Looking for "points"....

lol

Anyone else doing it?  While many of the posters have disappeared, I and a few others are still here.  However, I have to admit, I am still instinctively looking at the top of the post to see how many "points" I got for that reply......

I think this site has corrupted our minds!!!!! Wink

Ha ha! That's too funny! It's not corruption - it's training, you've trained your brain for that instant feedback. We're actually thinking of bringing the points back for our smaller monthly prizes. People seem to like the instant gratification of seeing points for their posts. Big smile ...that's why they get antsy when they don't see their stories and tips posted immediately!! lol

Man I can't even compete with some of you guys so I don't pay much attention to points. If I have something to say I say it if not I just read this place has a lot of good stuff even without the prizes. Grin

bah humbug to points

"I was looking for stuff and I came to this site and readed alot, but one question? which calibre for deer?"

 

That was about the extent of 95% of posts on here while contest was ongoing. I say good riddance to those point chasers that didn't stick around after it was all over.

No need for that

Brokenarrow, this is a family website - keep your posts clean. 

If you don't want to participate in the contest, it really is no big deal. You don't have to. We feel the contest adds some fun for the folks that enjoy it.
