I like it, I have seen it on other forums. I don't look at it is a clique thing either and I don't believe there are any cliques here on MBB. I have been here since the beginning and have never noticed cliquiness....lol is that even a word? Just look at it like giving a friend a yummy cookie! Or a hug, or a pat on the back...lol! It's all good, I like that Karen is keeping the site fun and interesting. I belong to another forum and they call them "reputation points" I think Buddy Points is a fitting name for MBB.
