Tech contributors: How come my points were dumped?

We all appreciate contributors to this forum. Some of you techs are very wise and we all look forward to your wisdom. Even the best of us can only rely on our own experience and want to share with those in need of advice. An added incentive is the points people give out as a measure of appreciation. Early this week, I had achieved a point score of 128. The next day I logged in — gone! What the heck happened? Any reason why I got dumped?

Re: Tech contributors: How come my points were dumped?

You should probably get with one of the forum administrators. They should be able to get you back to where you were at point- wise before it got wiped. Should have a backup somewhere....I would think.
I've noticed the forum has been acting a little bit weird lately...Drops off line, can't access it for 2-3 hours sometimes times...Real slow response....


Let us know if you get any results...Keep up the good work....

Re: Tech contributors: How come my points were dumped?

Thanks, Joe. Unable to raise anyone at HP so far. That's why I thought bringing this out in the forum might get their attention. If dumped for a reason, then why? Can't imagine.

Don:

I don't think your points were dumped. IT is just that they list different people for the quick achieving high points this week.

It is easy for me to say this ----> I really don't care about the points anymore. It gets old when you help people resolve their problem and they got good advice to fix the problem in a timely manner for Free and they don't even bother to assign points to the people who spend their time and knowledge to help out free. It is not like those people have to pay or something. Oh well. What could we say.

Thanks, all. Let's all keep on learning. Replying to problems keeps us thinking doesn't it?

Don,


Yeah...that's why I do it. As a general rule you'll probably end up running up on it again "somewhere" on another printer. Almost never fails...

Re: Tech contributors: How come my points were dumped?

Dewaine and Joe,

Amen. I don't really care about the points any more either. It's good to help people out, and if they assign points, that's a bonus. If not, I just move on to the next one.
