Pointsgaming is the act of making posts on a wiki that are generally useless merely for the badges and score.

Pointsgaming can be described as making unneeded edits for the points, badges, or for user rights. It also floods the recent wiki activity and is frowned upon. We encourage our users to edit thoroughly and precisely.

Here are examples of pointsgaming.

  • Creating new categories without an admin's permission.
  • Adding small edits, then coming back later to make small edits.
  • Adding pictures that aren't necessary for pages.
  • Adding categories to pages that don't need them.
