    AntiPoints Assignment

    In the last four days I have given positive points to three members for their posts. Each member has contacted me as the points showed up as negative points.

    Now I know, I'm a "newbie" by AO standards, but I sure as hell know how to select a radio button and click submit.

    What gives?

    Did their points show up as Red or Grey. Like you said, you are a newbie, you may not have enough 'status' yet to assign Green (positive) points. If that's the case, the people you give out points to will receive Grey points (which are neither positive or negative).

    As far as I know, one was grey. Not sure about the other two, other than the showed up as negative points.

    So - lemme get this straight, if I don't have enough status, when I assign points to somebody they show up as negative?

    They are not negative, but they are not positive either, they are neutral. JP did this (I think) because of abuse in the early days of the AP system.

    I checked out my status and as of yesterday it apepars I can now give out Green points...

    My AntiPoint status shows I have given out no negative points, so I guess it was my unfamiliarity with the system. But the question still remains... why did each user contact me about negative points assignment? The points must have shown up as negative to warrant or facilitate the contact.

    The short answer is, the people that you assigned points to, likely don't understand the system either.
