Thanks for your prompt replies.
Shirley, last night I had over 1000 points accumulated for the month of October so was surprised when I saw the 100 point badge on my profile page today. It should have been the 1000 point badge.
Since this is the second time this has happened, I was merely curious as to what is the technical reason the system drops points. If I have about 1020 points or more at the end of the month, the 1000 point badge pops up on my page for that month. If I have between about 1000 and 1010, I receive the 100 point badge (at least, this has been my experience).
I'm here for the purpose of genealogy so points don't really matter except it looks like I'm slacking if I only get the 100 point badge when I've gone over 1000.
Ahh, Vincent, you may have hit upon the reason. Sometimes my edit pages stay open so long while I'm researching, I can't remember if I've saved or not so I go ahead and hit the save button again. That would account for just enough points missing to drop me under the 1000 points. The new pop-up message should take care of that problem--if that is the problem.
