I got a "very helpful" rating on a review I wrote today and I swear to God it said five points. I only ever remember it being three. I'm starting to worry my memory is fading. If it is an increase in the points system though, that's AWESOME, and a big thank you goes to the LitReactor gods!

They changed it. That doesn't mean you aren't losing your mind.

@TheScrivener: Aww, thanks! That compliment definitely made my day! :-)

@Nathan: Wow; you LR folks are incredible. It is so nice to be a part of an online community where you guys pay close attention to the forums and work on tweaking things based on our feedback. Being one of the workshop members that posted a discussion regarding the points system, it means the world to me that LR took action based on some of the responses and other similar discussions. I wish there was a way we could award you guys points for being downright awesome! Also, I never took the time to look at the spotlight before but now that I know it contains that kind of content, I will be checking it out every month! Feel kind of silly for not reading it before posting this ...

@Dwayne: Haha yes, it's very possible I'm losing my mind anyway. It's been a rough month thus far.

This wasn't awesome for everyone. 
I lost the value of 40 % of my stocked points. With 80 points stacked, that is a lot of reviews I did without being paid.

Relax, bro. You have plenty of points to submit your work, no? Do you fret when your wages go up, too? Do you ask for retroactive pay?

The value of the points themselves hasn't changed. It still costs 15 points to submit. Points can just be earned more quickly than before with quality critiques.
