    We are adding and updating some features to the forums. This update will add many new features to the site and fix some of the ones that haven't worked in awhile.

    This includes a long over due update to Points. You will have many new ways to earn points and use your points!

    Unfortunately this does mean that you will loose your current points. We apologize for that inconvenience, but hope this new system will be worth it!

    Here is more information about the updates.

    Points
    Earn points in up to 50 different ways
    Easier ways to track and view points
    Points trading
    User to User Gifts with points
    Shop to spend your points

    Activity Awards
    Earn badges and awards for forum activities.
    Earn Achievements

    Tagging
    Now when you mention another user, you can tag them.
    You'll be notified of posts that mention you.

    We are installing the new updates today. It may take a few days to get everything setup.

    Thanks for your patience and support.

    Hope you enjoy the updates!

        I hate the fact that we're losing our current points....A lot of us have worked hard posting and earning those points and hanging onto them thru several updates , losing them and earning them back . Now we have to do it all over again.....
        I believe blood quantums are the governments way to breed us out of existance !


        They say blood is thicker than water ! Now maple syrup is thicker than blood , so are pancakes more important than family ?

        There are "Elders" and there are "Olders". Being the second one doesn't make the first one true !

        Somebody is out there somewhere, thinking of you and the impact you made in their life.
        It's not me....I think you're an idiot !

          Wow, there is so much data to track now, LOL. New points don't bother me at all, especially if we can actually do things with them now.

                    Yes, sorry about that.

                    Even if I could make it work, there were billions of points on the boards. Any new system just wouldn't work with that much out there.

                            Yes, I can play in the arcade. It was just that before the big crash I had finally got to the 10k points to buy an arcade pass. When we came back on line I had to start over and mentioned it... then JD and Wardancer gave me credits to buy a pass... was just about to try to buy one and we're starting over ...lol... this new scheme seems way more fun...looking forward to using it.
