The forums feature a points system to recognize contributors. If you read a post that you find helpful, place your cursor over the rating stars box at the top right of the post, and then click and drag your mouse until the proper number of stars are lit.
By rating a post, you will earn points for the poster and points for yourself. Member points are accumulated as follows:
- 1 point for each post a user creates
- 1 point for each unique user that replies to a post
- 10 points for each rating star awarded to a post
- 10 points for having one of your posts marked as a Favorite by other users
- 25 points for being selected as a Favorite User (Friend) by other users
- 1 point for rating other users' posts
Note: You must be signed into the forums to rate posts.
