Can I post negative scores to GameCircle leaderboards?

I am implementing GameCircle leaderboards in a game where it makes sense for leaderboards to contain both positive and negative scores. Is it possible to post negative scores to leaderboards? I get an error response when I try to submit negative scores, but positive ones seem to work fine.

You probably can't.

I've also checked in the dashboard, and setting the score threshold less than 0 results in an error in the dashboard, so it seems that negative scores are not supported, but I haven't found mention of this in the documentation. Can someone from Amazon please confirm this? Will negative leaderboard scores be supported in the future?

Thank you for your post. We do not allow negative values in Leaderboard. We have forwarded you suggestion for negative values inclusion to the appropriate team.
