Top 10 - Me? - Featured Member too?

Wow!  I wake up this morning to find that I am a Top 10 member and the Featured member on the Community Home page.  Just 2 weeks ago I was not even in the top 1K. 

How did I get here?  I have no clue.  I have posted more in the past than in the last 3 months - although this month has been a bit more prolific.  I was top 1K for a long while, maybe 9 months, until I lost it a couple of months back.  Then, each time I came in and posted for a day or two, I returned to the top 1K.

About a week ago, I logged in to find that I was top 100.  Now, top 10.  Interesting.

The main change in my profile has been in the Value score.  Spotsline says this comes from the ratings you get form other members for your posts based on their status.  For months I had been in a free-fall on the Value score even though I was receiving 4 or 5 stars for all posts and the posts had scores of 90s or better next to them.  I even posted a question to Sporstline in the Support area, but the responding poster has no clue what  Value score was and gave meaningles answers.  It would be nice if their support personnel knew more about their own site.  They kept telling me my reputation was 99 and they didn't know what I was talking about.  I asked them to click on the Value tab and tell me why I was 30-something.  They didn't even know what that was.  Nice.

Anyway - - Top 10 - - Featured Member - - today is a good day.
