What's happening to my points?

+11 votes
First of all, this is not a big deal. Having said that, I've voted up a number of photos and questions in the past week but my G2G points have remained the same. Is there a reason? Thanks!

I think I might know what's happening. When you upvote someone else's question, it doesn't add to your G2G points. Only upvotes on answers will add to your point total.
Thanks Ellen. I went back and read about G2G points, and sure enough, no points for voting up questions. I never paid much attention to points before, but now I'm getting close to the G2G6 badge and I guess I got over-anxious. Thanks again!
That's why I'm upvoting questions lately, not answers, I don't want the points myself but want those deserving to have them, like you Robin!
Thank you, C. You have a great heart!

Hello Robin.

You don't get G2G points for up voting questions. The list of actions generating G2G points is in the following help page:


Plese see also the following post by Sarah Rojas on how many points you get for the actions you do on G2G:

Thank you for the links and the answer. I get it now. Points aren't what it's all about, but I do enjoy being able to encourage others and participate in the community. Thanks again!
You're welcome Robin.

By the way, the G2G6 badge is manually awarded:


You'll be there in no time !
Thanks for the "heads-up"!
