You must have noticed the point next to member names. This is a humble attempt to reward those who are active on the site. You gain points for the following activities:
• Voting — 1 point
•• Commenting — 2 points
••• Creating a forum topic — 3 points
The points were added to your account retroactively, so all your past participation is correctly noted to the last point. In the future we have plans to introduce more features that are related to points.
In order to prevent gaming the system, it's literally pointless to spam with comments or forum topics to gain points, because deleted content will delete the points too.
Let me know your ideas on the next steps! ( and gain 2 points ;)
