Moving an app to a new category? Punishment applies?

Does anyone know if when you move an app from" puzzle" to "cards" for example, if there is a time out for the "moved app" to be ranked in the top 100 of the newly chosen category. A sort of punishment period making devs think twice in respect to constantly moving apps around?

Nope, none. It's more or less seamless.

Bravetarget,

I am with you on this but recently when I moved an app to a new category it doesn't show up in the charts even with sales in small markets. I am wondering if you start at 0 sales ? Anyone else experience this?

No, it doesn't start at zero. Did you have a Top 100 position before the move?
