    How do points work, exactly? Are they effected soully by number of posts? *Doubts this* or are they also changed by peoples opinions on you?

    I'm not exactly sure how the point scale works. But you get points for posts, points for starting threads and good reputation points. You can use those points in the store for things such as bold or glowing usernames, e.t.c.

    It's just something to make the forum fun. :)

    edit: I gave you reputation (for posting in the corect spot and saving mods work) and you get 10 points for that. The person giving reputation doesn't get any points.

    The thief item is for stealing points from another member. :devilspin

    I'd recommend banking your points whenever possible to avoid them getting stolen.

    You earn interest and it should keep them from getting stolen.

    No, I think it's a banking thing. Somehow I deposted the same amount twice. So it made me go into a negative balance. s'ok. I don't plan on buying stuff. :)

    Boom, have you by any chance changed the setup of the point system? The thing is, every time I post, I lose 10-40 points. Not that it is a problem to me, I have enough points in the bank to last but if it's a bug I though you'd like to know. If not, I'd like to know as well.

    Edit: It seems that this is only reproducable in the :spam: forum. I think it's clear to me now...

    You only lose points in the spam area. :) Why is that? Why should I allow people to change usernames and other great things without posting great posts? The main reason is that useless spam thread where nothing makes sense and its only jibberish.

    That's OK Boom. Spam was abused for getting points anyway. Thanks for the info.

    When you give reputation points, does the person giving the rep lose any points? I just want to make that clear. I'm trying to save up my points right now, and I'd like to give rep points, but not if I'm going to lose any.

    No, you won't lose any points. If you give somebody good reputation they receive 20 points and nothing happens to yours. And if somebody gives you bad reputation, I think you get one point.
