If you want to earn points then write thought provoking articles or bring current events to the forum.
Up the following:
Those numbers need to go up and writing articles helps. Especially since if admins applaud your effort for 500 points each. Note my flags, stars and
applause for my post count.
Not everyone is a writer. Not all of us scour the net for the "gossipiest of gossip"/"truth with a hint of drama" and thus not all of us will get
the results of posting a great thread. I see people make some brilliant threads that go hardly noticed while the ones that prey on the imaginations
and gullibility of some, gain enormous amounts of points.
It's a bit strange, to have a quadrant of the forums off limits unless you have a certain amount of points, when it's most likely those who do
elicit emotive responses knowing they will get results, get in after 2 months being here.
Which I will now NOT comment on the new club in town, cough250cough..
Some of us have only the points made by contributing subtle opinions in certain threads over a long time. And those are hard earned, imo.
Perhaps we are not of the quality required to deserve such treats, but then I feel that creates a caste system rather than an online community. My
opinion only, I insist.
It has miffed me in the past that the obvious charlatans can outweigh the honest commenter.
But points are not what I peruse ATS for. It would be nice to sneak under the door of RATS though, see what the buggers are up to in there...
