# Cannot see rating of own problem?

Imgur

Is there any particular reason why you are unable to see the rating of your own problem? The problem is rated Level 4 Combinatorics, yet it does not show it. It does, however, show it for problems made by someone else:

I would be grateful if someone could fix this. Thanks!

The reason is this: although you see the rating for your problem when you click on it, it's not the official rating until a while after you've published it. You can verify which one of your problems are actually official by searching your name and going under "Problems". · 2 years, 6 months ago

Thanks. So 6 days still isn't enough for a solid rating?

Also, why can I see the rating for other's problems? They had posted their problems at about the same time... · 2 years, 6 months ago

When the rating is displayed is dependent on the number and level of people that solved it. Once sufficient people have attempted the problem, a rating will be displayed.

For example, if less than 10 people worked on it, then it would be hard to determine an accurate rating. Furthermore, if 20 level 5 people can successfully solve a level 1 question, that doesn't give us much info about the accurateness of the rating. (should it be level 2? level 3?)
