Just to understand the robot.... Why do I have to delete the entry to get it working?
i can explain.. the farr robot is very good at his job, but sometimes he is very reluctant to ever use his judgment over a human's judgment, even when he is very confident the human might be wrong.
in this case, he uses the history score value to set the initial score for the launched item *at the time when he FIRST adds a new launched history item*
after the first time it is added, he assumes you may want to modify that score yourself manually, and so he will not try to "fix" it if he sees it at an unusual value.
so when you changed the scoring value to 10,000 -- he assumed you were telling him that all NEWLY added items should have the higher score, but he was afraid to increase the values for the existing items, just in case you wanted them to stay where they were.
ps. the auto ceiling is used because each time you launch something that has already been launched, it's score will grow just a tiny bit, and that value controls how high it will grow.
