OK, look I'm starting to get mad because people are just rackin' up member points by posting "?" or "Hun? Idk" on forums. They annoy me because all I get on my forum now is "ok" or "IDK". Chess.com really should make a rule saying if your answer is just to get member points/ to annoy the person you will lose a specific amount of points. Ok, I had another idea: Here it is:
What is the point of member points. There is no point of getting them. So, we should have a rewards system something like this:
1000 Member Points 1 day of free Gold Membership
2000 Member Points 1 day of free Platinum Membership
3000 Member Points 1 day of free Diamond Membership
4000 Member Points 1 week of free Gold Membership
5000 Member Points 1 week of free Platinum Membership
6000 Member Points 1 week of free Diamond Membership
And So on...
Ok, I also had another idea: Here it is:
We should have levels from member points, right?
1000 Member Points Level 1
2000 Member Points Level 2
3000 Member Points Level 3
4000 Member Points Level 4
5000 Member Points Level 5
6000 Member Points Level 6
So those are my ideas.
I can give you something more informative than "idk" or "ok", but you aren't going to like it.
Member points are meaningless, and rightly so.
is that all you had to say rooperi ?
So says the sub-10,000.
Well, people complain about all sorts of things on this site, but I've never seen anyone post and say: Hey, I made a post but I didn't get any points. Even the trolls don't care....
Brilliant; You've just discovered a new and relatively creative trolling angle.
Yeah! You tell 'em Spike! (buddy ole pal)
wait, would that post have been considered cheating to get member points?
Or if the Alzheimer's site has REmember points.
So, in summary, the answer to your post title is "no they are not."
Well, member points aren't very important or anything, and it would be tedious to track things like that, so I don't like the idea (even if they did matter, 100 point intervals are far too small). It'd probably incite more trolling.
I think it's a great idea!
I think saying people abuse the points to obtain more AND offer reward for having points in the same forum is interesting =).
I don't think moderating the forums to that extent would be economically possible for chess.com which is why they should remain really just for bragging rights. IMO
no im makin a point
Exactly, and that's all you're doing!
I think we should be able to spend points to unblock ourselves from a member. That way I could tell rich in his notes to cut his damn hippie hair. What are ya? A girl?
