    @MandoChip thanks a lot! You are really friendly, I really appreciate your posts!

    Thanks!

    Statistically speaking it's not normal. Patrons should be motivated to give more comments and ratings. I am not talking only about positive ratings, but participation should be promoted, not passiveness.

    Indeed @Lock_S_Foils, nice new avvy!

    Don't sweat it @Krali Marko Vizla, It happens to the best of us! :D (Look at my stats... and I'm not doing too shabby at all!)
    But don't just look at your likes, also look at your other positives!
    Combined, you handed out only 40 positives (give or take) more than you received. (on around a 1000 [one thousand!!!] positives in total!!)

    Also, you've been here for a year now? (Happy Cantinaversary by the way!! :cool:) But look at the amount of "Great Post"s you've received in a year!
    I'm coming up on 4 years here and you got more than me! (not fair... :()

    So don't let the apparent askewness
    (is that even a word? Well it IS now!! :p) lessen your enjoyment here! ;)
    You are welcome and your presence here IS appreciated, so stay for as long as you like! (no pun! :D)

    Thanks! Yes I made an year, and got the iron medal :D Hey I am really enjoying it, and I think other people enjoy too, I just don't understand if you read my post just click some button. If you like it click a like, if you don't like tell me why. I want to know, I want interaction!

    Maybe I overdo the things a bit. I don't want to complain really, i quite enjoy the community here! I draw maybe a parallel with another site where I post my 3d models, I get 10 000 downloads a month, but only 50 likes. I don't understand, if my model is worth downloading, why don't they click the like button. Same with the alien thread and the screenshots thread here, hundreds of views but just a handful of likes. Why? Are we doing something wrong? I hope not.

    BTW no one replayed about the new trophies. My post here is serious, why don't we have some new incentives, something more updated, the mandalorian show?

    Hoomans are strange creatures! They can be nice and considered neigbors and then they go and vote Palpatine into Office! :confused:
    Sometimes they are just greedy and they download what you got to offer. Maybe they forgot to go back and like!

    You see it a lot on YouTube, tens of thousands of views, but only a few hundred likes... (I think that is because a lot of people see the video's through a playlist or they have it playing in the background, with "autoplay" activated! (so it automatically plays the next recommended video!) :rolleyes:
    This way a lot of videos are watched but don't get liked by everyone who sees it and even enjoys it. :(

    When I read a comment and I like it, I like it!
    When I'm in a thread and I read a comment Ithink is funny, I vote it (chewbacca)! Or (yoda 2), or(c-3po)... and a great post gets a "Great Post"! :)

    Often when I come a post that makes me go "Meh.." or disagree with, I'll ignore it instead of giving a negative vote.
    Most people find it either (or both) difficult to give and/or receive criticism. Some people actually appreciate to discuss differences of opinion, but alas they are not as common as one would like. (even if many claim to do so, only few of tham practice what they preach!)
    Also many who do ventilate fheir difference of opinion, have trouble doing this in a friendly, non-aggressive way... so that doesn't help either. ;)

    There are also plenty of people who just pop by (here, on YT or any other forum, blog, or the like) and drop their opinion, preconceptions or brainless ramblings without any interest in other peoples opinions. Sometimes they are Trolls and the best thing one can do is ignore them and don't get caught in endless discussions that one already knows will never get them anywhere! And giving negative ratings will usually only result in exactly that!

    So yeah... just like the real world out there it's maybe not perfect, but we try to keep things friendly and non-toxic in here.
    But who knows... I've also had some great discussions with members whom I (sometimes vehemently) disagreed with, without letting it dissolve into nasty mudfights.
    Mutual respect is the key-word here.

    Ps- Updates on rating icons is rare. Ofcourse someone needs to free some spare time to (pixel)draw these and then we all need to agree these are necessary changes... Getting people to agree is difficult at the best of times! But when it comes to Star Wars... :rolleyes:
    --- Double Post Merged, Nov 27, 2020 ---
    And New Trophies... well... first there need to be new occasions/reasons to earn them...

    Since few days my stats are not moving. The progress bar is stacked at 43% and didn't move for about a week. May I ask please someone to check it.

    Once you get into the advanced levels, it takes a lot longer to "level up"... the progress bar is accurate.

    It's not all about the numbers, and the ranks aren't designed to be achieved in a year or less. The Cantina experience should be more marathon, not a race. Patience, young padawan.
    :)

    No. The bar is just stack at this level. It was moving the week before, a couple of percent per day. Now is stacked since a week.

    Yeah. That happens. After continued interaction you'll likely earn more trophies and then you'll see the bar will progress.

    Mine's been "stuck" at 51% for a couple months. It's simply because I haven't been posting as much. It's just the way it rolls.

    I am posting every day and I get quite some likes and positive rating. It's simply stack and I suspect something's wrong in the forum's scripts.
    --- Double Post Merged, Dec 4, 2020, Original Post Date: Dec 4, 2020 ---
    I told you already that's not the case. Slow or fast it should move, and my level is not so high.

    No, that's exactly what we're telling you. The higher you get ranked, the longer it takes to get the next level. The percentage meter takes longer to move.

    We'll look into it, but it takes a while.

    The progress bar moves faster until 43% and then slows down to zero for a week? my trophy points didn't move a single digit since a week. I want to have your algorithms guys! I am really jealous about your programming!

    This is I guess in order to test the new padawan's patience :D and trust in the force!

    I haven't watched mine in ages, but I'm pretty sure it's not a constant update, it does it in increments. But I don't pay it that much mind.
    As I said, I'll look into it and see if something buggy is going on.

    This is the answer I was expecting when i placed my post.

    Thanks! Please check, the matter is not urgent anyway.

    And not this one:

    thanks for your replay, but it doesn't help at all.

    It's the same thing, said differently. Insults don't help you answer your questions.

    I felt insulted by:

    It doesn't need to be genius to know that when you level up it takes longer to reach the next level. Being Mod doesn't mean you can patronize people calling them "young padawan :)"!
    When I report a problem the last thing I expect is someone to insult me. If you can't help, thanks, but please don't replay jokes.

    That was not an insult. And if you took it that way, you could have stated the fact instead continuing to devolve the conversation, or you could have reached out to another mod.

    I've told you what I believe the "problem" you're seeing is, and I told you I will look into it to see if there is a problem. End of conversation.
