Thumbs down Posts of relevance & substance or flood the joint with irrelevant 'chatter'

This is definitely a 'kiddies thing' .... promoting "how important am I?" that creates a competition out of posting and promoting the idea that posting - irrelevant of substance - will create a 'better' community. Sorry, but I don't think so.

Well, you'll have "post-boosting" in most forums anyway. But if you have a look at the ranking, you'll see that most of the higher ranking people are positive contributors.

Wow - it has been a while since I last logged in, and there have been many changes!

It seems that I don't have any points for being a member for a few months, or for my sticky post in the OC forum.

Do I have to register somewhere else on the HWC site to be credited for these?

Well i like the point system as well
I am a new member but i don't really care if i get the points or not to be honest that said!
I love to ask alot of noobs /,s and that would give me points even tho i don,t really add to the knowledge or help others per say !

But i don't do it for the points lol
But i will say i support this community 100 percent by buying systems and used items other sell, Here first:)
