I thought you were going to drop this down eventually? Are people still adding them?

Handful every now and then.

But I will make it 10 to be more inline with the rest.

This is all fine and dandy but for those who joined a little later it is nearly impossible to earn points by adding covers. I will probably never earn enough point to be able to download my collection via CSV once entered. hhhhmmmm.....gotta wonder if I should continue or not.. I mean 7,500 points?? WOW. I will never make that. I guess its on to plan B

You could donate $10. 10,000 points. I know it's a bit much for some people, but it's like, 3 books nowadays. Well worth it.

Yup...a one time $10 donation would cover it.

I never could find the original post that stated that. Welcome to the club!

7500 points come quicker than you think. I use this handy report all the time:
http://comicbookrealm.com/report/missing
This will show you which comics are missing information such as covers, dates, prices, etc. You can fill in what you can and just watch the points accumulate!

And don't be discouraged that there are not enough covers out there to upload. There are still tons of books out there that need covers. Just use that report i linked and it will show you. Most often it will be TPBs and Hard Covers

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

What do you mean download? So much I have no clue about. I have donated twice. I didn't know we could use it for something. I just figured all the work that goes into this deserved a bit of help.

You can download (export) your collection as often as you want. You just have to unlock this feature...either by donating or earning points.

How long should it take for the points to show up in our profile? I added a few dates for the She-Hulk 2004-05 series, but the points didn't show up right away.

I'm also glad I read the forums. I didn't know how I could use the points I had been earning.

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
