it is all quite whacky, they should have used a normal monitary inflation model , wherein, fare enough newer more powerfull tech get more points but , not by down sizeing what they pay out in points on existing systems ,it puts existing folders off and anything that puts people off charitable giveing is stupid an example of poor management/ pr imho
