    There have been lots of questions amongst "contributors" on several threads as to the point and mechanism of points and trophies. Please could you provide a definitive explanation.
    Thank you.

    Yes. I have 2 points. What are they and do points make prizes?

    I presume for the 'likes' you've received.

    I think because of my likes digory. Can't be sure though. NuTES is more confusing than NuLabour.

    You probably have to tag the moderators to ensure that they pick up the query.

    It would appear that the points are linked to the trophies - certain trophies will get you a specific number of points. You get these trophies when you have completed or achieved certain things, as per the list below. When you are awarded a trophy you will get an alert (along with all the hundreds of other alerts you get for when people post on a thread, respond to something said or 'like' your post, depending on how you have set up your alert preferences).


    These trophies are not to be confused with the 'contributor status' which appears under your avatar on the thread, which are merely driven by how many 'likes' you have got, although there is a certain crossover.

    Basically the aim is to get the full 112 points, and whatever the highest form of contributor is deemed to be..... there was a list somewhere but I can't remember how to access it now.

    Despite being a "frequent contributor" :p (get me!) I appear not to have any points. Does this mean that I am missing out on prizes?

    Thanks for that monica, though I'm afraid I just started reading "blah, blah, blah" after the first "trophies", I wonder if I can sell my points or trophies I get any? Maybe they'll send us a sticker or we'll get a sustificut in assembly.

    I keep telling posters that points get exchanged for alcohol on each TES Meet. Why do you think I am amassing them so carefully? :D

    You'd need the mods to attend and foot the bill.

    So, if you can amass points, can you also have them removed if you are norty? A bit like detentions or demerits.

    Will there be a party when we all have enough?

    Does the first person who gets the 'Moderators' Pet' trophy get scragged by the rest of us?
