    Same here - I've only issued one anitpoint (positive) about one week ago and it shows 0% for both my positive and negative antipoints.

    Hmm. Weird. I would guess that, as a newer member, your antipoints aren't being given enough weight to go through the system quite yet. That is, in the particular cases you assigned antipoints, they might have had no recordable effect (yet). <shrug>

    I deleted my original post about this cause I read in one of the threads that described the Antipoints when they first started being used that one of the ways of preventing abuses was that your Antipoint assignments didn't become valid until you had been posting for at least a week. At least that was the way I understood it..

    Well, there are several factors that come into play when determining whether your AntiPoint assignment is considered valid. They include:

    How long you've been a member
    How many posts you've made
    What your AntiPoint total is
    What the AntiPoint total of the person you're assigning points to is
    How much time you've spent surfing AntiOnline

    and a few other uber-secret ones

    Once all of those factors are stuck into our AntiPoints algo., the system determines whether or not to let your AntiPoints count, and also, how many points you actually assign per "approve" or "disapprove".

    I hope this helps explain things a big more. Since this isn't a bug, i'm going to go ahead and close this thread.........
