A little showoff is good sometimes!
Our scoring and badging system let you show your values to others; It shows how knowledgeable, expert, and engaged you are. It always feels good to be recognized and to be on top of the list!
How can you get point? Just be active and share your knowledge with others. For each up-vote on your answers 3 points will be added to your account. For each person following your question 1 point will be added to your account.
