Immersion upvotes question
For the tier increase, only the first votes help, right? For longer sentences the number is higher?
I'm assuming lower-tier votes do not count at all, right? Except for lingots? I'm curious because in Tier 2, I am getting many more Immersion lingots than tier points.
Thanks for the clarification.
Only votes from users at your tier or higher count. So if you're at tier 2, votes from tier 1 users won't affect your progress, but votes from everyone else will.
The number of votes per sentence that count towards your progress depends on the length of the sentence: one vote for every five words in the sentence. So if you translate a 5-word sentence, only one vote counts towards your tier progress. For a 10-word sentence, two votes count. For a 15-word sentence, three votes count.
It doesn't say if there's a maximum number of votes counted (some sentences are very long). It also doesn't say what happens if the sentence is less than five words.
Thanks -- I understood all of that already. It does not address my question, but I hope it reduces the number of people who post explanations of what I knew. Lingot and vote for that.
Depending on the length of a sentence, only so many upvotes can count towards your next level. I just want someone at DL who knows the algorithm to confirm that if a Tier 2 translates a sentence, and that sentence can earn a maximum of two votes towards achieving Tier 3, that Tier 1 votes won't prevent any Tier 2-4 votes from counting.
I hope my question is much clearer now. If not, imagine Tier 2 translates a 5-word sentence, as in your example. One vote can help him. The first reader is a Tier 1 who votes up. That's nice -- I assume a lingot there. But now along comes a Tier 3 upvote of same sentence. Does the first-in-time Tier 1 vote now block the Tier 3 from helping the Tier 2 advance? That is the very long way of rephrasing my question.
OK, I understand your question now. It was not clear in your original post. You can get an unlimited number of upvotes per sentence translated. There is a limit on the ones that count towards your advancement. Those are counted separately from the general votes.
So if a tier 2 translator translates a 5-word sentence, only the first vote that affects his/her progress is counted for tier advancement. So thirty tier 1 people could upvote it and then if a tier 3 person upvoted it, that 31st vote would be the only one that counted. On the other hand, if three tier 2 people upvote it, only the first one of those votes counts.
Thanks. I assumed you hadn't understood the question as I first wrote it, and I am glad the question was much clearer the second time around.
I hope, of course, that your understanding of the process is correct. That is certainly what I hope is the way it works. Have you seen the actual algorithm or program in question? Or was it explained in another thread?
PS: fantastic streak! Good luck with that!
