............. can be "cashed in". Each user point represents 1/100th of its true worth, ie 46 points= $4600. This cash can be used to swap for fishing gear/equipment "to the value of" from Adams fishing shed. Nice offer from fishwrecked eh, you don't see that in other forums........

I'm only guessing here

I'm only guessing that this is some kind of user rating where - if you contribute a lot in a helpful and positive manner - you gain points, however if Adam has to constantly edit or delete your posts due to unacceptable content, then maybe he can delete points etc...

I guess user points might be an indication as to how reliable a posters content can be trusted based on the length of time they have been a member and the number of their accumulated points!

Something I did notice with regard to user points is that they can go up a lot each time you post a picture.

Because I have a Flywest folder and also the Engines Maintenance folder, - I uploaded a heck of a lot of individual pics for the engine maintenance threads on doing your own water pump impellers, oil changes and servicing etc and these took my post count way way up in just a couple days or so.

Now - if points were awarded for the length of individual posts,(number of words typed) I'd certainly blitz all of ya, coz - I was accidentally vaccinated with a grammaphone needle at birth and haven't shut up much since!

Actually my nick names "Bic Biro" - coz theres a guaranteed 1000 words in every refill!

Now - if each Month, the top points persons count was divided by ten and made into a equivalent $ discount, on purchases of tackle from the site sponsors tackle or boat shops - we'll I'd get off my fat behind and post a heap more pics and write a couple more boating maintenance threads! ;o)

If you all want me to give it a rest so you can catch up just say the word! ;o)

Cheers!

Speaking of the user popints Flywest (or should I now refer to you as 'Bic'.....lol) you had better watch out and get typing. I have noticed SHizz is creeping up on your title!!

I was waiting for this to come up, only took 9 months :) It is like an alternative for the amount posts, as most other sites have. Interesting point Flywest, some incentive to post hey. Might have to think about that one. I don't want to encourage spam posting, but would like to reward members all the same.. Hmmmmmmmm.

No catching Flywest

Bloody Hell I better push to get my second place back. Must keep Shizz in my sights. Might have to start digging the albums. I'll only push for second because flywest is off the scales!!.
Didn't think it would be long before Andy was up there. I better get a move along. Hopefully a successful happy snap mission out this long weekend. Smile!!!!!!!!! ;-)
