Seriously, WTF. Am I the only one using this thing? Clearly LinkedIn’s QA people aren’t.
So here’s the background. Every time I have some PYMK suggestions, I click on the “see more” link and I dismiss the ones that aren’t relevant until I’ve got none left. If you do that on a regular basis, you completely stay on top of it and are never overwhelmed by a lot of suggestions. Well, except when LI tweak their algorithm or you add a few new contacts.
Now here’s the new scenario. Every time I get some PYMK suggestions and I’ve clicked on the “see more” link, it shows me ONE LESS than the number of suggestions I’ve actually got. If I’ve got 3, it shows me 2. If I’ve got 11, it shows me 10. That final unseen suggestions only appears when you click an “X” on one of the suggestions.
Today I got three suggestions.
I clicked on “see more” and it showed me (the first) two.
I clicked the “X” on the first one. You’d expect the second one to shift over to the left wouldn’t you. Nope. Now we get the missing number 3 inserted into the first slot.
So I click on his “X”, as I don’t know him either. Now finally number two slides over.
and after clicking his “X”, all three are gone.
That seems like somewhat bizarre behaviour to me. The logic going along the lines of “OK, he’s clicked on see more, so let’s display all his suggestions except for one, which we’ll insert into replace the one he first clicks on the “X”. Why wouldn’t they just show all of them, like a normal person would.
