I noticed that the actual global group points of older puzzles differ from their previous values.

A few examples:

#107
group: VC PF xkcd L'AF Rt
old: 70 54 48 32 16
new: 69 61 54 31 15

#108
group: RDF PF L'AF UoC MoT
old: 58 37 32 16 14
new: 57 36 31 13 11

#109
group: PF RDF UoC Rt xkcd L'AF CzNT
old: 75 55 47 40 34 17 8
new: 74 54 46 39 33 16 7

#110
group: RDF OG VC PF L'AF UoC Rt xkcd
old: 88 77 67 58 44 38 14 5
new: 87 76 65 56 48 41 13 4

#111
group: AHAP OG PF RDF xkcd Rt L'AF UoC
old: 88 76 66 58 50 43 32 14
new: 87 75 65 56 48 41 34 12

This also concern beginner's puzzles and puzzles older than #107/ younger than #111.
Maybe this concern solo and evolver scores, too.

What do you mean by "previous" values? What are you comparing the current scores to?

I made the score tables in http://foldit.wikia.com/wiki/Groups
Therefore I needed to copy the group points from the foldit-site into an Excel sheet. These points differ from their values one or two months ago.

For example: In Puzzle #111 http://fold.it/portal/node/624775/show_groups my record says for "L'Alliance Francophone" 32 points, the actual puzzle page says 34 points. For "University of Chicago" my record says 14 points, the actual puzzle page says 12 points.

I don't know if the scores also changed, because I have no records of them.

Points were re-calculated when either groups were removed (e.g. Freedom Folders), users deleted, or spammers were deleted by us. This may have affected the number of players playing on a puzzle, causing the points to change. Of course, the relative order of players has not changed, so the points should only be a few off in each case.
