How are these points accumulated and what purpose do they serve?
I believe they are towards the Gold Plated, Diamond Encrusted, No Prize.
That is very funny, but keep your day job. Can you answer my question or do you know? Thanks in advance if you can and do answer the questions.
Bib, as far as I know, the points are a xenforo feature that is at the moment otherwise non-functional. Hence my reference to the old (late 60s) Marvel Comics No Prize (what do you expect on a Sunday morning). We'll need to see what Santha says.
What part of his response did you not understand?
Yeup, a No Prize means that for the moment they serve no practical purpose that I know of. However, I have asked Santha the Webmaster.
Well ya know, we do get to lay claim to a bunch of points. So..................there is always that!
Thanks. I was just curious about their purpose.
Been wondering this myself, but just never asked! Thanks!
I am going to try to break this down into two questions.
1) what is the use of the points on a forum?
Adding to what squire said.
Points are rewarded to responses which added value to the responses and peope thought it was helpful.
Again we know that some of us misuse the negative ratings, that was one of the reasons we disabled negative ratings couple months back
2) How is baptistboard using it or can use it in the near future?
All said and done, the truth always shines.
For new visitors/members of the site.
The points show the credibility of their past interactions and responses.
1) To make it more clear to new members we can have points driven titles.
2)We can make baptist board hats,mini awards or other cool merchandise and can award it to that month's or quarter's most active member or so.
This will be based upon points accumulated and other vital stats only for that time period.
3) Open to other suggestions of how we could use it in the near future.
First, start awarding No Prizes:
The Brass No Prize
The Silver Plated No Prize
The Solid Sterling Silver No Prize
The 24 Karat Gold Plated No Prize
The 24 Karat Solid Gold No Prize
Then the 24KSG with Emeralds
Then with Emeralds and Diamonds
You get the idea. Given with grateful thanks to Marvel Comics.
Rewards for the most positive posts with solid content.
But how many points qualify for each level?
I have 63 points, does that even qualify me for the first level?
Also, how many points does it take to qualify my wife and I for a trip to Hawaii?
That's up to Santha.
63 points qualifies for a 3 day 2 night trip to Bahamas!
We can collectively decide that as a board along with the admin council.
Wait, wait! We are ready for the Bahamas!
Hank...you just missed a 3 day & two night stay in beautiful downtown Newark NJ. Bring your handgun
I'll bring the mace as well.
