Few things.

1. I try to give members points, and it does not work. I am the admin on my site, so you said I should have unlimited. I dont. I need to give 10,000 to each member that donates. When I go to the bottom of the page to give the gift points, it says "You can give some of your available 182 gift-points to this user here if you like." and I cannot go over that 182 or it says I did not fill in the forms correctly. Uh ok, so I need to do that 54 times…..uhh thats not right. And too, each time I put that exact amount, it goes down one. So I would do 182, then it would say "You can give some of your available 181 gift-points to this user here if you like." and so on. How can I give 10,000 points all in one? It would be something ritual, so hopfully there is a way. Even if it was through the DB. If that would work, I wouldnt care.

2. Any possible way to see a list of CURRENT points from all members? Not the block on the front page with 5 members saying "top 5 point holders for this week." I want to see if the points im giving are actually being updated….

Thank you.

Hello,

1a) This error is given if a reason is not given.

1b) You've found a bug:
ocPortal - Entry: Gift points misreported

2) This could be programmed easily enough by someone who knows how to extend ocPortal.

Hmm. Alright, well I did the fix, and now this comes up: You can give some of your available -11,100 gift-points to this user here if you like.

I was able to do 10,000 like I wanted, but when I did it, it said this: You can give some of your available -20,100 gift-points to this user here if you like.

lol, something seems wrong.

Other then that, it seems to work great! I gave the 10,000 points and he said it updated a little while later. So I guess thats fixed. Thanks again!

The negativity is to be expected, because you're giving out more points than you have. The system allows it due to your permissions :).
