Some of you probably have wondered: "Why does the surfing total listed in the "Surfing" column on the positions page go down at reset some days, and stays the same on others?"

Apparently I had it all wrong myself thinking that it was based on the day being dropped...now I mostly understand how the 14 day formula really works according to this post by DeHawkinz, our Super Moderator:

If the day that is dropped (day 15) is the same as the last full day (day 2) the your total surfing value will not change.

i.e. (For Example) if you surfed 1000 sites on day 15, which has now been removed from the stats as it no longer counts, and you surfed 1000 sites yesterday, then the amount of sites dropped (1000) equals the number of sites added (1000)

Still as clear as mud? - OK, I will demonstrate below on a 5 day basis i.e. (For Example) it only counts 5 days not 14.

01/01/01 - surf 117 - total surf 117
02/01/01 - surf 123 - total surf 240
03/01/01 - surf 231 - total surf 471
04/01/01 - surf 111 - total surf 582
05/01/01 - surf 139 - total surf 721
06/01/01 - surf 117 - total surf 721
07/01/01 - surf 109 - total surf 707

On Day 6 you lose the results for day 1 (-117) and add results for day 6 (+117) so no change in total surf
On Day 7 you lose the results for day 2 (-123) and add results for day 7 (+109) so drop by 14 in total surf

The StartXchange system is the same except it counts in 14 day increments.

That should clear up the mystery on what happens every night when the daily Activity Points Earned get reset...
