Proposal: Genealogy & Family History
I went to the above proposal at Area 51 and saw 45% in the Commitment box. Then I clicked on "more info" to expand the box and I was surprised by what I saw:
The Commitment score is supposed to be the minimum of the the three scores below, which are shown as 74%, 46% and 68%. So shouldn't the Commitment score then be 46%? Why isn't it?
This is not a doctored up picture. I have the entire picture of my Windows Phone with more of the Area 51 page and that box in it if you want to see it.
I do have to say that about an hour later, when I decided to ask this question here on Meta Stack Overflow, I checked back at the Genealogy and Family History Q&A proposal site and the calculation was no longer in error and the total Commitment was showing as 46%.
So obviously, the system corrected itself after some time.
But that still leads me wondering why and how this could happen in the first place, since you would think that calculation (an all important one at Area 51), should be so simple to instantly update whenever one of the 3 numbers that define it changes.
So this question was closed after a few days. Is this not an important problem? I don't think it's a cache thing any more because now it appears to be sticky and has been there for a while and this time isn't going away. See the current screen shot:
It's been like this now for 19 hours! So after 19 hours, would it still be a cache problem? We've had 3 new Committers since the 200+ Rep person. Shouldn't those have refreshed the cache?
This definitely needs to be fixed!
Update: Now for something again a little different, I just saw this:
Is 56% equal to 57/100? Wow!
