I don't get it.
We have a member of Spark People who had a total of 405,473 points listed on June 30 (the last day of the month). On the last day of May this member had 391,929 points listed. Hence the person must have earned 13,544 points in June.
Yet for June points only 5,052 points are listed for this member. How can there be so much of a disparity of almost 8000 points?
And there's another member who has a total of 333,994 points right now but had 318,597 in May. So that person earned 15,397 points in June but the master list says that the person earned 5642 in June. That is a disparity of almost 10,000 points.
Can anyone please explain these high rollers to me? I would like to ask them but their pages are set to private. Even if these people are earning massive points for posting, it would seem that their monthly totals would correspond to their monthly increase in points. Or is there something I am not getting?
I think a hard-working person who is really working Spark cannot hope to get much more than 6000 points per month. So I really do not comprehend the disparity in points. Just click on "All Time Spark Points" to see. I am not complaining, I am just befuddled by this academic or mathematical problem.
