Dear Venomland Members and Friends, Venomland is a little more than 6 years old now and by far the biggest Hot Snake community on the Planet! We want to thank all of you who made Venomland the leading Board. We are also very thankful to our Moderators and Admins for years of hard work. Now, it is time to move on. I have been thinking how to proceed and what to do with our beloved board as we reach a size, that we need to make drastic changes to secure the future of our community. As of now, Venomland is hosted by a free (well mostly free) hosting service. That was good for the first years but now we need to find a new way to run our forum. I have spend hundreds of Dollars over the years to keep Venomland up and running, and i have done so with pleasure. Now, we need your help! We need to come up with several thousand dollars for our Venomland 2.0 project, which i frankly cant pay for any longer by myself. So Venomland is asking his Friends and Members for the first time for their financial Support. Please help to keep Venomland alive, and let us move on to a new, better Portal in the Future! Every Dollar is helping us a great deal. I know, its hard times for everyone, but please spare a few Dollar for our community. If you have only 10 Dollars to spare, we are grateful, if it is more, it would be awesome. We are planning to develop a very new Venomland, with real community functions, a forum like you are already loving it and a real (online) Hot Snake Magazin. Also, there will be download areas for scientific papers, Wallpapers and more. Again folks, we can only do that if you all help. Please send me a Private Message if you want to keep Venomland alive, i will provide you with the details on how to donate Money. For now, we can accept money from creditcards via skrill (please google it, its a free service - account-details will be forwarded to you) and paypal. All the best, and for a (hopefully) nice future of our Board. Mario

I was wondering what those 'points' in the users profile mean. I cannot find any relation between these and the number of posts or the Rank or whatever. So what are they for or what do they tell me?

Just curious

I have also wondered. One relation is when you click on the + or - of a users post, it either increases or decreases their points by 1.

So you will see a user with low posts but with high points - which would mean that the quality of his posts is high. And then the opposite will apply for users who posts have no substance but posts 50 times per day.

I could stand to be corrected, but this is what I picked up.

Feel free to click on the + for this post to test it out :-)

Aah, ok! That in deed seems to be the point. At least it works the way you described.

Thanks!

How are points calculated?

* Points generated by the number of posts
* Points generated by the number of topics created
* Points generated by the number of friends that the user has
* Reputation points
* Points generated by the registration date of the member
* Points generated by the number of message on his profile

Do not take this point system as very reliable - it's just a stupid counting machine unable to see differences between longer, valuable and short, chat-like postings (like "sent you PM" or "Wow, stunning pictures")

regards
Peter
