On a semi related note I wonder how many old regs that buggered off come on every once in a while, take one look at all us sad bastards and piss right back off again.

Also for my tenure and the fact I almost always check this abandoned sausagefest my "points" count is surprisingly low.

On an unrelated note, I just went back and read posts from my first account, ten years ago.  To anyone who was around then, I'm terribly sorry.

I have a depressingly low score for the amount of time I have spent here.

The mods lower your count when you're blacked out. Wink

If you look at your profile it lists points and posts.  But the numbers are usually different...

I think the "thanks" button has something to do with points vs posts discrepancies.

I have just noticed the "thanks" option. I'm running behind.

My points got reset when Choop banned me and returned my post count to either 0 or negative. No regrets.

My guess is that it's a method to allow forums to allow the most useful posters to gain points towards membership levels without relying solely on post counts. Someone may be really helpful, but not post a lot, whereas you may have less helpful people who post all the time and they'd get to the next level before the more helpful person without the "thanks" system.

This is the first time I've checked back here in a while, I guess they added stuff, haha. 

I know my post count went low from back when God put me in the negatives (still cant remember why).
