I hope this is not too frivolous a question, but I have one of the new format boards, and for the life of me, I can't figure out how to vote for people to give them points. Turns out my point count is currently stuck on 666, and being a little bit superstitious, I feel having that number is like the sword of Damocles hanging over my head...How in the world can I change it to 667, so I can go through life without being cursed?

Did your points change? I gave the topic a point. Don't know if that changes your points or not.

Well thankyou, Not2Foxy, but giving the topic points doesn't seem to affect the personal points.....I just don't understand how something could be so non-intuitive....I'm still stuck with that bad, bad number..Image

Sorry! Chris will know. As far as I know I have never given anybody a point.  I don't blame you though, I wouldn't want those numbers either. lol. I have no idea how many points I have. Do you have the old profile?

You can give a point by clicking the points on their profile page for old style profiles. Unfortunately, there is no points option for new style profiles.

Points can also be given to topics, which actually go to the profile as well, as long as certain criteria are met :)

Thanks for your help....The points don't matter to me, but I just wanted to get it off that horribly disturbing 666 number!It's changed now.....I don't know how, but everything's better now.....Image
