# How do you lose rating?

I know you gain ratings but how do you lose them. Few things come to mind:
1. (not true) The ratings are timed out, i.e you lose them after a fixed period such as two weeks
2. (true) You gain ratings by solving problems correctly but you lose ratings for answering a problem incorrectly
3. (not true) you lose ratings by opening up a problem and then giving up and exiting that problem without a solution

You can track your rating changes on the Stats page

Do you mean rating? You don't lose points. If you do mean rating, then i) isn't true. Only ii) is true · 2 years, 3 months ago

Siddhartha, you are correct, I did mead ratings. And thank you for your explanation · 2 years, 3 months ago

:/ I misread the ii) part. Only the first part is true. I'm pretty sure the second part of ii) (the opening a question part) is false. You don't lose rating (I think) for just looking at a question. The only way to lose ratings (Again not sure) is by answering a question wrong. · 2 years, 3 months ago
