What does the little blue squares with the 0K, 5K, or 10K designations mean in these discussion lists?

You have reached the 5000 Tech Republic points level.

You get points for participating in discussions and answering technical questions.

When this place started, there were rumours of swapping points for trinkets, but I don't know what happened to them, and frankly I don't care.

Ok, I see. Still seems strange, since I don't participate in the points thing that I should have 5000 points.

Yes you do

Every time you log in you are supposed to get 50 points (once per day...), every time you rate an article, answer a question, and some other things too.
