Pondrin is a place where you can submit and promote poetry, stories, blogs, artwork, etc. that you create for others to see. It is also a place where you can make friends, critique other's works of art, and get critiques on yours as well!
Points are like money. You can spend your points by promoting your poetry, publications, lyrics, stories, and artwork on the promo board for everyone to see. If your work is up on the promo board, it is more likely someone will click on it and view it!
You earn points by commenting on other people's profiles, blogs, poetry, publications, lyrics, stories, and artwork. You earn 1 point per comment that you make. You earn 3 points per comment though if you comment on anything listed on the Promo Board. You do not earn any points if you comment on your own though.
The difference between points and available points is that "points" are your total amount of points that you currently have. "Available points" are the current points that you have minus the ones that you just spent/set asside on the promo board. So available points are the amount of points you have available to spend.
Say you have 10 points and 10 available points.. Say you just put up one of your poems on the promo board and spent 2 points per click and set it to get 3 clicks. 2 X 3 = 6. So you spent/set aside 6 points. Therefore your "points" will still show 10 but the "available points" will now equal 4 since the other 6 are set aside to promote your poem.
The Promo Board is the board in which you use to promote your works of art (poetry, publications, lyrics, stories, and artwork.) When you have one of your works up there, everybody can see it. It is a lot more likely that someone will click on it and perhaps comment on it when it is up there. You can see the promo board at the top of the website. Also, when you login or click on "home," you can also see the promo board at the bottom right hand corner. Whenever you, or somebody else clicks on a work that's listed on the promo board, the person who owns the work will lose however many points they set for each click.
In order to add one of your works to the promo board, you will want to click on your name which is the menu in the top right corner of the website. Once the menu pops up, you will want to click on the link that says "Promote". Once you go there, first you will need to select what kind of work you want to promote, whether it's a poem, publication, lyrics, story, or artwork. After you select what kind you want to promote, you will want to click on "submit". After you click on submit, it will take you to another page where you will need to first select the name of work you want to promote. Then you will need to select how many points you want to spend per click. The higher the number of points you choose, the higher it will be on the Promo Board for others to see. Then you will select how many clicks you want to have. The total amount of points that you would be spending would be the amount of points multiplied by the number of clicks. So you will want to make sure that the points x (times) clicks do not exceed your available points. After you enter in the number of clicks that you want, then click submit.
