  • Hi David, please see the following link:

    There are a few ways to lose points.  One of the more common ways is if one of your questions was initially marked as answer, then later unmarked as answer.  In this case, you would have gained points, then later lost the same amount.

  • Thanks. I actually read the link that you provided. It must have been:

    "Your forum post that was marked as an answer when contributed in less than 8 hours was removed by the original question asker." -20 points

    Still, it does not look good if the reason for losing points is not specifically recorded.

  • Hello David,

    you can request features here http://social.technet.microsoft.com/wiki/contents/articles/4703.feature-requests-for-technet-and-msdn-profiles-and-social-platform-tools.aspx

    Looks like noone asked for including unmark activity in the profile yet.

  • Actually, there were requests to show the 'Unmarked' activity, but they were denied for good reasons.
