As we all know, Beneyoyo is a free forum where you can freely communicate as you please, provided your activities are not criminal.
However, reasonably strict rules do apply to the activities of those who are interested in the point system:
I notice that some people are just creating new posts after new posts without much interaction with other existing threads, and they do not engage with the new topics which they have created: these are not the kind of activities that the point system is designed for, the point system is intended to promote meaningful interactions and correspondences.
Therefore, if you have been involved in creating posts after posts without engagements, I strongly advise that you balance your activities by making comments to existing posts: also, do not neglect your own posts, return to them to interact with people who are corresponding because, in the absence of interactions and correspondences, your accumulated points may be deemed invalid by negligence.
It is a free forum, you are entitled to your opinions, you do not necessarily have to write only about facts or with knowledge on particular matters, you can merely ask questions share your own opinions, or even make comments in support or in opposition to other people's opinions: this is why it is called an interactive forum: disputes are very healthy in a forum like this.
Unfortunately, many members think they only have to make posts, some have resorted to making the kind of posts that only experts are supposed to make: and they have therefore resorted to plagiarism (by copying and pasting articles that they know nothing about from the internet), some even resort to using word-rephrasing tools in attempt to present unique contents: but the thing is, even if you changed the words in an article, it will still be considered as plagiarism because, the information is plagiarised.
I observed series of plagiarised contents in several post and comments, and I perceive that the reason for the plagiarism is because, the posters wanted to make analytical comments on matters that they are not experts on: Therefore, as a measure to discourage plagiarism and encourage originality, I am explicitly stating that members must NOT create or start educational post on scientific or medical matters if they are neither scientists nor doctors (they must not write emphatically or authoritatively on any subject of which they are not expert): they are only allowed to write about their own opinions or ask questions about such subjects.
The rationale for this decision is because, the only way that a lay-person can make posts or comments about matters that he or she knows nothing about is by copying and pasting articles from the internet: also owing to the fact that when a person copies and pastes such contents, the person never returns to the thread to answer questions which other members might ask regarding the giving subjects due to lack of knowledge: This is a strict warning to not make any post on scientific or medical issues if you are not qualified to make them.
I made it clear in every section that plagiarism will not be tolerated, and that a single act of cheating (even if you used word rephrasing tools) will result in your entire points being wiped off: in a nutshell, this forum wants viable original interactions, and not copying and pasting articles without even reading the contents of what is in the thread that you are pasting onto.
The reason for the point system is to encourage people to interact and to correspond with one another by making original posts and comments, and I reward people who make their own original comments: A single act of plagiarism will result in all your points being wiped off, as plagiarism is antithetical to the purpose of the point system, and therefore, it will not be tolerated.
Note that these rules DO NOT APPLY to people who are NOT INTERESTED in getting paid by accumulating points: such members are at liberty to do whatever they like as long as they are not committing any crime. So, if you are in this category, please, indicate so by sending me a personal message.
As for those who are interested in the POINT SYSTEM Please, desist from making posts or comments that should be made only by experts because, if you made an expertise post pertaining to subjects that you are not an expert of, it therefore means that you plagarised the information: and remember, a single act of plagiarism will get your entire points wiped off.
It is frustrating that no matter how much I tried to explain to people that they do not need to make posts about serious academical or scientific subjects in order to make points: in fact, such articles are boring to the sensibility of many people, especially when they know that the poster is not the originator of the information: there is no logic in a 17 years old girl making a post about "the health benefit of bitter-cola": such instance shows only two scenarios: either she is writing utter nonsensical junk or she is disdainfully plagiarising: It is a different thing if the information is directly coming from a doctor who can answer questions relating to the subject.
I really do not delight in topics popping up here and there, but IF YOU MUST create a new topic, why not think about topics that people will like to read and respond to? Nobody wants to respond to a 17 years old girl making a plagiarised post on "the benefits of bitter-cola", (when was the last time you saw a 17 years old girl buying and eating bitter-cola?).
In every aspect of life, creativity produces excitement and fun where-as, scripted activities could be boring.
Please, avoid creating any topic with a single word title, ensure that the title is not vague and that it gives the reader an idea of what the article is about: any point received by posting a topic with a single word title will be voided.Important: You must remain active even after reaching the payment point, any point made in excess will be carried over to your next round of point accumulation.
Thank you so much for this information but its not really cool because I've written about two write ups with single Titles , I will really appreciate if it can be overlooked for this first time.
Ok sir. Acknowledged .
I wasn't aware that a single topic can make my points become void. I wasn't aware of this, please can you overlook it?
**Always put God first **
Sir you are right people don't actually comment to posts on like before, we are all just writing our own article, we all should start commenting more often, and please if you are writing an article or topic write something we all know about or some life issue, so that it will be more interactive.
Noted boss. thanks for the update.

Ok sir. Noted.
Good afternoon. I wanted to ask a question concerning the rules that have been laid down now. What happens if I have flaunted the rules before reading this? Does it count? Is there still going to be a penalty for it? Is it possible to delete the post or the comment involved?
**Live, love and heal...**
