296 -> 295?

Hi GFC2 team, why did the scored number of IFPs change from 295 to 296, then back to 295?

Thanks!

That's painful. It looks like they voided one already scored question and scored another and pushed you off the 5th place bubble. There's 11 or 12 questions left so you're still a contender. I'm a railbird now but I feel your pain.

Thanks, @Lars, for your understanding. :) Let's wait for GFC2 team to clarify.

And wait. I suppose they are still on Thanksgiving break and their PDP-1 misread a hanging chad during the nightly batch.

Hi GFC 2 Team, could you please answer this question, what caused the hiccup (295 to 296 then back to 295 again)? Was some IFP voided?

Thanks!

The resolution for IFP 3104 was withdrawn because of some issues with the resolution data source, Privacy Rights Clearinghouse. They have confirmed that there are errors with some of their incident classifications. If a correct dataset is issued in time, the IFP team will re-resolve it. Otherwise the question will be voided.
