"Score" in JSON APIs

I was looking through the JSON file of my user profile, and I noticed that on there is an object called “score”. What does this mean?

Are you talking here on meta or on the admin page? On the admin page there is a bounce_score which is calculated based upon the number of bounced emails Discourse sees.


I wasn’t talking about the admin page, however, score = bounce_score would make sense.

Can you share what endpoint you’re finding this on?

Ah - that’s because you have a featured topic. Score is an attribute of topic.

It’s calculated by the server to help determine a number of behaviors, including what posts get sent in your digest emails.


Ok, good to know. Thanks!
