Missing wowhead reputation increases
Return to board index
I'm a fellow user of the Wowhead Client and upload once if not twice a day my collected game stats after I quit playing WoW for the day. I'm also a frequent user of the *great* Wowhead website, especially to search its database, as you may guess.
: When looking at my wowhead site reputation, I *
* (3 on 4 times I'd say) miss the +25 reputation points for uploading data. The +5 points for the site visit are collected without any default -- I can provide a screenshot if requested.
I've tried several approaches to wait a couple of minutes before I upload the data with Wowhead client, then wait some more minutes before reopening my FF browser/tab to Wowhead but there is no consistent pattern I can see.
Now I frequently toggle from English to French and vice-versa, because I'm playing in (and speaking) French. But I don't see the relationship either.
Does someone have a clue about what may go wrong here ? Can I help in tracking this down ?
Thanks for your advice and precious support !
Here's the issue:
Uploaded data using the
** 25 reputation
** You can earn a maximum of 50 weekly reputation from uploading with the Wowhead Client. This cap will reset each week.
You are correctly receiving two +25s a week but that's the maximum we give people for uploads. If it were unlimited it would be pretty easy to game the system.
Although we only give rep for the first two each week we do appreciate all your uploads so please keep them coming.
Yep, I just upload all at once each week on Sunday. Then once more at random during the week (or even same day)... it accumulates so waiting until each Sunday doesn't hurt anything except my Upload Count which is irrelevant to anything anyhow.
It's been several months since there was an issue getting reputation from uploads.
Oho. My apologies, I didn't notice that. Oups.
Is it better to keep them loading up every day or should I do it twice a week to avoid too many connections on the Wowhead site ?
Thanks for your answer asakawa. Cheers !
I wouldn't say loading it any more or less is a bad thing. Doing it twice a week just ensures you get the rep, but you can still do it more to load data.
I know from just logging on and doing just a few things, like a couple quests on an alt, will have some stuff to upload to the site. Now you can either upload it then, or wait until late, but either way it'll help out in some way.
Yeah there's no need to adjust your usual routine. Whatever you find best/easiest is great for us.
Ok thanks. I'll keep my good habits then. ;-)
