User points are a number that represents one's contribution to the MCreator's community. A higher user point count means that the person has contributed more to the community than the lower user point count.
The current formula
U = Ncomments*0.5 + Nforums*5 + Nmodifications*10 + Nplugins*30 + Nwikipages*20 + atan(0.002*(accountageindays-1000))*450*(2/PI) + 317
We used to calculate the user point count using the following formula:
User points (U) are calculated using the number of user's comments (C), forum topics (F), number of posted modifications (M) and the amount of user's wiki pages (W).
