I was about to say the same thing, but you beat me to it. I've been sitting on 12 weeks for almost 2 weeks now, and I'd really like to get the 13th week and top rated status already! Anybody know what's going on? I'm getting plenty of work without it, but I'd really like that endorsement!
Did you have some "not eligible weeks" before reaching a JSS of over 90% again? In that casebthose have to fall out of the back end of the 16 week window before it increases, because while they are still in the middle of the window, a good week falls out every week as much as a good week is added. This would mean at least one of the presumably 4 non-eligible weeks must fall out of the 16 week window before it increases again.
That's all confusing to me. If last week my stats read 12 of 16 weeks eligible, then this week should read 13 of 16 weeks eligible, provided my score hasn't dropped below 90% since last week. At some point, I had a few days of 87%, I believe due to an inactive contract because my client wanted to table the job for a while to work on some other stuff. (His prerogative, but my loss, it seems!) Anyway, I THINK thatwas before the 13 week count started. Not sure.
I have same issue, for last 4, 5 weeks Eligible Weeks is struck on 12 although my JSS is above 90%. Currently my JSS is ranging between 94 to 98 percent for last many weeks but Eligible weeks struck on 12th week. Please check and hopefully if fixed, I should be awarded with Top Rated badge.
Eligible weeks are ones where you either had Rising Talent status or a Job Success Score above or equal to 90%. In order for the count to increase, you must be eligible this week, but not have been eligible 17 weeks ago (Eligible Weeks count would go up by one). To learn more about this, check out this Help Article. Thank you.
Hi Attiq and Melanie,
Eligible weeks' count is still updated every Saturday. Is it possible that the weeks in which you had a Job Success Score below 90% haven't started to fall off the calculation window? For example, if you had a Job Success Score of at least 90% or a Rising Talent status 17 weeks ago and also in the most recent week, but not for a number of weeks in between, your number of eligible weeks will stay the same. This is due to the most recent eligible week being swapped with the one that fell off the calculation.
However, if 17 weeks ago you did not have a Job Success score of 90% or higher but you did in the most recent week, the number of eligible weeks should have increased by one. If that's the case, please contact Customer Support and ask them to review your eligible weeks.
Vladimir, that is not what this is about, at least not in many cases.
There is an issue that's been outstanding for almost a week now with missing eligible weeks. I opened a ticket on this on Monday and have not heard a single word about it.
I've only been here a few weeks, and I have been eligible for 7 continuous weeks as of last Sunday, and it still shows 6. In my case there's nothing to roll off. I also know exactly what date I will hit 13 weeks (May 21) as I calculated it several weeks ago.
Others have reported the same.
There's a problem and it's not being addressed.
ETA: This issue was confirmed by a mod here as being an actual system problem several days ago, related to people missing their TR badges. I believe that issue has been fixed, but this one has not.
Hi Attiq, Charles and Melanie,
We will double check if the Top Rated issue earlier this week affected eligible weeks metric and will get back to you.
Normally, it can take up to almost 4 months for the eligible weeks count to increase. It may not increase every week when you are eligible but only when a non-eligible week falls off of the calculation and an eligible one is added. We have a very helpful graph at the bottom of this article.
