Why have I lost my MakeUseOf points?

Josiah Brunne September 16, 2012

Yesterday (14/9/2012 in Australia) I had 130 Points on MakeUseOf and now, today, I Only have 50. What happened and how do I fix it?

    You must have logged in with another social media account accidentally. I have two accounts for you on record. Both with a gmail address, one starting with a 5 (300 points), the other ending in junk (50 points). Just log out and log back in again with the right account.

    If you wan, I can delete the second profile.

      Yes, I've done something similar before I realised what I was doing wrong. Didn't makeuseof have a single Disqus community log in a while ago?

        We switched from Disqus to native WordPress commenting a few months ago.

      Hi Tina,
      Yes, could you delete the one ending junk?
