Dunno- but overnight i lost 99 pts, but still have the same rank...not that I really care about the whole points game.
I lost a lot more than 99, more like 500 or so....
Can I respectfully suggest that you all wait until
1. New points system is fully up & running.
2. See if your overall rank has changed.
3. Get on with talking TV and P2P, torrents etc.,
In my opinion this site is not for an egotrip
I have to say I have also lost loads of points, but I will get them back soon. I was a little shocked to see them go, But as the man said, lets get back to the talking about TV shows. I'm about to watch eureka and cant wait.
the main reason for the point loss is switching from getting points for each comment to only getting points for good votes on your comments.
I would have waited longer for more users to rate comments before switching over but I noticed more users starting to abuse the comments for points again.
you could end up with more points if enough users like your comments
didn't mean to course a stir about my question,i just thought it was a valid one.
i apologise if i have.
it's just that the points you gain,shows you are paticipateing in the site.
oh and btw "mustapha" i didnt like the refference to "ego trip"
I Don't think he was insinuating that anyone here was on an ego trip. I understood it to mean that we are all here to share and talk TV and the points are really a secondary thing. I agree with that but it is only my opinion.
There are a number of people who are making a great contribution to this site (and a few who are abusing the system to gain points). I think we should keep in mind, in order to make certain contributions, one has to acheive enough points (adding show descriptions, for example). Most of the character pictures (and, yes, some could use an overhaul), show title pictures, and show descriptions are here because users care about this site and want it to look great!
i know that im a new person here and i really dont count but i thought it was all about the shows and the points really dont make a bit a differance....we are here cuz we like TV!!
