I'm happy to announce that we now have a system in place that will calculate a users forum contribution level.

The contribution level/points system will is a way of acknowledging users who contribute the most to the forum by allowing them to collect Reward Points which can be redeemed for HWC Swag as well as provide them with extra entries into our contests, thus giving them a better chance of winning.

* As always, any registered member is able to enter the sweepstakes; however, they will only get one entry if they have not contributed to the forum.

Under every forum members name, there is a forum contribution bar which is made up of two parts.

1) The users current contribution level
2) Points needed to move up to the next level

If you click on your forum name, you will be able to see the detailed stats.

  • Days Online (Points that are added for every day since registering) - 0.5
