This issue has been solved. See solution.


I have used symantec connect from last 1 week.

Before three days I had 32 points.

Today i have observed that i have -65 points.

Due to this i have seen detailed point Approved and declined and i found that i had -100,-5 and -5 declined points.

I had not done any malicious activity over here.

I Want to know why this is and haw it can be reverted?

the thumb's down, leading to -1, used to be in effect a while back (talking 18 months and maybe even before that), but this was removed. Instead, what happens now if you get a thumb's down, you don't lose the point.

There was a bit of abuse (I was 1 of the guys to copy something where a user went on a bit of a rampage, created multiple accounts and thumbed a lot of my posts down), so I guess this was a major reason for taking it away.

I've checked your history so far, and you have 11 comments (11 points), 2 Ideas (2 x 5 points), and 2 forum threads (2 points), giving you a grand total of 23 points. It's quite possibly a glitch in the system, and I'd suggest you contact an admin via a PM.

You can check your points on your profile and see if you really are getting any -1's.

...did you perhaps create a forum query as an article? This would see you get 100 points initially before they got removed.

PM Leslie Miller on the link below...I am sure she will be able to help you...
