Earning Points

Why do I want to earn points?

Users with the highest points are entered into weekly drawings for a $25 gift card. Also, users with high points will get a custom user page like this one: John Watson. Why do you want that page? Bragging rights, ability to post your site link and get traffic to your site, etc.
