Hi Pooja! I am collecting points for my incentive program and trying to get a free license for Adobe Captivate for a couple of months, and I made it to Explorer so far. When I log back in after a couple of hours, all my points are lost and I am back at Newbie. Who should I contact to resolve this? 🙁
