    What gives? Never had this one before. Usually they go pretty much in tandem. What a way to start the new year.

    Can someone please explain? Did we change the Hub scoring system? Did I do something wrong to drop from 91 to 89/87?

      No, you are still awesome. big_smile

      4 points is a random-walk, statistically-invalid deviation.

    You're fine - the scores fluctuate a lot. My traffic is also way up, and my score has fluctuated down, too. As long as you're above 75, don't worry!

      Oh, I needed that reassurance. I thought I did something dramatically wrong! Will keep my head and spirits up as long as I exceed the magical 75.

    It's you.  You had a negative thought at 3:15 yesterday afternoon (as close as I can tell with available equipment), and it was picked up by the HubPages Mind Reading by Comment Analysis Software and of course they decreased your score.

    By the way, whatever you do, don't allow your self to believe this, even slightly.  If you do, your score will decrease even more.

    I'll probably lose 3 points later today just for mentioning this.. but I feel honor bound to tell the truth. Let the chips and scores fall where they may!

        Don't worry. Just keep writing rich content hubs and keep commenting in here and on your follow up hubbers..the rest will fall accordingly

      Ha ha you may even gain 3 points and reach 99 and the moment you think its going to touch 100 it crashes back to 96 big_smile

      I used my newly created Hubore software to predict it smile
      Hubore is my hub score software big_smile
