• Wishful thinking.It's been a moth and still no points,followers or chat..
    • TBO
      LOL MOTH... I mean month.

      When Fun1 comes back I'd like to see him with his half a million points back. They even created a special new level for him, they called it Einstein. It was sad to see that brought to such a sudden and abrupt end. I was especially pleased for him topping the Leaderboard 'cos he wasn't a Community Leader and the previous two top Baggers were. I enjoyed watching the CLs being ousted from the top by a regular who wasn't a CL himself. Lol:)
    • Thriftymaid
      Gee, you mean people really cared about that stuff?
    • Hogey the Roguey
      Yes, Thriftymaid. Some of us did care about that stuff. It was better than flagging certain questions in the `Legal` category just because they didn`t appeal to your high & mighty taste.
    • Kenz the Frenz
      Nice one, Hogey! :)
  • We'd better get them back.
  • I don't see that happening - new owner, new game. Not that I care - that whole system never worked very well anyway on the former site. I swear I had fewer "points" after six years than I had after two years.
  • Well ChelseaaLee is here now, thats all that matters :)
    • Kenz the Frenz
      Good to see you back, Chelsea. :)
    • Hogey the Roguey
      Good to see both of you in a thread together. Lol:)
  • Well all of the answers I'd given on the old AB have been restored to my profile so I suppose there is a chance that points will be restored as well.

      If there is hope of that, is there hope that people won't call other members "trolls" when they are not trolls? Or is that asking too much?
    • Ice man
    • Temperance Brennan
      I don't follow. I've never called anyone a troll much less anyone undeserving.
    • Nosmo King
      @Temperance Brennan: I didn't say that you personally called anyone a troll, and if you say you didn't then I believe you. In fact, that was why I phrased it as "is there hope that people won't call other members "trolls" when they are not trolls?". The word "people" means people in general and is not referring to anyone specific.
    • Nosmo King
      @Ice man: Having multiple accounts is not in itself being a troll. Neither is posting repeatedly harmless, inoffensive questions. I really don't want to carry on arguing about it, but those questions were not intended to get others riled up, and (even though it is hardly my fault if other members didn't like those questions) I am sorry for all the unwarranted drama it caused. If I had even the tiniest inkling it would have stirred up trouble I wouldn't have bothered. Now, can we stop this silliness and interact like civilised AB members?
    • Temperance Brennan
      @Nosmo King Thank you for clarifying. I understand now.
  • I would like to have answered this question in the affirmative, but quite frankly I have my doubts.
  • No. Very little data was captured from the old site. I don't see that there is a point system at all right now. It may be in the future. 12/29
  • I don't expect that will happen because this isn't the old AB. There is no reason to bring them back, anyway they weren't of any real value. It's not like you could cash them in for a prize of some sort.
  • I'd hardly paid attention to points and don't recall a purpose they served. So I don't see why it matters.
  • There are a number of things from the old AB that would be great to have back. Some that should never raise their ugly heads again.
    • Ice man
  • I'm not that bothered about the points, I only had about 150 points on the old AB.
  • I hope so. I had about 10 accounts on the Points Leaderboard on the old AB. I always used to post questions to brag about it every time I got another account on the Leaderboard or one of my others reached a higher level.
