New Points System

New Points System Now Active

A new points system has been engaged, triggering a new era in tracking Santa for Santa.

The new system, as announced weeks ago, features three total points types. You can access them via the new Points Summary gateway.

Elf Points are points as you have always known them. Points are awarded for your activity as an elf on, especially in terms of your elf profile and how you present yourself as an elf online. This overall points pool gives you a ranking as an elf that features a star-theme. The higher your points the higher rank you achieve.

Tracker Points are a new points category that focuses on your core job as a tracker elf – tracking Santa for Santa. Tracker reports are at the center of your tracker rank, as are activities and duties most closely associated with tracking Santa. Your Elf Supervisor contributes to your ranking through a review process that evaluates your reports to flight command for their quality and usefulness.

Santa points are a less sharply defined category. These points are mostly acquired through Santa himself, who monitors your online behavior and rewards you for your kindness, creativity, initiative and charitable actions.

In all, all three point types are listed via their own links above. While this system overhaul has taken extensive hours of work we recognize that it is possible that errors have occurred.

If you feel that is the case you can request a Point & Badge Audit. It might take a few days to sort out but we are confident any errors can be rectified.

Over the course of the next several hours and days a lot of news will come out to help explain new processes, features and actions that can be taken to improve your point standings and ranks.

Thank you, Elf Roger for explaining to us about the new points. I think many elves got more points. Yay! Thanks to our supervisors and Santa during this busy time. I’m so happy to receive points from both of you, and I’ll continue doing my best more for Santa and elves here. Than you!


I just want to commend @Elf Max and his team for making this happen so quickly. We have all spent a lot of hours on it, as well as bringing along some other essential features in support of the new system. Frankly, there are not enough points in the world that I can give to Max for all his hard work. He has been a trooper this year and the greatness of his efforts is all over this site. It has been an incredible contribution that I think will pay dividends to our work in growing elves for some time to come. Thank you, Elf Max and those who are supporting him in these efforts. Excellent work!

Thank you Santa for nothing. I’d like to appreciate Elf Max and his team too. They’re so amazing working. I imagine how much they’re working harder and nicer during this short time. I’m not good at baking cookies like Mrs. Claus, Elf Buddy Frost, Elf Buutercup, etc. but I want to give them THANK YOU!
