Our site uses a trophy system that good members with trophy points, achieved by accomplishing any of the following. As you add trophies, you'll add points.

  • First Message: Points 1
  • Some likes one of your posts: Points: 2
  • 30 posts: Points 5
  • 100 posts: 10 points
  • You posts have been liked 25 times: 10 points
  • Content you have posted has attracted 100 likes: 15 points
  • 1000 posts: 20 points
  • Content you have posted has attracted 250 likes: 20
  • Content you have posted has attracted 500 likes. 30

Different point levels have been set for members to reach user titles. Your current contributions will count towards the new trophy system. For example, if you have 100 posts, you'll automatically receive a trophy worth 10 points.

The user titles will be tweaked to go along with the new system. Simply achieving 1000 posts will no longer guarantee the lofty 'Genius' user title. Those of you with great content contributions will find yourselves gaining points relatively fast by attaining likes.

It's going to take a bit to feel as comfortable as I did with the old site, but I think this one is awesome. Way to go Chris. I appreciate your hard work to make this a fantastic place.
Absolutely! Thanks Chris! ;)

Just out of curiosity, are we limited to five "likes" a day like we were with the older "Thanks" system?
