# Problem ratings

If I solve a problem before it is reshared by a Best Of feed, then will it influence my rating?

It seems like this provides a weird incentive to hang back on answering a question until its been deemed to be a good problem by the staff.

Your rating will be influenced only if the problem has a rating at the point in time when you are accessing it.
