What happens when your meter pegs?
Edit: So....Lynn. You have more posts than I do and your meter is pegged. Get anything in the mail? Also, I have less posts, but more points???? I'm sitting at home sick as a dog all day wondering what all this really means!!!! (Or...Could be the drugs)
The green bar is based on number of posts (it is a measure of number of posts relative to all posters - if you hover over the bar it tells you things like 'Top 50 Poster'). Post points doesn't seem to do anything but give you points. I am guessing points weren't given in the beginning and that is why some have so much less than others. As it currently works you get 5 for posting, and 15 everytime someone replies or quotes your post.
As to the original question, it started working again a couple days after I posted. But you can see my first post in this thread is a '0' - that isn't possible if the point system is working.
