This has helped point me in the right direction because I often wonder if there is any point in getting all these points and now we seem to be pointing out the point of the point threads. This has become a pretty pointed discussion. I hope the OP gets the point? Do I get three points for talking about points? I hope I've made my point.

Mariano Rivera will probably be the last ever MLB player to wear the number unless they change rules down the road. The list of players to have worn the number is long. ...and you are correct, Deep Thought says it's the meaning of life!

answering any question or reading an article gets points which means rewards. This system is to help make things fun and motivate others......an incentive program

There is no harm in answering every day and points accumulate which to some mean a great deal.

All for fun and fun for all!

NITEMAN3D I have been on spark since 2008 and of course the whole thing is to keep us busy and being healthy but a big ppartof it for alot of people is the points. I was off it for nearly 2 years in 2017-8 because I got sepsis but as soon as I was well enough I came right back. I had gained weight in the hospital because they said I was too skinny when I got sick. But I was glad to be back....so it is the points that make it even more fun but also the blogs and other things that teach us so much. Just relax and have a ball....any questions just ask either me or anyone else most are so helpful.

This seems to be a very pointed conversation, but I don't get the, er, ah,... point. But now, I have three points plus one credit toward my next ten points that I get for a hundred posts. How very generous of them. I think @GABY1948 is right. I think it's points. That's my final answer. (Unless I need a quick threes points some day.)

Obviously the questions are easy. If the writer intended more information be provided, the question should be worded differently or with the simple addition of the word "why," seen here.

It is because yes/ no threads belong in the game room.

The reason it drives me nuts is because the yes/ no threads (that once again belong in the game room) Push the true discussion threads to the bottom of the page. Or onto the second page.

What if someone is new to message boards and doesn't know that there is a second page?

The reason the long threads can't be removed at this point is because they are too large. Most members utilize the free membership and so the technological resources are limited.

I don't think people are upset, just for the record. The message board rules actually state that yes/no and other 1 word responses belong in the game room. As you can see, the cafe, which is actually intended for discussions, is filled with large threads that technically belong in the game room.

At one point there was a thread where someone wondered if the ones that are more of motivation/reminder could have their own board but that didn't happen. Also, the big threads really can't removed due to limited resources.

I really do not see why people are so upset or even care how many times people post in a thread. I do post daily to some of the yes/no questions because they don’t post out a specific date in which they are referring to. So I answer for the points. For example the thread that ask “did you overeat yesterday” has no end date. Maybe the people who start the thread should be specific or maybe some need to lighten up a bit. Anyway I don’t have a problem with it because if I don’t want to look at it I don’t go into the thread.

I do post this in all kindness and yes this is my second post to this thread....

Yes I saw the one word answer repeating.
I agree with JustEatRealFood and LuAnn_in_PA.

I’m on a few boards with minimum letter requirements. It’s nice.
Occasionally I will see “agree. Quality post”
The words quality post fill the requirements for letters. And it reminds us to make quality posts.

But, I reply with essays, sooooo..... lol.

"And JERF, I agree these yes/no belong in the game room or in their own daily reminder or motivation type board,"

The Getting Fit over 50 board used to be wonderful and topical.
Over the years, the mods have let it descend to yet another game room too. At one time, they asked for off topic threads to be reported, and they were moved (or deleted).
Now on-topic threads are lost in the mess.

"Posting on the message boards helps me stay accountable, focused, and in control."
I think we all get that.
But are you one of those of which the OP speaks?
Do you answer the same simple yes/no question day after day after day?

For those saying accountability, why not elaborate? Might help someone else.

Such as:
did you drink water today?
Yes, because I kept a pitcher at my desk.

Someone else struggling might not think, “oh, a whole pitcher” when they have a 16 Oz/ 500ml bottle.

And admittedly, I don’t get the point or points.

They really do belong in the game room.

It passes the time of day, and has been going on since this site began.....no one removes the questions, for some reason. It is fun for insomniacs.

I see them as point grabbers and/or people who can't remember which yes/no questions they have already answered.

All the yes/no threads here in in the Cafe drive me nuts. They belong in the game room but have gotten too big to be removed. They keep growing because those who respond and often times daily, are posting to get their points.

Reading over the Café, I notice some people answer repeatedly, and some daily to weekly, often in a simple yes or no question thread.
What’s the purpose or value of this?


Wake up every day knowing you make the decision to begin your journey anew.

This choice in this moment defines now.
What is your now?
