# Brilliant is lying to me?

Why does it say that I have gained 100 points after I answer a question, when I haven't gained any?

Hi Callum -

My best guess is that you're seeing "You earned 100 points" but not seeing your rating move by 100 points? If so, then that's easy to explain - points are not the same as ratings. We can probably do a better job of making that clearer, and are working on it.

If you're saying that your lifetime points (which you can view on your profile) didn't move when we said you earned points, that's a different story and I'd have to look into it deeper.

Let me know!
