Speak for yourselves, I myself am sitting pretty. I can only assume that it directly correlates to the quality of posts........

I got banned for a week (for stating a fact) so perhaps that gives you demerits?

Deleting your post earns big deduction points

Other wise IT Is THE QUALITY of your scribbles.

It's a distinct possibility, looking at my tally. I may have to look into a hammock for future years' festivals. Or maybe bunk beds.

Sat on my duff nearly the entire time @ all of my 8 bfests -i'm starting to think the seating theory has some sort of credence when it comes to points. I my be down on points but at least i got table(chair) service @ the bar nearly the whole time @ bf 2010.
Now if i could just wangle a way of getting free drinks......every year.
So as you can imagine i love bf, the music ain't bad either!

Gotta say I'm still no wiser about what the points actually represent.
I'm pretty sure now how they are allocated but what do we do with them ?
If anything I guess.
Cheers, Don

Pointing this out may do harm to my personal points situation ;-) but "bluesfestadmin" is presently sitting in negative territory, so if nothing else, I'm sure it means that a poor points tally is not going to result in being barred from posting.

Hmmm.. I have just come back here after being suspended for three weeks.. not sure why. I noticed that my point count was well into the negative before I was suspended. As far as I know I haven't been rude to anyone on here and most of my posts were about Bluesfest weather. :|

Definitely would luv to see that shot of Greybeard asleep in Jambalaya, he also had lot's of snooze time in the middle of Crossroads, but never lost his pith helmet, what a trooper you are Greybeard, all the best Wazza

i did see someone in a pith helmet,but only a moustache-no beard.please show the photo.
re the posters points,i told my son who is currently at uni studying a science-engineering double,and majoring in maths that he should look into this
points system.
he thinks ive lost the plot.
before you conjure up any NERD ideas about him,hes been raised on bluesfest,i think hes up to 6 now,and always tells me whats happening at the mojo tent.god help him,i think it will take an actuary to figure the points system out.

I don't want to hang up my rock n roll shoes
I get a good time feeling every time I hear those blues.
