TripCollective - "Points" of clarification?

Taking up a suggestion from the Support forum, I decided to start a thread to suggest renaming the TC points to something that won't make people think they're actually worth anything. Here goes.

1. Hoots (they could resurrect that one)

2. Zoinks

3. Smiles (Who doesn't love a smile?)

4. Ticks (Another name for points AND an insidious bug)

5. Woo-hoos

Keep 'em coming, folks. Let the creative juices flow.

Gold Stars, Brownie Points, Goodzillions, TAoscars, Selfy Awards, Patonback Points?

All meaningless, but they might help dispel the myth that TA Points are worth something more tangible than Ego?

Pellets, pellets, pellets, pellets, pellets! It fits in so well with the owl, and the worthlessness of the points!

Spitballs?

Or if niceness is called for, how about "thankies".

Off to a good start. Here's a few more to keep things going.

-Sprinkles (or "jimmies" if you're from Pittsburgh)

-Pokes

-Snorts

-Squawks

-Pox

(Surprised there were no more votes for "ticks".)

Come on, guys. Let's have some more fun at TC's expense!
