Happy New Year, Community!
Since we erased everyone's points a couple of days ago, I thought we could start off the new year by racking up some points right away!
The best way to do that is simply by being active on the community. But not all activity in the community yields the same number of points! Below, you'll find handy charts on how many points you get for various activities in the community. So, I'll leave it up to you to decide which ones you'll want to do.
So you can earn as many points in January as you really want to! So, EVERYONE who does SOMEthing will earn points this month. But here's the twist: The top 10 points leaders at the end of January get a bonus 100 points!
Even if you're not really interested in competition for points, the charts are a useful bit of information to know.
Many thanks to the following people who took part in the December Mission: A Gift Exchange ("Points for Posts"):
Good luck, everyone! I'll see you on the forums!

How do I see my points?
You're able to see how you're going by opening up your profile, and clicking on the rolling points box. You'll also be able to view the badges you have, as well as how far along you are to earning another badge.
How do I see other user's points?
Simple. Just hover over someone's name and you'll see their points. You can also view their profile and view their points and any badges they have earned.
