Missing Point Again- My Stupid Blunder

040320146583

Yes, it happened again today.

I had just published a blog post at 2.15pm (Malaysia time) but I wasn’t given 50 points immediately.

Honestly, it was my blunder because I knew that I had to publish my new post AFTER 3pm local time which is 1am USA time.

Let me explain this problem.

Remember that in the past I had send constant messages to Sir @Sheridan about my missing points? In a week, I could experienced 3 times of filling up the missing point forms that one of our fellow blogger also noticed it.

It was Blogjob server problem. I finally realized the problem that had occurred was due to the time zone.

Yes, when the time zone hits at 12am, I would experience missing points almost 80%. If I am not wrong, it is the time slot that changes and maybe the internet line wasn’t quick enough to excess the points into my account.

After several times of sending messages to Sir Sheridan 3 times in a week of the same problems, I finally decided to test out at different time slot.

I managed to “catch” the most suitable time slot which had reduced the frequency of Missing Points occurrence.

  1. Malaysia time before 12pm = USA 10am 
  2. Malaysia time after 3pm = USA 1am

As long I do not publish any post at 2pm Malaysia time ( USA = 12am ) I am SAFE .

However, the last few days I had been too busy with gardening and household chores that I got panicked when I couldn’t reach my daily goal 150 points.

In order to hit my goal for the day, I quickly posted 3 blog posts without looking at the time slot.

Which is the reason why I had to admit that it was my mistake, a stupid blunder that I could had avoided if I had looked at the time before I hit the Publish button.

Sorry again Sir Sheridan, I had to trouble you again to look into my account for the missing points.

It is fortunate that most writers do not experience missing points at any time when publishing their posts.

I guess I belong to one of those unlucky writers, at the wrong time and the wrong place.

  1. I was having a problem when posting near midnight and I am in the U.S. But I also noticed that if I forget to click the ubcategorized button at the right I am more likely to have a problem. Hope you do good from now on

  2. I had that happen twice. Now I just remove the content and post again. then I update the other post, silly I know but I think the admin would be irritated if disturbed all the time
