    Implementing Point System Link to this post

    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?
