HI all, maybe some members know these answers, or maybe we need @ankerofficial to respond, but I’m curious about a few things regarding points. All my info comes from the community “how to win” page. I’m not really counting points precisely, but sometimes I feel like I should have gotten more points in a given day and I’m wondering if any of these might be the cause:
When does the “day” start? In the how to win page many of the awards are restricted on a “per day” basis. Presumably, I could post two threads at 11:59pm and then two more at 12:01 am and get 40 points. My question is, then, which time zone determines when days start and end? Is it midnight in Shenzhen? London? New York?
Do members get points for replying to their own threads or just the threads of others? I often have conversations with people in my threads and it seems like I don’t get points for those. Is that true?
Is the “get replied to” action only on threads you start or within other threads where someone replies to your reply, either by quoting you or by clicking the “reply” link on your post?
I have the sense that some other members may be interested in the answers to these questions as well. Thanks for any insight anyone has?
Exactly. Specifically when days end and begin, whether we get points for replying to our own thread, and in which context a reply is counted as a reply for points.
Edit: Well I just checked before and after replying to this thread and did not earn any points, so the answer to question #2 is that, no, you don’t get points for replying to your own discussion thread.
Totally agreed @Arwen ! The major difference here is that these points are worth a form of currency (PowerBucks) and the more you have the better off you’ll be when it comes to powerdraws, contests, etc… that require this currency. Anker is doing this soooo right because it keeps the interest of forum members and at the same time getting feedback on products.
