How can a Member of ISC regain higher status?In ISC, a Member acquires Platinum shield after scoring 50,001 points. Similarly, a Member acquires Diamond shield after scoring 10,001 points. But to retain Platinum shield, a Member has to score 10,000 points annually. Similarly, a Diamond Member is required to score 2500 points annually to retain his/her Diamond shield. Otherwise, the Member will be downgraded to the lower level.
In this connection, I would like to know the following:-
(a) What are the conditions to regain the higher status for such Members who have been downgraded? For example, let us suppose a Diamond Member was downgraded to Gold for not scoring 2500 points in the subsequent year. How can such Member regain his/her Diamond shield?
(b) How the 'annual' points are calculated? Let me take my own case as example. I gained the 'Diamond' shield by 17th June, 2016 (it may not be accurate). So, would the annual calendar for me (for calculation of subsequent points) start from 18th June, 2016 and end on 15th June, 2017?
Editors and Senior Members may kindly explain.
