Lol true that Optimus Uber
Btw if we are talking conspiracies ( which I love to discuss ... As I think 9/11 was an inside job and mass shootings are at times government created ) I think that ping priorities goes into a good mix of some uber algorithm BIGGER then we think ..
So if I were to smoke a doobie ( which I don't )
I would then say that ping priority algorithm deep inside uber secret bunker goes like that -
A combination of ---
1. Your 5 star comments ( shows how you are REALLY likely when someone appreciates your ride ). Aka quality of service ...
2. How u rate your RIDERS ( yes .. Believe it or not ... I'm sure uber pays attention to this ... Keep in mind that pax are the one feeding uber and us ... So they wanna make sure pax are happy with their ratings ...
3. Location ( somewhat )
4. Matching pings with previous riders ( happens to me quite a bit lately ). .. That builds good repor on the customer side
5. If your car is moving or not ...
If u are driving 70 on the fwy and there's a car idle the ping will go there )
And 6 .... If u write an email to uber saying "hey I don't get pings " ... Cuz 3 years of experience.. When I do that ... Shazam .. Pings starts coming in
So ya ... U might think I'm high bringing those points up ... But throug massive experience with uber .. Plus common sense .. And also KEEPING IN MIND THAT CUSTOMERS FAVORS ARE THE MOST IMPORTANT THING TO UBER ... Then those conspiracies about pings might actually be true
For example ... Every time I get a nice 5 star comment from pax ... I feel like I have 3-4 glory days from uber where I get nice select pings coming my way even if I'm not the nearest ant ....
