Genesis Reward Points off topic

Recommended Posts

As we all all working to make this community better. off topic is a must have thread but maybe we should not get rewards for the off topic section. you should be rewarded for all relevent and on topic information you are giving but off topic is just a fun place to be not needed to get rewards for that

You can only edit 5 minutes after posting I believe.

Introduce Yourself does not reward any points as it was being point farmed to an extreme level! We'll consider making off-topic not reward points.

That's why we disabled earning points there so people can say Hello and Welcome to whoever they want as often as they want without feeling like they are spamming, so long as it's not to the same person over and over :P

I suggest introduce yourself points should be given to newbies alone

newbies don't need to be cuddled.  they'll get it once it hits them what a great website this is.

Even if we enabled it just for newbies, it still doesn't prevent people from point farming as a newbie could easily go through and reply to every welcome thread and earn points that way. Plus it starts getting more complicated the more restrictions etc we add for the different levels and ranks.

Disabling earning points in the introduce yourself and disabling the feature to send points between one another has definitely helped somewhat.

They did reward points until a few minutes ago as I've now disabled it, unfortunately.

I held off doing it to see if we had turned a corner and we did, but the last 24 hours has just shown that there's a small group of people who spoilt it for everyone else.

It's ridiculous and a lot of the replies are just point farming so we've had to crack down on it. If it spreads to the other sections of the forums expect to see some bans being handed out.

In the long run, we're looking at making proper ranks that will reward points depending on your rank when you post to prevent everyone being punished. However for now until that is implemented off-topic no longer rewards points.

its a shame but thats what i thought would happen. so many people only doing this for the points. i like the ranks idea should should scare of the farmers a bit if they have to contribute or wait say 7 days before being able to earn points

putting a cool off period between posts would discourage mass posting.

@cbob1911i think this will be resolved by the use of ranks if you use a cool of you will still have the same problem but it will only take more time.

what's to stop them when the 7 days are  up from mass posting again?  they could just sign up, leave the forum for 7 days, and come back.
