Another job well done by our Treasury Men in Action!

YES!  mine came and went the same way, it's as if we're going through a revolving door really fast and all the gold stars are flying out onto the sidewalk.

Are Gold Stars gone for good?  I just checked several dozen stations along the west coast of the US and not a single station is flying their gold star. Perhaps a new virus (GS-20) is spreading and knocking out all the gold stars.

I haven't seen a Gold Star in a while. Under My Devices the column for them is also gone. But I've seen that column disappear in the past only to reappear later.

Did a search in my area of other pws. Not one gold star. But then again, it is tax time :lol:

KPARENFR4 shows no recorded values except pressure since December first. That must be the new criteria for getting a gold star, stop all your other sensor values from uploading.  :grin:

The Goldstar concept has apparently been resurrected by WU after being absent for months. 2 of my 3 stations now have that designation. Been that way for a couple of days now!

I'm jealous, nothing in my area yet. I spot checked 6 or 8 nearby stations including a couple of Davis stations always had one previously but no joy.

They are starting to reappear in my neighborhood now. No luck for me yet but the two closest Davis stations have one and a few others nearby too.

My 3 pws no longer have a goldstar, none of the pws around me have a Goldstar any more and when clicking on logging into WU then showing your “devices” the column that used to say Quality then display the Goldstar is no longer present.  Bottom line? WU continues to show disrespect to all of us that send them our data.

I thought this was funny. 
I'm set up for those "Gold Star Alerts" where you are emailed when you lose or gain your gold star.   This morning I received an alert that I GAINED my Gold Star at 1:30 AM and then another at 1:41 AM that it was lost.

Where does one set these up? I've looked everywhere I can think of but haven't found it.

But you can't set it up anymore as the person running this service has taken it down. I suppose though if you got in early then your alerts are still running.

I never set it up. The whole thing is pointless.

Thanks, I was afraid of that.
