So I've received a fair few of these if I remember correctly, but I'm not sure what they do, where I can see them on my profile. ?

Click "Profile" on the ribbon at the bottom of the screen, let your profile load, scroll down a bit, while watching the left side of the screen - and look for the line that says "applauses". That will tell you how many you've gotten.

Below your avatar on the right... see p:537... that's your points..

But looking at your points I would say you haven't had many applause yet.... unless there is a problem of some sort.

peace,

Korg.

The "P" in the mini-profile is how many posts a person has made.

P = Posts, not points.


Edit: @Heff. Your urge to always be first is getting a bit much...

Yes, what do the points do? Not that it matters much as I seem to gain them, then lose them due to a string of off topic posts


Can you end up with a negative balance?

28 applauds - you are doing something right.


( I am saving my points to purchase an ATS Corvette ! )

The points as far as I can gather work in paralel to the elite bankers of the world and he/she who gathers the most points and applauds will be the long awaited Anti-christ who will force all others to bow down too and applaud the evil ones avatar.

Careful Heff your giving them a good/bad? run for their money errr... for their points.

This is the only reason for my poor posting,but I`m watching you all very carefully.

(note to self, Gemwolf sounds jealous of Heffs apparent quicker fingers and "destination now" sounds happy to be out of the running)

Yes, my goal is to obliterate every point I get, without actually getting banned

Good thread, but a question as well. I don't think we should be posting content of U2U's unless we have permission from the sender. I don't know if that's a rule, but maybe it should be if it isn't. Thanks.

Yeah, I agree. I too never do that unless I have the sender's permission.

Points used to have a specific purpose.

They were used to customize your mini-profile. Putting up an avatar was free, however pretty much everything else cost points. The 2 lines of user title under your name, the text color, the background color/design etc.

Those are now free as of the ATS 2010 redesign. At this point in time they kind of just exist... similar to status points on other forums... you can increase them by posting quality stuff.

As far as the other question goes, yes it is certainly possible to have negative points. Various warnings deduct points and if your balance does not cover that you'll go into the negative. Sometimes that happens to a new member who hasn't quite gotten the hang of the ATS way but comes around sooner or later and a staff member can fix that. Other times it's someone who just keeps racking up the warns... which at some point probably won't end well.

Hope that helps clarify a bit.
