So I'm just a small-time contributor, and I created a team that I hope to develop but that at present includes only me. At the beginning of October the total team credit was 105,881, but today (30 October) it is 104,643. Shouldn't that number always be going up? (Or at least staying the same?) I understood it to be a cumulative total, so in principle it shouldn't decrease.

What might account for this? Was there some kind of internal correction to the database this month? (Or did I just copy the number wrong at the beginning of this month?) I've been recording these monthly totals for almost two years and this is the first time I've noticed a decrease.

Many thanks!

You are right it should never go down even if you gained and then lost a person on your Team the credits they earned while on your Team would stay with the Team.
