I can confirm that blog posts originally drafted in your personal content area won't get points assigned when getting moved or published in a topic space. This is by design to encourage everybody to post their blogs in the proper spaces.
OK, thanks Oliver. I'm not sure I've read that anywhere. It might head off a few more questions if the points policy made this clearer. As I said, I'm not particularly bothered, but I'm sure some people take the points system a little more seriously
