Thank you for letting me know there is a Leaderboard.  I am a newbie.... didn't know about it.  I won't worry too much about checking on my "status".  I want to use this as an informative tool.  Although I am competitive, I don't want to spend my time checking my points.  My checking account is the number I care about.

A Rainer with over two million points right next to a Rainer with barely five digits.   This ActiveRain platform is so amazing in the way that EVERYONE can participate and benefit on a level playing field.

I am a competitive person and I for one, find the points system challenging and motivating.  For a newbie, it provides a measuring stick for their AR performance and a validation of their AR accomplishments.

I am proud of and respect the members of AR that have been doing this for many years and have run up impressive point totals over that extended time frame.   I do wish some of them would STOP trivializing the points just because they have so many.   I bet the points meant something when they were just getting started and were doing self evaluation of their own performance.

So, while I commend those long timers who have the BIG totals, would you please, STOP throwing the Pooh, Pooh  at those of us trying to catch up with YOU ?   No offense intended and I hope you don't take it that way.

Points have actual value as you move up to and pass 500,000 points. Afterwards, it is simply a ranking of how many points you have based on your activity, other people's activity and the point award system in effect at various times over the years.

I don't know the numbers but do know the points accummulate fast. I passed 2M about a month ago and it was very quiet. No fanfare, balloons, fireworks or bullhorns. There are more and more millionaires each month. Those that have been in a long time and that remember the old days know points were hard to get back then. Not so today.
