Hi Evelyn and welcome back.  Unfortunately they haven't let us know anything about the brownie points yet.  Last word was that they're still working on it.  Maybe one of these days they will surprise us all and finally come up with something lol.

No, Evelyn ..... not a thing.
I wonder why this site continues keeping track of them.  There are people who leave comments 10-15- 20 times on ONE recipe just trying to gain points.

Welcome back Evelyn!  As far as I know nothing has changed with the "points".  Undecided

I'm of the opinion that nothing will be done.....if that happens, I think MANY will find another site to get their recipes, and that will be the end of this site.  So sad.....if that happens.

STILL haven't heard anything about what's to become of the points - anxiously awaiting an answer though! Smile

Welcome back...
I really don't keep track of the points, I know they are at the top of the page but I pay more attention to the recipes and "chatting" with friends.  I think the help I get and the recipes I get are "reward" enough for visiting the site. Do other sites give you stuff for just posting a comment, reviewing a recipe or just visiting?

This is the only site I have been active on. I first joined by entering a recipe for some contest (obviously didn't win). When I first joined I know the points were good for something, but I can't remember what!?! I've been accumulating points for a few years now, and as with Nikki, that's not the reason I visit VBB. I love what others have to say and the recipes that get shared.

I think that use of "brownie points" has slipped away just like most of the fun things. I still use this site because I love seeing the comments of the other VBB. It is a wonderful group of Americans.

I belong to several other sites where people post about a certain subject ..... they are happy, helpful, friendly sites and people from all over the world talk about a much loved subject.     Every site has members who are Moderators and can remove subjects or comments that do not apply to the subject or are just plain garbage.
Not one site has anything resembling "points".

Like Nikki, I don't pay attention to points.  I really like the VBB recipes and of course the coupons are nice when those items are on sale.
Chatting with friends is nice when there is time.

Awwwww.......so sweet....I know I'd miss y'all if I were not to return or if any of you went to other sites and did not return to this.  You help keep me sane and provide some "conversation" for me.  Trust me that is very important to me right now.

I just joined tonight and I had no idea what the points were for. I guess nothing.

Welcome Deb ...... the points are worth nothing but the recipes are worth a lot.   Having nice people to talk to is worth a fortune!

I myself don't care about points.For me this is all about friendships and sharing recipes with all the great people who visit this site .Like Nikki this is my sanity.I enjoy everyone here.I visit this site very often and it has become a part of my life.I hope everyone has a wonderful Thanksgiving!
