I have over 22,000. Beat that! :) *Takes deep, deep breath* Points are primarily used in the forum store which allows you to buy some nifty things. Take a look here There are a couple of ways to get points. 1. Posting Each post you make gives you one point, every new thread is worth ten. For each view to your threads you get .1 points. 2. Stealing In the store you can attempt to steal points from other users. Your chance of successfully stealing depends on who has the most points out of the two people. The defender is slightly more likely to prevent your theft with the new modifications to the system. If you fail you lose the points you tried to take from them along with losing 50 karma points. 3. Donations Every so often you meet a really nice person who will donate points to you. These people are very kind because not only do they lose the donated points, they also are taxed 2% of the total cost. Oh, they also pay a base sum to donate in the first place. 4. Interest Leave your money in the bank long enough and you will begin to collect 10% interest. 5. Referals Refer to someone to this site and you will recieve three hundred points. Note, they must register and enter your forum name into the referer box. 6. Karma For every point of karma you recieve, you get five store points. For example, if someone was able to give you 500 karma (Admins), you would recieve 2500 store points. 7. Arcade Game Tournaments Every so often there is going to be arcade tournaments where winners can win points. See the sticky in general discussion for more information. Discounts Discounts are given to users for store items. There are a few ways to recieve discounts. The first is to have been registered for one year. For every year you have been on the forums you get 10% off. Being 21 years of age also gives you a discount. Finally, being an advanced member gives you an additional 10% off. Taxes Taxes are applied just like discounts. You can be taxed if you recieved a warning about an avatar or signature. Remember, the signature size limit is now 600x100 pixels. Avatar size is the same 100x100 pixels. You will notice that options in the store say "Out of stock". This simply means you don't have enough points to buy that option. Points must be in your "hand" when buying things from the store, they cannot be in the bank. Did I miss a question you might have had?
