You can join Twitter on ATS and get 5,000 points.

You can do articles and artwork for tinWiki and get up to 10,000 points per article and points per piece of artwork.

Plus, different forums have different point amounts for posts and responses.

You shouldn't worry about points, though. Its the quality of your contributions that count, not the quantity of your points.

Don't worry about it, just enjoy the ride. If you become a point whore, you will miss the incredible sharing opportunity that ATS provides. If you start worrying about points, you will be posting bogus material, or repeating existing topics, and then we all suffer. As great as the moderators are, they often fail to eliminate these repetitive posts.

It's a lot better to have high quality than quantity (caused by point whores).

I agree with the above posters.

However, it does help to start a thread that everybody would be interested in, as you will get S&F'd up the A

I stand in the top left hand side of page with a sign around my neck and tapdance..

"Will sell body for ATS points"

I got -3 that way..


Being rewarded by quality contributions(APPLAUSES) gets you up there pretty quickly.
Quality counts as JS said.


AVATARS are free,backgrounds etc cost tho.

Here's a thread, though a bit dated...All about points.

I got most of mine through podcasting a few years back.

Hope this helps,

Don't let these people lead you astray....."points" come in bunches....(kinda' like grapes.......or elephants).....anyway, the single largest point "payoff" occurs when you manage to work the word "polecat" into a post. Sonofagun!! I just did.....woo hoooo!!

I originally signed up for this site to get enough points to access RATS but after some problems with putting up a custom background I lost my points for nothing and realized that the points system is a joke.

You can join Twitter, tell a mod that you joined, and then you will be rewarded 5000 points and have your "ticket" to Really Above Top Secret.

Still sort of new here and just noticed the "points"


Will poledance for points???

Is it okay just to enjoy the ride and not be concerned if I'm racking 'em up or will that be held against me?

I find that praying to the Flying Spaghetti Monster always results in a point boost.

May you, too, be touched by His noodly appendage.

Ramen.

Getting an applause is good for points - but quality is the key.

I'm a points tart, but my applauses mean more to me than all the points.

A good piece of writing, a well thought out thread or post and a really well reasoned response will usually garner some appreciation.

That's the measure - post to applause ratio

I always wish we could bet or trade them.
I think it is a shame we can't post predictions and put the bets in a pool.
