It seems to me changing my profile added more points than following the links. I added myself to the map and that didn't seem to do much either. That said I did gain some points following all the tips in the guide. Orange only need a handful of points to gain the lead, so I'm having another go at trying to earn some from somewhere smile

Thanks for your referral clicks whoever you were.

wow, mh3 revealed with no info about using "precious points".

does this mean that, unlike Oblio's song dealing with real points,
this discussion has really been in the land of never-never ?

After completing the above, posting topics and creating threads are the best way of maintaining a steady point increase.  Make sure your topics are aimed towards the thread, have length, and make a point. Also, try not to make reckless threads such as "I ate potato salad yesterday...".



Some members have also stated that redoing the above gives them a slightly better point increase than the previous days so try that as well.

Another reason for getting an "avatar" is because johnred told us it would help, we don't know how or why & we may never know, but it is his game!

Bump to highlight the Guide. Points are 'frozen' meaning we can't see them but I believe the MH counters are still adding. So please post a pic, play with missions, update your profile tweetblast.

There are still points to gain and loot(from missions and tweeting) and 2 $2 discounts still to be had for low pointers. High pointers - well just continue to be good citizens and help the new Orange folk.

We are so awesome!!!

Hey ollie! You still walking around here Nekkid! Go get an avatar and strut your stuff!

Wait ! I just noticed I lost my orange glow! Maybe if you load a new avatar you lose your team designation. WTF?

Help! What happened?

(Hold off ollie...)

Nevermind...the orange designation was just off while I was typing.

Back to the original post. Go find an avatar please so all ORANGES are fully dressed for the party!

Email your friends and family, but most definitely not spamming of any kind! As for the points, be patient grasshopper!

So Mooey with the points thing just about to be revealed what I & maybe others want to know is:
How did you get this info? was it passed to you through the directorate? Watching to see what worked?

As I came to this quite late I missed out on a lot of the preamble, though I'm grateful to you for these posts.

It just feels like the right time for you to reveal all.
