Dark and Light points are awarded for posts you make on the forum that people like or find helpful.  Some like light points (those that lean towards the light side of the force) while others like dark points (those that lean towards the dark side fo the force).  It is in bad form to give points opposite of their preference.

Points for purchases are separate from the forum.  Each dollar you spend is a point.  Each point is worth $0.05.  Points can be applied to future purchases.  I once purchased an entire saber with just points.

Excellent answer, Maestro!

I would like to add that the forum points never expire, but the points awarded for purchase expire one year from the date they are earned, so be sure to use them before then.

How do you award points? is it something Mods do or can anyone point when they find something helpful?

Anyone can award points. Look on the left hand side of the screen and you should see options for light or dark side. If it's in the negative, they prefer dark side. It's one point per person though in a 24 hour time frame til you can award that member another point.

Right below force alignment, there will be a light/dark side points eventually. You have to get out of "force sensitive" rank first.  Sorry for not checking that in your previous post!

The points are for fun, nothing more but there is a troll or two among us. I got you to 5 points on the light side

I suspect I've been a victim of said trolling. I was at -6 yesterday and now -3 today. I'm pretty sure it says Sith in my profile 5 or more times, and I'm a Darth... for the love of the Force; either someone is truly ignorant of how these thing work or I'm getting trolled daily at this point. It took weeks to even get -5 points. Is there some record of who awarded them, or a history somewhere I can view? I swear that'd be helpful if this is a trend. One little PM to the responsible party(s) could fix it, or something like that, if it was an accident anyway. Such behavior would be rather tedious considering I've attempted to contribute legitimately to earn Dark Side points.

Dark Lords of the Sith have ruled collectively and individually for Millenia. One afraid to wield a power is ultimately unworthy of it. Ascendancy into the light has an apex, yet descent into the darkness is endless. The Dark Side can give or take anything, based on user strength. I claim the title of Darth Prodigal Dark Lord of the Sith as my own. Through pain, our Code, and right of combat it is mine; and so shall it be defended. Follow Darth Bane's wisdom. (Only Dark Side Points Preferred.)
