    Points are earned for the following items:

    10 points for submitting an approved cover
    2 points for posting in the forum
    2 points for each information submitted for a comic (date, cover price, contributors, characters, etc.)
    5 points for indexing characters and contributors
    5 points for each of the new social sections (lists, blog, blog comments, picture uploads, etc.)
    10 points for each LCS cataloged in the lcs section
    250 points for each verified referral



    Glad I looked in the Forums! Now I know how to earn points!! THANKS CBR!!!


    I'm also glad I read the forums. I didn't know how I could use the points I had been earning.
    It's never too late to have a happy childhood . . . only now the toys are more expensive.

    There is a missing items forum that you can make the request in.


    Do we get any credit / points for requests to add any missing series to the database? I put out a request for a comic series to be added and it did get added (thanks for that!), but I see no credit or mention in the history for it and honestly, I am not sure if I got any points for it. Just curious about that.

  • No, only indexing gets you points as it is tied to your username.

  • I notice on my profile, it says I have pending points, but no points earned. The pending points gets updated fairly quickly, but when do those points turn into points earned? Is there a time limit as to when that updates or a certain amount of points you must reach first?

    Should add that I have been using the site for a week now, but still only have "pending" points. Loving the website by the way, it's got me looking through my old long boxes to see what else I can add to my collection list!

  • There are a few things at play here.

    1. Pending points remain pending until that night when multiples of 10 are processed. So if you have 12 pending points this morning, then tomorrow you will have 2 pending and 10 earned.
    2. Your "my realm" page is cashed for a week. So if you do not make any changes to your profile, or add/remove books from your collection, etc it might show old data for up to 1 week
