Daily averages bug?

These figures seem very odd - the total is probably OK (down from before as I've had a machine unable to talk to the outside world) but at 23 per day, it would have to have been built up over something like eight years...

Hi, Julia. That does seem a bit odd... I can see you've earned a good deal more than 23 points on average in the past few days. I'll look into the computation of that average and see what might have gone astray among the different projects.

(note that your total points are not affected by this and are still being tallied; ~800 in the past 24 hours)

Count me in on this, too. My daily average is 1/3000th of my total for this jackpot.

We're still working on getting these averages back in place, it shouldn't be too much longer.

The average is not used in determining jackpot entries, though--only total points are used for that--so we're going ahead with processing the latest jackpot (which has reached 100%) and entries should be posted shortly.

I believe we have a fix and your averages hav started to increase. While they may still seem low, they will gradually go back up when you return new work.

Please note that the calculation of the averages isn't as easy as taking the last day's points - instead we look into a longer streak of time, therefore it will take some extra time to reach the "normal" value.
