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?
