1) Message boards : Number crunching : Total credit went down? (Message 70159)
Posted 31 Oct 2020 by Robert J. O’Hara
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!
