Wrong Score in Profile

So far I have not found any way to decrease score in Dev Skill profile (unless someone disconnects his/her UVA/Stackoverflow/Github accounts)! Yet it has been observed that my total score increases and decreases without any activity. Recently I came to notice that number of commits (in github) shown in my Dev Skill profile is different in different time and total score changes accordingly. Is it due to a bug or the API works in some 'peculiar/unexpected' way?

Hello,
Score can decrease if we do some score balancing.

But we are not sure what happened in our account. it can happen that the github api failed to collect score for your account due to some authentication issue. we need to investigate more about the issue.

can you provide us more info about the inconsistent nature that you have observed. for example for which month or date it happened, and what is your devskill username. please explain what you have observed with as much detail as possible and we will check the issue.

Actually the score decreases and increases and decreases and increases.

I don't know whether it has anything to do with the following rule from FAQ:
All scores are automatically added in your total score instantly when you solve the problem (unlike 3rd scores which may take 6 hours+ to update).

Anyway, I am uploading two screenshots (taken on 7th January) which show different commits in github. The second was taken few hours after the first had been taken.

And I have observed that it happens daily!!!

We have already predicted that the problem can be in github API, your screenshots confirms this.

As our members increase, the strict limit of git hub api is unable to process some user accounts in single try and it needs to wait for an hour to get recharged to continue collecting data from github. Your account must have fallen in the middle range where this is happening.

We will fix this, Thanks for informing.

For last 2-3 days, there is a new problem; no of commits is being shown as 0 for some profiles.

Example: shakilaust, rezwan4029 and mine (mahrahat).

Hello,
Thanks for the input.

We think it is due to some communication problem with github. So we will make some adjustment in our service to handle this soon. But no worry because the service will update it many times, so even if it miss sometimes, it will update in next 6 hours. because it refresh the data every 6 hours.
