Last week you could get a Silver badge with a RAC in the high 5k, now you need mid 7k. Did I miss the memo?

I have a 2.8 Ghz quad core iMac with an Iris Pro GPU. On 9/17 I reached 7000 RAC running 3 cores at 75% + the GPU. I then turned off the GPU and ran 4 cores at 75%, I lost 200 RAC in 6 hours. So I went back to my original settings but I’m still losing RAC, I’m down to 6,500 RAC as of 9/26.
One thing is different I stopped taking Astropulse, could that make that much of a difference? Another thing I noticed is my ‘Validations’ are 103/65 that seems a lot higher than before but I didn’t keep track of those numbers.
I updated the Boinc app each time I made the web preference changes. I’d appreciate any help.
