Since JomSocial 3.1

With JomSocial 3.1 onwards, the dashboard counters are implemented in JomSocial Backend Panel. These counters hold various statistical data about your community and are available to all admins in main control panel view.

User points are assigned on every individual action available in JomSocial and it is the easy way to recognise how many users actually used your community.

Now you will have all members counted even if they never opened JomSocial at your site
