The member system has been introduced to help curb the trolling epidemic we faced. Everyone joining this Forum for the first time start out with 0 Points, it does not matter how long you have been on the Sims forums, you can increase your points to become a Member. Points are seen on the profile, in a grey box on the left side.

You need 50 Points, 30 Posts and have an account older than 24 hours to become a Member.

You can earn points by:
1. Earning badges - here are all the badges you can currently earn
2. When someone LIKES or Awesomes your post you get
- 1 Point for Like

Being a new member has certain disadvantages.
1. New members can't post images.
2. New members can't quote normally, they get arrows instead of the box.
3. New members cannot post links.
4. New members can not add signatures.
5. New members can not compose messages, they can however reply to them.
6. New members can not have a profile picture.

Zagadoo is Simlish for Disagree. This button doesn't earn nor deduct points, neither does it earn badges.
