    Haven't got a clue, was hoping it was some sort of loyalty award, 10 points and you win a day off.

    @TES_Pippa ? Any information on:

    • How one wins points?
    • What you do with them? I was hoping that they would add to Avios or at least to nectar.

    I seem to have a "like" that attracted two "points", but I'm not sure if other things can attract "points" too.

    My guess would be that they will be used to rank contributors in order of "authority", but unless there's another way to accrue "points", they could just use "likes" instead.

    I did get a message on my profile somewhere saying I was a valued contributor. What is that all about?

    Yes - I got one of those, too, but it came at the same time as the "like". Are they linked?

    @TheoGriff I'll ask Rosaline to clear up how points are allocated and how many you get.... for now I'm afraid you'll have to enjoy the mystery ;)

    ok just reached a hundred posts and got awarded something called a trophy. I then had 10 points added, now whilst I dont claim to an expert in the detective game, I have a feeling it relates to the number of posts....you with me still

    On a related note, do you think that they'll update the number of posts? It looks a bit strange that my profile says that I've been a member since 2006 but I'm a "new contributor". There are links to a lot of the old posts, so it wouldn't be difficult to count them.

    Yes i been on for ages as I was looking for resources, never knew about the forums, but still getting points is exciting.

    I have no idea what the points do (if anything) but the trophies etc are explained here
    There being little point in actively contributing at this time due to ongoing pre-moderation I have read most of the stuff I can find that explains how the site works

    Aha - I just managed to click on something to see a breakdown. I've now got 7 points - 2 for getting a "like" and 5 for reaching 30 posts.

    Yes it is rather fun clicking on things and trying to work what everything means. I got a trophy for being an appreciated contributor. Thanks for my trophy tes.

    I have just received a trophy too and I have 12 points but no prizes! I still don't have the signature link though. Do you have to earn it? :rolleyes:

    What is the signature link?

    If you click on your small avatar in the top right hand corner there is a drop down menu. On some people's there is a link called signature. You can put some text in it and it appears at the bottom of all of your posts. I think you might have to earn it as I don't have one. I can't be sure though!
