    Default The points system explained

    First thing, don't abuse this system, stay within the rules, spamming crap to get points will result in infractions. My definition of crap is rather lenient though

    You may have noticed some new coloured bars on your posts to the left like these:



    ...and a link to the overall points ranking system on the nav bar like so (Experience):



    This system has been introduced so that user post count is no longer the only variable to show a users worthyness! I'll explain how it works below:

    Points & Levels
    The orange bar shows your overall level and the points you've gained from the various things you've done on the forums. There are 100 levels. You get points for posting, creating a thread, and so on. All these are listed at the end of this post, along with how many points each are worth.

    Level up
    The blue bar shows how many points you need to get to the next level.

    Activity
    The system calculates the activity by taking the average post count of the ten most active user over the past 21 days and compares that figure to your own post count. simple!



    Points you can earn:
    • Points for infractions - between minus 50 to minus 400 depending on severity.
    • Points for each day online: 2
    • Points for social group members: 5
    • Points for friends: 3
    • Points for messages left on member profile pages: 1.5
    • Points for having album pictures: 3
    • Points for referrals: 25
    • Points for starting thread: 2
    • Points for adding a tag: 0.5
    • Points for replies to own threads: 0.5
    • Points for thread views to your created threads: 0.02
    • Points if your thread becomes a sticky: 50
    • Points for a post: 2
    • Points if your posts gets thanked: 10
    • Points for giving thanks to anothers post: 2
    If you have any questions as to what each of the above mean, post here. Any feedback welcome. think you should get more points for something i've listed above, post here.

    Yup, it appears I am active 100% of the time too, quite good. I understand it all now too. Should be good for the forums, especially when people come for help.

    anouther good thing is the "recent threads" on the main page, it stops a thread being missed out on when there are two highly active threads in the same forum.

    post for update to first post:

    • Points for thread views to your created threads: 0.02
    So if you create a thread and it gets 10,000 views, you'll rack up some points.

    ironic that this would pop up on the radar
    about a week or two ago i found out we had a "points system"
    ive been here a while and never knew it
    bad thing was, whene i found out about it i saw i had -60 points
    realy threw me off as to what i did to violate the game
    just figured it wasent bad enough for me to get banned so it must not have been bad
    We don't ban ppl because they less active member.

    You didn't do anything wrong bro, whenever a post gets deleted that you posted in makes you loose point.
