    Oh yeah I noticed that too @Morgan007 it seems they’ve updated the profile page. I’m not sure what it means either maybe @TheMix knows
    The steps you take don't have to be big, they just need to take you in the right direction.

    Howdy - this is a great question. So basically, there is a hidden number attached to badges and reactions that gives your account a 'points' value (it's meant to be a good thing). Up until now we haven't displayed that on profiles because we don't really use it for anything, but a recent software update unintentionally made your total number of points visible, so feel free to ignore it.

    Tl;dr: it doesn't really mean anything and wasn't added intentionally. :tongue: We're going to remove it if possible to avoid future confusion.
    All behaviour is a need trying to be met.

    I'm glad this has been mentioned, I want to add my thoughts on this. I personally don't think its a good thing to have like a points system for everyone as this platform isn't a game of any sorts. I feel like people might approach situations or others with bias as well as seeing themselves as "worse" compared to someone else because they have "less points" for example. But I honestly don't mind them at all, just my opinion, maybe I'm thinking too much about this (I probably am). I think badges are great tho!

    Also I realised there is a last active field which kinda bothers me to be honest. I visit this platform often and read the posts without always having the time to reply so I don't really want anyone so see when I was last active as it might make them think I ignored their post. If I want someone to know I've read their post I will simply react to it. It would be nice if there was an option to turn this off but if not then that's fine, I can live with it.

    @Morgan007 yea I know but I dont mind everything else. I honestly prefer having this visible than making my whole account private.

    Hey hey @JJLemon18,

    Thanks so much for sharing this feedback with us, we really appreciate it.

    The technology that sits behind the Boards is actually developed by an external company, and so there are some limits to the fields that we're able to hide/remove from profile pages unfortunately. We're speaking with our developers at the moment about removing the points field from your profiles and hopefully they'll be able to make that happen soon, but to be completely transparent I think it's important to say that there is a limit to how much we can customize what fields show up on the profile page. As Morgan said, you do have the option to make your profile private, but I can hear that you don't want to do that, which is totally okay.

    In terms of the last active field, I also really hear what you're saying there. We wouldn't ever want you to feel under pressure to reply or respond, though. How you engage with this place is totally your call, based on how you're feeling and the levels of energy that you've got at the time, and I think the folxs here will all be understanding of that.

    Thanks again for the feedback legend <3

    Cheers,
    Harry
