Top Answerers List
Question

I'm still having problems with my answers in the VC++ General Forum.
My points are fluctuating widely in this list. Yesterday, I started with 39 points and finished with 34 and I had 3 correct answers from alerts. I'm sure I didn't have that many (8) correct answers 30 days ago. At the same time, I can observe other participants that show a flat number of points in this table, notwithstanding the fact that they barely get a correct answer. How can that be ? I'm giving up, until this matter is straighten out.

I assume by points you mean answers. Fluctuation can certainly happen as the number of answers is time boxed to 30 days. We can take a look at your answers specificially if we have time.

Thanks for your reply.
I understand that the counting is done for the last 30 days. But how could I have the number of answers shown on the top answerers list varying from 39, to 38, to 35, to 34, in the same day (Oct. 9th) ! And more, on this day I had 3 correct answers from previous days, which I aknowledged from alerts.
At the same time I can observe other guys in this list, that don't seem to be answering much, and keeping theirs answers almost flat.
