whats the deal with the points that are written under people user names?
do they have any meaning

When you're lost in the rain in Juarez
And it's Eastertime too
And your gravity fails
And negativity don't pull you through
Don't put on any airs
When you're down on Rue Morgue Avenue
They got some hungry women there
And they really make a mess outta you.

They're inversely proportional to the square root of the number of total keystrokes in all of one's postings since the new site opened. Or maybe not...

I don't know what they mean but you should not listen (read) to anyone with lower points as they are obviously inferior beings.
In fact I shouldn't be replying to you for this very reason.

Funny guys.

Actually, the real meaning of these points is an indicator of your blues music knowledge and appreciation. Its baseline is calculated by the total number of BluesFest day tickets you've ever purchased and then offset by your posting frequency here on this board. It also factors in how many times you've mentioned how good Joe Bonamassa is, as well as any mention of Duane Allman. Negative points are given for mentioning young pop artists (I won't do it here...)

It is rumoured that the Bluesfest admin have an "X" factor that they also apply, based on some sort of blues vibe thing they get from your username, but so far no one has cracked the code on that one.

Hope this helps.

The more positive points you have,the less you have upset the moderator.

The more negative points you have,the more you have upset the moderator.

Thank you.

Mr Bongo another way to get lots of negative points is to post on a controversial thread that gets wiped in its entirity.

Then you go down with the instigator.

The points system is all completely without bias.

This is clearly evidenced by the fact the Bluesfest Administration currently has minus 190 points.

Not far behind you.
