Has the influence score disappeared?
Of all the things they could have disabled (i.e. redundant badges), why choose the influence score? I was just about to contact PM experts to partake in a study/survey, and my criteria for "experts" included a high influence score.

Agree. Although the rating factors were (to my knowledge) never published, it was a useful indicator.

Hi John. The algorithm always had me perplexed. Members with little activity mainating high scores; others we a lot of activity not being able to break the ceiling.
Dear Sante
This topic has already given some controversy

Dear Sante,

The Influence score has disappeared from my profile page.

I do not know if it is connected but I did get and email from PMI at 06:33 am IST titled "Share your good influence".

Maybe it is only a temporary measure to stop the spread of the Coronavirus :-)

Dear Daire
The disappearance of influence was already announced a month ago

This gesture from ProjectManagement.com gave some controversy

Despite this, they took the initiative forward :-)

Hi Daire, it's permanent I'm afraid, unless they wake up and realize it was one of the attractions for member engagement, love it or hate it. You don't build gamification into websites, increase engagement, only to pull key attractions in that gamification process from under members' feet.

I did know it was happening at the end of March (as per the LONG thread here: https://www.projectmanagement.com/blog-pos...fluence-Score), but thought that'd be tomorrow :-(

I was hoping to take a screenshot of my #2 position...

Maybe one of our helpful Community Engagement Specialists could do me a favor and find a way to do that for me :-) (hint, hint, Laura & Kimberly).

Hi Kiron, kind of like taking screenshots of old badges that still appear in the badge list. Does taking a screenshot of the number two position really do anything for you, given that you should have been number 1 for over a year given your engagement with the community?
Yes, I see it disappeared.

It was a good way to understand the profile of the people you interact with.
I hope they'll bring it back, maybe with a different way to calculate it

@Fabio, I hope they bring it back too. But since none of the admins here have high influence scores, don't hold your breath.
I was not aware of this measure being taken. I do not agree. Despite some people misused it by posting irrelevant questions or by adding "thanks for sharing" to every possible post, those were just a few individuals.

Influence score was a good way to identify people with the highest influence within the projectmanagement.com community, nothing wrong with that.

Dear Eduardo,

I agree it is a good metric to see who has the greatest influence in the project management community.

For me I found it hard to move the dial on my own popularity which was somewhere around the mid table :-)

I wonder what alternative PMI will propose in its place. Maybe they will increase the diversity of badges available only making some badges for the more popular folks amongst us :-)
