in points in the recent past? Not sure if this is linked to the user
interface changes that has taken place. I have had two instances
of point reduction, one for 3 points, and one for 2 points in the
past week. Also, I received a 61% score for a book review, but
I have a feeling that less points have been added for that purpose than
it ought to be.
I have written to Scott on these, but I also wanted to check with
the community if anyone else is facing these issues.
Thanks & Best Regards.

Unfortunately, no explanations in any of the metrics or the history for the reduction of points.
Specifically in the last 10 days,
1. my points went down from 15 to 12 with no explanation.
2. A review completed and points up from 12 to 16.
3. Again points went down from 16 to 14 with no explanation.
There were no actions from my side which would have resulted in a reduction of points
because of a penalty or otherwise. If these were indeed penalties, I would expect that to reflect
in the history, but there's no such reasons in history either.
Request you to go through the database for my case, and point me to why the 5 points

The only possible explanation is that the system (that calculates the points) did a step-wise reduction instead of a one-time reduction after a review was completed. Thanks everyone for listening and providing your inputs.
Is it possible that your newer reviews have had less replies or people viewing them? That impacts your score some.
