Points do mean prizes!

Post by billinom8s » Jul 23rd, '18, 21:46

Right then you points hungry 'orrible lot.

Here's some info that you may find useful to know.............................

YOU DON'T GET ANY POINTS FOR UPLOADING A PIC (MELLOWYELLOW).

So what do you get for your points and how do you earn them i hear you screaming :-?? :-?? :-??

So for
5000 points you get a nice new SWB t-shirt .
7500 points you get a years subscription.
10000 points gets you a nice new SWB hoodie/zipper top.


So how do you earn these points then?????? Simple, forum interaction.

There are a few ways I could explain it but i think the easiest and clearest way is just to stick it in a list for you - that way there's no confusion. 8-} 8-}

starting a thread................?
posting in a thread.............?
uploading an attachment.....0
Promote an event..............50
Organise a rideout to an event....250
Organise a social event........500
Organise a rideout..............500


There are of course some rules and regs to these points awards, we're not made of imaginary points you know!

Promoting an event
So if you see an event that you think people might be interested in and you post it up you'll get some crisp new points added to your account. Just pm me to let me know. Organise a ride to the event and you'll earn yourself 250 points.

Organise a social event
Be it a pub meet, party, cinema night, pi$$ up, bingo, trackday outing, dog walk etc etc etc - if you plan it and promote it then people will join you. If you want some advice or tips on how to go ahead with it, give us a shout and we'll share some info to make it easy for you. Just pm to let me know.

Organise a rideout
The biggy. So pick a date, time, meeting point and route. Destination if you like or just a route - it's your ride, you decide. But it has to be all yours, if you're organising a ride to something someone else has organised (Bike night, show, etc) then it'll fall under the rideout to an event.
Think about the pace, cater for those who turn up and above all have fun. Need some tips then give us a shout.
If you fail to turn up for your own ride(hungover/shopping/unexpected wedding etc) then not only will you not get your 500 points - but all those who did turn up will get 250 points. If there's a legit reason and you cancel with less than 24 hours before the ride you'll only get 250 points. You have be warned =))

So there you have it, work in progress so be patient as we try to work it all out. We'll backdate the points awards to 12/7/18 so some of you may already have some points owing. If that's the case then you'll get them, don't panic.

These oh so important points won't be awarded to your tally until the event has taken place.




Over to you then - go get earning ! :-bd :-bd :-bd

How many for a VFR V5 ?
Have you noticed that anyone going slower than you is an idiot, and anyone going faster is a maniac ?
