Reputation, Signal & Impact Calculation Enhancements

We’re pleased to announce some enhancements to how Reputation, Signal, and Impact are calculated. These changes will be applied going forward (not applied retroactively) and align with requests and recommendations from you, the amazing community of hackers.  

What’s changing at a high level?
For current definitions of Reputation, Signal, and Impact and how they’re calculated, check out our Docs site.

The table below shows the changes rolled out today:

Our emphasis with these changes was to improve accuracy of reputation points earned, prioritize recent performance stats and ensure peace of mind when submitting bugs that end up being marked as “Informative”. 

Go forth and hack
