I didn't know people were getting extra lately. I'm out of town so not able to check as often.

I always post a few here and there nothing crazy; however, I just spent the last hour reading and posting and I sure am getting the points. It is crazy and had I known I would of probably posted more. But that's because I am very close to getting to the 7.500 mark.

LOL! Nice to know that I'm not alone.

As I said, I would certainly post here anyway but probably not adding my two cents to every other thread. lol!

Normally don't post only lurk, but I am very close to the 10% discount so I figure if they are going to give me the points great if they take them back oh well.

I haven't been on the board in a few days, so I wasn't even aware of this happening. I'm new here, so wasn't even sure how the program really worked in this aspect.

I am absolutely more active. Of course I'm on bed rest, so that helps . I do think the program is pushing me to be more vocal in the community. I've been a lurker for a long time, and was just coming out of my shell when this program went into effect. As I've stated in other threads, I'm seriously considering uploading layouts for the first time. I'm just under 5k from the next level.

I'm sure this program hasn't worked for everyone as they had wished, but so far it's working for me. That's not to say I'm not still upset with the full discount I had before. I stewed over it for a week and decided to give the new program a go. If I find it impossible to maintain a discount I can be happy with I'll make a decision at that time. For now I choose to continue to post and chat with my fellow peas and enjoy all the fun new stuff coming in on what seems like a daily basis!

Sort of, the point system kinda put a spark in me to participate more instead of just lurking in the background..

But I don't just post whatever just for the points. I post where I feel like I can contribute, rather than just post whereever and however..

I just posted 7 layouts - not really for the points, but because I wanted to share how the GG's and peas have inspired me - but getting points was that final push to get me to do it.

I went from 400 to over 4,000 points!

I'm posting more because the board is moving faster and there are more threads that are catching my interest to post.

I think we should all just keep posting to this post to get more points while we wait for the new stuff to get uploaded.

I post mainly on the NSBR board but do lurk over here and post occasionally and would love to make it to the 5% off but will not just post just for the sake of posting. I think they are on to something because the more time I spend on this board the more I want to spend LOL.
I would like to do some of the challenges though just to get out of my rut and then that would mean more posting to the gallery so that wouldn't be bad either.

I know I asked this on another similar thread earlier today is there a listing somewhere that tells you how to earn points other than posting here and the gallery and what the points are for year and the limits and when do the limits reset and does that mean that our points expire that month and we have to use them if we want the discount?

No...I cannot imagine that I will ever have enough points to get to the "big discounts". I try to reply, but sometimes I don't due to plain laziness, I guess. I only have about an hour per day that I have time to web surf, Pea, FB, read email, etc after the kiddos go to bed so I try to quickly skim through all the posts and if my "thoughts" are already posted I don't repeat it. I guess maybe I'm in the minority on the posting though.

I did't even know about all this point stuff till I saw a post a few weeks ago, I didn't even know where to see the points. Finally figured it out and had very few points. But then I made a good size order and now I'm half way to 5% off. Maybe I'll give a few more to get some points!!

I posted a ton in the last few days and reached 11,200 from just 4,000. I don't think it's working for me anymore, but that's fine - I'm not at a good spot!

Well I posted some yesterday and today and my points had went up but I just checked and i lost quite a few and am now lower than what i started with yesterday. I did not have points expiring either. So this is confusing!

Just as I suspected, it was too good to be true.

But it has been great fun chatting on this fast moving MB that was almost as busy as during CHA. And I got my latest projects uploaded to the gallery. Not bad! I'm still happy, despite having "lost" 8,000 points over night.

Of course, I don't really use my points for anything so that makes it easy to stay content.

I just went and looked at my points, and they definitely went down from checking yesterday. I know I didn't even earn the points because I most definitely didn't post/shop as much as my points were reflecting, so it doesn't even matter.

But, since it seems 2Peas just isn't going to answer peoples' questions about how this works, since many have been asked for quite a while, I'll just keep scratching my head.

I have to take my comment above back; 2peas did post an announcement sticky at the top acknowledging problems, and they're working to fix it.
