Introducing Gear Live Points


Posted by Andru Edwards - Categories:


We’ve been working on a way to recognize you readers who participate here on our network of sites at Gear Live, and we are happy to announce the launch of Gear Live Points. In a nutshell, Points are awarded to users whenever they take any sort of interactive action on Gear Live. We think it’s a fun way to spice up your daily visits to the site.

You earn points for all the following actions:

  • Becoming a member: 100 points
  • Upload a member photo: 50 points
  • Choose or upload an avatar: 25 points
  • Posting a blog comment: 1 point
  • Posting a gallery comment: 1 point
  • Assign a forum signature: 10 points
  • Posting a forum topic: 2 points
  • Posting a forum reply: 1 point
  • Receiving a forum reply: 1 point
  • Vote in a poll: 3 points

You must be logged in to earn points, and you can see the total amount of points you’ve earned right at the top of all pages. We are coming up with some cool things you will be able to do with your points, so stay tuned for that.

To kick off the launch of Gear Live Points, we are running a contest - our HP HDX Dragon giveaway. Good luck to all participants!

NOTE: Those found abusing Gear Live Points (like posting excessive comments/forum posts that don’t say anything or contribute to the conversation) will suffer a loss of points. This policy is at Gear Live’s sole discretion.

Good work Andru!

This is a very welcome addition to Gearlive and will invite more people into the community.

Everytime I try to upload a photo, it never works. I think there’s some type of bug.

Dude, what’s with all the wrestling avatars? wink

Okay, so uploading an image is failing for you…are you respecting the size limits?

Yes and just to inform you, a few others and experiencing the same problems.

I am glad that the points value has been posted. I dont suppose you would post who is in the lead or where everyone stands at this point? It would be interesting to know since some of these people have been in here for a while now.

i did not want to change the subject but what polls are you talking about. i only saw and that was in march 24.

Yes I am facing the same problems! To be more precise am listing them here:

1] Cannot update avatar, photo. I was uploading a 150x150, 81 KB file but no dice :|

2] Sometimes when clicking on a forum, I get the error: You are not authorized to view this forum :S

3] Some forums do not open giving some silly error

4] Please please please for heavens sake dont judge the posts like it was done on Notebooks.com :S According the admin of that site, Spammers = winners

5] Sometimes the site doesnt display properly in FFox….. :S But when I opened it in IE, it displayed fine! Any idea why?

I’m experiencing my points dropping down to 0, to not displaying at all, to coming back. Is there a delay on the points update?

I still cannot post in the forums! Error that I am receiving:

The following errors were encountered
You are not authorized to view posts in this forum.

After reading your post Andru, i’ve uploaded a member photo & installed a sig but my points didn’t increase.Will they be credited later ? I thought they are instant.No worries though. smile And yes, this looks more like a WWE thread. tongue laugh
