A mysterious level increase glitch has been discovered by a user on OT.People's levels have increased by 4 or more levels in a day?

http://www.gamespot.com/forums/topic/29280537/gs-level-glitch

It's impossible to go up by that much in a day because of the daily percentage cap.

Yeah, this has happened to a few users. Not sure why yet.
#3 Posted by Venom_Raptor (6958 posts) -

I noticed today when I signed in that my level increased by 67%. I hope that won't get subtracted.

Let this be a glitch you guys dont try to fix. :D

If you leave it as it is, I will consider it reperations for my old moderations.

Actually you reminded me of the other stupid thing: the edit limit tied with the 2 posts-per-minute limit.

Now THAT needs an additional 2-3 levels for me to forgive. Because its not even a glitch. There's no excuse.

I went up by a whole level and a few percentages.

Didn't think it was a glitch until I saw this though because my % has been getting frozen for days and I thought maybe they were giving us extra % to make up for lost time. I guess not.:(

#11 Posted by michaelP4 (16680 posts) -
It should also probably be noted that this bug happened for a few users whenever the levels were frozen for about a week or two then were restored. So that may have something to do with it.
#12 Posted by Grawse (4342 posts) -
Nothing is wrong, please ignore this.
#13 Posted by Dariency (9406 posts) -

My level percentage was frozen for several days, again, so maybe we just got a boost.

Did I say otherwise?

Same goes for the BONK that baconbits mentioned (the only thing I get now is 5## errors). We are talking about things on GS that have annoyed us at some point or another.

And as for the 2 posts-per-minute including edits as well... that has happened a couple years ago as well, and back then it wasnt identified as a glitch iirc.

Maybe idk, but I doubt it's that much of a boost. :P Mine is frozen.

Wow, you got a 29 level boost. Makes this account already higher than your old rofl.

#29 Posted by thom_maytees (3669 posts) -

It seems that I am not the only one who received a Level boost as my Level went up from 48 to 50. It has been very strange the last several days for me, as I have been earning around three to seven percentage points a day. Some days, I see my percentage increase more than twice than a day.

I do not mind this "glitch" as this is what I always wanted since my Level was frozen for about two weeks more than a month ago.

#30 Posted by Noteldnep (20167 posts) -
I was surprised to see that I went up 11 levels (from Lv. 24 to Lv. 35). ;)
#31 Posted by glez13 (8972 posts) -

Yesterday I think I was level 41 at around 80-90% percent. Today I'm 42 at 41%. :?

#32 Posted by megagene (23030 posts) -
My level increased, but coincidentally it was by the amount that it should have all along had it not been for glitches and frozen level setbacks. No complaints here.
#33 Posted by super600 (30954 posts) -

I noticed my level percentage increasing by a bit more then usually per day in the last week or two.

#34 Posted by anihimz (14242 posts) -
Nooooooooo don't fix this I love being level 41
#35 Posted by JodyR (16412 posts) -
Thanks super, I'll have them investigate the issue. In the meantime, enjoy the level BOOSTS!
#36 Posted by Loegi (1692 posts) -
Last I checked I was level 37, now I'm 43? That's a pretty big jump. I miss my missed titles sort of.

Not everyone will be it seems. While this account, the one I use 95% of the time, didn't get a boost. My alt. which I've hardly used in the past month, did. Jumped from 38 to 40.

I had to wonder why some accounts have larger Level jumps than others, even for high-level accounts.

Your level is too high already even the glitch didn't want to boost your level :P

Anyway, I did get level boost from lvl 62 10% to 63 72%

It's because it's easier to level up in the lower level accounts.

Hadn't noticed until today that I was at 81 percent. Don't really remember the previous percentage but Friday ( I think) I was at 71 or something. Seems to be happening to random people. Oh wells.

i recall jumping from 38 to 41 in a matter of days (not sure if it was instantaneous since i wasn't paying attention). i don't have any problem with that ;)
#50 Posted by JodyR (16412 posts) -

After further research we think the level bump has to do with the boost we gave you all a while back. The reason for this, some users didnt see the bump until taking certain actions on the site.

For an example: check your fuse profiles and see the data/times you noticed the level change. There's s status update when you turn another level. So far the people we looked up had the level boost around the week we granted people their level boost for the profile level downtime.

If you have any new reports about this, go ahead and let us know. Thanks!
