When the second Tuesday is near the beginning of the month (usually before 15th) the awards are posted on the third Tuesday of the following month.

Hi Mia, 7 days ago (when you asked and received the answer) awards were not yet due to being assigned that is why this topic was marked as solved. Since awards have not yet been assigned I remove mar as solved. I asked when they'll be assigned and as soon as I get a reply I'll let you know.

Scott, is there a technical problem or why haven't the Monthly Awards for November been issued? If there is, please try to get it corrected asap so that the awards for December and the Yearly Awards for 2018 will be issued at a proper time. This is the so called golden hour for Pixoto to show that the difficult last year is behind and a new, precise way of working will take place.

One would think that issuing of awards would be an automated feature on a site that is built on Daily, Weekly, Monthly and Yearly awards. Apparently it though isn't. It seems that every once in a while it needs to be manually executed. The irregular and delayed issuing is really unfair to the members. While waiting for the awards the score of them changes and generally in a negative direction. From a transparency point of view the automatic issuing of awards on certain given days is crucial. Any staff interference puts the whole process in an unreliable light.

Now it's January 2019 and the Monthly Awards for November 2018 haven't still been issued. Scott, what is the problem?

Jasenka - any news regarding Monthly Awards for November? According to this thread you asked about the delay 16 days ago. Have you really not received any answer? I can't help wondering if there still are basic problems on the site... Soon Monthly Awards for December are due and what then? We all know what comes after that: The Yearly Awards for 2018. Can we hope for a normal schedule this time around?

Hi Jasenka,  since this is the second Tuesday of January, how about finishing last years results, namely Monthly November and December.  Then put out the badges for 2018 without this prolonged annoyance of a so called schedule.  If yearly points don't count then save your energy and finish last year within the next week or 2.

Just a thought.

I could have sworn I saw an announcement that November 2018 awards were to be announced TODAY. That was like last a Friday maybe. I can’t find it now. Did anyone else see that or am I hallucinating remembering that I read that?

Sorry everyone. We are still getting caught up from the holidays. I'll make sure they get sent out on Monday.

Unfortunately, unlike daily and weekly wards, monthly awards is a manual process. We can look to get it automated within the next few months as we roll out new features.

Thank you Scott! Could you at the same time start preparing for issuing the Monthly Awards for December? It's time for them also. Yearly Awards are also around the corner. Please try and wrap year 2018 together as soon as possible. We members are all so tired of waiting for something all the time.

Why don't you just wrap up 2018 this month after you finish with December's Results..  Why have us wait until March.

Hi Dave, we have some significant changes coming out in February and want to make sure the overall system is stable before releasing awards. Also, I want to give everyone an opportunity to express their opinion on how badges are awarded prior to releasing them.

You should not change last year's rules for awards or badges.  Changing the rules on how the badges are given out can be and should be done if needed this year for 2019.  As far as last year's badges are concerned run last year's program for badges and be done with the it. 

Regards

I agree with Dave. 2018 should be done with the old rules.

Scott! Are you going to inform us about the significant changes you're talking about here on Community site before they are implemented?

Hi Mia, yes, I'll notify the changes as they get rolled out.  Most likely we will have a new community site as well.  This one is pretty dated.

Ok, thank you for the information. Come to think of it... if we will have a new Community site, what happens with all the info that is on the old one? I mean, it's sometimes a good database for searching for answers.
