What is up with the point system? How does it work, what does it indicate?

I see that King Slug and I have the same number of points, despite him having twice the posts I have. I do notice that if you transpose the number of posts I have, we use the same digits.

Just curious.

Ok so some of this is still set as default settings which I haven't played with too much so bear with me as I'm learning this also.

Xenforo has a "user title ladder" similar to what Vbulletin had, but you can make it based on Points instead of on just quantity of messages (i.e. posts)

You can earn Points by earning Trophies, each of which has a varying amount they are worth. I should probably add in some new ones.

You can see how it's setup here for alpinezone and if I add new Trophies (and points), you will see it reflected later.


I'm open to suggestions for what would make good trophies!

Here are some criteria that can be used:

User has created at least X albums:

It looks like we are all sort of stuck at 38 which means we have a baseline level of stuff so clearly this needs some updating :)

I noticed @KustyTheKlown has 48 points! And that he's not just an "active member", he's a "well-known" member!

This is member-shaming at its worst....you'll be hearing from my attorney :ROFLMAO:

I have 48 points as well.

KK and I are living large. What do we win, a medal?

Update: drjeff and thetrailboss also have 48 points us 4 are leading AZ membership by 10 points.

In addition, I am the runaway winner in the reaction category with 51, nobody else is close.

Nice to see my incessant pot stirring has been noticed.
