To the administrators,
I'm just a humble member grateful to have found ATS. During my so far 7 weeks stay, I have, as a mature senior, learned to accept things as they are.
Which not nessacarily means I agree.
Before I go on to address the issue on my mind, let me express my gratitude for the frequent applauses I've recieved.
What's on my mind is the updating of points gained for contributions to ATSNN. They don't seem, like they do on any other thread, to update
Almost every time I've made a contribution to ATSNN, I've had to go through the humiliation - as it is to me - of complaining about the missing
points. When there's no reaction to me hitting the complain buttom, it becomes downright frustrating.
I've spend all morning studying threads about points and learned a few things, and yes, some might call me a point whore. Fine with me. I now got a
more clear view on the system. Let me just point out an inconsistency: The "submit news" instructions says: you'll get 750 points for posts
upgraded to ATSNN
, but now I read in Simon Gray's updated "The points system" that an accepted submission earns 250 ATS points
That's what I've been getting, so why it says 750 in the instructions?
Yeah, "been getting", cause now I'm stuck again in the limbo of no respons to my complains.
I have to ask Simon to hit that magic "fix point" buttom, cause my last 2 submissions upgraded hasn't recieved their promised points.
I fully agree with Simon "The intent of the points system on our forums is to provide a more meaningful measure of your contribution to the community
than simple post-count." Then others can call it whatever they like.
To 2 upgraded submissions in question are:
