what is surprising is that you know the exact value of the points you had before..

Please see Points and Ratings by Sue.

We incorrectly computed your points in the change that we made two weeks ago. Rather than awarding existing users 125 points * # of problems you solved, we awarded 125 points * # of problems you viewed. Oops. In any case, we rolled back the change and recomputed, using the same method outlined in the above note. Apologies in advance for any confusion this caused.

They messed the points up and accidently multiplied the number of problems you viewed instead of the number of problems you solved. @Ashtik Mahapatra
