This may be a bit of a surprise if you expected a complaint from someone who feels they are disadvantaged by the points system. On the contrary, I am doing very well indeed on this wiki, at #3. That's what made me notice.
I show up every once in a while, write something, and then leave. I have never worked HARD on this wiki. I have never contributed a single image to THIS particular wiki. I did some colored charts. Big woop.
Now take, for example, User:The Platinum Shadow. He uploaded a zillion photos, and only has 40 points.
One reason that stands out right away is that UPLOADERS of photos get NO POINTS AT ALL! That's right, zero points for uploading.
But it also seems as though the points do not go up fast enough for the higher tiers of achievement. Because that's all TSS does: photos, he does not pick up the generous bonuses for doing even a single instance of the other actions. They really need to balance the point system. Right now it is really unbalanced in favor of Jack of All Trades, Master of None like myself, who pick up pretty decent points for editing our user pages once, or adding an article to a category.
