Do you still receive 1000 points every month for having a premium membership?
I haven't received that 1000 points in awhile, so I'm a little curious as to whether this feature still exists.

Once you get past 500, CR points are like Drew Carey on "Whose line" (it doesn't really matter).

Presumably, but like asharka says, they don't serve much purpose, so I don't really pay attention.

I seem to still get points every month. I think. So probably.

I don't even know what the heck they are. So I've got x number of cr points. So what?

Says! Man, if a person accidently one word, it changes the entire meaning...

You need 500 to be able to create a new thread outside of the help section, or to create a group, if you are into that. After that they are "pointless"...

Haha, sorry. That still took me about 20 seconds to figure out what was wrong, even though you pointed it out.

I know that they're pointless. But I like them. I just like the idea of accumulating points for being active.

It'd be nice if you could exchange them for something.

IE: X points gets you a free month of premium or something

Nice thought, but since you can also get points for posting, commenting and responding to polls, you might well imagine the amount of pointless spamming that could cause in the forums. Being able to get badges or other items on your profile might be kind of nice, though, or even something like being able to add a title to your name (like the mods have) but I could see how even that could cause a certain type of person to become a spam king...

One way to prevent that would be to separate points for membership from points from activity, but that just creates extra coding work for CR for what (in my opinion) seems like a minimal return.

It would also create more work for customer service when the points for membership system breaks (as it seems to do from time to time), because people would be upset about not getting them, rather than simply curious why they weren't.
