Points? How to get 'em?

Sat, Aug 29, 2009 at 8:46 AM

Hi, Maybe it's explained somewhere here, but I'm trying to figure out:
1) How do I get more points
2) What will I be able to do with those points
Thanks!

    I would be nice if we were given points for correct spelling and proper grammar and punctuation.

    I'm super confused about the points too. I can't find any place on here that explains how or why you get them and what they are used for. Not super concerned about it, but it's just kind of confusing.

    The only thing I see about points is, if you get 3,000 of them, you can use them to buy a FFF shirt.

    If you get like 8500 you get to be "Mayor Of Mohawk"...which apparently just entails having a picture of you in the establishment.

    Now that the points menu is being fleshed out, just remember that the points ARE audited, so if you create a bunch of one two or three word blogs to earn points, when you go to redeem your points someone will be looking at all of your site activity. I know this because a friend of mine tried to scam the site last year and ended up losing ALL of his points. There was a girl who also cut and pasted music reviews from punknews.org and she got caught as well. It sucks, but what the hell.

    The way it is set up, the only really legitimate way you can earn the bigger items like PIPS is to have been on the site since they started the forum and profile system, which I believe was about a year and 2 months ago. There may be some ways to earn a dramatic amount of points in a contest or something before fest time, but if I were you I'd try for the trivia contests on twitter, etc. to get tickets if you so desire. I DO know that the points menu will be expanding even more in the coming weeks to encompass food, booze, and some other goodies.

    This is what I was hoping for as well...particularly regarding food, since I'm PIPing it and will be swimming in beer but certainly wouldn't mind cutting down my food tab.

    I'm wondering if I don't use my points this year if I can use them next year and then have a shit ton and for sure be able to be queen of the orange stage.

    I've been making a lot of blog posts recently to help boost my points. But I don't think they are all being counted? Aren't we supposed to be getting ten points for each? Yeah they're not really long but they tend to be at the very least a few sentences about actual topics. What gives?
