    Question Forum Upgrades

    Just off the top of my head, How do we earn points on the new system. I notice I have points for different things but no idea how they are earned. Also, what are the points good for? If we get a few thousand can we spend them somewhere? Discounts at Flight1 maybe...?

    Sorry it's taken so long to answer your question..... My head has been stuck inside of this upgrade, finally getting out for air

    The orange bar is the important one. Total points earned, based on different criteria set of your participation. Just coming onto the site, viewing threads, gives you points. The points are in larger numbers per occurrence when you respond in a thread and even higher if you start a post.

    I'll eventually post a list of items and how it works. It's kinda fun and a nice way of tracking of who the contributors are

    Forgot to mention, this process is part of the vBExperience this is at the bottom left side of the menu bar.
