AI Checker Steals Upgrades


I attached an upgrade to a nominated candidate on Nov 7, 2023 at 21:51. Immediately it was REJECTED by AI's automated quality checker. This is a terrible system. Please fix it as soon as possible. And please return my precious upgrade.

    You're likely not going to get your upgrade back. I've lost a couple of them to the filter as well. The best thing you can do in future is wait more than 48 hours before applying the upgrade (that's usually beyond the point that the AI will filter your nomination) and appeal the rejected nomination if you believe it's eligible, though I do still maintain you shouldn't have to use an appeal just to get your nomination looked at by human eyes in the first place.


    I can't understand the meaning of the sentence after though in your statement. Is it because of the translator?

    But in any case, if you too had your upgrades stolen, would you join me in demanding that the Wayfarer team get them back? The Wayfarer team often thanks us, but in reality, they disdain our contributions to Explorers reviews. I'm tired of being disrespected.

    *Remember that the quality of current AI checkers is very low. (Please do not comment that the accuracy of human reviewers is low too 😂)

    Sorry for confusing you.

    To provide context, when this happened to me previously, I spoke to the ambassadors about it, and one of the things I said back then was that we shouldn't have to use appeals just to get our nominations seen by an actual human. Basically, if the automated filter makes an error, that should not require us to use an appeal, as appeals have a very limited availability.

    I hope that makes more sense now?


    Thank you. I understood what you meant, but only after I had APPEARED in anger. I lost not only the time and upgrades I spent on the review, but I also wasted an APPEAL that I did not originally need to use for this candidate. I would like my precious APPEAL back too 🥺
