Many of you may have noticed that you have some participation points. There are two ways currently to gain participation points. When you post a new topic you will gain 2 participation points. If you reply to a topic you will gain 1 participation point. Points will NOT be awarded in the following categories:

Test Forum

We reserve the right to delete new topics and posts if we feel you abusing the system by creating topics or posts that are
  • Useless
  • Not relevent to topic or category
  • Inappropriate

You may award (donate) other users some of your points if you feel they were helpful or gave really good feedback. To award points simply look for the user you wish to donate to and click on the Award button next to their name.

From time to time bonus points may be awarded to individuals who consistently help others and give clear, meaninful feedback/help.

Are there any rewards or anything associated with participation points, or do they just act like 'popularity rating points' or posts?

I don't understand y posting a thread should be two points, it makes no sence, because you would end up having more threads than there are replies,
I think if you had replies be worth more we could get more feed back, isn't that important? on the other hand, people who just care about getting pionts will probabley give you crappy feed back anyways.

Hey, there's a neat idea.. combine the points with an RPG style automated melee attack...

Attempt to rob user.. and let the computer play out an elaborate battle to see if you win or not and get his gold ;)

hehe.

What are points? If I posted top level posts as much as I did replies to posts I'd be like 10 grand or better by now. Oh, well...so much for top level posts....

I'm just here to help. So again I ask...what are points?

Do we get a notification of someone (I guess a mod) awards us bonus points? Since I've never done anything but reply to posts and I haven't been notified of a donation, I'm just curious how my posts/participation ratio isn't 1:1... not that's I'm complaining =]

there is a mod for vBulletin to steal points, but it's a gamble based on your own. So if you have less points, the liklihood of you actually succeeding is lower than if you have as many as the person you are stealing from. Make sense? Anyway, i don't know if there's a phpBB version or not, but it is definitely out there.

That's why I asked, because I never got any sort of notification. I've gotten notifications for other things, but never anything to do with participation point changes. It's not a big deal, I guess. I'm just O/C that way sometimes.

I just donated you 20 points to test it out. See if you get the notification. It should go to the same email address you used to sign up at OZZU.

Yup, it did thanks! you want em back?


I think I may have figured out. I posted to a topic yesterday that was nothing but a silly advertisment (saying as much). It looks like that post was subsequently deleted, which probably dropped my post count, but not the participation.

Makes sense... I get all weirded out when stupid stuff like that doesn't add up =]

What are all the ways you can get points? I thought you can only get it by referring others? I didnt' know you can get points for posting in the forums. Thanks.

As of today, Bigwebmaster removed participation points when he implemented the most current upgrade. Since this is no longer relevent, I've locked the topic.
