He may very possibly have won them.
Some threads offer a nice bi bonus of 15,000 or more..
Competitions run occasionaly.
One on now for valentines avatar i believe.
Well, it does not even list the threads started even though it says 4. AS for posts, there are 950. I went through page 1 and saw nothing
spectacular in the way of a competition or news article or anything.
It is strange and I am not trying to single this person out either. It is an ATS problem, not a members problem. I have noticed it quite a few
times, but wished there were a way to catalogue these instances to see what causes it.
If it is some cumulative type error, someone could easily rake up massive amounts of points unduly. I think the points system is a great way to
quickly measure the quality and quantity of a members posts, but if it is corrupted/corruptible then it is a meaningless tool.
EDIT: the only other thing I can think of that would give you all these extra points for normal posting is if you get points for replies within any
thread (not necessarily one you created) and the tally does not show below your avatar. Is this the case?
