Yep - that's how it works

Ok - in case anyone else is interested that is how it works.  The system just looks back to the time of the prior two new threads so in my case, my lack of due diligence writing down the times of my last posts cost me the potential 400 points for the day. 

I just gotta be more careful ....

points

Mike, by obsessing about this on the open forum, you are reaffirming the contest naysayers that state that all members care about are the points and  prizes, and requires that BGH dangle a carrot to get any participation. I of course don't believe that's true. I've watched & moderated the forum for many years and members come and go, regardless of whether there is a contest or not.

  
Now about the points, I'm confident the system treats all posts equally. I would say post new topics as you would like to, and see what happens.

Good post cowgal, as it does

"my lack of due diligence writing down the times of my last posts cost me the potential 400 points for the day.

Using the clock to watch what time you make posts---hard to believe, but you guys all said you don't worry about points, LOL!!!  Golly, I won a prize last month and didn't start one new thread.  I guess I'm slipping!!!

Good post cowgal, as it does exactly what you said!!!
