Like so many others on this site...

...i'm just doing this for the points.  "and what are the points good for?" my wife will inevitably ask. 
 
man, i don't know.  they're points.  they're good for keeping score.  i've been collecting them in one form or another for all my life. 
 
the grades i got in school?  points.  the performance reviews at work? points.  and now i collect points on the internet. 
 
it's a brave new world, people.

I remember when Gamespot went to a level system.  Just like then, I'm annoyed that I have to start fresh despite being on the site so long.

I wish I could get rid of the bar on the bottom and put it back on top. I don't really care about points.

Also, how in the hell do I not have the quests completed for S-ranking stuff?  I mean come on.

They said that will be given to you once the achievements resync.

Wow, quit bitching they're just points.

I've never really realised I we have such an obsession with collecting useless points... Anyway, I wish the bar was up the top. It doesn't feel right down the bottom for some reason.

I want it at the top because on Chrome when something is loading it will block the bar.

@ShaunassNZ: Yup, I noticed that immediately lol. But then I noticed a cute little X that I can press and can ignore the whole points thing! :)

When you hit level 10 you get an honorary meeting with Jeff Gerstmann and a check for $100.

@ShaunassNZ: i use Chrome, so i have the same issue.  having the bar at the top would be great.

I say meh to points and quests. It will go unused by me just like the trivia, guides, and blogs... maybe not blogs.

Why is there hate on this thing, I like the idea and never even knew about it.
