How do points work?

Hello,

Recently started using MP to keep track of routes I've climbed and noticed I am not getting any points for the routes. I've also added a picture for a route that is not counting. Am I missing something in my profile? Thanks,

Well you only get points if you on-site the route. And someone saw you hang dogging on the routes you climbed.

I think you mostly get them for adding routes and areas to the database.

Once you get a thousand jillion points MP will send you an REI sticker pack.

I appreciate the replies. I have on-sited many routes, but I have 0 points. I thought maybe my email wasn't verified or something like that, but it is.

MP doesn't give points for ticks. Points are awarded for adding specific types of content, like Routes, Areas, and Photos. If you want points for ticks, head on over to 8a.nu.

No points for ticks? Why even climb?

Once you have been heard yelling take take take, you go into the suspicious on site category. You will have to do 50 more on sites before you can be trusted again and get your on site status back.  You will need three witnesses and a letter of recommendation from climbing friend Aleks Zebastian with the neck meat.

Cool, thanks for the info. Not worried about points for ticks, but thought something might be wrong with my account as no points were showing. Thanks!

See thats why I always climb below my level so I can on-site everything. I guess I'm not supposed to take after clipping the anchors.

Just curious: do you have a trick for off-site climbing? Drone assist?

Best, OLH

Don't count on it. MP HAS OWED ME A T-SHIRT FOR A JILLION YEARS, well, okay, only months, MR. SHANNON. Eh?

Not cranky. Much. OLH :-)

After you post something points don't show on your profile until the next day.

Guideline #1: Don't be a jerk.
