    I believe that when you get 100 points the Admin sends you a Wal-Mart Gift Card.

    Ken's right. I spent my first $100 on groceries at walmart. I have another 113 points now, just waiting for my next gift card.;)

    Hey, don't be starting rumors that I can't afford.

    Points, or trophies, are not something that I have set up to any degree here yet, so what we have is the default that comes with the installation of the software. Points can be used in several ways, including prizes, if that were something that I could afford, but they can also be used to allow extra privileges, such as being able to edit your posts for a longer period of time, or being able to delete them, the idea being that these forum members are less likely to go off the deep end and cause damage to the forum, such as deleting all their posts or editing out the content, making the thread pointless.

    They can also be used to grant access to additional sections of the forum, which I might do at some point, once the forum becomes more established. However, any section of the forum that requires special access would not be accessible to search engine spiders, and so would not add to the forum's search engine optimization. Large, very busy, forums can afford to do that, but beginning ones can't.

    The current points system can be found here, but I can add to that, and probably will once I find the time.

    Well now how'd you find that, @Terry Page ?! All that's visible to me is "joined", "messages", and "likes received." hmmm.... in any case, five BILLION?! *Billion?!* Where's the fairness in this, I ask?! :rolleyes:

    I see that I have 113. Is that enough to get me a pair of high speed roller skates?

    Probably not, @Shirley Martin ... according to @Terry Page 's explanation for what *I* want, you'll probably have to keep saving your points for about 185 more years for those skates. Sorry! I'm only having to save until the year 3016. ;) Maybe I should water down my transportation choices?

    Getting points playing games is easy, Shirley. Points should only count for long well thought out intellectual posts like mine are. :)

    Just kidding, before games were taken out of the daily feed, I played them a lot. Now I always forget about them.

    I know that! Maybe I'll take a peek to see the funny stuff.

    This forum is getting quite busy, I'm on here hours just going through posts.

    As Martha would say, "it's a good thing".

    I didn't get my Lamborghini yet either, @Ken N Louis . Maybe they should just bring S&H Green Stamps back, eh? :) I could start saving them like I used to.... now there's a thought! :)
