I've been playing this game for years, and have 55M+ lifetime AP.
Why do I need to jump through hoops to post a URL or an image?
(Are the rules for jumping through these hoops even documented somewhere?)
It's the standard Vanilla Forum rule set. 50 points to hit level 2, which are earned by getting likes/insightfuls, both of which are worth 1 point each. Join the 'Yo' thread in General to help farm some points.
They already lowered it to 20 FYI
Good to know!
