    I was writing one of my typical rants at another forum participant via private message when I noticed I had points....I guess I have seen them before, but never much cared.

    But, then I noticed he had a trophy -- or was it special points toward a trophy -- well, I still don't really care, but I am a curious sort.

    I poked around a bit, but did not find any forum rules or any faq that explained points, trophies or how to win a free trip to Hollywood to be awarded said points and trophies. I suppose I must have agreed to some rules when I signed on....but...

    Anyway, cool my feverish curiousity. What's the deal with the points?

    Can we get rid of the points and reinstate the function that "reads" your post as you are writing it and then lets you know the exact same question has already been asked 15 times on the board in the past two years?

    And, BTW, if you are ever totally bored, watching old episodes of Whose Line is it" on YouTube -- especially those with Robin Williams -- is a great way to pass a few hours if your foot is in a cast and your hubby is too cheap to spring for satellite TV.... and you have run out of questions for priuschat...:p

    I thought there was a thread around here somewhere about the points and trophies but I can't find it now. OK, I didn't really search all that hard. OK, I didn't really search at all.

    Hmmm...where do these appear? I'm guessing I don't have any because they weren't awarded retroactively and I haven't been very active since all the changes? And since I don't see anyone else's, I'm guessing you can only see your own...?

    Inquiring minds want to know!

    You have 11 trophies.....you must whine and howl much more than I do. Danny has hidden them in plain sight. Sort of like Easter eggs. Click on your name in the beige box that appears next to all your posts. A strange "special ops" looking black box will pop up.

    I was afraid to mess with it, but mess with it you must if you want to find the truth -- because it is out there.

    In that black box is a phrase something along the line of trophy points, points toward trophy or something along that line (ignore the box pointing you toward world peace). Click on the points themselves and a whole list of your trophies appear.

    BUT REMEMBER -- don't touch any of the wires...

    We must bow to your 11.

    Gosh, darn. I sure feel stupid. All of you who've posted on this thread -- even that weasly little dog rufus or rufalo -- have more trophies than I do. I didn't bother to look at Tony's list, I am sure I can't count that high, but a couple of others have 14....hmmm......nope, nope, don't go there Kristi....

    A year later, and I still only have six stinking trophies....No trip to Hollywood, no ToyYoda.

    AND, The puddle still has more trophies than I do. What's a woman to do?
