I have a question the points which are showing in the picture I attached what are they for ? Can they be exchanged for anything?

    Everytime you comment you receive points. Once you have 25 points you can send private messages to other members. Other than that there's no other benefits to them. To be honest i never take any notice of the points.
    I would appreciate it if members wouldn't tag me please. I have all notifcations turned off and wouldn't want a member thinking i'm being rude by not replying.
    If i see a question that i know the answer to i will try my best to help.

    Four visits in eleven years ? not sure what you would expect to exchange points for but poppy explains it well.
    2024 The year of the general election...the time for change is coming 💡

    WOW 
    Exactly that’s why I usually do not log in when I visit , because of rude comments like this !

    I think there is a code of conduct on how we should treat others !
    I was not expecting anything but thought that you could maybe earn other badges 🤷🏻‍♀️

    maybe remember for next time : if you have nothing nice to say then just be quiet !
    Because you never know what kind of day the person might have had and your comment might have been the one thing pushing them over the edge mentally!
    Have a think 🤔

    I'm sorry you took my comment the way you did but my day if I'm brutally honest has probably been worse than the one many of others have had, I wasn't trying to be rude or clever just honest, I will ensure I never answer your post again and again apologies if I unintentionally caused any upset or ill feeling.

    Hi @Alex6471, welcome back to the community :)

    The points are simply a system to interact with. The more people interact on the community the more points you get. You get community badges the higher your points. It's mostly just a fun little system for community activity. I understand the confusion though, as there are some places that use the word "points" as a currency system.

    Regarding what woodbine said, as he's already explained he did not mean anything rude by it. It can be very difficult to get tone through just text, so misunderstandings can often crop up when wording and tone is ambiguous. You're always welcome here, do let us know if there is anything we can do to help you feel comfortable here :)
    They/Them, however they are no wrong pronouns with me so whatever you feel most comfortable with
