I've noticed that since completing enough challenges to hit 25,000 credits my credits aren't increasing anymore.
It does say in the FAQ "Completed a Challenge" has a max credits cap of 25,000 within 365 days. Is that going to remain that way? Do previously nulled points get added after the 365 days? Is that system designed to reward the less savvy user by encouraging slow completion?
If you take into account the points that I got for the vulnerability disclosure and all the little extras for logging in, posting etc, the number is is off between my total credits and my points credits.
