I noticed that my total points earned is higher than the total added together of all the subjects listed below it. I know it's not really that important but I just thought I would bring it up to you.

Thoughts: Could some of the points earned in older modules between 2014-2016 not be applied to the subjects after being removed/replaced?

Well have fun with that :)

EDIT: I was referring to my profile page and the totals displayed.

Hi Darrell,

There are other points that are awarded, such as upvoted forum answers, that are not included in the subject points, which is why you might see a higher overall total number of points. Once points and badges are awarded, they won't be removed if the course on content is retired, so that shouldn't be a factor there. We do hope this information helps!

Best, Kara

When hovering over the subject there is a tooltip that separates achievement points from forum points. So you're saying that points received for upvoted forum answers for the topic are not added to the forum points in the tooltip?
