    Please don't announce any award

    This Forum thread is specially for Mr Hafeez to request him not to announce any more award of Techulator until my contributions are all checked. This has been enough time and my Product reviews aren't check so long. I made a complaint in the Forum section a few days back but I guess no one tool an action on it. Not even the editors editors ignored it. It make me feels that no one like to help others here not even the editors. If they would have requested Mr Tony John to check my reviews, then I might not loosed she awards. So this is not as complaint, just as a friendly hand from my side.

    Please note that the product section has been reviewed from time to time. I have observed that the section has been reviewed after your latest request for reviewing the same. I can't exactly share the exact reason for why your contribution to the section have not been reviewed.
    Let me bring it to the attention of the team and let us see what they can do for it.
    Also note that editors have been given duties with regard to particular sections and they cannot have a say in the sections that they do not have access to. So, instead of blaming it on editors, I would request you to communicate with webmasters if you have any concern.

    Thanks for your patience so far and would look forward to the same.

    I have a doubt here and am asking it just to know about it. As far as what I know and the awards in techulator, does any of the awards has a connection with product reviews?

    Just curious about it, I just know about Ask experts, Discussion forums, Resource section and all the awards are based on this sections.

    Product reviews section needs special access I guess and only given to some people. I don't if this crct to post a question inside a question.

    Please clear my doubts and also if necessary I will create other thread for this. Let me know

    The awards you have been talking about are the super contributor awards for each section. What the member has been asking about are the Member of the week and Member of the Month awards. Those two are based on the best performance during that particular week, or month. So it goes without saying that all your (approved) points from all of your contributions are taken into account while arriving at the winner of the award.

    Aman, note that in this thread of yours an editor did reply and you have even acknowledged it in a response there. So it is incorrect to say that it was ignored. Secondly, as you are aware & as has been mentioned, there are very limited number of editors on the team and it is tough for an editor to manage multiple sections. Thirdly, awards cannot be held back on the ground of non-review of posts. The Webmasters cannot indefinitely delay announcements of awards.

    It is understandable that you are frustrated at not having your posts in the products section reviewed quickly. However, note that awards are not solely based on points alone. Quality content is more important.

    And yes - editors are very much helping out members. We appreciate everyone's contributions and do take time out to encourage and guide, not to mention bring issues raised in the forum to the attention of the Webmasters as was done in your case. It is just possible that the Webmasters may not get time to deal with an issue right away due to more urgent tasks.

    Regards,
    Vandana

    So Member of the week and Member of the month awards also takes product reviews into account?

  • #23388
    Yes Pranay, contributions across all sections are taken into account when considering eligible members for the Member of the Week and Member of the Month awards. The points a member gets for the contributions are tallied. Then quality is checked too and accordingly the winners are announced.

    Vandana

    @Pranay, please note that it is not only the points that are considered for arriving at the winning member for deciding the Member of the Week and Member of the Month awards. The points of the highly placed members are first taken into account to decide on a list of possible winners and then based on the quality of contribution in each section, the winner is declared. Thus the decision remains to be both quantitative and qualitative.

    So, when coming to a member of the week and month award, only selected persons can get that. Like only a few of them have access to product reviews and only those are eligible for this two awards, because others can't write there and this awards need constant contribution from all sections, so those two awards are only for them ?

  • #23398
    Not necessarily. There are members who have no access to product section, but can get the MOW and MOM awards. I, for one have won a number of such awards in spite of not having access to the section. It was only recently that I requested access for the section and got it though I am not much active on the section.

    The major concern by the member here is he has a lot of contribution from the section, but his posts are not reviewed. He has been thinking that he has lost out of the awards because of his content not being reviewed.

    Okay, thanks for clearing my doubts. Ya because of that I though whether that section has played major role in that awards one.

    Thanks for clearing my doubts

    I find that the harder I work, the more luck I seem to have.

    @Aman , as I pointed out to you in my earlier response to your thread, all the editors are NOT entrusted with the responsibility of all the sections. We have been assigned to specific sections, and there remains to be a limit to what we can do. Even in case of your previous thread on this issue, I had brought this query to the attention of the team, and webmasters as Vandana mentioned in her above response. This time too, it has again been referred to the team. Does it not speak of the fact that your thread, and requests have not been ignored? In fact, Product section not being managed by the regular editors, and the maximum they can help out is by letting the webmasters know about the complaints raised by members in connection with the section.
    Now that it has been done, I do not think there is any need to blame it on the editors. Please wait for a couple of days and hopefully webmasters may come up with an explanation.
    Till then, please refrain from blaming it on the editors.

    Timmappa kamat, I am not blaming the editors for this. I just meant so that the editors can make this thing forwarded to the Webmaster and can also update me with his reply.

    I suggest no more discussions & responses on this issue please. Let's just wait for the Webmasters to respond. Since it is the Christmas season, though, there may be some delay in their response.
    Regards,
    Vandana

  • #23404
    That's what I and Vandana have been stating throughout this thread. Your complaint, or request as you would prefer to call it has been brought to the attention of the webmasters already. All we, and you can do now is to wait for the response from them.

  • #23414
    Aman, we understand your frustration at the long delays in reviewing your posts & know how eager not just you, but other members too, are to receive good payouts. The update is that we are having some intense internal discussions on dealing with the product review submissions. We hope some positive result comes of it.
    Regards,
    Vandana

    We have added more editors to the products section. Hopefully, we will clear all the backlog in next few days.
