I'm sorry to be posting this as a Diary; the only Open Thread I see here is the Night Owl one, and I'm pretty sure that no one would see my question if I posted there.

I've been a member since 2005, and within the last year or two I became a Trusted User with a Mojo of 4 bars (at least that's what it was the last time I happened to see it). Anyhow, today I went into my profile to check some things out, and suddenly realized that my Mojo has changed to 2 bars, and I've lost TU status.

I haven't gotten hide-rated ever, and though I know I don't post too often these days, I DO recommend comments and Diaries as needed, and post here and there when I feel I have a contribution to make. Do people just lose TU status and Mojo bars at some point when they aren't considered "active" enough? Which would actually be funny in my case because I'm logged in and reading and recommending and following my favorite Authors on an almost continuous basis (since the end of August especially, since I "retired" from my full-time job as the Dem Election Clerk in my local Board of Elections).

Anyhow, I guess I just wonder if this has happened to anyone else, and if my low-key participation here has caused me to finally lose my TU status and Mojo bars...If so, I'm pretty sad about it, because I really took my TU status seriously and tried so hard to be a responsible member of Daily Kos. Curiously, it was one of my badges of honor in an otherwise unremarkable life ;)

Thanks to anyone who has some kind of insight into this for me, so I can figure out how to get my Mojo back :)

Edit: BOY! You guys are GOOD!!!

Thank you to everyone for their helpful comments and generosity, so that I'm back in the game here ;)

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
