I noticed in the last couple of days that a couple of users that use to be above level 10 dropped to below level ten.One of these users was above level 20.They probably weren't modded for anything.

Here are two of the users.Sadly I don't have a screenshot of their previous levels before this happened.

More proof that this isn't just losing levels because you were suspended.

Okay people are now gaining an insane amount of levels at once to.

Please grab a screenshot of your previous level and current level to provide proof of this glitch so the tech support people can fix this glitch.Also try to avoid getting suspended until this glitch is fixed.

Perhaps a better way to handle this would have been to PM them, so they would be able to go through Customer Support if necessary. You wouldn't know if they had been moderated anyway.

True, but losing a pile of levels at once is impossible without being suspended for something that is really terrible.

Well, I know some people are getting awarded points for the level glitch before, but I have noticed an odd mess of levels gone down in some users. I haven't been affected yet, but still.

The level 1 glitch is very old. It happened to me like two years ago. I was level 1 for like three days until it got fixed(my level was like 32 or something).

My guess is some typos point-wise might have been entered, causing the jump upward, like maybe 50,000 was entered instead of 5,000.

However, I have noticed that activities around the website that used to enable you to come near the daily cap aren't being counted. It's appearing as though points have been cut by a third.

The admins have the capability of adding exp points if this isn't fixed, which is what I think will happen.

Yep I'm one of those who got that insane amount of level increase. Probably a few days ago when my level percentage increased as much as 40% in one day although I didn't do anything but posted in the forums. For someone who's in level 61 that kind of level increase is really fishy :P

I'm not talking about being rewarded points because of that level frozen glitch if that's what you are talking about.I'm talking about going from like level 63 to 70 in literally a day.

I heard wanderer5 went from like level 63 to 70 in a day and themajormayor I think went from level 20 to level 35 or something like that in a day and went back to level 2 just recently.

I can confirm the information you heard about Wanderer5 is false. I've been hovering around 8 to 12% ahead of him for almost two years now. He is supposed to be at level 70. The leveling system seems to be really messed up atm. I'd tell any and everyone to get a screen cap of their current level. It seems to hit people at random times. In fact I just gained 1% I know for sure that I shouldn't be leveling up at this hour. Leveling takes place around 4am - 7 am pst.

I just noticed I gained a percent in the last hour or two.And this leveling glitch is getting more problamatic.

I haven't been leveling at all lately. No bonuses either. I've gone up 6% since like... mid June.

It's all the same glitch. It's called GameSpot.

I would say the glitches are related and this glitch was supposed to make up for the missing levels but it causes a problem.

Glitchspot you mean.This glitch is kinda related to the level frozen glitch but it's way worse.

People have experienced the insane level drop glitch before, but now it has appeared out of nowhere since the tech support people fixed the level frozen glitch.And it's getting worse.

#22 Posted by JodyR (16412 posts) -

Here's a rundown on the users that were mentioned with the level decrease; suspensions do drop the levels.

loosingENDS was recently suspended
Kevlar101 currently suspended and he was also suspended mid July.
parkurtommo is currently suspended

You might be seeing an increase because an additiional action or two is finally giving you points for them. Those of you who use the site features will definitely see an improvement on their percentage meter lately which is a good thing! You all deserve the credit! I also believe there's a quicker turn around time to show you the increase. So, if you notice it happening earlier, that's why. We'd like to give you all some hints or tips about how to achieve levels at a later time.

I never knew you could lose 20+ levels from being suspended.I thought you only lost 2 to 10 levels usually.

#24 Posted by JodyR (16412 posts) -

One of the users had been suspended twice in a few weeks but if I knew their original level I would know if they decreased that much. I'll poke around to see if it's a hiccup or if it's still happening.

#25 Posted by JodyR (16412 posts) -

Yeah, that has to be a hiccup because I just suspended a test account that was level 64 and he went down one level.

Thanks for checking

#27 Posted by thom_maytees (3669 posts) -

Something I noticed in the last few days is how I am earning a point twice a day. For example, today, I earned a point to reach 13%, but hours latter, I earned another point to reach 14%. I have not seen this leveling behavior before.

Well Jody did say it seems to be a hiccup. Hopefully we'll get a solution to this for those affected, as I know it must suck to have been reduced like that.

Definitely, 28 might not seem like a lot but I've been levelling up for 3 damn years :P And now that's all gone.

parkurtommo
Well, I'll give you level 27. :)
#39 Posted by JodyR (16412 posts) -

It may very well be that when the suspension was issued, the back end kept suspending again and again, making the level go down. I dont see that in the mod history so I dont really know what happened.

Me level went down from 22 to 4, so could be a glitchloosingENDS
I gave you level 21. Both of you should stay out of trouble and avoid getting suspended. ;)

Thanks, I think that's pretty much spot on considering I got suspended (and there for would probably lose about 80%-90% of a level).
#41 Posted by super600 (30702 posts) -

I will PM everyone else that was suspended so they can get their levels back.

Like I said 40% bonus points for someone who's in level 61 is really fishy :P Probably something went wrong when they gave the points to me, but I won't complain :lol:

#50 Posted by JodyR (16412 posts) -

It does look like everyone that was mentioned had a suspension around the same week.

So, let me do another test with another moderation tool to see if that's issuing harsher points loss penalties than my admin tool.

EDIT: Nope, the account I tested didn't have any points reduced. So, there is definitely something fishy happening.

As for the other users, i'd need to know what level they were.
