You get high force ratings by posting good posts. Look around the forums for threads from people who need help. Help them, go the extra mile and find a few links for them. Or maybe you found an interesting article? Post it up! Just be active in the community and you should see your force meter fill up in no time! (Plus, you get 200 force points for becoming a gold member, and +20 for becoming a mac/pc user grouper.)

I'm part of the PC users group and my force meter doesn't seem any bigger than chris's.

That's because when you join a PC/Mac user group, you only get 20 pts, which wouldn't be very noticable to the eye. You aslo have no votes. Chris, has no usergroup, but he has had 3 votes on him, which is 30 pts, so your sabers will look about the same

Ir can be tough though, because it seems that only a few of us still have tokens...(I have 29)
so if you help someone elso out, but they don't have tokens, then your force meter won't go up.
Hey, Haiku, do you have any tokens?
(I bet no one will vote for this).

Me, the guy who is usually explaining how force works, didn't know that you could put your crusor on the handle to see your force points
That's awesome. Good job TMM

He used some jedi mind trick on Malone to implement the system. it all started with him posting and posting and then he said "You do not need to calibrate the lightsabers by number of posts. You need the force system." and Malone did it!
(Now if I don't get thrown a force token funny point for that ...... then your judgemnet is clouded by the dark side it is.)

Ah yes. I fear my Jedi powers have interfered with my plan for global domination. You have caught on to my master devise. *waves hand* You will forget this thread. EDIT: And the fact that I ever posted anything this stupid.

Too bad there isn't a "not funny" option in the rating selection.

Sigh.. You guys are mean.
Anyhow, we better get back on track.
What do you guys think of getting force for movies. Afterall, isn't that what Alam's is for?

I never noticed the j before. I always thought it was Haiku, as in the japanes poem style.
anyways...Yeah, movies would be cool. The better your rating for a movie, the more points you get.

1) How do you join Usergroups?
-Click the little tool box below the site naviagtor. You know ,the box with FAQ,Profile,Your new Messages,Memberlist, etc. You should see an Icon that says "Usergroups. You'll see 2 menus. The top menu will feature the user groups your currently enrolled on, and the bottom menu are the usergroups your not on. To join a user group, select the group from the drop down menu and click view information. From there, there should be an option to join the usergroup. Some usergroups are closed, meaning you have to earn the right to be part of the group, such as the Superuser icons. Other groups, such as the Movie Maker/Plugin Maker groups, will automatically add you to the group list once you submit a movie/plugin.
Also, you may get a '0 - insightful' if somoene thought your post was good, but not quite a +1 post. All you have to do is select a discription from the drop down menu and hit submit. That's all! Hope this helped.

The Dark Side clouds everyone's force level.
Except the Dark Side's of course.
