    What does this mean? I'm assuming you get points for having someone like a post of yours. Do this points do anything for you or are they just part of the forum script and kind of useless?

    Alright yeah, I figured this would arise at some point haha.

    These points right now are pretty moot and really only exist because of the default XenForo settings, we do plan however in the future to make the points actually mean something to the community.

    As for obtaining these points, they will be like doing achievements like in most games. They will result from doing various actions or being part of something. Once the requirement is met, then you are rewarded with these 'points'.

    And finally like most things, I am open to all suggestions from the community as how we will handle it and some possible things you all would like to see.

    Thanks again guys!

    Cool, that's what I figured. I think the points could come in handy as an incentive for promoting eMunie, or doing some other activity. Maybe special privileges would be unlocked with more points, not sure what those would be though.

    Also, will points determine user status (e.g. under my name it says new member) or are those decided by posts?

    Yeah there are 'trophy titles' as they are called, which are preset titles that are determined by hitting different point tiers. I think 5 points is the next tier, and then some users will be able to just change their titles without point requirements, so that will probably be gave to the founders as a perk.

    Awesome, I double checked our settings and made sure that the normal registered users are not allowed to change their titles and founders are. So that will stay like that until we think of something else or if it fits well we will keep it.

    Thanks, we got a load of other ideas yet for this forum but we'd like to build at least a moderate following before we spend the time implementing new features etc
