Census Ratings: WA Endorsements (bug?)

Postby Sierra Lyricalia » Mon Jul 13, 2020 7:42 am

Is there a delay in census measurements? This nation hasn't been a WA member in ~3 days, but I have a new notice that it's in the top 10% for endorsements.

9 hours ago: Sierra Lyricalia was ranked in the Top 10% of the world for Most World Assembly Endorsements.
2 days 11 hours ago: Sierra Lyricalia resigned from the World Assembly.

My understanding is that ties in census ratings are given to whoever has the highest population in the tie. I’d imagine that there’s a huge tie for 0 endorsements, and given your rather high population, it awarded you the badge - even over actual member-nations who have 0 endorsements.

You are in the top 10%. As can be seen here, the last nation with 1 endorsement is ranked 19492, while there are currently 206355 nations. So anyone ranked between 19493 and 20635 (which includes a mix of non-WA members and WA members with zero endorsements, in I don't know what order) will be in the top 10% without having any endorsements.

FWIW, I think it's weird too.

Edit: ninja'd.

Not population but an internal dBid number.

It's the same number as your card number.

The tao that can be told is not the eternal Tao. The name that can be named is not the eternal Name. The unnamable is the eternally real. Naming is the origin of all particular things. Free from desire, you realize the mystery. Caught in desire, you see only the manifestations. Yet mystery and manifestations arise from the same source. This source is called darkness.

I haven't been in the WA in over a decade, but I'm still in the top 10%.

DBID #2, so I'm pretty much a lock as long as WA members are less than 10% of nations.
