When I came into this site today, I noticed that it looks like 10000 of my Brownie Points disappeared.    What happened?  They've been pretty good lately about keeping the Brownie Point

I have signed in the last 3 days and yet I don't have any Brownie Points.  Is there a trick to this?

20,000 of my brownie points disappeared a few days ago, but I knew they would eventually return. Next day they were back. I just assume they are working on the site when that happens. For the last 2 days I have had to sign in every time I visit the site. I think this we become "ok" again soon.

Well, they did it to me again.  I came into the site this morning and saw that I was missing over 10,000 points.  So, I tried something - I signed out and signed back in.  Amazing, there were my missing points.  Try that instead of waiting a few days.

Thanks for all your posts. This morning I was 9000 points short, but because of your post I know I don't have to panic.

Well, the site hiccuped again.  Somewhere around 15,000 points are missing.  I tried refreshing the screen and even signing out and back in.  Maybe they'll be back tomorrow?

Jean, that happened to me too.  Instead of sending an email I went on the live chat during the day.  They were able to check my account and the next time I logged in everything was right.  Fortunately it hasn't happened since then.  Live chat might be the fastest way to go.

This has not happened to me....yet....
I figure we have yet to find out what they are for and....
I just assume that since the missing points always show up again maybe the Keebler Elves borrow them.  They possibly use them to trade for chocolate chips for the Elven Poker Games. They must not be good players or they would repay with interest.

When I came into the site this morning, my points are back.  I guess they aren't finished getting all of the kinks out yet.

If the hiccup dosen't straighten it's self out contact VBB.  They have been good about restoring my points when the site had a hiccupped, as long as I let them know about it.

I have a story you won't believe. Three weeks ago today, I came to the site and where my name should be, there was Judy P. I thought boy, that's odd. So I went into myVBB account, there was my name, my avatar, my brownie points were right. So I made a post about it, then like a dummy, I logged out intending to log back in and hopefully Judy P. would be gone. No... I could not log back in my credentials did not match in their system! I contacted them and to make a very long story short it took them 3 weeks to fix it. After 2 weeks, I told them to delete my account that I would not be back, but I received an email today telling me it was fixed. Now how many brownie points did I lose (if they are ever even going to be worth anything!)? So disgusted with them.

Debra M, I was wondering why I have not seen your beautiful face around lately.  Glad to know it was just a glitch and nothing serious.

Nikki and Nancy, glad to know I was missed. Now I wonder who Judy P. is? Me and Nestle went around and around! ha ha. I was given no explanation, just that everything is okay now. I do have to sign in every time I visit though. I missed out on what you all have been up to. Hope everyone is well and I'm trying to read older posts to catch up.
