SO I have searched all over and can't figure out how to add reasons for gifting points? WhenI go to gift points my dropdown for reason is empty and I want to add some reasons like as seen on here under community stars page -  which leads me to my next question where is that made available or is that a custom page for

Roles are defined at the top of the overridden POINTS_GIVE template, but you found a bug.
In that template {$SET,roles} should be {$GET,roles}. This bug only happened to staff, as they are fed a different version of the interface.

Our community stars page…


[title]Community stars[/title]

Each time you are given points in our community, you are assigned a role in relation to the points you receive:
 - [b]Helpful soul[/b] -- For those who are generally helpful
 - [b]Support expert[/b] -- For those who help give out technical support
 - [b]Programming god[/b] -- For those who are great addon coders, or coding advice
 - [b]Themeing genius[/b] -- For those that put out great themes, or themeing advice
 - [b]Community ambassador[/b] -- For those that work inside and outside our community to strengthen us all
 - [b]Translator saviour[/b] -- For those that work on translations

This page honours the top 'stars' for each of these 5 roles. That means:
1) If you show up here then it's something really special, and worth putting on your CV/Résumé.
2) If you've received a lot of help, and the people have put PayPal donation details in their signature, consider donating.

Was I helpful?
  • If not, please let us know how we can do better (please try and propose any bigger ideas in such a way that they are fundable and scalable).
  • If so, please let others know about ocPortal whenever you see the opportunity.
  • If my reply is too Vulcan or expressed too much in business-strategy terms, and not particularly personal, I apologise. As a company & project maintainer, time is very limited to me, so usually when I write a reply I try and make it generic advice to all readers. I'm also naturally a joined-up thinker, so I always express my thoughts in combined business and technical terms. I recognise not everyone likes that, don't let my Vulcan-thinking stop you enjoying ocPortal on fun personal projects.
  • If my response can inspire a community tutorial, that's a great way of giving back to the project as a user.
