How does it work?
When you Signup, you receive 10 points. These points can be used on any link you choose. You can use as many points as you have. Your point count is printed next to your pseudonym (username). To earn more points, post a link. For every 2 points you receive on a link, you will be credited with 1 point. Also, every 20 hours, you will be able to collect a random amount of points in the interactions tab.
How do I post a link?
When you sign in, there will be an yellow button with a +(plus) on it. When clicked, it will expand a form to post your link. Place the URL in the link field. If you have something to say about it, put your words in the comment box. Finally, there will be a Point name box. Instead of just a "Like", you can change your button to say anything you want under 20 characters. When you're ready, click submit!
How do I know how many points I've given to a link?
Next to each point button, there is a number. This number shows how many points that link has. If you click that number, it will show you how many points out of the total that you've given. For example, if you have clicked the button 4 times to give the link 4 points and the total points on the link is 23, clicking the total number will display 4 / 23.
