I have been reading through this thread to understand things a bit more, but I am a bit confused. I joined Bitcointalk less than a month ago (August 29th), and I thought my activity would increase yesterday, but nothing happened.

Not sure how I got 28 activity after the first 2 weeks only, because I thought you could only get 14 activity points every 2 weeks. I thought maybe the system could have changed, and that's how I got 28 activity on Sept. 12th (I had around 30 somethings posts then), yet when activity was updated yesterday mine remained at 28 and I have over 70 posts now.

Could there have been a glitch and that's how I got 28 activity so fast or did I miss something else? (btw I also just commented to see if that would do the update, and nothing). Thanks!

It is normal. The forum takes some time before displaying your updated activity. You have 42 activity now, that is what you expect, right?

About newbie getting 28 activity, yes that is normal too. Every new account could get to 28 activity (2 x 2-weeks period) right after creating the account. That is not a glitch, just how the activity works (not sure why tho).

what is the next date for updating activity?

Please tell me if possible. Some time ago I found a list with all the dates for the current year, but wasn't able to find it again...

Hi Antragos! This is the link to the activity update list. https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/12saLhlUoqIdairxzuSPu6EYGrt7FN2lOstO1yDjCEbA/edit#gid=1012758442

Cheers!

Thanks for sharing! I find it interesting Bitcointalk already planned all the way for the year 2060.  XD

Yeah.. these activity increase is really confusing. I thought you only get 14 activity every 14 days right? or is it different?

We all went through the same process. After a certain time spent on the forum, some things become clearer. I used this treat https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=178608.0 to learn more about this topic. Check it and many things will be clearer. What's certain is that without paying attention on how many posts are published, only 14 posts are taken in to the count in 14-day period. If you are posting only for ranking, you may get a warning or to be rejected from the forum.

Yes, you get 14 activity points every 2 weeks if you post at least once in that period. It's confusing at beginning but you will understand it soon. Activity updates every 1 hours so be patient . Try not to spam because it won't change much. There is a lot of spam because newbies think that their rank is going to increase with every post.

Yeah I hope to get the concept soon enough. It is explained very nicely on the first page of this thread, however I was still confused as some say that they got 28 activity in two weeks.. is that even possible?

Well, It's only possible If you posted at the end of the first activity period and the start of the second activity period. If for example I registered today, I posted 14 posts, and It happens that tomorrow there is an activity reset period and I start posting again just after it occurs, that will give me another 14. For you, It may sound that you got them in two days but for the system, It really doesn't matter because you will only a maximum of 14 activity per two weeks regardless of your registration date, It happens at the same time for everyone. Let's say that the Activity reset is between  1-14 October and the second one is between 14-28. Whether you post on 1st, 2nd or 13th October, the activity reset will occurs in the 14th.

Still trying to clearly understand how my rank changes.  Will I not receive a rank change until two weeks after I opened my account? Or does it update daily based on my activity/posts?

Thanks!

Hello and welcome to the forum. To better understand the logic of calculating activity, I would recommend that you first read the first page of this treat. At the same time, I would recommend you to look at the beginner section. You can find a lot of interesting information there. Questions like yours are logical for beginners and we all had similar ones.

Yes, this also happens to me.  I thought it would take a month before i rank up to jr member.  But instead i rank up in two weeks, lucky or there's an explanation to this.  Maybe it will carry over to my next rank up moment, whick mean i really have to wait a long time to rank to the the next level.  Let see and wait what will happen tho.

Thank you everyone for the replies and input. My activity updated at some point yesterday, so I am officially a Jr. Member. Still confused about how I got 28 activity within the first 14 days (instead of having to wait 2 x 2-weeks period) .... but I will take it.

Sure you can make a donation to get extra privileges:

Donator:Manually applied by administration after 10 BTC donation, and gets 5 gold coins under his name
of which the last is half green. 5 coins are shown regardless of post count when user is a Donator.
VIP:Manually applied by administration after 50 BTC donation, and gets 5 gold coins under his name
of which the last is half purple. 5 coins are shown regardless of post count when user is a VIP.

There seems to be a lot of confusion how Activity Points work.
I was reading through the last sites, but I have not found a definite explanation of AP.
Did I just miss it? If yes, could someone link me to it?

activity = min(time * 14, posts)

Time is a number of 2 week periods in which you have posted at least ONCE. Even if your account was from 2013 it doesn't mean that it can have a few hundred of activity points. Posting over time is more important than making a lot of posts in a one period. Activity is updated every hour so be patient and don't write thousand posts why your activity didn't change.

Yeah, that's easy to get, however, I got to 28 AP pretty fast (Some other users were mentioning this aswell) and now it appears I am stuck at 28 (for a few days now).

That's because this two-week period started this Wednesday. So if you started just before the previous period ended you could get to 28 in just over two weeks. Now it's not possible for you to increase activity again until the next period, Wednesday after next.
