I don't understand the whole points thing. Is there a reason we have them?

  • The points system is:

    1) Just for fun
    2) Was started to generate more activity in the answers section

    Actively pursueing "points" is a choice that some make. Some do take it seriously and get competitive about it.. lol

    However......... Many of us just hang in answers and enjoy it for what it is. Regardless of the point system. :-)

  • They revamped Answers a few months ago to make it harder for someone to get an account and start trolling with anonymous postings. By requiring you to devote a lot of time to answering questions BEFORE you're allowed to post anonymously, they (somewhat) improved the tenor of things around here.

  • For now.. Points/Levels open up new features the higher up you go..

    For Ex: Level 16 you can answer questions anonymously.... Level 21 ( I believe..lol) You can view the Dean's List... Level 26 you can vote to move questions from one category to another (say a parenting question is asked in money & work, so 26 and up can vote to move the question to parenting so it will get more/better answers)... and new things open up as you gain points/levels

    There was discussion not to long abot about using the points for some sort of "rewards" system. Some suggestions were : trading points in for gift cards, trading in for coupons...ect.. I do not know what became of those discussions though.

  • Thanks. I just wanted to make sure I was doing this right. If I need those points for something then I wanted to make sure I was racking them up.
