Hi, guys.
I found a weird issue to my ratings( not sure if it is weird since I do not know the rating calculations well)
here is the case
my overall rating was 4.77 ( was 4.78) yesterday with 1 day rating 4.33 ( 2 pax gave me 4 stars on yesterday from 3 trips)
after today's trips, my 1-day rating raised to 4.71 ( got 3 pax's 5 stars out of a total of 5)
but.. my overall rating went down to 4.76.
I do not know hoiw Uber calculate my rating, but I only know if I receive 5 stars, there is no way to drop my overall rating down..
has anyone got this issue before?
I tried to contact Uber, but someone just replied me like a robot, and nothing he said was helpful

Yes there is a way...

Lose 5 5-stars and replace it with 3 5-stars (like in a 7-5-365 day average) and your rating will drop.
still confused... I got 3 5 stars today, and 2 pax did not rate me yet..why does it cause a rating drop?

let's make the question simply.. why does my rating drop after receiving 5 stars
How do you know you had a specific amount of ratings?
I monitor it every few hours. if I finish 2 trip and a rating is 4.5, that means I got a 5 and a 4,etc..

Keep in mind people can rate you on a yesterday trip today so you can pick up 3 5s today and a 3 star from yesterday
..you'll never know which is what Uber wants

I keep monitoring my 1 day rating, it raises from 4.33 to 4.71 from the last 9 trips done on 10/1 and 10/2
since it is raising, means pax gives me 5 stars only (otherwise it will drop)
but meanwhile my overall rating drops by 0.01

If you lose more 5 stars in a day than you gain your rating will drop

9×5=45 1×3=3...48 ÷10 =4.8
7×5=35 1×3=3...38÷8=4.75

I can't explain it any better
It's all about the number of rated trips

maybe true. but if I were the pax, and not satisfy with the driver. I would leave him/her a 3 or 2 stars at the moment I get off the car....not a month, a year later..just my opinion..

POST # 11/hao: Bear in mind, that YOU
have the Courteous
and Responsible MINDSET of a Business
Owner. Many PAX behave like naughty,
spoiled children and only worse if after
taking drugs and/or OVERdrinking!

I will recommend READING Posts of

ing a "Tough Love" strategy that Treats
PAX Fairly...but FIRMLY. Both are Well-
Knowns in the LA/OC Forums mostly

Bison, actually I drive in San Diego.
I try to be professional to all passengers. I keep a good score after more than 2000 rides.
I also make sure people respect me, and my vehicle.
I am not opposed to ending a ride early and inviting people out of my car in what I call the PAX DUMP.
Sometimes you have to do it.

How do you do a pax dump?
I had a loud and obnoxious drunk who I wanted to drop... I just didn't know if it was going to affect my rating.
