Mine started out at 0, then it went to 5, then down to zero. I've been on a few weeks now. I read and comment on a few hubs a day, and try to work a new hubs for myself. I have 4 written now. My scores have progressively gone up a little each day. I'm now at 70. Yesterday I was in the 60's. Not sure how they score this, but it seem like the more you participate the higher your score goes, at least initially.
