Hi. This is just an idea I was thinking of, nothing definite. I haven't considered all the pros and cons and so I just wanted to see your views about it.

What if we redo the points system? The way it is, points have been devalued, especially for established players. Some members, me included, have so many points that they don't care about getting more. There was a sort of a thrill back when this site was started but it kinda whizzed off. At least that is how I see it. Because of this, a lot of achievements do not carry any point bonus with them, simply, because points mean nothing the higher members go up the rank. Besides, there is a considerable gap between long standing members and new ones.

My suggestion is to only take into consideration points earned in the past, say, 30 or 60 days. That way we can have a better reason to try to earn points. We could also add a dynamic top ranking members list in the front page.

Let me know what you think.
