    Let's discuss points here. Please find the picture of some scales on the top right corner of your post. This is where you can give your members/smoker friends some points for helping you with problems or to give a pat on the back for a well built smoker or idea.
    GIVE IT A TRY! CLICK on the SCALE and give a POINT or TWO! Fill in the blank area (reason) so the person receiving the points will know who and why the points were given. PLEASE INCLUDE YOUR NAME!

    When giving points , please include your user name where you type the kudos . That's the only way someone knows who gave them points , makes it easier to send a thank you note [​IMG]

    It is just points, Even if you just welcome or comment on someones post, you get a point for every 100 replies, thank you's, posts or threads. I used to have 25 I think. It really don't bother me much.

    Lost most of my points too. Even though I am a newbie, had some pretty good points. Kind of bites, but oh well

    Yeah, I lost, I think 5 points or so and about 150 posts. But, I can always post the good smokes again. If I get points -- great, if I don't -- that's fine too. I'm not going to worry about it much.

    I think the points totals are somewhat useful to the new folks. Gives them something to judge the credibility of the advice by. Now I guess they'll just have to take my word for it. [​IMG]

    I lost over 1200 posts and at least 18 rep points but so what the site is back up and thats whats important to me. If I had my choice of what I could get back it would be my PM history and the recipes I had there

    Thats the problem, people see these green bars and think they're something special when in fact, some people are just blow hards! [​IMG]

    Yeah, over time you kind of get a feel for when the advice is good and when the advice is
    Hard for the new people to spot though unless someone politely points it out to them.

    One thread that I would like to see here again even if it has to be restarted is bbally's low 'n slow food safety discussion. There was some very valuable information in that.

    Hopefully he will post it again.

    On edit: Oops. Should have looked first. It is still here.[​IMG]
