How do I get more G points?

Send your Glogs to your friends and share them on your online profiles. When your Glog gets a lot of activity like views, likes, reposts, and favorites, you get G points! (To find out how to show off your Glogs, read “How do I share my Glogs?”) If your Glog becomes popular, it may become a Mover & Shaker or get featured in Explore, which also earns you G points. (Read “What are Movers & Shakers?”)

If you’re not interested in showing off your Glogs online, you can get G points for other activities, too. Inviting other people to join Glogster is a great way to earn G points – you can send your friends an email invite right from your Glogster page.

What is a private Glog?

If a Glog is private, it is not displayed on Glogster. It can only be shared by its creator, and people must know its URL address to view it. For example, if you want to make a Glog about your vacation but don’t want to share photos of you and your family online, you can make a private Glog and send the URL to your friends.

If a Glog is public, any user can view, print, or share it online.

What is inappropriate content?

Inappropriate content is any content that contains racism, nudity, pornography or anything unsuitable for an audience of 18 years and younger. If 5 users click the inappropriate tag on your Glog, the Glog will be hidden. Then, only our administrators can change the status of your Glog. If The Glogster Team finds any Glog inappropriate, the Glog will be erased immediately.

How do I set up a custom domain for My Glogster?

Setting up a custom domain allows you to host your Glogster page with a custom URL, such as “www.myname.com.”

Once you have purchased your domain, go to your Glogster page and click “Custom domain.” Type in your domain address and click “Use it.” If you are the administrator of your domain, you will need to set up the DNS to point to the IP address 50.57.3.176. If you are not the administrator of the domain, contact your administrator to set it up for you. Please note that it may take up to 24 hours for changes to take effect.

Once your custom domain is set up, users can access your Glogster page through your custom URL address.

Old G's recalculation formula

Your G points have been recalculated by dividing the old amount of G's by 10, and then rounding them to the nearest 50 or 100. 

For example: If your old amount of G's was 8978, it was divided by 10, giving you 897.8. That number was then rounded up to the nearest 100, so your new amount of G's is: 900.
