Which contributor are you?

A new feature was just released on user profiles: the contribution score. The score rewards participations to the Numista catalogue, Numisdoc and outings suggestions. For instance, you earn 10 points for each new coin added to the catalog. A status is granted to good contributors based on their score:
copper:100+ points
bronze:300+ points
silver:1000+ points
gold:3000+ points
platinum:10,000+ points
diamond:30,000+ points

See the score rules and the 100 most outstanding contributors!

Edit on September 19th: The initial goal of the update was to be able to see the amount of contributions of the members who built the catalog and to create a game-like aspect and some emulation. However the score was not fully representative of the contribution of all members to Numista and the competition aspect received mixed reactions. So I've decided to take the comments into account and to remove the score and the ranking. Only the numbers of contributions to the catalogue are now shown on users profile.

I like that idea. A kind of motivation to contribute to the website and all Numista community. And I'm silver ;)
Good one Xavier.

Btw, in a user's profile, if you hover on "See more" next to the "Contribution score" text, it will display exactly what that user contributed ! Good for those of us not in the top 100. :)

I just added some mintage figures onto a few 2015 coins UK, I was wondering if you get a little score for that too? And if the score is added AFTER they have been approved by whoever approves them :) xx

For every page on which you have added mintage figures you get 1 point after verification. Thank you for your work for Numista, it is very much appreciated! :)

You know, I understand that this is Xavier's site and I really appreciate being able to express an opinion on something like this. It is a great community that Xavier has created and it is always open to diverse ideas.

I hope, therefore, that me being honest about this feature will not be taken badly. This is just my opinion, based on what I have read about it.

Because Numista is a very comprehensive and valuable resource, most information relating to coins is already here. How could a fairly new user, such as myself, ever hope to aspire to Platinum or Diamond status? What 7000 coins are missing from the catalogue so that I can catch up?

Those who made the massive contribution that was involved in populating Numista for the rest of us to use are fully deserving of any accolade they might desire. Their names should be up on the site in lights, along with metrics of exactly how much hard work they did. In that sense, this is fantastic. However, I think it is a mistake to make this into a points-scoring competition.

It cheapens Numista and it makes me less interested in contributing. I want to contribute because I love coins and coin catalogues and think Numista is one of the best things on the Internet. Giving me points and making me fight for scraps to gain some kind of "promotion" that is (you know it!) going to affect credibility on this site sooner or later? No thank you!

I think it is a really bad idea to incentivise hasty contributions or updates to the Numista catalogue. This is not a game, and it isn't a competition. All you have done is created a new breed of Numista 1-percenters and, frankly, I'm rather disappointed.

I disagree with your opinion. I think new rating system does not create any race and competition between us. At the end of the day all the information is verified anyway and you can't just add whatever you want to. There is no prize or handy-cup for being first, second or in top 50. It's rather kind of "reward" for all the people who contribute to the site. Everybody can contribute if he/she wishes to. If you don't want to contribute it's your will, there is no penalties against you neither. I'm on many websites that reflect my interest (coins, books, films, history) and there is some of reward point system on each of them that motivate (or not) you to contribute in many ways. I'm not active participator on all of them, even on Numista I add some information from time to time when I notice that something is missing or incorrect. I think it's a good idea and shouldn't create any unhealthy rivalry between us as it would only lead to mess and incorrect information about our collection and website - and this is the last thing we want to see here, am I right?
That's my opinion :)

It is a very well communicated and well thought-out opinion too, vratislaviensis79. :-)

There should be no competition. The maintenance of Numista, and the support of the efforts of those who contribute high-quality information, should be the collective desire of all of us.

If I added new tokens to Numista it would be not considered as a contribution since they are not coins but tokens only?

It would still be considered as a contribution and you will receive as many points as when you would add or edit a coin.

I half agree with ANDREWDOTCOSA in saying that us small people will never get to the top of the list, however for me it is an achievement to get even a few points which will make me very happy anyway :) I do it because it makes me really happy and it's my passion. But never gonna get high, just personal goals :)

​Exactly. It's a passion, hobby. These points are just to make it a bit more interesting, funny and make us happier :) Most of us including myself will never get to the top of the list but it never should be our goal...
Remember: It's not about collecting reward points... it's about collecting coins!

My dear Xavier,

It's a really nice idea and a great way to acknowledge the efforts which have gone into making what is, in my opinion, the best coin related database on the web. It's motivated me to begin contributing again after being unable to do so because of the website page load problems which as you are fully aware I've had for almost two years. As these are now largely manageable (thank your for your repeated assistance and advice) and we have an active and first rate referee for my area of interest I'd like to take some steps to improve the UK section, with Mark's consent and oversight of course.

Sadly, what should be a fun challenge is already being used as a tool to denigrate and belittle others whose contributions may be in areas not reflected in the table. Those members providing quite literally dozens of coin identifications which are then hopefully added to the catalog are a good example. They are making great contributions by adding obscure coins to the catalog which might not even exist in other similar catalogs. To name a few would do an injustice to those I would inevitably forget but we all know who they are and appreciate their magnificent efforts. Or what about those, such as myself, who have a great many contacts in the wider numismatic field going back many (too many!) decades and have referred a lot of new members to join the site?

I've been referred to publically by one of your Admin Team as a "lazy asshole" because my own contributions don't match his or her idea of what they should be. I really have no intention of justifying my level of activity to an ill mannered child and don't think it is the place of anyone, Admin Team or otherwise, to be demanding a certain level of "contributions" as the price of membership. This can be confirmed by many other members who saw the messages prior to deletion. This same member of your team has been repeating many similar unfounded and downright nasty slanders against other members, including your senior moderator, whose moderating role and activities in resolving swap conflicts again do not show up in the table but are of immense value in keeping the site free from conflict and scammers. It's all rather distasteful and unseemly and I think everyone, moderators and members alike, deserves better.

I'm sure that this was not your intention for what should be a charming and friendly competitive feature and the aberrations of this one individual are simply an unintended consequence. For the sake of continuing civility and to put a timely stop to this type of abuse could you please take a moment to affirm that referring to lower ranked members as "lazy assholes" does not reflect the values of yourself personally or of Numista. Perhaps a discreet word with this individual about the way he / she is badly reflecting on your great website might suffice although it might take the removal from the Team Roster to curb the malicious arrogance which has been on display since the day of appointment.

To be perfectly frank, I have much to contribute towards the variations and identification of UK coins and can provide better images for many from an extensive personal collection. I hope it doesn't sound boastful but with over 50 years experience in collecting the coins of Great Britain I could help Mark to add all major die variations back to the 1700's along with identification markers rather like the magnificent job that Joseph has done on the Indian section. However I have to say that I really don't feel the incentive to put in that amount of hard work only to find it all deleted on the whim of a spiteful child.

I guess what I'm asking for I some kind of reassurance that you are aware of this issue and will be willing to take such measures as are needed for the benefit of the site and it's members.

While we have had moments of disagreement in the past I hope you will accept that any criticisms were given for the best motives and now that you are returned to us and back at the helm I'd like us to have a reset at the personal level. I continue to have the utmost respect for your abilities and your creation whatever you decide.

In that light, I have a few suggestions for non-technical improvements which I'd like you to consider and a few innovative contributions to make should you wish. I will send you a private message regarding these ideas later once my demon child is asleep so please keep an eye on your inbox as I believe you will approve of them.

Warmest regards,

Phil "Lazy Asshole" Nightingale

Hello Xavier, congratulations on this idea, I like it very much .... but (...why always have to be a but??...)

1) I agree this is not a race, and is a good way to let people know they effort is noticed.
2) I know there is not a chance for most of us (who dedicate some time to coins and to Numista, but also need to live out this stuff), to catch up Kenny (congratulations to him for his 1st position, it is very well deserved, and also congrats to all showing in - and out of - Top 100). I takes a dedication and effort that is out of reach for 99% of the members.
3) We all want some competition, it adds some spice to our hobby, and for sure we all would like to see our names on highlights. We all like to see for a moment as the only owner of a coin, or have completed a theme, like year, country, century, etc. Tell me if there is only one of us who is not proud to that show reached certain amount of coins, or got the newest one, or anything that makes them break a record...

Said that, I suggest to add (if possible, of course, as program could be more complicated) a side race/competition/quest or however you want to call it. It could be a monthly rank or so, cause maybe someone get some free time and decide to work hard to improve Numista and earn several points. They will be rewarded with a "15 minutes of fame", and for sure Numista will be benefited with this extra effort.

I don't mean to have prices for this, only to reach high places on something will be enough, being total points, or separate themes, like "most coins added", most years included", "more descriptions edited", etc., you can choose what could be the targets.

Only detail I'm worried about is that referees would have their work increased, and if they need to deny addings/modifications some problems could happen with the people who sent the requests. We (I mean you) will see how this can be processed.

Hmmm... Now I think there could be also a cathegory for referees; something about verifications or editings... please, think of that.

In resume, I like the idea, but as anything new, could be improved. WTG Xavier and Numista!!!

Its a very nice idea. I just put my own opinion, so please, be polite .

1. I think better should be without points from gross to less and so much metals and stones. probably just 2 or three grades. And someone once should discovered on his page " gold" , and after a few years - " diamond"

People`s brains are built so that when they see number 1, number 2, number 3 etc, they start to imagine competition ( even if they don't speak about it loudly ) . Its subconscious. So, better if we will not know how much coins had we ( or our fatty neighbor, or uncle Bob from Newglory ) added, and how much years. Just once someone will be awarded by " gold" or " diamond". I think its more fair.

2. All main coins are already added years ago on both English and French sides. And most of common coins, like Swiss, Belgium, Honduras, Russia, Germany etc with plenty sub-KM#-s and thousand years in each KM and sub-KM# has been already added. From this side, , according to Numista contribution score rules, newest members never will be on same rights as senior ones. Because all Belgium coins with more thank 1oo years with both french and Flemish types already added. It means that new member never received diamond medal. How You imagine, - from where new member can grow 30K points on current Numista version? its impossible. Please think about it. If you decided to make colors, you must also realize that even if someone will have a great wish to fight for " diamond" contributor status, he/she never will have this chance. Only if site will crush and all coins would be have to add again.

resuming all these points, I just want to say, that awards are good but:

1. better if member will be stimulated , but will not know an exact per-cent-age of his/her lepta in numista`s common work .
2. better if all members will have a same chance to become " palladium", or " Ainstainium "  :)

Yours,
David

I certainly welcome the recognition and encouragement of contributors.
In a collaborative site, which is built by members this is a long awaited feature, thank you Xavier for implementing it.

I also trust that it can be finetuned and improved later based on Phil's and others' suggestion to include swap arrangements or supporting other members with coin identification and other things, but it is certainly a good start.

I disagree with those who think it is unfair for newer members and that there is no chance to get to the top100. Though the catalog is improving every day, there is hell a lot of areas, which need further improvement.
There are incomplete coin pages, and we have less than 40% completeness of the catalog. Just ancient Rome alone could accomodate around 40,000 more coin types, German States close to that, new commemoratives are issued every day, etc. ... it is certainly more difficult than adding a new year to the euro cent, but the possibilities are there.

Imre, I think you are viewing this too much as a competition (not that I blame you, you're in eleventh place so I'm sure it would be great to making it into the top ten!).

This new feature is just a cute idea, and nothing more than that. If it motivates you to work harder, I'll say great. If you're like me, and it doesn't, also great! The real problem are the members who try to put down other members based on the number of points they have!

The initial goal of the update was to be able to see the amount of contributions of the members who built the catalog and to create a game-like aspect and some emulation.
However the score was not fully representative of the contribution of all members to Numista and the competition aspect received mixed reactions. So I've decided to take the comments into account and to remove the score and the ranking. Only the numbers of contributions to the catalogue are now shown on users profile.

Xavier, very good that you removed ranking - why are you some people so mad about that "competition" aspect??? It doesn't make sense to me... This is great website, catalogue, community. It gives you great tool to keep tracking your collection, exchanging coins, looking for information... It's not Olympic game! I say it again - it's about collecting coins, not points...
Not so sure about deleting color coded circle however... I think it was nice :) Anyway, good that you left information.

I think the best way of acknowledging people's contributions would be to allow others voting on any action one takes. For example, Phil's post above would get a +1 from me. His Numista "score" becomes 1. 9 more people +1 (or Like) Phil's post and his score becomes 10. It does not need to be a lengthy and elaborate post. If someone identifies a coin she/he would not get an automatic +1 but rather the person who posted the question would +1 the response, and others can do it too. If I really like a swap with someone I may +1 it too. Not every 5-star swaps would warrant a +1. Also it should be possible to +1 a Numisdocs author. For coin additions, changes, etc. catalog admins may decide how many point a submitter gets. For example, Phil adds a rare coin that is not in the catalog yet with very detailed specs, description and perfect pictures. Admin may decide to give Phil a +10 for that so his score is 20 now. In the example that David brought up he would give no points to the submitter of that change request. I understand it is an additional work for admins to think how many points each addition/change request deserves so the functionality needs to be optimized for them.

Lots of things could be +1'd (liked) by other members but members should be able to -1 (dislike) things as well, like some useless or offensive forum posts, for example. Needless to say one user can +1 or -1 a particular item only once.

I've seen similar features on many forums, boards, consumer sites, etc.

​I purely view it as recognition for people who have done the work for this website. period.

... and as you know I have stopped contributing quite a while ago, because I have found the management disastrously incompetent, and some teammembers unethical.

Unfortunately, the incompetence has been clearly demonstrated again: Xavier has removed the recognition list after some days, sending us all the clear message: "I don't care what you do, this is my website, losers!"

For once my dear Imre I'd have to slightly disagree with you.

I really liked the idea as it was originally proposed and thought that a good start had been made and it was something which could be expanded as time permits later.

Unfortunately it was being abused by the same type of unethical team member you just referenced and I think that removing the listings was a good move to prevent them from belittling the contributions of others.

For my part I was happy to see your own vast contributions being recognized by a place near the top and I miss our many interesting conversations very much since you have become inactive. I have a real sense that things are slowly improving so I hope you will keep an open mind and remain with us, there are not too many members with your knowledge and enthusiasm. Nobody has been more critical of the long abandonment than me but that's water under the bridge now. As one of our smarter members recently remarked, most coin websites are hopelessly American centred so where else could I have learned so much about Hungary, it's coins, culture and alcoholic delights?

It's very sad that what could have been such a fun feature was spoiled by simple pettiness but perhaps once some mechanism is worked out to recognize a wider range of contributions, as proposed by our friend Smoked Caramel above, it might be restored.

The goal of the new feature is indeed to bring some recognition.
The score and ranking received mixed reactions. While some members like you think it's a good idea, some other good contributors were totally against the idea of a competition. Since I care about how new features are perceived by members, I prefer to first deliver a partial version of it.
There is still more recognition than before, since everyone can now seen how much you contributed to Numista. Only the competition and the inherent drawbacks (members who request many useless modifications just to get a higher rank) have been removed, at least until we can think of a better way of doing it.

Why all this new things and not remove all the reported errors??
Your time you can give only once and the errors are against this site.

Xavier,

A suggestion : why don't you take the amount of Swaps in this contribution?
Every body who has very good/better/best (1-2-3-4-5-stars) swaps is a contributor too (or am I wrong?). They use this site for where it has been built too!
In mine opinium it is not only making/maintain a good catalog, but also using this catalog and swaps is (one of) the reason why this catalog has been build.

With regards.

I liked the copper, bronze, silver, gold, platinum and diamond classification. Can we get it back? Not the ranking, but just a medal on profile?

el182592,

honestly I cannot see, why the quantity of swaps should be awarded.

Contributions to the catalog ought to be the only relevant evaluation factor, since they enrich the whole coin collecting community (members of Numista).

I use Numista for its catalog and little else (from time to time I add some of my documentations as well). I also have some nice discussions with other members about variants and some times help them to document THEIR findings.

Swapping I mostly do with my "old" excel file, where I have all the information, which simply isn't foreseen in the numista list, so for me that option is of NO use.
