The Point System

As some of you are already aware, I have been keeping track of Points. Points are very simple things, but they can earn you rewards from me. Upon reaching ten points, I send or give something to the person. What this is is a really big secret (at least until fred_smith gets his in the mail), but more to the point: it changes from person to person, and is more based on proximity and what a proper reward would be than on any sort of standing tradition.

Some of you may have noticed me shouting "Point!" when you made a comment or a good post. Some of you may have been in an IM conversation with me and I've conceded "Good point." These things are the most common ways to win Points.

Other things may also win you Points, but in general it's the sudden reaction of "Oh, good point!" That always gets a Point. Points may be made by anyone, and given to anyone. Sometiems particularly good and rich images get Points. I suppose, also, that Points could be awarded for . . . other merits as well, but this has not happened yet.

Men and women alike can get points. I'm not really strict on how they are reported, but I hold the master list. That may seem unfair, and one might note that I am the furthest ahead *and* hold the list, but I should also mention that I don't gain anything from getting points, as I'm the one distributing stuff for them.

I do not keep track of what gets a person a particular Point, as that's just too much paperwork for me.

What happens when someone reaches 100 points? Gee, I dunno. I have a while to think about it, though.
