TreeHouse points leaderboard doesn't make sense

If you look at the Points leader board in the Community tab it shows the students who have achieved the most points for the week,month and there is an all time score.

This week the top three students achieved + 20 000 points for the week, but their overall points are all just above 4000. That doesn't add up. If you earned 20 000 points surely your score should be your current score + 20 000 points ?

I think they are having some glitches with badges and all that.

As of yesterday, the problem affecting the leaderboards appears to have been resolved. :tada:

Hey Vincent, I sent an email to the help desk regarding this problem a few days ago. I think they're currently working on fixing the issue.

Did you get any response since last month? I don't see any change yet in the leaderboard.

I just looked at the "All Time" leaders for the Design category, and the top person shows having 51,568 category points on the right side, but on the left side, their TOTAL points is 4,063. EVERYONE in the top 10 has less than 5,000 total points, but more than 43,000 points in the category.

Same thing in a few other categories: CSS, HTML, etc.

Maybe they just fixed "This Week". :P
