It has literally taken me 4 days to earn 15 points. I am not as active as many, but in this 4 days, I have posted a few articles and viewed many people's articles as well as commenting on some of what I viewed.
It borders on ridiculous that Gather even advertises as having a point system if this is how it works these days. My wife loves it here and is more active than I am, but I just can't believe how it has changed in the past year.
I sure hope they haven't cut their own throats with these changes.
