I usually have well over 100 contributions, but I've only been awarded one Club 100 badge

This is a recurring issue.  I have only gotten one badge (in October) since September, but I made well over 100 contributions for at least 2 other months. It's no big deal, just wanted to let you know that there might be a technical issue.

First of all, thank you so very much for all your wonderful contributions! As a fellow WIkiTree member, I'm constantly feeling ever-so-grateful to see the work others are doing to put together the biggest genealogical jigsaw puzzle in the world. Your contributions matter, and you are truly appreciated!

With regard to the Club 100 badge--
I've heard that these badges are not awarded by a system, but rather by a human--and sometimes I'm sure it's possible that there have been oversights. 

I suggest you edit this question and add the tags "badges" and "100_club" to it, to bring it to the attention of the folks who can see to it that this issue gets properly addressed.

Please consider the time zone you are in, I believe that the badges are awarded each month according to the GMT. 

For instance if you live in Tennessee USA like I do, our time zone is CST but the badge total for the month ends on GMT  so when it is midnight GMT on the last day of the month, it is only 6pm CST here. Anything added after 6pm my time, on the last day of the month, goes into the count for the next month.

Thanks for the input.  In my case the time zone wasn't the  problem.  For the months in question, I had more than 100 contributions well before the end of the month.  On more than one instancce the badges page showed messages that I had earned Club 100 badges (and needed so and so points to earn Club a 1000 bad.  I've had 4 months with 100+ contributions, but there has only been one badge issued in October.  Like I said it's not that big a deal, but it is a recurring issue.

Also, contributions to the tree are counted in a different system than the contributions to the G2G forum. To get the badge you need 100 contributions to the tree.

Thanks for you reply.  Practically all of my contributions were to the tree, where I'm much more active than the G2G Forum
