    Noticed a little while ago (around 9PM EST) that my 'trophy points' have disappeared. Previously, my user banner on the main page showed my Messages, Likes, and (83) Trophy Points; now it's only showing Messages and Likes. The Trophy Points count has also disappeared from the pop-up box which appears when clicking on my user name. Any ideas what happened? I know it doesn't mean much in the grand scheme of things, but stuff like this makes me curious, soooooooooo.......... :idea: :dunno: :crazy:

    The faux gold finish on mine started flaking off, so I'm having them re-plated. I should have them back in the trophy points case soon.

    We are now collectively known as Oblio and have no points. We just have to find a Dog Named Arrow and we're all set.

    Cheers,
    James

    It was probably a politically correct thing. It is just not fair that some members got more points just because they earned them. The mods are in the process of confiscating everyone's point and they will be redistributed soon.

    I got a couple of these as a kid when playing tee-ball. I thought it was pretty stupid.

    The trophy points here were at least a bit more meaningful, if a bit limited (maximum of 113, IIRC) and oddly set up. It seemed like a neat aspect of the new forum software when it was first instituted. Anyway, I started this thread because I noticed their disappearance, and wondered if there was a reason for it... :dunno:

    Perhaps a trophy point suffers from atrophy if you don't use it???

    ...And now they appear to be back...

    This calms down my quasi-OCD, at the least. Though I have no idea why they disappeared in the first place, and I still don't care much about having them except that I expect to see them in my name banner. So..........o_O :oops: :wtf:

    What's the point in them- doesn't everyone end up on 113 points eventually?
