Hello, I wonder somebody can help me this: my BrowniZ does not increase. For a time, I am too busy to visit proz.com, but since last week, I drop quite often, answer KudoZ, peers comment, but do not quote any job, yet my BrowniZ remains, never change. Why? Can somebody help?

Click browniz in profile and refresh page which comes up Mar 9, 2007

If you click BrowniZ in your profile, it will bring up a page showing a breakdown of your browniz points. If the total at the top of the page is higher than the one in the profile box (which still shows on this page), click the reload (refresh) button and the browniz figure in the profile box will be updated.
I doubt if this will help, because BrowniZ should be updated daily anyway, but it might be worth a try.

Maybe you're not doing anything to make the Browniz change? Mar 9, 2007

You don't earn Browniz just by visiting the site, so no matter how many times you come here, that alone won't make the number change. You also don't earn Browniz (as far as I know) for giving your own answers to Kudoz questions. You earn points if you disagree or agree with someone else's Kudoz answer.

There are specific things you have to do on this site to earn more Browniz and if you're not doing any of these things, your Browniz won't go up. And if you're not spending Browniz (for example, by quoting on jobs or buying access to Blue Board entries), your Browniz number won't go down either.

If you go to the "My Proz.com" menu and select "My Browniz", you will go to a page that lists how you can earn more Browniz.

Nicole, yes, I do answer and comment KudoZ (I win 4 points for KudoZ http://www.proz.com/kudoz/1807028), but BrowiZ just simply does not increase. Quite strange.

Hi chinesetrans,

If you believe that you have done the things that should earn you browniz (but careful, you don't get browniz by answering Kudoz questions, browniz are given for peer comments only), and your browniz still don't get updated after 24 hours, you can submit a support request at this page.

Hope this helps.

Regards,
Özden
