    How to Earn Points and Trophies
    As you may have noticed, below each user’s name there are statistics noting the number of messages they’ve posted, the number of likes they’ve received, and the number of trophy points they have.

    These trophy points are earned based on messages posted and likes received (for example, you might receive a point for every two likes you receive, or for every two messages you post. The points you earn qualify you for new user titles and in some cases, expanded permissions within the forums (such as custom user titles). You’ll also receive other trophies that recognize you for your contributions but don’t affect your user title (for example, recognition that you have received 50 Likes, have posted 100 messages, etc.) A full list is here: http://forum.tabletpcreview.com/help/trophies

    Currently, we’re keeping all the requirements as they previously were in vBulletin. If you’ve already earned a certain status within the community, you will keep that status.
