I wonder how some people got lots of points real fast, now I know.  Oh well points are not everything.

Dave Hill PhD,ePro,SFR,CIAS,BPOR,CNE,CSC Chicago Area Real Estate Agent Nothing wrong with asking questions. But I do agree there were a lot of rediculous Q's being asked by many of the same people. It was obvious that was just for points and not for substance.

Oh gosh, I'm so thick.  I originally misread this question. I noticed that they changed the amt for answers from 25 to 10, but I hadn't asked questions.  I 'm glad they made that change.  It will help.

10 points seems far more reasonable. It looks like it has curbed the question posting frenzy.

Yes, it does look that way. I think that's better.  Did they change the amt for asking q's?

It looks like they made the change today at some pt. I answered a few q's in the morning at 25 pts each and now the rest are 10 pts.  I have no idea if there are caps.  I think the most important place to put caps is on asking the q's.  That was getting out of control.

Change was way overdue. Now we can all concentrate on  interaction between the members.

I think this was a shift as many members started asking questions which made no sense.

Will Hamm Spot on. There's so much more depth to this website than points.

Debbie Gartner It's all good regardless. I'm just happy to see points being awarded for Q & A''s. I just wish AR would make it a public forum like their big brother Trulia.

Sarah & Les Oswald My interaction between members wasn't affected one ioda frankly. Actually, I've been waiting for a couple of years for AR to start awarding points on the Q/A platform. It's paid off in spades for me on Trulia over the past several years. I've never seen a better SEO builder.

Captain Wayne Rowlett / Florida Real Estate School Not sure how rediulous it was or wasn't frankly. It was all quite relative. I saw just as many high pointers even some ambassadores jumped on the bandwagon.

 

Points is point is points. But it's the substance and quality that really counts and I see a lot of very inane questions asked everyday on Trulia's Q/A and they only award 3 & 4 points per Q & A.
