Explanations and instructions of all things Writing.Com.
There are certain times when an author will automatically be awarded Gift Points from Writing.Com:
Become an Author: When any Registered Member within the site publishes their very first item and becomes an author, we will award that member 100 Gift Points.
Daily Log In: Members also earn Gift Points for each day he or she logs in to Writing.Com. The following break down will be used to determine the number of points earned:
Registered Members earn 5 GPs
Registered Authors earn 10 GPs
Preferred Authors earn 100 GPs
Moderators earn 250 GPs
Senior Moderators earn 1,000 GPs
You will only earn Gift Points for logging in once per day. Logging in more than once per day will NOT earn you additional GPs. Gift Points will be awarded within 24 hours of the end of each day. Emails will not be sent for log in points; they will, however, be recorded in your Gift Point log. Reports are run daily which log all author earnings. Writing.Com reserves the right to discontinue the Login for Points program at any time, without prior notice.
