  • That's what the "crazy for credits" section is for.

  • It seems to be what it's about now. When I posted a complaint earlier about the new credits system and how it's more of a game now than a support site, I got a lot of negative responses. Most moms seem to be liking that CM is turning into a game/social network just for fun. They don't even seem to mind all the posts that ask for bump or credits.

    BTW, to the ladies who comment about my level and credits being high even though I don't like the system, my credits are high because I'm still answering the serious questions like I always did. I ask personal questions anon, and I've been awarded best answer a lot.

  • To thriving....I think the credits/points whatever you want to call them, just make it more fun being on here. The spam and the bashing have gone down SOOOOOO much because the anon answer feature has to be earned back, instead of being given, and now everything is a lot more lighthearted.
    When I ask questions for points, I make them legitimate questions, that I would want to know the answers to. If I want more credits/points then I post in the crazy for credits section that CM has provided for those who want to participate in the "game".

  • First off... Why don't YOU actually ask a question... The answers section is NOT for your rants!

    Second off... The Crazy for Credits is for just that - people who want more credits... As long as the question is in the right section, they are doing exactly what that section is for...

    Third off... If you don't like it, go to Groups or stick to individual Answers forums rather than the new or popular questions.
