I read through the help and did not figure this out.

I don't think I ever posted there, yet my points are negative. Accept token point pentalties how do you get negative points anyway?

How can I find out when and why this happened?

I know it doesn't matter really, but I am curious if it means something I should know.

There is no message in my U2U

Thank you for your time.

Even so, at some point you or someone else will want an answer to this. It happens when you make purchases at the ATS store, such as background, or RATS access. Often you will have a lot of points in one area, but only a few in BTS.

The "cost" of purchasing is deducted from the total points, and so some is taken from BTS, which can leave a negative balance in that one area.

It confused me when I first noticed it, so your reaction is natural.

Well I have negative 5000 and some BTS points and after inquiring it seems I made some purchases at the store using combined points instead of the points I have the most of, which in my case is ATS points.

I never was any good at math or managing money, even imaginary money.

If you really sit down and think about it, all money is imaginary. But don't think too much about it...

I think there's an ATS "twilight zone" that points disappear into. Probably a first cousin to the sock-eating dryer god.

I once logged on one day and over a hundred BTS points had magically disappeared. I hadn't bought anything at the ATS store, hadn't gotten scolded online for anything. Not sure where they went (from whence they came, no dout) or why they went but I'm happy to report that I didn't shed even one tear. I wondered for a while if there was some silent rebuke implied in those missing points-sort of like an Amish shunning, ATS style but it turns out the whole matter wasn't worth pursuing.

The sun'll come up tomorrow. Bet your bottom dollar......(or your last BTS points :lol

Very new to ATS. What are the most desirable purchases to be made?
Thank you

And after that last line of your post, I feel like singing "Tomorrow" from Annie.



So it's almost a one liner, I couldn't help myself.

And lets not forget the pencil bandit.


What I want to know is how to get out of the negative. It looks way too much like my real bank book.
