Wiki Ninja belt status - Data discrepancy


  • The below blog post from Ronen shows the current belt status of all WIKI ninjas

    My status is listed like below

    Prashanth Jayaram
    Achievements for current belt:
    Has New Wiki Contributor Bronze achievement medal
    Has New Wiki Editor Bronze achievement medal
    Has New Wiki Commentator Bronze achievement medal
    Has 1 Top Contributor win
    Progress towards next belt:
    Has Wiki Editor II Silver achievement medal
    Needs 1 more Top Contributor win

    In that, I can see that "Needs 1 more Top contributor win" in the above-listed points.

    But in this recent blog post by Pete Laker(Weekly Top contributor awards),It's been mentioned that have won 3 previous Top contributor awards.

    Please check Most Revised Article Winner section

    Prashanth Jayaram
    Prashanth Jayaram has won 3 previous Top Contributor Awards:

    I think there is a data discrepancy. Can someone please check and update?

  • It is not the total number of Top Contributor Awards, but the number received since the last belt was achieved. For example, many belts have this requirement:

    Benchmark - You placed in the Top Weekly Contributors 1 time after receiving the previous belt.

    Does this explain your situation? Check the requirements for the belts here:

  • And keep in mind the Ninja belt calculation is a view on a certain point in time. It's not updated automatically.

    So if the guru competition is updated, you will get new/different result for the next belt calculation.

    Due to the limited (wo)man-power we have in the Wiki Council, the belt calculations are only run now and then.

    This is not automated (yet)... (this is all run after-hours for free, no budget, volunteers...)
