I was thinking about getting a board and i noticed that you can write a review about wanting something and in the review i made it fairly clear that i was going to purchase the product and adjust the review after i used it a bit. but its just getting bad reviews...what can i do about that?

yea theoretically the little box is there to check that you are getting it or want it, but what makes a good review is actual information about a product. Its one thing if you demo'd the board or bindings, and then checked the "i want it/gonna buy it" box, but its another thing to just look at it online, or in the store and then write a review about it. This is basically writing a shitty review, because you have no personal experience with the product.
SOOOOO if you wrote a bunch of reviews about things that you wanted, but had no experience, then yea sure, I bet they were flagged as spam.

For the future, please only write reviews about products that you have used and have personal experience with.

my computer tends to freeze up just when i post, and i'll accidently post the comment twice, if over time this adds up to 30 posts, does this mean i'll end up not being able to gain points for forum posts?

Ive noticed this on my computer as well... it just takes a minute. A couple times Ive even gotten an error msg, but when I go back and click on the forums, it has posted. So I would just say let it go and eventually it should post.

posting random crap on the forums is the best way. spamming reviews is also a quick way to get points.

By posting awesome product reviews. For example...  Sick board! I really want one! Five stars! Do that three times a day on random products and you will amass infinite points.

seriously this quote thing is busted...

anyways, to get points, you can just simply log in everday, you get 2 points.. posting in the forum will get you points and doing reviews will give you points. making purchases will also get you points.
click on your name in top right corner to get into your profile then click on your level to see your points breakdown.

I just got a point for helping you out!

Exactly what jhoang6 said.

Daily login, good and reliable reviews on products, purchasing products, and relevant comments on the forums all accumulate points. Avoid posting single word responses that aren't relevant to the topic because it'll probably end up as spam. :D

Is there any way to earn points more quickly? I see some people have 1000s of points. Do they actually earn their points in the same way as we earn ours?

The Member Points system is in place to REWARD members who are active, participate in the site, and contribute to the community.  Its not just suppose to be a way for people to get free stuff.  More often than not if you try to cheat the system people will notice, pretty much everything is transparent on the forum.  I would recommend you take a look at some of your reviews, the reviews are meant to help customers make an educated purchase NOT just a means of getting points.

I don't understand why this thread is still active. The same crap is being said over and over, through 10pages.

Ok, hopefully this will clear this up, as we seem to have a few threads a month lately on this topic and it seems that it's never quite understood.

Here is the breakdown for levels:
POINTS      LEVEL                BENEFIT
200           Ski Bum                additional 10% off anything & Free Sierra Snowboard brand Tshirt
1,500        Local                    additional 15% off anything &  Free Goggle (up to $100 value)
3,000        Instructor             additional 18% off anything & Free Binding (up to $200 value)
10,000      Board Member      additional  20% anything & Free Snowboard (up to $400 value)

These are the ways to earn points:
- Daily Log in (one per day)
- Legitimate* Reviews (3 points per review, capped at 3 reviews per day)
- Legitimate** Posts (1 point per post capped at 5 posts per day)
- Purchase Points (1 point per $10 spent with no cap)

*By 'legitimate' we mean that it needs to be worth of your five point gain.  We are looking for reviews that will help future customers get an understanding of personal experiences with this product.  Please make sure that you list details that are essential for those looking to buy.
In terms of post points, please put in an effort to become an integral part of the community.  One word posts and posts with pretty much zero relevance to the topic at hand are not generally worthy.

If your review is 'flagged' by five members, or one staff or expert member, it is deleted and your points are deducted from your point total.  If you have ten reviews flagged and deleted, you will no longer receive points for reviews from that point forward.


**For legit posts, we're looking for posts that actually add to the conversation or content at hand in the thread you're posting in.  If you're only posting in a game thread (ie. This or That) your posts will be flagged as well.  Please do your part in becoming a useful part of the community and you won't run the risk of having a problem with this. 
Once you've had 30 of your posts flagged, you will no longer be able to post in the forums, so please post with content in mind.


On another topic of points, here's some info on the Points for Purchase topic:
- Points for purchases has been working again since the 18th of March.
- Nighthawk will be adding them to the recent points list on your profile as it has been previously not shown.
- Points for purchases prior to the 18th that were not awarded will be retroactively added soon (we do not know an exact date on this yet).


The points were implemented and worked for quite some time, but stopped working when we relaunched the site on October 12, 2009.    Previous to that, the points worked from when we first implemented that aspect of points until that date, so there won't be any other points added prior to then.

So, just to be clear.  Anyone who made purchases between October 12, 2009 and March 18, 2010 will have the points added to their account that the purchases were made on when the programmers get the chance to work on it.


...for those who fail at reading the whole thread (let alone the 1st page)
can we close this up now?
