We're always listening to your feedback very closely and today we've made yet another change that a lot of you have requested! 🙂 Our rank algorithm which computes ranks based on user activity definitely needed a few tweaks and improvements after all these years!
The goal was to balance it so that the biggest contributions you all make to the community, like adding patterns, tutorials and getting rewards give you the biggest advantage. But please keep in mind that this doesn't mean other actions like replying to forums, writing comments or giving ratings don't count, because everything counts, even just browsing the website or using our app! It's just that for those contributions the number of "rank points" you get is a bit lower.
Another pretty significant change we did is making it harder to gain the last 2 ranks (Professional and Bracelet King). This was also requested by a lot of you over the time and was understandable as all those numbers were set up a long time ago when the number of active users and patterns you all post was quite a bit lower 🙂.
We discussed and planned all of the changes with our moderators, so we all really hope you'll like it! 😇
Happy tying everyone and thanks for reading! 🙂
