Astrobin index going down

23 Oct, 2019 17:20
Why does my Astrobin index  keep dropping.

I have been keeping a watchful eye as I heard others were having similar problems.  I only just managed to creep onto the "last 6 months" Trending Astrophotographers list recently (as far as I know).

These are readings I have been getting:
8/10/2019        Score: 98.33       Position 100
11/10/2019    Score: 97             Position 97
13/10/2019    Score: 104.76      Position 91
17/10/2019    Score: 103           position 94 ( but a drop of 1.76 in the score)
23/10/2019    Score: 100.43     Position 100 (but a drop of 3.43 in the score)

So why does the score suddenly go down.

I have not deleted any images and have been getting a fair number of likes over this period.

The "last 6 month" list takes only images of the last 6 month in account. So if you uploaded a wonderful image on 20/04/2019 it would have counted at the date of 17/10/2019 but not anymore at the date of 23/10/2019. At least this is my understanding of this statistic, so it is no wonder that your score changes there.

Ah yes, I get it.  So it comes off the beginning as the dates progress.  Never thought of that.
