What are Points? How do I get points?

 

Points are credits awarded whenever you perform an action at mechteacher.com forums. They are awarded in the following ways:

  1. Ten points are awarded when you register for the first time at mechteacher.com
  2. Three points are awarded when you create a new forum topic.
  3. Three points are awarded when you create a new reply.
  4. Two points are awarded (once per day) for logging in everyday.
  5. One point is awarded when a user favorites your forum topic.
  6. Ten points are deducted if you post a spam topic.
  7. Eight points are deducted if you post a spam reply.

You can see your current points balance in the top toolbar, in your profile or in the right sidebar (if you are logged in). By gaining points you can unlock ranks and badges. For a list of ranks you can unlock at mechteacher.com, click here.

Note: If a user’s points balance becomes negative (i.e., less than zero), the user’s account will be locked and deactivated.
