Why is there a difference?

The top section of my brilliant page says that I have 71,130 points. But according to the leader-board, I have 72,525 points. Could somebody from the staff please tell me why this is happening?

Yes, I have seen that too. Why does this happen, @Calvin Lin ?

Hey everyone, thanks for pointing this out. We are not sure whether this is a bug or just an issue of one number updating more slowly than the other, but we will look into it.

It is a cacheing issue, give it time to update.

I see that you (now) have 72655 points.

But the top of my page is still showing 71665 points. In other words, the difference still exists..

@Shabarish Ch It seems like it takes some time for the points to update. I'd look into this further, and try and make it update more often.

@Shabarish Ch Lemme say, It actually is because of the negatives u got in practice section. Happens with me too :)

@Krishna Ar There are no negative points, even in the practice section.
