Amritpal hello,
? new member since 2005 ? Have you gone and come back then ?
Sorry for the ironic tone, but I would have two suggestions : give others more critiques, more constructive ones, show some real interest in the site and don't always write those "great shot" only comments. Don't call "bald eagle" a seagull (seen on one of your pics). Also you are posting pics without notes most of the time...without being compulsory they are still one of the nice and interesting features of this site....
There are more threads on this subject than most of us have time to read, have a look!

Best regards

Amritpal,

my only advice will be: forget about the points. Exchange with other members, enjoy and coment photos you like (and not only the ones uploaded by "automatic-point-givers"). Then you'll have good time on TE, meet great people and improve your photographer skills... And, in the end, if you have 10.000 points and happy with it, it's a good thing, but it's definitly not the major point to me.

Cheers,

Loïc

PS: congrats, you are the 1.000 TE member to open a point-related thread. You win... nothing but all my success wishes! :p

A few suggestions:

1) Post more photos - and include notes, details and anecdotes - that's what brings the photos alive
2) Critique other peoples' photos (even if you're not positing one yourself
3) Be prepared to take constructive criticism when offered (whether you act on it is your choice - just don't be surprised if you take no notice and don't improve....)
4) Forget points - they are an arbitrary (at best) guide to how good a photographer you are
5) There are no prizes beyond the satisfaction of knowing you've contributed to the site and, perhaps, made a few friends / contacts along the way
6) Enjoy the site
7) Live and let live - we're all different, post shots for a variety of reasons and march to different beats

Best wishes.

Paul.

Follow the advices, in order to have more pleasure and knowledge.
But about points... forget it. Edit your profile and in Default Point System Behavior select Do Not Display Points.
Or don't care about my suggestion ;-)
