Reputation Center FAQs:
Q: Did I keep the same number of points from the previous points system?
A: Yes! Everyone keeps the same amount of points you collected before the launch of the new Reputation Center. If you think you lost points, please reach out to us in Feedback & Support.
Q: Did I change levels?
A: Most likely your level in the Community did change with the introduction of the Reputation Center. This happened to everyone, so your rank will not have changed among your contacts and fellow members. We made some changes to the total number of levels to improve the experience and points earning program for everyone.

Q: Will I get credit for the activity I completed before the new Reputation Center was introduced on November 12, 2014?

Q: I am not getting points for completing an action, is this an error?
