POINTS

Wed, Jun 22, 2011 at 9:29 PM Sticky

Points are awarded to users based on activity on the site. The current set up is like so:

Repeatable:
Post a comment, Value: 1 pts
Post a blog, Value: 10 pts

Unlockable:
Signup, Value: 1pts
Be a member for 5 days, Value: 50pts
Be a member for a month, Value: 100pts
Be a member for a year, Value: 500pts
Have 5 friends, Value: 50pts
Have 15 friends, Value 100pts
Have 50 friends, 500pts

You can view your points history by clicking on your points total in the dashboard, or on your profile.

Now what do they mean? In the near future items will be made available for purchase with these points, Some of these items could be physical, or digital. I can't say yet what these things might be but they will be awesome! We have some improvements in the works for the points system like rewarding a blogger for creating a popular blog with other users (based on original comments), or starting a thread in the forums that gets a certain amount of replies.

When you spend points your visible total will remain the same (as other users see it), but your available points to spend will decrease, you can view your spending history on the same pages mentioned above.

    Points for posts on the forum page
    And like 10 points every day we log on to the chat page.

    The whole point system is probably nothing more than just a point system, something to achieve to satisfy yourself. They're probably something like Xbox's gamer points. They're nothing special, just shows you've accomplished something in the game the developers thought was worth while.
