Not to complain because I genuinely like this forum but why is it sooooooooooo hard to get points? I have 30 points and have been on this about 4 years. In comparison I am on Beer Advocate because I like my stouts and IPA's and have over 200 points in a little over a year. I don't go on it as much and have posted less than 50 times compared to almost 2000 times on GPF but lately i have found it fun to earn points as my likes and posts add up along with my points. To back up my argument right now there are 3 members on GPF logged in. I just checked BA and they have 1060 members logged in right now. Is a beer forum so much more popular than us nuts who love ponds? If you look how they award points it is way easier to get them. For instance first post is 5 points. 5 likes is 10 points, 10 likes is 10 points, 25 likes is 10 points etc. Also much easier to get points for number of posts etc.. Of course we are not on this forum just to win points but it does make it more fun when they stack up. Maybe this sort of change would help. When you look at 1060 to 3 why not try something different?
