I've been seeing more and more people use their profiles like and instant messenger with asinine conversations that rack up tons and tons of points for them. I just really don't think asking someone how their day is going is worth 2 points...

I so agree with this. Even though I've rank up a lot through talking, I've always had that thought in the back of my mind. I seriously think that posting on people's profiles should be awarded with no points or at least make it 1 point because it makes it a lot more fair.

Very much agreed on this. In fact I've just emailed Dan about it. I really wish our moderating tools were upgraded already so I could mass delete comments.

...you get points for doing that? What the hell? I never knew that, and I think I knew a decent amount. That would explain why some of these kids have so many points.

Yep, I won't mention specific users, but they will go back and forth on their profiles. They've racked up hundreds of APs a day. Then us weirdos in our one corner of the forum don't care about ranking on the board but suffer the spam.

Yeah, exactly. I am here more for the people than the points.
I have seen it several times, and just could not figure it out. Now I know!

i agree.... 0 points or 1 point will be enough for profile comments....if someone were to do that, i would delete it... oh by the way...if i deleted a messege on my profile that someone has posted...will they get less points...if not then you should do that aswell.....and also can you delete comments that come though the games we submitted.... I could try that if I was good at making games......

I think all profile comments should be 0 points. Honestly, forum posts should've been 2 because it is RARE to see spam in the forums, and when it happens me, Carlie or Dank are on top of it quickly.

I would agree with that Asherlee. We definitely see more constructive posts in the forums than we do in profile comments. So it would make sense that forum posts would count for more, if not the same amount at least.

More constructive? Oh yes. More creative? Eh, that is up for debate. Personally, I know I can cut the proverbial rug with my comments since I have no real guidelines or conversation to adhere to.

But I am afraid that if we raised forum posts, then more people who just want points will filter in here. The we won't get as good of conversations as we do.
