    Maybe you can get points by

    doing well on the arcade or something .. I don't know ... I'm happy with my 6000+ points anyways

    As I am

    writing this, you are number 1 in the points dept ... cheers

    I thought you

    could only play in the arcade if you had some posts, and hence points, under you belt.

    Just thought of something ..

    there used to be someone named *DO NOT DELETE* who had several thousand points and now that person isn't on the

    charts at all .... possibly a new username and a transfer of points? Just a thought ....

    I don't get the points stuff. There

    are some people with very few posts with seemingly way too many points (even if they started threads).

    But

    maybe that is just the way it is.

    There are a few ways you could get

    points without ever having posted.
    Donation
    Referring a new user
    Reputation points (you get quite a few

    store points every time someone good reps you)
    Arcade jackpot

    What happened to Don't Delete... and other

    banned users' points is no mystery. On the advice of one of the mods, I deleted all their points. They were just

    taking up space on the leader board.

    Other than Lifetransport, nothing surprises me. If you start a bunch of

    popular threads in the Pheromone Discussion or Research sections, you can retire and move to Tahiti. You get points

    every time someone VIEWS the thing, and the amounts are tripled in the PD section and 5X in the research

    section.

    I know this is kind of off

    topic but i have been wondering how users become banned and how other users names become DONOTDELETE? Anyone know

    how this comes about?

    A user is banned for cause by

    Bruce or one of the moderators, usually after repeat warnings. They can no longer post on the forum or use PM or

    SMS.

    A "Do Not Delete" user is somebody who has requested that all reference to them be removed from the forum.

    It allows us to retain their input while removing their name. That is a time consuming process and is pretty rare

    but has been done when a user had an over-riding reason for it.
    To compel a man to subsidize with his taxes the propagation of ideas which he disbelieves and abhors is sinful and tyrannical.

    The DoNotDelete thing is actually a

    carry over from a previous forum application. At the moment, we can delete a user and all his/her posts will

    immediately be switched to having been posted by a "Guest".

    I can tell you exactly how he got his points. I've discovered that if you score high enough to place second in

    Seal Bounce in the arcade, you get half the jackpot points. I know this because I've gotten points that way

    twice. Lifetransform placed second over the past week ( I know cause he edged me out of second by 4 points ).

    So, that answers your specific question.

    I thought you had to get to

    #1 to get the jackpot. I guess that is not right, at least for Seal Bounce.
