Total "PRO points" vs. total answers

Maybe this had already been asked, but it's a rather specific question, so I wasn't able to find it using the search feature.

So, the question is: if "non-PRO points" get subtracted from your total points on your profile page, why doesn't this extend to the total number of "non-PRO questions" answered?

In other words, if I have 100 answers chosen by the asker (and awarded with 4 points) and someone then decides to reclassify 99 of them as "non-PRO", why should my totals show that I answered 100 questions, getting a total 4 "PRO points"? This doesn't give off a particularly good impression, IMO...

I think only PRO figures are shown May 8, 2016

Hi Mirko,
Are you talking about the indicator on your profile page, where it says:
KudoZ activity (PRO) PRO-level points: 1943, Questions answered: 902 ?

I think the "Questions answered" figure means the number of PRO questions answered, not the total number of questions answered.
Check your KudoZ statistics page: the first table on the left should show you the Total questions answered (first number). That is probably greater than 902, right?
There is a "Percent non-PRO" and "Percent PRO" figure, check if those makes sense.
Here is a link that should show you your KudoZ statistics page (I say "should" because I cannot test it.)

Thank you for your reply, Katalin! You're right. I had actually looked at that stat page in the past, but I guess I completely forgot about it...

Here's what I get:
Questions answered 1052
Answers accepted 585
Acceptance rate 55.6
Percent non-PRO 13.9
Percent PRO 86
Average agrees per question 1.84
Average disagrees per question 0

Actually, the question popped up in my mind when I tried the TM-Town thing and my profile there showed:

2,310 Pro-Points | 0 Questions | 902 Answers

So I thought 902 was "PRO" + "non-PRO", just like the points (that seems to be a mistake on their part, by the way).
