You may've noticed the new experience system. It's basically like pearls, but with a few differences!

As you do things on the forum, you gain points. What things get you points and how many can be found here: http://www.theologyweb.com/campus/xperience.php?go=earn

You can send points to people by clicking on their name on a post, and clicking "send points." (If that doesn't work, use the "send points" button in the nav bar.)

Gotta catch 'em all.

So, we send our OWN points, just like we sent our own pearls, thereby decrementing our points count? :smile:

Chrs

Correct! You lose points when you send them to people.

What do we do with points though?

Cow Poke

So, for example, I have 100 points, and I send you 10, then I only have 37 left?

We give them all to Mossy. :smile: NONE to Sparko -- EVER!

In this thread, the only person that I see that has the option to send points to is Chrs.

:hrm:

Hmmmmm.... I just clicked on Mossy's name, and couldn't find anywhere to send her points! :rant:

..Huh, weird.

Okay, just use the link at the top until I fix that.

@Cerebrum - You... weren't around for pearls, were you?

I suppose this will have to do until we get amens back.

Oho! I've figured the problem. I'll see if I can fix it.

I can't eat points. What good are they for?

No good whatsoever. So send me all of yours.

No good whatsoever. So send me all of yours.Hmmm.... no glaring smiley. I wished for a smiley to indicate "I smell a trouty smell." Here's a guy who says points are no good whatsoever, then asks for them. Won't that make you screw up your face and make you think, that looks funny?

:eww:Christianbookworm and Mossy, thank you. After seeing your posts, I took a long look around the editor. Behold! I have actually figured it out, getting the whole roster of smilies in a popup. I confess it didn't occur to me to simply try putting "glare" between two colons. Let me try this: :grateful:

Yeah, I don't remember that one. But there is a big bunch of smileys around.

Just not my custom ones.

If you go advanced there is an option that shows all the smilies. Had you forgotten that?

I went from 79 points down to 70 today... whhyyyy?

mossrose

And it is nothing like pearls.

Or even amens.

:frown:

Amens were intended to be an easy way to say "me too" without having to make a post. This is mostly a more complicated version of pearls, except you keep accumulating "experience" instead of starting with a fixed quantity of pearls. IMO the limited quantity of pearls made them more 'valuable.' :shrug:

Chrs
02-09-2014, 12:58 PM
Yeah, going to get amens working too.

Teallaura

mossrose
02-09-2014, 01:12 PM
Yeah!


With the pearls, you knew who gave them to you and usually why. And you could explain why you are giving them to someone.

Can't do either with the points.

Amen, moss, and pearls to you (if I could).

I agree. I don't see the point of it. You are removing the personal touch of seeing who sent them to you and replacing it with numbers only and no redeemable value.

Also, the New Posts side thread was a great feature of the old model, I'm sure I speak for a few, it would be nice to see that back up.

That, and some of the posts I haven't read don't show up dark blue. I think they are too old or something. I keep missing out on the conversations because I lose track. :sigh:

The problem is that posts seem to automatically mark themselves as read.

Logging out with unread posts will result in all posts then marked unread marked read when logging in.

^ Yeah, that.
