Total names "shared with the Temple" is being reduced by some unknown reason. Why???
How do I get to a private forum with a qualified person who can discuss this with me?0
Briefly outline your issue in the "Temple Category" and request someone private message you.

I quoted parts of this conversation and started a new topic under Temple. @Earl Garrett Morris, I did mention you so if your setting allows it, you should get an e-mail regarding the mention with a link to take you right there. it is here: https://community.familysearch.org/en/discussion/129941/copied-total-names-shared-with-the-temple-is-being-reduced1
Hint: if the title of your question includes the word "Temple", that's the category you should've used.0
@Earl Garrett Morris, to my knowledge there is no limit on the number of names that can be shared with the Temple. How do you know the number of shared names has been reduced? How did you experience that? How large a number are you talking about?
Also, a Moderator should move this post to the Temple Category for you.0
The Family Search program has always shown the number of names that one has shared with the Temple. When I got to 73,000 names "shared" the number shown upon opening began to be reduced to a lesser number. The last time, yesterday, when I opened FS the number was 66,000. I am not interested in setting a record for "names shared" but I am curious as to whether names I have shared are being removed from my "shared" list and, thus, being "unshared" with the Temple. I do not have a phone number to call to talk to a qualified person to discuss this, and I am not interested in having this question plastered in a "public forum" but I do not know of any other way to get an answer.0
If I remember right someone had a similar question in the Temple Category https://community.familysearch.org/en/categories/temple0
Thanks to all who have responded to my question as to why the total names I have generated in FS from Descendancy research, and "shared with the Temple" has, for some unknown reason been reduced by a significant number. To this point no one has an answer.
Some have reported that when a "shared" ordinance is completed that ordinance is removed from the "Shared" list. That is incorrect, the ordinances "shared" always remain on the contributors summary list. FS does show, on a daily basis, what "Shared" ordinances were performed and in which Temple.0
