Points question

Points question --

I'm not sure how points work here. I'm not in it for the points but am curious. My point total went down 4 between yesterday and today and there is no notice or explanation for why that change took place. Is there any way to find out?

There was a bit of a troll incident last night who downvoted a lot of posts, causing some temporary reputation loss. While it was handled (thanks mostly to @ArtOfCode), it'll take some recalculating to get all of the scores back to normal and the team simply hasn't had a chance to do that yet.

For the near future, the Codidact team is trying to figure out ways to prevent voting attacks from happening - there should be some updates coming on that within the next few days, I believe.

For the not-especially-near future, we're looking at removing the displayed points / reputation and replacing it with other metrics to show domain expertise and site expertise to work with the upcoming Trust Level system. This is, however, still a little while away from happening (and the specifics are still up in the air).

Like any library, this site offers tons of great information, but does not offer personalized, professional advice, and does not take the place of seeking such advice from your rabbi.
