Hitpartners count - bug?

Post by lmviterbo » Fri Feb 22, 2019 6:42 am

I can find my own hit partners (countries, cities or users) under two menus. That would be fine if not for the fact that for some reason they are not computed the same way and the results may differ.

The My Hits menu (My profile | Hits) — notice that hitsource is set to 2, meaning the source is both me and my hitpartners:
https://eurobilltracker.com/my_hits/?co ... 2&intmod=0 (partner cities)
https://eurobilltracker.com/my_hits/?co ... 2&intmod=0 (partner countries)
https://eurobilltracker.com/my_hits/?co ... 2&intmod=0 (partner users)

The user report:
https://en.eurobilltracker.com/profile/ ... 1&country= (countries)
https://en.eurobilltracker.com/profile/ ... 1&country= (cities)
https://en.eurobilltracker.com/profile/ ... 2&country= (users)

Here are the results at the moment for me:
EBT_my_hits_countries.png
EBT_my_hits_countries.png (15.55 KiB) Viewed 134 times
EBT_user_report_countries.png
EBT_user_report_countries.png (13.92 KiB) Viewed 134 times

The correct figures are on "My Hits". The User Report misses some. Notice that:
  • Brazil is missing;
  • Portugal and Italy totals are underestimated;
  • Netherlands and Belgium are in a different order (this is irrelevant though).
The errors are just on the totals. I can see my three hits with Italy both on My Hits and the User Report.

A similar problem happens with City hitpartners. In my case, User Report misses some cities and totals only 54 hits in Lisbon, when the real number should be 204, as can be checked on My Hits, on my view of Lisbon profile and on the list of my Lisbon hits.

Finally, the total amount of users that are my hitpartners are, at least in my case, correct on both My Hits and User Report. They also follow the same order, and both are numbered, so apparently they are computed and presented the same way.

I investigated a little further and here's some more information:

I do have 3 hits with Italy (although only 1 shows up in my User Report, as I mentioned in the previous post):

Code: Select all

2010-10-21 18:24:06	20 EUR	Toscolano-Maderno - Tampere	IT - FI		lmviterbo - nikara	1954	566
2010-03-06 00:36:19	 5 EUR	Lisboa - Prato			PT - IT		lmviterbo - riccccc	1778	199
2009-05-04 12:29:44	 5 EUR	Bologna - Porto Covo		IT - PT		lmviterbo - Ana Luz	1831	30
It turns up that I show up in the list of nikara's hitpartners (also under this other url) but that hit does not show up anywhere in the list of nikara's hits.

My first thought was that, for some reason, they decided to unmark that hit on their shareable hit list.

But then I checked my presence on the lists of hitpartners and hits for both riccccc and Ana Luz. It turns out that I'm there and my hits are there, for both. So I still dont know why only one of my 3 Italy hits shows up in my User Report.

I also checked the lists of country hitpartners for some other users. The sum of hits on those country hitpartners lists is frequently different from the total hits reported — sometimes larger, sometimes smaller as in my case.
