Losing rate points?? I just lost 50?!

I was getting excited as I had 499 rate points and thought I would soon reach 500. Suddenly I looked and I had only 450 left! Is this one of the bugs they are fixing or can you loose them that easily? And to what? I haven't been making much posts as it took me a lot of time to answer all my responses (I think it's the most decent thing to do, at least thank people for posting a response), so I hadn't a lot of time to participate in others or post new ones. Anyone have a clue how this works? It's really odd...

Kijk - Terms of service
Sometimes it is a bug but the terms of service says that they will dock you for posts or responces they do not like or whatever. I breezed through the new terms of service thing and picked up a little about that. Check it out though to be sure. It gives more examples of what they don't want andwhat they want.... that may be why you were docked or it may be a bug.:) Cheers!

I think that might be the case, when I started out I thought there was no harm in posting number games, etc. With these new terms of service everything became a lot more clear to me. I guess that explains why I lost so many rate points. I'm glad I know better now. Thanks a lot for replying! Have you ever suffered the same thing?

That is definitely not good.. losing your rate points after all you've done. I think you should point this out to the admin, they could have made a mistake. 50 points is sure a lot to lose. I hope you will get it back.

50 points does seem like a lot to lose. I wonder if someone has been going around giving you a negative rating...or there could be some kind of a mistake too.

Mine went up over night. Keep in mind that your rating is affected by any positive or negative rating marks you get from members. Also, if you had discussions deleted or you posted on discussions that were deleted your rating will drop.
