You lose 5 points for every question that you ask.

You do not get gifts for points. You do get more privileges and credibility.
The point system is there mainly, I believe, to encourage answers. It's at least some recognition. I think the question cost is there to slow down spammers.

you're making factors with the aid of answering questions and vote casting, that are relatively worth 2 factors and a million element respectively. in case you answer a question nicely, and are special perfect answer, you will benefit one extra 10 factors. Yahoo! solutions deducts factors for asking with a view to motivate human beings to respond to extra suitable than they ask. seem on the call, the positioning is extra relating to the solutions than the questions, even however you could no longer have the solutions with out the questions.

If you live outside the USA you get points only - no gifts.
US residents have recently had the opportunity to receive promotional items - water bottles, coffee mugs, etc depending on their points level.
I guess Yahoo doesn't value international participation too much.
But hey - Welcome to the circus!
