Check in with the people on chat and let  know what is going on.  They should be able to help you out.

Oh, Elsa, I checked in with Chat when I was not able to login for 3 weeks and got no questions answered and nothing but" we're working on it" . I asked so many questions and received no answers. It took 3 weeks and I talked to them 3 or 4 times and gave up. Why would my account have Judy P. instead of me?

And if points are ever really going to mean anything, look how many I lost in 3 weeks!

Ladies I am getting better about navigating around here BUT I still don't have it.  To me, my points seem to be added by the next day.  I honestly thought for awhile about not subscibing once they changed.  I have had some correspondence, some coupons and a nice gift.  Try to hold out a little while they "are listening" to us.

I use this site as a tool to get information, vent sometimes, and communicate with some of the friends I have made here.  Anything else is a definite bonus.  The points when and if they will ever mean anything are also a bonus.  I figure the access to the recipes and the information are what I come for anyway. 
I don't pay much attention to the points.  It is not like the old (here is my age showing..) S&H Green Stamps where you have a little book that shows what the points are worth and what they can be redeemed for.
Just have fun, share a recipe or two or let us know what ones not to try.

Cheryl, if all you do is log in everyday you should have 100 points show up the next day.  If you rated a recipe or post you get 50 points I believe for each.  I know it's a maximum of 2 posts per day, not sure about rating recipes.  Once in  a while my points don't show up the next day but after a day or two they seem to catch up. 

If you check your "My VBB" it should show all the posts and the dates you did them.  I do have to agree with some of the others,  the information and recipes are worth coming for.  The points, since we have no idea what we can use them for, are just a bonus.  Personally, I have learned a lot from the folks who come here  and I appreciate all their input.

Points? Oh yeah I forgot we still collect those, or what they are for, or why or anything else you and we can come up with. Someday I suppose they will have a purpose again so let's keep collecting them and see what happens. FUN !!!

Checking out VBB site is fun and informative. You learn a lot and met lots of new friends - who soon become good friends who care about each other.  Points are not the big reason for many of us to check in each day.
Enjoy VBB as it is, if they decide that points add up to something, that is just a bonus.

We've been given that wonderful apron, the cookbook and very special coupons.  That was SO NICE.   Receiving free gifts like that makes the points seem pointless.  And new friends are better than points -- new friends are better than free gifts.
Sometimes I wish I could send a gift (cookies ? ) to the people who work this site

This is the best site to get info, meet lots of new friends and we do really care about each other.
I don't care about the points anymore. You talk to people from all over the U.S. and learn a lot of
new things. You also get a lot of new recipes that have been tried by the people here so you
know the recipes will be good. We all are here to help you and each other!!!
