Points

Points can be earned by contributing to the website, similar to (but not the same as) XP. You can earn an unlimited amount of points, but you cannot hold more than 500 points at any time. Members who rank up can hold additional points, 100 x Rank (Rank 8 = 800 points max.). Points do not expire. Effectively, you use points to access an Archived video. You can use your points as often as you like. Like XP, you may have Points removed from your account if found to be participating in any activity that gains you points you do not deserve, including any exploitation of the website to achieve this. All points used will be recorded for your review.

Points are awarded to use to unlock access to Archived Videos. You will earn points when you contribute to the website. Contributions can be in terms of video content, suggestions for development, resources like proprietary scripts or hosting, or financial contributions that help pay the hosting bills.
Additionally, you will receive free points that will top up low balances. The higher your membership rank, the more of these free points you will receive.

Members are awarded contributor status after a sustained effort to upload quality, fault free content. Your first step towards this goal is reading and understanding the Naming Conventions. Then upload your first content and respond to feedback provided by content moderators. Once you're comfortable with the upload process and requirements, continue to provide excellent content that doesn't require moderator intervention and you will be on your way the prestigious rank of DarcyF1 Contributor.
Contributors will have their uploads published to the site automatically without the requirement for content moderation. Contributor status can be revoked, and limits may still apply that incur moderation.
