I have a question regarding how the Author Reputation points are computed. Note that I have published until now 4 articles and I know that each downloads generate 1 points, each bookmark 5 points, each upgrade vote 10 points, etc.
1)I have a total (for all 4 articles) of 9419 downloads => 9419 points;
2)A total of 330 bookmarks => 330*5 = 5 = 1650 points;
3)A total of 106 votes, and more then 90% of them are the maximum value 5;
4)Also I gain some points when the article is published;
If I add only the points from 1) and 2) => 11069 Author points, but in the CodeProject UI I am having only 9268 Author points. Why is this big difference?
There are limits on how many of the same event per day can occur.
For instance there is the limit of 50 up-votes a day (so you will only get points for those 50 up-votes even if you got 60 up-votes in that day).
Not saying that that is the cause but it could be.
Altough since the max bookmark = 1000 a day and there is no limit on downloads there does seem to be something wrong.
This has been asked earlier[^] too. Adding to Tom's reply, you don't get points every download. It's once per unique download. By unique, I mean, if I download 10 times you will get points only once (+1 only) but download count will be +10.

If something has a solution... Why do we have to worry about?. If it has no solution... For what reason do we have to worry about?
Help me to understand what I'm saying, and I'll explain it better to you
Rating helpfull answers is nice, but saying thanks can be even nicer.
Ok, It would have been a nice feature though. My Code Project account is linked to my work email and I cannot easily access my work email from home. My home email is gmail and my company security block me from accessing gmail. Now I'm having to have 2 Code Project accounts... sucks... I'll definitally have a look at the advice you gave. ;
