Hi everyone,

I wanted to give a shout out to the member points leaders and expose anyone who is not aware of this feature to it. Basically members can earn points for activity on the site. The highest points scoring option is inviting new members, so feel free to invite your whole address book if you'd like.

Click here to see the leaderboard

Here is more info on the Points System:

Points Breakdown:

Make a friends = 10
Join a group = 20
Start a discussion in the forum = 10
Post in the forum = 50
Post a blog = 50
Add a photo = 10
Add a video = 10
Add a song = 5
Add an event = 25
Add a comment = 5
Receive a comment = 5
Each invitation you send =100


There are 5 things that make up this feature.

1.) Activity - How active a member is.
2.) Rank - The name of the level reached.
3.) Points - Points that each activity is awarded.
4.) Awards - The graphic icon that shows rank.
5.) The Leaderboard - This is where you can view the Top Rankings for this site

Your POINTS will only update when you View your page!

You can climb up through the Ranks by doing the things you do everyday on www.baristaexchange.com.

NOTE: You need to Click the cup icon on your page to View the Rankings Leaderboard. Be aware that other's points will only show when they view the Leaderboard too!

As you gain a higher rank and are given more points - the Award icon on your page will change to reflect your rising Rank.

Click on the points to view the Activity of the member who's page you are visiting. You can check up on any members Activity at any time to see how they are doing.

Please NOTE - If a Site Administrator catches you abusing this system by posting SPAM or frivolous comments to gain points - they will delete those and your points will be automatically deducted. Comments posted to your own comment-wall will not be recognized by the system.

I must confess, this had the opposite of the intended effect on me. Once I saw I was in the top 20, I figured I was spending too much time online!
Flavored drip coffee should be exterminated from the face of the planet. Maybe that should be the core cause of the point system. Each point you get causes one ounce of crap (Flavored Coffee)to be poured down a drain somewhere in the Midwestern United States. I would definitely participate in that point system Stephen. My opinion is so right,that the original post was on my birthday. Put that in your portafilter and pull it!

I guess it's kind of like flavored drip - some people think they like it...lol.
It's just not for me, but I am good at ignoring things so no harm done.

Scott's comment proves how well people like it, apparently, as I am thinking "Who cares if it IS rigged?" =]

I'm sorry, there's no punch and pie.

I may be absolutely confused about how this works. I'm new here!

It tastes like hell and is used to cover up the defect flavors of inferior beans.  That's the problem.  Next?

That's like asking a sommelier what's wrong with putting cola in wine.
