 points, I note qgil > has 6 points). Seems pretty low assuming it includes mailing list posts? This may be related to changes done for fixing bug #2212. My discussion karma raised from 6 to 1406. Maybe the pool of karma points is exhausted? ;-)
Karma seems to be kaput again, mine hasn't updated in at least a week.
Not wanting to kick a dieing horse but mine hasn't moved too despite lots of blogs, discussion and other contributions. Something to do with the server move?
After some auditing, the problem is simply that the growth in maemo.org user numbers has gotten to the stage where at some point the Karma recalculation script simply runs out of memory. To fix this, the karma recount has been now changed to run every hour, but run for only N users that have been modified the earliest. With this change we can tune the number of users to count per hour, and so decide whether full karma recount cycle should complete in one day, or for example two. http://trac.midgard-project.org/changeset/18492 This fix can be deployed in two different ways: * We get it automatically when the servers are upgraded to Ragnaroek (soon) * It is backported to MidCOM 2.8 so it can be installed immediately
(In reply to comment #29) > * We get it automatically when the servers are upgraded to Ragnaroek (soon) > * It is backported to MidCOM 2.8 so it can be installed immediately > We can probably just wait for the big upgrade. There's nothing going on right now dependent on accurate karma counts.
The new karma counter has been backported and deployed on the server today. We will monitor the progress for next couple of days. With current setup (300 per hour) it should complete recount in two days.
Is this new counter still recalculating the whole lot every time? If so, will the karma value keep its value during the recalculation, and only visibly update when that user's is finished? Or is the intermediary value held and exposed?
