My System Specs

Default Not sure where to post this about levels

Not that it's a big deal but I was wondering why I was level 7 with 3 to level up then a few minutes later I was level 7 with 180 to level up. Shouldn't it have gone to level 8?

Not to sure how the whole system works, but it could be a recalculation of the activity percentage. I believe it is based on all the forum members as a benchmark; so if there was unusually high activity in the forums recently, it brings the benchmark up (we have had a number of recent contests), and thus if you are below the "average" your activity percentage drops = drop in total contribution. Likewise, if your activity is stale for a period, it drops the % and thus drops points.

This is pure conjecture mind you.
