We are in the process of moving back to ranks vs a point system. From the beginning, I could not find anything useful with the point system. It didnt make a lot of sense to me.
Almost all other forum sites go by ranks. It still means the number of post a person makes.
People generally start off as a "Newbie" and work they way up.
Everything then is based on the number of posts a person makes. So in theory its not that different from points, but instead of seeing points, you would see the rank of that member.
I have witnessed too many competitive members here that wanted to see their points higher than someone elses.
I am not into that scenario... I am more into what a person says. If a person who may have 5,000,000 points or have enough points to make them Spine-Admirals does not make any sense, I will not listen. On the other side, if a person has only 3 points but knows what they are talking about and tells it like it us, that is the person I will listen to.
I am not sure when this change will take place, but I just wanted everyone to know that it will be coming
