For new members (or old members who run into an issue), please make a post in this forum asking any questions you have about using the site and how it works that are not answered in the FAQ. Not only are we happy help you, but also we can use your feedback to make the site better for tomorrow's new member! A lot of the instructions throughout the site and answers in the FAQ are there because someone else pointed out that it wasn't clear before.

I just checked and they're working.
Have you confirmed the sharing by clicking the buttons on the Giveaway Page?

Yep! Actually I was given points before however this past 2 months I guess, my popularity points were not moving unless I was given from my book review. Its just frustrating.
Do you participate daily in the Giveaway? Unless you were disqualified, you should get the points. Try to recheck the score to refresh the page.

I do, I always do. Can you please tell me how one aquires 4 points in sharing the giveaways in social media. My understanding is you'll get 4 points if you participate in 4 consecutive days. For example July 1,2,3,4 = 4 points, then July 5,6,7,8 = another 4 points. Is this how it works?

No, it's rolling numbers. You don't keep adding points. And you only retain them if you continue to do it every day. So 4 pts for July 1,2,3,4. Skip a day & those go away.
Life without a good book is something the CatInTheHat cannot imagine.

Ahhh... okay. So there really is no point in doing this everyday because there is no point added, however, if we stop those points will "go away." What a messed up routine were doing here.

There is a point as you got four bonus points you otherwise won't get. If your score is low, it will improve it. You need to do this daily to keep the bonus points.
