blackfirestorm666 for point president! Very impressive!!
when a player "claims a draw" does that player only get the points? or do both players? ..is there any advantage for the person who does the actual "claim draw" action?

It depends mostly on ratings difference. If one person has a highe rrating than the other then yes there are a few points lost to the higher rated player
some are worth more than others. the kinds of contributions that are more meaningful (articles, etc) are worth more.
at 1,000 points i get you a free t-shirt (as long as they are not achieved through spammy methods)
UPDATE => Nov 11 2008 - we do NOT give out free shirts anymore (we did this for a few weeks and stopped in 2007).
Harder to monitor if people are spamming when there are more members!
Can anyone post a breakdown of points per chess.com submission? Thanks!
1 post in a forum = 1 point
How do I get points...I call Erik's home phone number, and here it is:
