    Oh, absolutely, it's good to help identify the issue. 

    However the current solution of manually correcting the points for people who are pointing out specific threads where they should have received points is not a good one, and is biased.  That's something Chitra needs to bear in mind.

    I understand and completely agree.Apologies for causing confusions.

    I initially thought of it because users who contributed should not loose the points.But yes we do not want to do any bias.We may have to look this from different perspective.

    I will discuss with the team and let you know about manually assigning the points.

    Sorry for the inconvenience ,

    If this is not now futile, also this, both helpful and correct...

    I agree the problem should be fixed retroactively as well. We just can't check the threads all the times and feed this one with manual update requests, all the more when it's about database communities. I guess writing an update (or merge) script to fix the problem shouldn't be such a big deal, and you can find volunteers here ready to help with the statement if necessary

    I guess the one which gave me points before to post here (and making it looks like a random thing) was probably more

      was later in the day and also gave me point if not wrong.

    Do you really mean that, or did you mean to suggest that perhaps it works in some communities and not in others?

    Absolutely! I thought there was a pattern at first as I didn't got a correct one for 10 days or so, but then I saw it was more "random": one works, one doesn't. So ... good luck for finding where that thing come from

    Someone hasn't inadvertently added a rule to limit the number of helpful/correct points a person can earn in a day have they?  I recall something like that is in place on the Community Ideas space to stop people just earning lots of points from lots of comments.
