the TOS say that you need to stay active on the forum to keep your hosting account and that the formula may change at any time..
What's the formula right now?
How do I know that I'm active enough or not?
I think that the points is a measure of how active you are. Your points can't go down to 0 or you will be considered inactive.
The maximum amount of points available per day is 45 so the maximum amount of unactivity before your account is deleted is 45. This carries the risk of forgeting to come back and having no points and having hosting removed.
The popint of the system is to not just post a few long posts a day, but to remain active and post on subjects that interest you enough to post on.
Yes, one point is deducted each day.
Yes longer posts receive more points, up to a maximum of 2.5 points.
All points are reset daily to 45.00
Hence, the point is not a few long posts every few weeks, but a few posts every day or every other day.
It is called a communtiy for a reason.
