ESI

Something went goofy with my ESI. I noticed over the past couple of days it jumped 20 points. Based no my submissions I expected it to jump 1 or 2 points. I know in the grand scheme of things it doesn't matter much, but I wanted to point it out just in case someone would want to check it out

    If someone posted a score to games you have competed on and your score beat theirs, you get a boost. Not saying that happened, but it could be what happened. So even though you didn't submit anything, you still beat other competitors thusly boosting your ESI

    One other thing to consider ... if you lost CR on a wrong vote, but that score then gets disputed and the dispute goes through, you'll gain a bunch of CR back all at once.

    Yeah, there are a few reasons it could happen-I don't watch the numbers as closely as I used to, but I wouldn't always get "automatic credit" to my ESI after a score went thru, or an increase in W/R numbers, until a few days later, seems to have to "catch up" sometimes.

    Okay ... so it turns out that I'm a flaming idiot. I know ... shocking, right? The OP was about ESI, not CR.

    Anyway, Poco's scenario is the most likely if your ESI jumped 20 points in a short period in the absence of any new submissions. Another reason might be several other people had their submissions accepted on tracks where your rank on that track was higher than theirs, as you'll get between a 1 and 2 ESI bump for each entry added. That can add up if you have a bunch of existing records in active tracks.

    I feel less like a total doofus, now.

    It went back down a couple of days later. It went from mid 50s, to mid 70s to high 50s. Strange. I know it doesn't matter much, I just happened to see it and thought it was odd.
