Many times I have wanted to commende7f0a53e160521fd82bbfb3a1a922bd4-d5l0u2d.pngsomeone and give them a Status Point but to no avail.  Either the icon to proceed was gone or when the icon was pushed nothing happened......  Is there a limit on giving points to others? Is it me being a Rookie and needing education on how to? or is it What?   It would be nice to offer a compilment on a reular basis.  Your thought will be read and applied to give credit where credit is due.  As usual: Thank You In Advance.

    You can only award points in threads you create and mark as being questions, and you can only award two Helpful ratings and one Solved in each thread.

    The folks who have been here the longest don't give a hoot about "status". They're here to help others when they have the time. A person posting their very first response can be every bit as accurate and helpful as someone who has been with these forums for 10 years. Don't let a person's level be a judge of their abilities.

    Very wise comment this.

    The kindest and most dedicated attention I ever had came from someone who described himself as a newby.

    "No one wants my answer".

     

    Be aware that even the most senior conributors answer knowing they have about a 25% chance of getting points.  Some have very long and detailed answers prepared and can drop them in quickly, increasing those odds.

     

    But the content of the answer, the respect (or lack thereof) you show, and the OP's (original poster) disposition figures in.  Some even will give the points to the person with fewer points even if all answers have the same content.

     

    This is about helping, not about gathering points most quickly.

     

    Aside from a couple of levels (like level 2 that lets you set a custom avatar), or level 6 (which lets you into a different dicussion forum) few levels mean anything in the long run.
