This morning, when I switched on my computer, I was shocked to see that my hard-earned KudoZ points are down to zero. Is this a temporary problem with ProZ\'s SQL server, or I did something wrong and this is Purgatory before descending to Hell?

Anyone else experiencing this?

You're not alone Sep 27, 2002

I know this is no help, but it happend to me as well - so I hope this is some problem with the server. Anyway yesterday I had a lot of problems connecting to proz. Server was down most of the time I tried and when it worked it was very slow.



I really hope we\'re getting our points back. I didn\'th have too many - I just started - but I was very happy about them - it was a start at least.



Do we have to contact somebody special, or will this \"error message\" go through the moderator?????

same thing happened to me Sep 27, 2002

I have also written to the support. When I click on \"more leaders\" and on my profile the points are all there - they have just disappeared from the homepage, so maybe some links are broken. I am sure it will be repaired at soonest; in these last few days there have been some difficulties in visiting the website but I have also read in the technical support page that maintenance works are planned for today, so let\'s wait and see...



bye

Me too... Sep 27, 2002

The same happened to me today.

Proz would not open for hours, and my kudoz = 0. I hope it\'s only a temporal problem.



Sincerely,



Pili

a good starter Sep 27, 2002

I had a good laugh at it.

What IS annoying, however, is all the delays, failures to open questions, to post gradings or answers, etc. which were so frequent these days.



Cheer up!

renewal Sep 27, 2002

It happened to me just now. My platinum membership expired yesterday at midnight. I logged on this morning to renew, and my kudoz had gone to zero. As soon as I paid my renewal, they went back up to normal! Coincidence?

A bug? Sep 27, 2002

My KudoZ total is also put to zero. At least, BrowniZ are still there...



Hopefully, it\'s just a temporary bug.

Click on BrowniZ points to display the BrowniZ page & refresh the ProZ homepage, KudoZ will be back. Sep 27, 2002

Click on your BrownZ points to display the BrownZ page & refresh the ProZ home page, KudoZ points will be back.
