In the past few days the points I get from my downloads dropped drastically (by more than half). Normally if it is due to downloads being slower than normal it tapers a bit, but this literally got cut in half overnight. Did something change? Is there an issue with the points atm? Thank you.
The following was posted in the developer discord, specifically regarding this month's large slump.

I'm running out of words to place here to start a news post!
For those of you concerned about points, points are dynamic! This means they change based on the money in the pool from advertisers! The start of the year has a normal global slump in advertising budgets.
The number of points in the monthly pool may have decreased from the previous month, or other projects could have gained in popularity (or your projects' popularity may have waned); all projects gain their daily points from a single monthly pool. Months with fewer days in them will generally see more points per day than longer months, and also near the end of the month you may see a significant point increase."
