Negative points happen because a member purchases something at the ATS Store, like 'Custom mini-profile background image' for 2500 points, and they
use combined points to pay for it.
And the bar at the bottom reflects how many posts the member has made.
For members, it starts out as grey, if you get an 'Applause' by ATS staff, it changes - the more 'Applause's you recieve, the redder it gets.
ATS staff have a solid orange bar.
Note - An 'Applause' is given by ATS staff (moderators, council members, and forum subject matter experts), in acknowledgement of a quality post
that merits special recognition. Plus a member recieves 250 point bonus, as well.
Just a brief description of both.
