New +1 Rating System for WunderPhotos

By: Michelle Schlachta , 6:25 PM GMT on May 30, 2014

Since launching the new WU design, we've been hard at work to address your concerns. The #1 request from fans of WunderPhotos has been to replace the 1-10 rating system with a feature that is simpler and more friendly. So, we have replaced the scoring mechanism with a “like-only” feature. Now, if you like a photo you can just click the “plus” button. Here’s how the new rating system works:

- You can plus a photo.
- You can only plus a photo once.
- You can see a list of people who have plus'd the photo.
- Old 1-10 ratings are converted into plus' through an algorithm

We hope everyone will embrace this change as a more friendly way to say “I like your photo”. The WU community uploads hundreds of exceptional images of weather, nature and the outdoors each day. If you see a photo that you don't necessarily love, we encourage you to check out the entire collection of WunderPhotos on the site. Put a +1 on the photos you like, and add them to your favorites (by clicking the star button) if you want to save them to your profile.

Quoting 126. WU_947352:

I'm curious why my barometric measurements are consistently lower than other stations in my area. My barometer range is typically 950-980. I see no stations, and there are stations from sea level to 4000 ft., that ever dip below 1000. I am at 1575 ft with relatively high humidity, rarely below 60%, but high humidity is normal in east Hawaii. My neighbor's equipment measures consistenly with mine, so I don't think it is equipment. I confess my knowledge of b pressure is limited to alt, temp and humidity and also is 40 points all that significant?

I have been using the following webcal address to update the weather information on my calendar. It stopped updating since Monday. Is it also a temporary database issue or a permanent shut-down?

already today I have 4 comments that are floating some where in space .. when you hit the enter bar ones comment should show up in their comments .. this has been on going for months .. not something that is just recent and it still hasn't been fixed ..

Always seem there is someone else to blame other then WU ...

Wab, I can see your blogs - are you still seeing that message?


if you notice I complained about the same problem Dec 4 .. been a month and nothing has been done to fix the problem for it to be going on this long saying they can't find the problem is not cutting it .. have they even looked ??\
A month with the same continuous problem is way too long .. other sites don't have nearly the problems WU has and the people here would like to know when it will be up graded to the reliability of other sites on the web !!!!

Another comment from Jeff Masters about the blog glitches.

9:32 PM GMT on January 05, 2017
FWIW...Apparently Jeff Masters posted this in his blog comments today:
"Sorry for the continued problems with the blogs. The admins are looking at it again, but the issue is difficult to resolve since we are transitioning to serving our pages from a 3rd-party source (Amazon Web Services) that doesn't give us the sort of diagnostics we need to really dig into the issue. In the longer term, we are committed to junking the entire blog software system in about three months, and will transition to a 3rd party blog software system called Drupal."
Jeff Masters

Considering the above, doubtful anything's gonna change real quick. Will take a while to get the parallel universe built. And maybe we will find no (member) blogs there. lpl

Far as I am concerned, the worst problem in blogville is clicking on a blog title on the "MemberBlog Directory / active blog page and being taken to a message, "This entry has been removed."

This happens because something, whatever it is, flips the click to the blog owner's first blog. Some of those first entries have been removed. But the current entry has not. Funnier, even though the old blog is removed its title appears on the browser tab.

had to write a comment 3 times before it showed up .. I log in and click my blog and I'm taken to one of my blogs from years ago .. while reading a blog I was kicked out of the blog with a screen say an error occur when I had not done anything but scroll the page ..

the Gremlins aren't being fixed and the thought on the blogs is the programmers you now have working are not competent enough to fix the problems !!

So when will anything be done ??

The blog title on the blog list takes you back to the members' first blog 50% of the time - now getting totally frustrating.

The error notice when you try to post a comment is happening 50% of the time and another 25% the comment doesn't post... it disappears into the ether! The favourite cities we picked occasionally show cities not chosen as favourites.

I have been a paid up member for 11 years, but this last couple of months the issues and glitches are really beginning to get "old"!

Come on WUnderground - sort it out!!!

I've had the same thing happen as whitewabit--notices I don't have any blog entries or that my current entry doesn't exist. Those notifications sometimes appear when I post a comment in my blog. Sometimes the comment is eaten and I have to post it again. Refreshing--sometimes 2 or 3 times, has always brought my blog back. It was disconcerting the first time it happened, but it's a minor annoyance, not a crisis.

Sorry if this has been asked but I'm not seeing a place to search previous posts. Since Adobe Flash is being phased out and Google Chrome will soon not display by default, I'm wondering if someone has written an HTML5 version of the plugin like the one I use on my website that has my webcam embedded in it.

We don't have an HTML5 version of that plugin. Sorry for any inconvenience!

Yeah not sure how a particular blogger (ncst**m) on the main blog is allowed to take shots at others under the guise of "standing up to bullying" when I and others know their true intentions.It is not standing up for someone being bullied,it is taking the situation and turning it into a opportunity to take personal jabs at others who they are angry at.Their post stood and I only saw the post because my account was acting funny again (switching me in and out of being a member and a non member).Yet mine was deleted when I took the opportunity to stand up for myself.

the accent characters only mess up if you try to edit a comment, I know for certain, and if a post is quoted by someone from what I've seen lately.

(it could possibly be that a page is not set to unicode format to cause the errors)
