Know we post the links to the pages in galleries right? Well, if you comment on 5 pages (in the galleries) from each person's you get one amount of posts, if you comment on all their pages you get the other amount. If someone doesn't post at least 5, but if you comment on them all you still get the 5 pages point one.
