The same thing happened to me like @oscar-lake, but It caught up the same way.

If you click on your point total at the left, it will take you to the leaderboard, below which is a link telling you how points are awarded.

And it could be as others have already said, that the point system was behind for you and just caught up. It does seem to work funkily at times.

Hi guys!

Some MAC users may experience this update at once if they're using the Yosemite OS; but as you mentioned as well, it may take some time before the system reflects the points you've earned in one session; even if you're not an apple user... Our IT Dept is working in making sure the point system as well as other features of the site work properly... Regards!

I haven't had any problems with delays.  It might be your network or server is slow or the Mbps is not enough.  Also, try cleaning up your PC.  Delays are sometimes caused by too much "stuff" on it, too many windows open, too many cookies, etc.

The problem I run into is if I haven't cleared the previous day's points. I find that if I refresh my screen, the current points appear, clearing the previous points. I leave my computer up all the time so when I return to Rocket Spanish the next day, the points total from the previous day is there and I forget to refresh while racking up more points. Once I refresh, it shows the correct number.

So, not two days ago I posted that I had not experienced said problem but gave some ideas on solving the issue.  Well, I am now experiencing the same problem.  No points are accumulating and I have shut down the app and restarted it, I've rebooted, I've tried different actions to get points to display and ....nada.  So much for the advice.  Maybe it will kickstart here soon with this post.

Thread revival....I have 1101 points everywhere except the leaderboard--then I'm number one and number six with 116,824 points! I know this is a glitch, but I'm liking this! Just saying :).

I don't know if the points thing has been fixed as of today but yesterday I noticed there were three different point totals.  First, my actual number of points, then the points that appear in the Points Goal (usually larger if I am doing the exercises) and then to points on the leaderboard for the day.  This is where I found I had earned >200,000 points for the day and some people had earned >100,000,000 points.  However, the all-time totals remained correct.

OK - it looks like it is still acting that way.  One people has 1.2 million points today, more points than that person earned for all time.

Hi Robert and KelllaurBailar,

The IT team are still working on the point inaccuracies however they have rolled out a fix over the weekend meaning any points you earn from now should be accurate. The extra points earned before this fix should be corrected in a couple of days. 

KelllaurBailar - you only earn points on a forum post for the *first* answer to any question, so you won't earn points if you have already posted in the thread. I hope that helps!
