    Look right below every post to the right and you will see a "Thumbs Up" icon. Anyone can click on that and it will give you a point, also they can write a comment about why they gave you a point. You can not have points taken away. Most of us don't put much stock in these points because they really aren't a good indication of anything. I have a lot of points but most of them are from people who I said Hi to in Roll Call, why they give me points for saying Hi I don't know!

  5. Also, I've given points to "bookmark" recipes and helpful information I've run across. Because under your profile page you can look up who you've given points to, very handy IMO.

    There was a slightly different "point" system before the Great Crash of (whatever year).  I had 3 which made me feel good about contributing to this forum.  Then I read that some of posts from some of the old timers, basically one who was verbose, that were here.  They accused the newer people of cheating/hacking the point system, since they had been here forever and accumulated not many points.

    Politics and BBQ ... guess they don't mix either.
