## Last Call for your free 555 points

Offer Expires Jan. 31st at midnight.

**Who knows what you might be able to use your points for in the coming months π**

There was an update for the points feature that this site uses and it brought a couple new features. You can now donate points to other members of this site. You just need to know there username. Easiest way is to just click on there name in the sidebar or in the point list, which shows everyone on the site at once.

**I’ll give 555 points for every member that comments on this post! It will help give a points boost to those who have no points or very little. This offer expires January 31, 2010.**

Now you can track the points you’ve earned. By visiting the “My Points” link at the bottom of the sidebar after you have logged in. It’s right above the search box.

Here is a refresher of what you get points for. But you need to be **logged in** for it to count.

* 5 Points for a Comment

* 40 Points for a Post

* 100 Points for New Members that join the site

Co-Writers can earn extra points on the Weekly Recap:

* 200 Contributor of the Week

* 100 Most Liked

* 100 Most Comments

*** New
* 15 Points for visiting the site every day!
* 5 Points for a reply in the Forum
* 25 Points for a New Topic Creation in the Forum**

You can track your points on the right side bar. And see the members with the highest points.

This plugin is powered by CubePoints.

**[Update] I changed how much the points are worth.**

**[Update 2] I went back and gave 100 points to members with points below 100 points. So everyone has at least 100 points now.**

If you have any ideas on how we could use the points, lets hear it.

iFlashon January 6th, 2010What are these points you speak of? Can they be redeemed for say….hummm a cheeseburger?

iFlashon January 6th, 2010 [ 860 Points ]Much to my chagrin I was never really registered for this site. I’ve just been posting …I am now in the hunt for sweet sweet points.

#5 by mcloki on January 6th, 2010 [ 2355 Points ]

Cool more points to collect. I’m a bit of a collection whore.

#6 by SL33PY on January 6th, 2010 [ 2371 Points ]

I have no clue what the points do… or howmany (few?) i have

#7 by

macdoryon January 6th, 2010Not sure what points do – do they make prizes?

Ceidzon January 6th, 2010 [ 55160 Points ]If I make it to up to 10,000 points, do I unlock the PS3Blog.net Platinum Trophy ?

#9 by Emrah on January 6th, 2010 [ 7319 Points ]

What will I do with all the points??

#10 by

Kickson January 6th, 2010 [ 559 Points ]I’ll take some free points π

#11 by

Macdoryon January 6th, 2010 [ 3445 Points ]Free points …

#12 by Blackstaffer on January 6th, 2010 [ 7286 Points ]

It’s like Christmas all over again. First I get a silver controller in the mail today and now 555 points. It’s just too much… sniff sniff.

#13 by

JimmyMagnumon January 6th, 2010 [ 83116 Points ]points! Im at second place, just behind Tosh really haha. 7775 vs his 8175 :P. I’m just sexy like that, though; obviously, Tosh is only slightly sexier

#14 by Emrah on January 6th, 2010 [ 7319 Points ]

Btw, 50 points just for visiting is a bit too much, innit? The contributor of the week gets less than that, and less for news posts..

#15 by

Ravenitriuson January 6th, 2010 [ 1285 Points ]Is news slow or something?

#16 by jdoug on January 6th, 2010

Awesome! When can I cash these points in?

#17 by Tosh on January 6th, 2010 [ 1117 Points ]

How about I change it to 15 points for a daily visit? Oh, the contributor of the week get 150 points.

#18 by Emrah on January 6th, 2010 [ 7319 Points ]

15 sounds more reasonable actually.. I mis-read The contributor of the week, dunno how; sorry! A daily visit should not give more points than an actual post, which currently is at 25 (assuming posts refer to blog posts).. Actually, a post could be somewhere along 30-40 pts..

#19 by

Darrinon January 6th, 2010 [ 17143 Points ]So, pretty much everyone here is asking what is the “point” of these points?

Well? Tosh? What is the answer?

#20 by Emrah on January 6th, 2010 [ 7319 Points ]

Hmm. e.g. Sometimes you do giveaways, we may be able to “spend” those points on lottery chances. Then you’d have to have a total points earnt and points spent information, tho.. Other than bragging rights, this could be useful. Well, I am currently out of fresh ideas π

#21 by

caldape95on January 6th, 2010 [ 255 Points ]haha! Here for the points!

But I do like Emrah’s idea of a lottery. But if you can’t afford to give stuff away then try thinking of stuff you can give us virtually.

#22 by

SicSemperTyranison January 6th, 2010 [ 6405 Points ]Alright! Free points!

#23 by Tosh on January 6th, 2010 [ 1117 Points ]

At the moment it’s just for bragging rights. I like the lottery idea though. I’ll take note of that. I’ve also thought of buying virtual items with the points as well. But can’t think of anything right now.

Let me know if you guys have any more ideas on how to use the points.

I’ve updated the point values in the post.

Oh, jdoug I don’t show you as an member. I’ve updated all the commentators with 555 points π

You can check your points in the sidebar in the middle-ish.

oly1kenobion January 6th, 2010 [ 132595 Points ]You are all a buncha point whooores… Hey make sure I get mine! π

#25 by

oly1kenobion January 6th, 2010 [ 132595 Points ]by the way.. i say anyone who contributes prizes to this site.. thus bringing many newbs.. say like 15 navarro skin codes… deserves at least 120k points!! lol

#34 by

Sinlockon January 8th, 2010 [ 7625 Points ]Tosh,

Did you ever give the old members the 100 point boost that you and Blackstaffer were talking about back when you started the point system?

#35 by Tosh on January 8th, 2010 [ 1117 Points ]

I haven’t yet, because I have to do them 1 by 1 and there are over 300 members. But I could go back and give the people with 0 points 100 points. Would that work?

#69 by Tosh on January 30th, 2010 [ 1117 Points ]

Not sure why the PS3 browser hates this theme. It’s something I haven’t figured out yet. Would be nice if the PS3 ran chrome / webkit(safari), or firefox.
