Wow I am way way too lazy so I admire your commitment!!!

Which equals 22 points per day. It took a while....
If a concerted & diligent effort was made from day one? I calculate it would take about 15 months @ 22 points per day to reach 10,000 points.

Not bad if it gets you a free snowboard!!


Congrats on the new ride!

Well, I've been a member since March, 2010 and was posting regularly for 3 or 4 years (2 points for logging in, 1 point per post up to 5 posts), then became semi-regular, then non-existent for a short time, then came back and embarked on my quest to reach 10,000 points. The method to my madness over the past couple months:

2 points for logging in
1 point per post, 5 posts per day
5 points for a review, 3 reviews per day

Which equals 22 points per day. It took a while but it was never really a goal to reach 10,000 points until a few months ago when I realized I was fairly close. The community there used to be very active but since The House took over a few years ago there are fewer members participating. Very few these days.

ctoma I love my new Lib Tech T.Rice Pro that I got for the low, low price of $9.95 for shipping and handling... well, that and all the time I spent on sierrasnowboards.com/trusnow.com to reach the free snowboard level of 10,000 points.

There,....! I'm glad this is finally settled! And lest we forget,....

I don't have facts to back me up but I'd guess they weren't welcome at the beach back in the day either.
Ah, thanks, that makes sense. I tend to forget that it's only few decades ago, probably not enough time passed to get young generations stoked for something which formerly was forbidden.
