My users are all getting a rediculous amount of points in a short timespan. Something seems really off. Here are my settings, and here are my observations as I do some test cases:

--------------------------------
Test 1

No Group rules.
0 decimal points
New post income set to 2
New thread income set to 3


Category A -> forum rate rule set to 0.25 rate
-> Forum B

Creating a new topic in Forum B
Expected : 2(.25) = 0.25 OR (2+3)(.25) = 1.25
Result : +20 points

--------------------------------
Test 2

No Group rules.
0 decimal points
New post income set to 2
New thread income set to 3

Category A -> forum rate rule set to 6 rate
-> Forum B

Creating a new topic in Forum B
Expected : 2(6) = 12 OR (2+3)(6) = 30
Result : +16 points

--------------------------------
Test 3

(repeating the test 2 , nothing changed)
Creating a new topic in Forum B
Expected : 2(6) = 12 OR (2+3)(6) = 30
Result : +18 points

--------------------------------

... What the hey?
What's going on, am I not understanding how this thing works properly?
If I can understand how this thing works I can fix my economy to match what it's doing but it seems random and unpredictable, as if it's not taking my settings into account at all.
What are your points per character?
Thanks bro, that was exactly the problem.

Since we're a game I mistook 'character' for 'player' instead of 'ASCII character'. My bad, my fault.
