Re> Not sure what points are - and if there important in someway??? <
Here at wikitree we have an honor code, One of the points of this code is to give credit for the work others have done.
Points are all about just that, giving credit, along with letting other members know if a person in new or like Kevin (8,270 points) has put in a lot of effort helping others.
However if a person wants to remain anonymous when asking or answering a question, then perhaps the points system would become pointless.
I think we get 100 points for answering a question 50 for asking and none for making a comment? Which seem odd after all making a comment is still making an effort to help even if you don't know or cannot find the answer.
Maybe this needs looking at Wikiteam.
