You may have noticed that Consumerism Commentary authors, like myself and Smithee, and some commenters, have points and ranks displayed alongside their names. I’ve implemented a new feature on Consumerism Commentary in which visitors can earn points by participating in the discussions following every article and by visiting Consumerism Commentary every day. There will be other ways to earn points as well, and these points will be available to trade in for goodies like books and gift cards. If you haven’t already, register for an account to accumulate your points, and make sure you log in before participating in discussions.
Once you create an account, you can choose to link your Consumerism Commentary profile with your Facebook and Twitter accounts, as well.
You can find links to log in at the top of every page on Consumerism Commentary, and when you are logged in, you will see your current points in that location.
