Now I've fixed and reset the points system the following apply:
1 point for every post
2 points for every like you receive
2 points for every new thread
2 points for every gallery image (not attachment).
As such, it's incentive time...
- Anyone who gets to 5 thousand points will be automatically upgraded to Bronze Supporter membership - but 100 or your points will need to come from likes (50 likes). (many of you already have this upgrade)
- Anyone who gets to 10 thousand points will be automatically upgraded to Silver Supporter membership - but 200 of your points need to come from likes (100 likes).
- Anyone who gets to 20 thousand points will automatically be upgraded to Gold Supporter membership - but 400 of those points will need to come from likes (200 likes).
It just means getting on here and taking part - and it's more doable than you might imagine.
N.B. To stop rule breaking, if anyone floods the forum or gallery with shite I'll simply delete it and reduce your privileges to noobie again.
Also, because of the requirement for "likes", older members with huge of post counts will potentially need to come back and partake to get their likes up.
The "likes" were reset during the migration to new software so we've started counting these again.
You can also subscribe to one of the upgrade options. Read about the new subscription options here.
