I have never checked, but I suspect that I have never exceeded this limit on any of my posts.

Ron, with the new point system, maximum you get points for 50 commnets - no matter which post on which one writes comment.

This is a good question. I thought it was now up to 50 comments a day, and other members have confirmed that.

It is easy to understand why the points system may be confusing for many members. There is definitely an element of mystery in the system.

My vote would be to eliminate the current points system and have a fresh start with better ways to recognize excellent blogs and outstanding bloggers.

With the new system, you get points for up to 25 comments PER DAY.  It is not per post.  So, if you have an old post that has over 25 comments, it can still points, if you haven't gone over the allotment of 25 comments.

Likewise, if you have written more than 1 post in one day, the points will stop after 25 comments per day, regardless of how many are on each post.

Thank you each and everyone of you for your answers.  Our post yesterday, had 27 comments, and I answered with 3 of them.  Somewhere after 20, only likes registered.  I have also received points on older blog post.  I checked the breakdown, and the table that Roy Kelley provided, and it does not answer my question.

There is a limit but I don't know what it is.  Having said that, there was always a limit after which the post would no longer accumulate points.

I believe the algorithm has been set to 50 comments per day from the membership that will get points. Just lately I received points on some very old posts that topped out months ago. So they really do live on.

I know there used to be a maximum number of points for comments received but I found this today - points breakdown  and it now says that points earned from comments on your posts are top secret? Would love to know what they are up to
