Over time, a few have asked about trophy points.

they get assigned by number of posts and your activity.
Eventually, it caps out at 113 for some amount of activity for a poster.

I always regarded it as 'snowflake' participation awards, and never saw the need to go in and recreate a bunch of levels in order for the points to go to the heavens.

To what end I ask?

We have your join date, your number of posts, likes, likes received, etc.

Like good grief man, does it really matter????

Hopefully this explains my position on them, whereas you guys as a whole may have a different view that should be addressed. By all means, bring it forward.

Trophy Wife comes to mind....run, runaway.....
Now now, let's don't be so hasty sir. Let us see what she can do with this produce first and make a decision based upon how much veggie remains visible.

I purposely skipped at least 2 days of school every year after the 9th grade when I found out they gave a perfect attendance award in high school which you had to claim by walking up on stage in front of all the other idiots.

I'm in the 4 mouse club. I owe millions for keyboards and monitors. My status should be reflected by at least one more point than the common ilk

During the filming of "Top Gun", Tony Scott asked the Navy people about "The Trophy". Where is the top pilot's trophy? This is a competition, right? It was explained to him, lol, that if they kept score or had a trophy that nobody would graduate. Everyone would crash and die. Because these guys are so ultra competitive they would crash into each other to "win".

For that explanation alone I should be given at least one more point than everyone else
