I post on message boards from time to time, but it seems that I can't get a lot of points, mostly because whenever I hear a story worth posting about, someone else already has posted it. Any advice on how to get points fast?

They'll come automaticly while contributing to the forum.

Designing posting habbits with a purpouse of gaining points isn't applauded and propably even against the TOC, by definition it would be spamming, since you wouldn't be posting to contribute but to gain points.

heres my thoughts on the matter

as the stories/breaking news is covered at a amazing rate here think of a different angle, where as many are doing the news etc, think about questions that you have and arent already covered

also, you get 250 points if you are appluaded (hmm..forgot how to spell that), if you do a good post. so rather than loads of posts, quality over quantity


well. thats my thoughts anyway

Yep. Just contribute and enjoy discussing, debating and collaborating and you will have a few points in no time.

if you post something which gets a lot of replies you will rake in the points. Look at my points total, would you believe 3-4 days ago that was only 250 points not 2500 plus. All because i posted a thread LOTS of people replied to in a matter of a couple of days...

Who cares?

I myself dont even care about the points its not like you win a free trip or something.

Just post where you feel the need to speak up and the points will take care of themselves

But if you want points REALLY fast, open a thread like "St. Peter was cloned from an alien.":shk:

You have no idea how true this is.

It also helps to have a gov't job with internet access.

See how many replies you just got? Go to ATS and do the same thing. Make sure it's something worthy.

Take a look at the ABOUT ATS: The points system item and its related discussion thread to get a feel for the system, including how they are awarded for each forum.

The members speak the truth. Quality, interesting posts and participation in board projects are the best way to garner points. Avoid behavior that incurs penalties, which range from minimal to quite hefty. The points are always secondary to the discussions and information you find here. That's what is really important. Be patient, post good stuff, and they will add up.

Always be sweet and kind and you will never be fined. Also, I would like to direct you to Collaborative Fiction. Contributions garner 250 points and the more people who contribute the more fun it is.

My personal opinion is that you only need enough points to get access to all the "secret areas" and maybe bump up your upload capacity.

And you got some points just because I replied to your post. You're welcome.
