I have tried to find some information on these and can't find it anywhere. I'd just like to see what badges I can earn and what the points do, if anything.  Does it affect my poster ranking?

    Silas is lying.

    Once you get all the badges you get to choose between a free PS4 or a mountain bike.

    Have you not yet received your bound credits? I thought the first threshold was at 150 points.

    So then poster ranking is just a measure of the number of posts you've made? There a page for that too?

    It's the number of likes, agrees, or lols you get on your posts.

    My site will remain up, but will not be maintained. The repository will continue to have scripts added to it if I decide to play another game. Maybe I'll see you around in Starmourn!

    Eld, in this post, gave an excellent summary of the points system.

    To summarize the summary, there are three kinds of reactions: positive ("like," "LOL," and I believe "agree"), negative ("WTF" and, of course, "abuse"), and neutral ("disagree"). Posts and users each have their own points count. Positive reactions give both the post and the user 1 point. Negative reactions subtract one point from both post and user, and the flag reaction additionally brings the post to the attention of the moderators (so use it wisely). Neutral reactions don't add or subtract any points. Additionally, we all-powerful moderators have a sixth type of reaction, called "promote," which we use on posts that are shining examples of informative and constructive contributions (or just whenever we really like a post, either way). These add five points to the post and three to the user. Some badges additionally give points, I believe.

    These point totals are important, because when a post reaches -5 points, it is automatically hidden, because presumably a bunch of people found it really shocking, non-constructive, or just plain abusive. When a post reaches 5 points, it is highlighted in a lovely shade of gold because it's such an excellent post. It's subtle, but noticeable. As for users, when they gain points, they gain * symbols, up until 5, at which point they begin gaining @ symbols. These are purely cosmetic... or are they?

    Can we get badges for WTFs and Disagrees?

    They can be ugly red badges of shame, but I've earned those pieces of flair.

    One badge at least already exists existed for WTFs.

    ETA: On checking the dates, it may have been discontinued. Salik earned the 25 WTFs badge too, and nobody else has that.

    Oh well, suck it losers.

    Someone made a post asking that the WTF badges be discontinued. Sadly, he got 5 Likes :'(
    Tvistor: If that was a troll, it was masterful.

    How many points do you need to get to the various * and @ levels?

    The perverse part of that being that the X WTFs badges were worth positive points.

    PS4, definitely PS4, who would pick a mountain bike?
    Surely you can get a mountain biking game for your PS4.
