Earning Reward Points
Reward points are earned when you contribute positively to the community, in particular by responding to questions with helpful answers. Conversely, you may lose points (or lose your account) if you post a question or answer that is abusive or inappropriate. While points are not transferrable or redeemable, they clearly recognize those members who are most active and helpful.
