The badge is just recognition of your contributions, it doesn’t remove your count, that continues to rise as you continue.

There are currently only two monthly contribution badges--100 and 1000. If you make contributions in the amount of 1-999 you get a 100 contribution badge. If you make 1000 or above you get a 1000 contribution badge.

I had two different replies. ONe that my count would continue, but it has been erased. I would like to have it back.The count I had built in July was over 300 and

August was granted the 100 badge and balance was left

in my badge account for September, but this time

the excess amount was erased.  How does this get

put back in my count,

Margaret
Your contributions currently number 695. They aren't erased, they still accumulate.

The badge, however, is only for contributions made in the given month.

You can view the total number easily at the G2G profile page here: https://www.wikitree.com/g2g/user/Thompson-59044

The badges page gives the number for the current month.

Your Profile page (yes, same name but now on the genealogy part) give the total overall (see top area) https://www.wikitree.com/wiki/Thompson-59044

The badges are awarded monthly and the count is reset for the next month.  Your total count (lifetime) can be seen if you look at your contributions.
