    So I got a follower today which was a slight surprise as me and the user were in disagreement (perhaps the user is a better person than I) and about an hour later (without me making any posts) they un-followed me. Now I would assume the follow was just a mistake in the first place. The part I'm confused about is that I gained 3 points for a follow and then lost 10 for an un-follow for a net 7 loss.

    Is this intended and if so, couldn't this be a way to potentially harass users who you don't agree with?

    That's... a pretty good point, actually. I'm giving you an ironic follow for pointing it out.

    I guess the question is whether or not it always reduces your credits by ten whenever you get unfollowed by that person, or does it only account for the first time? Either way, I don't think a fix would be too hard to implement by bumping down the credit loss for an unfollow.

    You lose trophy points? That sounds even worse to me, I just assumed it was credits.

    Thank you for the offer but I am now over the amount I was before posting this thanks to the people in this thread. I'm not too concerned about any of it either, I was mostly asking based on the potential for a loophole in the system. I also just wanted to make sure it was credits that you lose and not points because those decide the ranks of individuals.

    To answer your second question there are games you can play and you can make bets with others. Betting on what you think will happen in the upcoming films seems to be the biggest use of them that I can see.

    Ah ok, well if anyone needs any credits it's no problem. I don't have wi-fi so I can't play games and I'm notba betting person.

    Weird loophole about the follow/unfollow thing. Should be altered
