Note: Current activity points are likely incorrect.  I don't care.  :P  If you do something (buy/sell a horse, enter a race, etc) in the future and don't get the appropriate points, let me know.  But I'm not going to spend hours fixing old points.

READ THE THREAD BEFORE ASKING QUESTIONS.

Well I entered a bunch of races last night and it didn't seem to do anything to my points.  I'm assuming that's a bug.  Or maybe I'm missing something?

You have been in the game more than 2 years, therefore you don't get points for entering races anymore.

Ah, sorry about that.  I'm sure I read that at one point, it just slipped my mind.  Thanks!

No prob.  Points breakdown is in the FAQ, and on page 1 of this thread.  :)

Basically, all the points that everyone has accumulated up to now has some margin of error to it. Those totals will stand, however. Please understand that with revamping the race code and adding all the cool searchable goodies and other updates to FF, making sure everybody's gotten the right amount of points for their transactions has been a pretty low priority. From now on, though, the totals should be fine.

It's not wrong to report errors in the code so Shanthi can fix them...but in this case she just doesn't have the time to go back, research however many points people are supposed to have, and update them. Please, guys, let it go. :) In the long run we'll all earn points aplenty to get our own custom-designed ponies, I am sure. :)

Edited to add: Whoops, thought I was replying at another point in the thread...not trying to beat a dead subject or anything, truly. ;)

Thank you for putting that so coherently (and politely!), Nan.  :)  It's been a long day and I'm physically (and mentally) exhausted. ;)  Off to bed I go...

If find watching the activity points amusing.  :D  Since I have 6 points for entering races (true, but not the right number  ;)) and 6 for selling horses (I've only bought a horse). I've read a billion posts about people reporting this; I'm not reporting. I just find it amusing.  ;D

When you redeem your points, how long should it take before you receive the new horse?  ??? I redeemed some points over 2 maybe 3 weeks ago and nothing yet.

It should be immediate...it should say "Redeeming your horse" (or Creating your horse, or something), and then refresh the page to show a link to your horse.

I got the Creating your horse part, but then it never refreshed and never showed up with a link to my horse.

It probably has to do with the settings you chose.  PM me with what horse option(s) you wanted and I'll create the horse for you.

Man, I remember when snow got me excited, even the thought of it! Now I'm up here in Alaska and the snow fell in early October and hasn't left since. It's still pretty though, just not as cool as I once thought it was. lol

Everyone in the midwest have fun with the snow and for those of you still in school I wish you the best of luck for a snow day or two in school next week! ;)

Us Ohio kids are waiting for the snow to actually stick. Well, I guess I lied, because some of Ohio is having some good lake effect snow, but where I am, all we have is sprinkles.  Put a spoon under your pillow, wear your pajamas backwards and inside out.. or whatever those myths say.   ;D

Heehee. I can't wait for the snow, but I can certainly wait for the cold. Burrr. The wind chill today was about 6 degrees. And at my school was have a disconnected annex.. it was cooold to walk between the buildings!  :P

Anyway, sorry I'm rambling about irrevelant things on this post.  ;)
