So a couple of things I have noticed,

01. It's better to replace the xenForo Logo at top of the forum with the brand name logo. Unless there is a special reason you guys keeping the default forum logo.

02. Does the point system has any use or is it disabled? Because I noticed it stays at 1.

The Logo can be changed if we have a good matched logo for Xenforo. It's a good idea.
02. The point system is always active, it actually give more points if you post more. How more posts how more points. You can see mine profile, I have 20 posts and I have some points. So how more you post how more points you get, how faster you can get a VIP upgrade.

I just can't understand how does the system work. I think I have made 4-5 new topics plus posts which makes total of 8 posts. But I only have 1 point. Yours show you have 21 posts and 2 points...

I can set thropy points as I wanted, if you have a better suggestion, we'd love to hear.
Better a per-post basis as yes,It is hard to reach 50 in trophy points(just see how many you have now).
My suggestion is giving 1 point for every posts,additional 0.5 point for being liked or any other positive action,-1.5 point for being deleted a post(self-requested delete does not count).
Or if the per-post basis hard to achieve:
+1 for the 1st post
+3 for the 5th post
+7 for the 10th post
+15 for the 25th post
+24 for the 50th post
===Now the points is 50
And for every 20/30 posts after,award them 15/35 points.
Likes:
+1 on 1st,+3 on 3th,+5 on 5th,+8 on 10th,+10 on 30th and every 20 likes after=10 points(as likes are hard to get so they value more points at startup)

And if you like,members can redeem some services using the points.eg.15pts/month for a 1|256MB|5GB vps(or some specs enough for single domain hosting)

Looks better now.Just keep in mind the forum is at startup and It is hard to post because you cannot keep a discussion for so few active members.

Sounds good to me. I was thinking more like 1 point per topic/post so 50 points/post for the VIP upgrade. But guess the above system is far better for members. But I do have one suggestion. I think we need to encourage members to make more topics so If it's possible topics should get a bit more points than posts.

Good suggestion but seems hard to configure - I haven't used Xenforo but from the current situation it should be hard to achieve that.But we can use reaction points for that however it requires admins to actively give good reactions to quality threads and posts.

And I think the boards are somehow lacking.Just look at Post4VPS.There are not enough categories to post for the "pioneers" so it is hard to post.
(And from my view making other things redeemable is also a good action to appeal new posting members.

eg. holding a competition every year,when:(only calcuates the posts and reactions got for this year,admins/mods do not participate in)
- members with the most posts gets a free domain registeration or renewal for a year
- members with the most positive reaction receives a small VPS for a year
- a lucky member than have more than 20 posts (eg.Thread ID equals something) can enjoy a tiny VPS for a year
But well...The admin is having this as a business not a profit so they may not put much money on this
