Why is this map (among others) seemingly removed from my archive (with no ability to relist my maps)? It seems that a bunch of maps of mine from 2006 are unlisted...

Is this what is skewing my ratings on my profile? Case in point: Image

I know I'm not the first person to suffer this, but it wasn't always like this...
Can anyone offer an explanation, or perhaps a solution to fix this glitch? I'm trying to find an old map of mine, and it's proving very difficult when it can't even be found within my own archive...

Seems like an issue across multiple users, I've seen that weird ratings graph on a few profiles.

That's usually a good idea.

Now, about the graph: From what I recall, the graphs are funky because disabling ratings & delisting/relisting maps screws with them somehow. As you'll see in exhibit A, astheoceansblue is a notorious disabler of ratings, and he's got a healthy pillar growing out of his midsection:

Image

Now, in exhibit B, you'll find that cahu, who left before delisting was a thing and only disabled ratings on three maps, has a pretty great chart.

Image

This is just speculation, since Arachnid is gone and won't help me out at all. But really, I wouldn't worry about charts since they're so broken.

(PS, maybe because I'm an admin I was able to relist that map. I'll relist the other ones if you'd like.)

A theory: the ratings of delisted maps are counted as negative instead of being ignored; the chart drawing code doesnt expect that and so the curve warps to the other side when it should be below zero.

About ska's delisted maps thing, I would liked to comment to you about that in NUMA in several occasions when I saw your map counter and asked to you about that but never did it. I remember seeying your map counter much higher, even in your own N-wikia page it says that you has 328 maps as 'ska' and I think that figure was pretty outdated since that because you published several ones, and now your map counter is at 276 maps, I think you have delisted more or less about 75 maps. You canno't just browse your 'Delisted Maps' (logged in) and relist every one of them? Please.

About the ratings graph thing, I think it is pretty simple to me, and here's my theory: I think it is another bug of NUMA code, at least well-known to me, because I noticed it years ago and always I posted a map with the intention of a later delist I disabled the ratings. What I whant to mean is that if you have a huge amount of maps delisted with 'public ratings' your graph just breaks just because of that bug. I think it happens when you have a full page of maps with public ratings delited (10 maps) or a couple of pages, something like that, there are a lot of profiles like that over NUMA.
By the contrary, if your maps delisted have no ratings, or not public ratings or disabled ratings, you can just delist as many maps as you want that the graph it will never go bugged. See at me, since I was aware of that, or at least I had the intuition about it, I always cared my profile and if I submitted a map which it later will go delisted I submitted it with ratings disabled as I said. Currently I have more than 40 maps delisted (you can find them listed at my profile) and my graph it have no bug as you can see.

This is the the thing: it's not like I went through my archive delisting a bunch of maps from my archive; I just wouldn't do that (mainly because I can't be assed, but I digress...)

No, clearly a bunch of my maps have just disappeared from my logged archive simultaneously, so that I can't even track them down under "delisted maps"... at least until aidiera kindly was able to add them back into my "delisted maps" page. However, this doesn't explain why the vast majority of these maps (which I had never delisted) have ended up on that list in the first play, nor does it give me an option to relist any of them, like I used to be able to do...
