Q on 6-Month, 12-Month Windows

Hey all. I have been trying to work something out and I'm just not understanding it, so I though I'd ask here.

 

Since 6-, 12- and 24-month windows are calculated, is one's JSS calculated on the most *recent* 6 months only if the freelancer hasn't been on UP a whole year yet?

 

So in other words, if I took my first contract in October and May rolls around, will my October contracts fall out of the window, with no 12- or 24-month calculations available yet (obviously) to compare it to and select the higher score?

 

Thanks. I am embarrassed to ask this question, but math and math/time/sequential concepts have never been my jam. It is a true cross for me to bear. :D

 Let's make this simple ;)

 

If you have been here 8 months, you have a 6 month window which is the window from 6 months ago today to today, AND a 12 month window, which includes (!!) your 6 month window plus the other two months. No 24 months window

 

If you have been here 18 months, you have the 6 month window, the 12 month window, which includes (!!) your 6 month window plus a 24 month window which includes (!!) your 6 month window and your 12 month window.

People often forget that the 12 month window encompasses the 6 month window in its calculation for some reason.

Thank you, Petra! This makes sense.
