I just added more details about this to the FAQ at the bottom of the post
Why does the review summary score match the reviews page but not the dashboard?
Remember when I said “I lie to you sometimes on the review summary page, but trust me it’s better that way!”. I wasn’t joking.
When you miss a burn review, the item moves back to guru not enlightened. Thus for missed guru items, you’re “real score” on the dashboard will decrease by more than 1 point.
On the reviews page however, it seemed weird and somewhat depressing to see the counter go down by several points. My goal was to make things fun and not confusing, so I opted to show the simplified ‘correct items’ & ‘incorrect items’ score. Thus far, no one has mentioned this discrepancy, so I probably got this right.
On the reviews summary page, I had to chose what to show:
A) the accurate number of points accrued or lost (which the dashboard shows)
B) the “answered correctly” - “answered incorrectly” score, which seems to make sense but isn’t actually accurate if you missed a burn item.
Since the choice seemed arbitrary, I chose B, because I figured few people would notice, it was easier to code and the dashboard is always accurate so there’s not much harm in a little fib here.
But… a few people have noticed, so I’ll probably address this next time I make an update to the userscript, making it accurate in a way that’s not surprising.
