    Posting and participating in discussions is the best way to get points. They come naturally as you become active on the forums. :)

    The only way is through likes and badges. Unfortunately most of the badges now take a while to earn and some also take luck (like the lol/like count badges) The only easy one to earn on your own before being a member is the name dropper which I see you earned.

    So the best way really is to just keep posting and hope people drop a like or lol. The TS4 General Discussion section is the busiest so it's probably the one most likely to get you likes if you post over there. You might get some here in off topic too though.

    I feel you, because I'm in the same boat. I am 24 points away (because you need 50, right?), halfway to go...
    I gave you a like, even though you didn't ask for any :)

    You could try posting in this thread:

    http://forums.thesims.com/en_US/discussion/800565/what-are-the-best-worst-one-liner-jokes-you-have#latest

    I've run out of jokes to post now but it was amazing to me to find that so many people shared my silly sense of humour. If I tell those jokes in real life I'm lucky if I get a groan - usually it's a sideways glance .

    I'm always happy to read the jokes other people post - so fire away :)

    Be funny or likable when you post in order to gain likes and LOLs.

    Actually, the funny and likable part also works in the real world. It's the secret to winning life.

    I'M STARING A HEATED ARGUMENT WITH YOU!

    Just kidding, I don't think I have a mean bone in my body.

    One tip I would add, which won't really help yourself now but will help others, is to always remember what it was like to gain points. When you read posts, don't forget to 'like' or 'lol' someone else's post, even after you become a member, whether they are a new member or not.

    I encourage the staff and memebers to help Update links: challenges are difficult to impossible to look up because they are eather just notched away and forumgoers Can not acess them without being full members or links are outdated and well same result. Im glad I wrote down The challange I choice to do for kicks Im goign to consider the budget the Lot price and save up enough mulah to do a complete home within that budget.

    spam forums and fourm games are a good way but keep in mind here no one is likely to take you seriously till youcan strut your style as a member. keepingthings mellow untill you get the ropes is alwayse a good idea for forum gowers. Like for isntance I found out they do not like any word inciteing lack of inteligince in fact why is that of all words relating to Dumb changed?

    Clerifycation on spam forums; Spam forums in this instance are considered to be forum topics that are ridiclious off topic and for general fun reasons, not random trolling or other such frowned upon activities.

    I also need points. XD I have been trying to get some but it is so excruciatingly slow. I have 36? I think. So, what do you guys recommend as the fastest way?
  • rosemowrosemow Posts: 147,102 Member
    Hello :)
    Just a little note for new members. You receive a point each time another simmer presses like or awesome or insightful on a post that you have posted. Keep posting on the different threads and sections of the forums and you will soon get the points/posts. The off topic section is a good place to post.
    You will soon get the required points and posts if you also post about your simming experiences on threads that you are interested in the thread topics.
    Reading and posting on threads in the Stories and Legacies section is great. The simmers there would appreciate your feedback on their Stories and their legacies

    Post a lot in the off topic fourm, or post on an active discussion.

    @Animal_Simmer Keep posting, I know it's really painful but you're almost there. Off Topic section is a great spot and I also found Discussion threads to be super helpful :smiley:
