Revive 'Points System'

This is a suggestion for re-activating Mint Community.

It seems Mint Community languished lately..., Why?
I guess because 'Points System' has been dead for over 1 month.

I know we community members should do activities for contributing to Mint distro and Mint Community, not for only getting points.
But it is the fact 'Points System' had been encouraging members to do activities in this community.

So I would suggest 'Points System' should be revived as soon as possible for re-activating Mint Community.

@compuman2004:
Thank you for your comments which cheer me up.
However I think you are one of users of consequence in this site, because you are justice and ethics in Mint Community.

Dear Moderators:

Since Points System was resumed and now it works as before, would you please mark this post as 'Implemented'?

It's just like in Formula I. We all go after a pace car. Nobody can pull ahead. Maybe it's a warm-up lap?:)

@compuman2004:
I think you stated very well.

By the way, unfortunately nothing has happened, but fortunately this suggestion has not been deleted yet.

Unfortunately nothing has happened as you said, so I feel sadness.

I'm sorry I replied too late.
Thank you for your comments and support!
And I completely agree with your opinions.
I also think Points System had been working well for this community.

Points systems are not required for the operation of an online community imo, but they do make a massive difference. Usually for the better.

Humans tend to be competitive, even when co-operating. Humans also respond well to a little "attaboy" for what they do and a points system does fulfill both tasks very nicely.

@sunewbie:
Thank you for your comments and support.

Mint Community has 'Users' module which is linked with 'Points System', and Mint Forums doesn't have something like 'Users' module.

Truthfully it was interesting for me to see Users' module everyday, however doing activities in community is not a competition.

@Tonya:
You are welcome, and Thank you for your comments and support.
Yes, 'Points System' is important for our Community as you said.

@kazztan0325 
Thank you very much for beginning to talk about this matter.
"Points System" seemed to be rather important for our Community.
And therefore I also think it should be resumed as soon as possible.

@compuman2004 and @cc11rocks:
Thank you for your comments and support!

It was interesting to me that 'XP Points' reflect my activities, and it let me more and more be active in community.

Points System is just a little bit of fun, but I believe it has the power to activate this community and make this site be kept exciting as @compuman2004 said.
