  • I see your profile shows 647 points, but the pie chart of points adds up to 717 (365 + 350 + 2). Is the pie chart correct? Also, do you know if your statistics look correct?

  • This may happen if the blog receives bad ranking or gallery contribution receives a bad ranking.

    BTW, the points for 4 and 5 start ranking are no longer coming. This seems to be a bug.

    I also noticed recently that my points lost 5 points (no explanation).

    I think that 717 is correct. My points automatically decrease from December. 

    Yesterday 662  now 642 :).

  • Yes, I observed the same. My score is 3442 as per the PIE chart but it shows as 3377. :)

    If we get a bad rank on gallery or in wiki why no notification sent. We can correct if we commited any mistakes.

  • There is a bug currently related with the blogs. All bad ranking for the blogs decrease points, but good ranking do not increase points.

    Also, starting recently new blog posts do not add to the total number of blogs. Say, I have 7 blog posts but my profile only shows 6.

  • You mean Wiki Articles bad rating? I don't think I have rights to do BLOGGING in MS site. I lost 5 more points but no notification. If I get a notification it will help me to improve the quality.

  • I think we do not have ratings for Wiki articles anymore.

    In my case I know it's blogging when I see negative points.

    These are my 7 blogs

    I think there may be some separate bug affecting small amount of people and their points.

    If you would be able to identify the reason for points decreasing in your case, it would be good.
