Hi All,

Where do I get information on the point system. The reason for me asking this question, is because at times when I read a post of a member I see a negative value on the points scored. For example PTS: -372. What does that mean.

Also there is a bar at the bottom of the points scored. What does that stand for and why does it change color. Is it because of the points scored.

Not that point is that important, but just wanted to satisfy my curiosity.

Thankyou

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.

Thankyou guys for your generous help.

I will give this a try. I know about applause as I have had a few and hence the rise in the points, but I just could not get around the negative point.

Also I did not know how others could get the image on the left hand side panel under their name. But I think Ill investigate more.

Thankyou again for the initial start.

No knowledge23, no cost.

Avatars are free to put up. Just make sure they are inline with the Avatar and Signature Guidelines in both size and content.
