    I've been wondering that myself. So far it's 2 points for an answer and 10 for a best answer. -5 is for a question. But as far as what the points are good for? I don't really know. I feel like I'm on Whose Line is it Anyway and the points don't matter. Although I did fall across a thing that said that the points were sort of to show you how many times a person has answered. If you want to know that just place your cursor on their profile and it tells you. Good Luck and happy answering.
