My question is on post points.  It doesn't matter if i'm long winded or short winded in posts I always get 5 points while others are getting 20... why?  or how come I only get 5 not that I even no what the post points are for?

Hi Is,

I'm trying an experiment here.  I heard something about post points being the number of times people clicked on your post to "quick reply" or "reply."  So, I clicked on "reply" for this answer.  Let's see if it increases your points from where it was when I started this reply.  It was at 5 points. 

I don't think the post points have any actual value except maybe to put you in the top 10 posters or something like that.

Okay.  Just after I quoted your post and used the reply button, your points on your original post in this thread went from 5 points to 20 points!  I quoted you and clicked reply in this post too.

Second "reply" with a quote went to 35 points.

This time I just clicked "quick reply" without a quote.

Okay, IS.  I proved my theory.  Now you're at 50 points.  It went from 5 to 20 to 35 to 50.

You get five points for each post and 15 points whenever someone clicks on your post to reply.

You don't get points if you reply to your own post.

This is pretty funny. I don't think anyone knows what the points are used for either.

We once started a rumor that at the 10,000 post level, the member would receive a long-arm quilting machine.  I think Gini & Nana have been waiting for theirs for a long time now!  LOL

When we first started Jodie Davis used to chat with us. I think she had plans for the points but it never happened. There was discussion about whether the point would be taken away after prizes were given or if they would continue to accumulate to reach new milestones.

Your points are under your photo.  They aren't worth anything though.  Like monopoly money with no place to spend it!

It sure would be something if we won something.

Thanks I'm getting the idea on points.
