Reaction score deals with the "likes" etc. you've received in response to your posts. If you click on your name in the blue bar at the top of the page, you can then click on "Reactions received" to review all of them.

Trophy points represent achieving certain milestones - see https://tugbbs.com/forums/help/trophies/ (you can get there via the Help link at the bottom of the page, too).

This is all a bunch of "feel good" social media stuff introduced when we went to Xenforo bulletin board software. Personally, as an avowed curmudgeon, I think it's a bunch of malarkey, but it's all the thing these days.

But it's YOUR circus, and these are YOUR malarkeys. :banana::cheer::wave::D

Thank goodness for those shower heads on flexible hoses.

Speaking of feel good awards, what about some related to:
1) high number of views for a thread - I've seen some posts with thousands of views. Reward the OP with some points. Could be scaled 100 views = x points, 500 = y, 1000 = z, etc.
2) high number of replies to a thread - similar to #1 above (probably lower numbers though).
3) high number of likes/reactions for a post

The "top" post in sightings/distressed has 1,146 replies and 50K views! I think they should be rewarded.
