Can someone tell me what the points are all about? I am new here today, and I just noticed there are points for viewing, reviewing, etc. Thanks a million! :)

The more "points" you gain just shows that you are really interested in helping others and yourself in the knowledge of being a diabetic. If you have questions, post them and others will help you out. If you have issues to resolve and need to vent, this is a great forum. Being a new person to the site, you will gain lots of valuable information and many "long" distance friends that really do care.

I am here for friends and information both. I am not here for points either. I am a naturally curious person, wondered what they were all about, and asked here. :)

I am fairly new too, but it seems that you receive points for every Friend you invite, for comments on recipes or articles pertaining to diabetis etc. It just shows how active you are on this site.

Personally, I don't care, if I FEEL the need to write or make a comment that I think might help someone, I write—It isn't like you are going to win a new car for the most points, guess it is just to help keep one active and contributing to this site to keep it alive.

I hope that my dab of knowledge or observations have helped explain the mystery. And Welcome aboard! Hugs, Pat Roth
