# 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

Do you mean rating? You don't lose points. If you do mean rating, then i) isn't true. Only ii) is true

Siddhartha, you are correct, I did mead ratings. And thank you for your explanation

:/ 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.

Thank you again Siddhartha. It's very nice of you to take the time to answer my question
