What do you mean by "points" on your user page? You can customize your user page to include things like userboxes and pictures. Starstuff (Owl me!) 13:59, October 10, 2009 (UTC)

If you go to your page you will notice that in large numbers 11667 is written and for me 15 is written. All I ask is what it means and why it is there. Also,if you go to the patronus page,you find a table. How do you make it?!--Beautiful altar 14:13, October 10, 2009 (UTC)

I think you are referring to edits? --Profiteor 14:14, October 10, 2009 (UTC)

Yes, I think I am. I am not sure. --Beautiful altar 14:15, October 10, 2009 (UTC)Beautiful altar

Well at the very top there is a blue bar with a large white number(s) ... If that is what your are talking about then that is your edit count :D --Profiteor 14:18, October 10, 2009 (UTC)

You can also find a guide on how to create tables here. Starstuff (Owl me!) 14:25, October 10, 2009 (UTC)

wow !! thanks a lot !!!! please bear to answer only one more question. What do I do with the edit?!...I am really sorry to keep disturbing you people--Beautiful altar 15:00, October 10, 2009 (UTC)

When going to a page and fixing something adding some new information etc. you get an edit when you reach a certain amount of edits you can are awarded an Order of Merlin 3rd class for 1000 edits and so on. --Profiteor 16:04, October 10, 2009 (UTC)

And once you reach 10,000 edits, you are awarded Merlin's Beard. -- GrouchMan (Send an owl then scram!!) 19:31, October 27, 2009 (UTC)
