I would like to participate, but concerned about cooldowns.
This is my first time doing one of the challenge events, but how are cooldowns during this event?
I would like to review many nominations, but don't want to be hit with the cooldowns. I tried what most people suggested on how to avoid cooldowns but I sometimes still get the occasional cooldown even when being careful (taking my time on each review, don't vote in certain patterns, making my review ratings more varied, etc.) I also have a Great rating on my Wayfinder Rating, so I'm not like cheesing my reviews or anything.
It just feels kind of demoralizing when people try to do quality work and still get punished for it.
You dont have to worry. Relax a bit and just review. I didnt have any cooldowns today.
No cool downs yet today, I've ran through 100 relatively quickly
I've had two cool downs, so it is a valid concern. How I got them, I have no idea as I'm reviewing normally and it's super slow, but it is what it is. Not sure how I'm supposed to get 500 if it keeps stopping me from reviewing though. T.T
I was hit with a 2 hour cooldown last night, so yeah.. No matter how much time I take or how diverse my ratings are to the reviews to avoid voting patterns, it'll still happen.
I was reviewing off an on for two hours and just got hit with an hour cooldown. It happens sometimes but I wouldnt be too concerned about it interfering with the challenge
Updating since my last comment: I've literally gotten cooldowns every day since this challenge started because it encourages me to review more than normal.
After finally getting a few slow reviews that load super slowly, I get hit by 6-12cooldowns. I've gotten cooldowns every single day of this challenge when I normally rarely get them. How can I get to 500 SPANISH reviews if it loads slowly then when I finally get them I get hit by a cooldowns because the challenge wants me to review more than normal?
Yup. Hit with a 6 hour cooldown because "irregularities were detected", even though I took the time to check streetview and duplicates or each nomination. It'll be the same scam as the Russia Wayfarer challenge all over again...
Got one here too.
