Implementing Point System

I'm trying to implement a point system into the form module, so that users would gain or spend points when posting to certain forums. I've added a 'Points' field to the extraStatistics function. However adding a Default value has no effect, nor does changing the value in the Edit Member Popup.

Did I add this field tot the wrong function?

Here is the code

function extraStatics() {
      $fields = array(
         'db' => array(
            'ForumRank' => 'Varchar',
            'Occupation' => 'Varchar',
            'Company' => 'Varchar',
            'City' => 'Varchar',
            'Country' => 'Varchar',
            'Nickname' => 'Varchar',
            'FirstNamePublic' => 'Boolean',
            'SurnamePublic' => 'Boolean',
            'OccupationPublic' => 'Boolean',
            'CompanyPublic' => 'Boolean',
            'CityPublic' => 'Boolean',
            'CountryPublic' => 'Boolean',
            'EmailPublic' => 'Boolean',
            'LastViewed' => 'SSDatetime',
            'Signature' => 'Text',
            'Points' => 'Int'
         'has_one' => array(
            'Avatar' => 'Image'
         'belongs_many_many' => array(
            'ModeratedForums' => 'Forum'
         'defaults' => array(
            'ForumRank' => _t('ForumRole.COMMEMBER','Community Member'),
            'Points' => '5'
         'searchable_fields' => array(
            'Nickname' => true
         'indexes' => array(
            'Nickname' => true,
      return $fields;

We are also looking for something like this. Has anyone had any success? Are there any existing mods out there already?
