Thumbs up, Dom. The new achievements are really great.

All we need now is a leaderboard for scores/achievements :-)
yup, I'm thinking of putting it on the Top 100 page, you'll be #1 hehe

Dom, 20,000 points, I don't think anyone can get. I'm almost 3,000 and I've been here a year or so.... lol
@Paradox: Achievements will help! Most new games have 20 - 50 points worth of achievements, overtime that'll add up fast
Like I said earlier I think the new point system is awesome. However I think it's a bit weird that high scores still doesn't earn you any points. As it is now there are no reason to go for high scores, thus no reason to keep playing the games when you earn the achievements. Why not make a point system that gives you XX points for 1st, 2nd and 3rd places and if anyone beats your score you loose the points again? That would make sense and only a specific amount of points are handed out in each game.

Other than that, great job...
^Good idea! I still have to put the 2nd and 3rd place medals on profiles, but once that's in place giving points based on that would be easy to implement
