Points and Frih$ are disabled in the Introduction section.
Wherever points are disabled points don't show at all, it's a known bug I believe.
It's not a bug, I am pretty sure it was meant to be that way.
Having them not visible is a way to show that point and Frih$ are disabled. If they were still viewable, we would have no way of knowing whether points are disabled or not.
I am agree with Ghost. This is simplest way to see where are disabled points. But Asap170 is right because bellow Introductions forum is not displayed *Points are disabled in this forum.* like in other where are disabled (Jokes, Funny Pictures).
It would look better to have:
There to show that points are disabled there rather than:
(It would also be nice if the 'posting successful' screen was the phpbb default for forums without points...)
This would be a lot of trouble for a small gain though, so I don't expect it to happen.
