So I've friended this character recently. On my main home tab, when I look at the monthly score, he's in first place with 7k+ points. However when I look at his profile he only accumulated 3.5k points. Anyone care to take a guess at what's going on?

May he/she have deleted a language?

That may be it, but shouldn't the points still remain? 4000 points missing?? Why would someone just give up on that much work?

What if the missing points are from (Other language to English)? From the English side, you probably wouldn't see those points.

Sorry, Zigg, I just check out my last hypothesis about whether the person could have been learning from (other) to English. Those look like they would show.

You should move this to the "Troubleshooting" section where this belongs

It's not really "troubleshooting" more of a mystery....

I guess, but there's less traffic in the "troubleshooting" board. Higher chance of responses on the general one.

Okay, that makes more sense.

It's not really trouble shooting. Zigg is just curious. He's asking about something that may actually be an intended function of Duolingo.

He's not asking Duolingo to fix something.
It's similar to someone asking in the general board how to use the Immersion section.

Might be because for the month he's in first but over all he's got less..?

Every point you earn is tallied into 3 sections, weekly, monthly and total. Since all but the last reset at a given time, the third must always be the highest.
