That's it really- just logged on and I have no idea what thy are about but I have some.
No one really knows - mine are propping up my wonky table.
May I also ask why some posters including me have a green dot next to their picture?
It means you are online - but if you want to hide, you can change your settings. Go to 'Privacy'
Points? - They mean prizes!!
A trick to make you believe you are a good (nice beige) poster.
They allow you, in a very short time, to gain meaningless "awards" which indicate, often erroneously, that you may be a poster whose contributions may be worth reading.
Partly a popularity contest they bear no relation to either quality or accuracy of content
Points are a benchmark against which to record your progress. At your half-yearly review (What? You didn't read the small print when you registered?) the Moderators will set you improvement targets based on your current points total. If you're not already a Prominent contributor you will be deemed 'In need of improvement' and labelled as such beneath your avatar. Your posts will then be subject to close scrutiny, and the Moderators will turn up at short notice to observe and monitor your paperwork.
To incentivise you, 500 points are worth £2.50 at your local branch of Sainsburys, although they can't be redeemed against fuel.
Well, thanks everyone.
I started to giggle and ended up roaring with laughter- Thanks!! A feeling of euphoria from hyperventilating has it's good points!
Points are pointless...
And really they aren't points, but stages. I've got 77... had 77 for ages. Not sure how to get 78 [don't actually care] and not sure how to get to the great heights of 112.
Are they not the things you get on railway lines........no
Not sure. I seem to have got 25 very quickly but have been stuck at 25 ever since!
Have you swiped your Nectar Card?
