1 Bump

Am I the only one that thinks asking questions for a "points game" is dumb?

Like: Post and I'll vote you up? 10th poster gets best answer. Just for fun bump me.

Seems dumb to me and an abuse of the system... I thought this was supposed to be about asking and answering peoples questions on playing and inventing games to earn points,

Seems like a popular thing to do though so I guess I'm just a stick in the mud.

  • I go on here once a day usually at night like always and give my honest opinions no matter if there is a point systom or not. I have not changed my ways even with the new point syston so I really don't care if they score for points. Yeah I think it is kinda dumb but I have noticed there are no bashers which is always nice....

  • It's like any other game. At first I was opposed just because I thought it would spam the system, and it has, but I think the mood around here is a lot lighter lately. Nobody is calling each other people names, fighting over issues and bashing as much.
    It's basically a way for CM to get people to come online to their site more often. CM created the monster.

  • Ah, I guess there is always going to be someone who abuses the system. I did just ask on about whether or not you get points for anon, but I was really wanting to know. I'm sure no matter what they did to try to weed out people doing this or that, there would always be something else come along...

  • No, CM does too. They're making a special section just to hide all those questions in so you don't have to read them unless you want to.

  • What else are we supposed to do? And I like CAGirl14's thought that it has lessened the bashing and lightened the mood!!

  • I agree that the whole "point system" is kinda dumb, but I guess if the bashing gets minimized, then who am I to argue? :)

  • You're right, there are a lot of these questions being asked, but CM decided to create a point system so members NEED to earn their anonymous button back. Welcome to first grade!!! If I'm going to be treated like a first grader I'm going to act like one. I liked having the anonymous option and I want it back. I wasn't the one who ruined it in the first place so why should I have to play this game right just to get it back! Afterall, it is just a game.
    I will say that it is a lot more positive around here! I rather answer questions like that rather than, "Am I pregnant, How much do you get in food stamps per month, My boyfriend ran a train on this whore should I still date him, Why didn't you breastfeed, are you uneducated etc.....
