Does Yahoo Answers' point system even have a purpose anymore? Seems it doesn't work?

    well, that is only half correct.......the point system is indeed screwed up. 

    The main, overall leaderboards have been frozen forever......and *some* category leaderboards,  also seem frozen.........but the odd thing is....some category leaderboards still work just fine. 

    In fact, if you check the P&S category,  I just passed  Bon Bon for 6th place.  Just yesterday, I was 7th and she was 6th......and now it's vice versa......so on some boards........you can still move up, and gain places on the leaderboards. 

    Why *some* seem frozen though, I do not know. 

    The J&R  leaderboard also works,  because I also recently jumped a place on that one too. 

    It is indeed puzzling why some work and others don't.

    Yes. The purpose is so users will want to level up and be able to ask and answer more.

  • Not really unless you are abscess with points.  The new level 4 is now your level 7.

    Yes, up to Level 4 (between levels 1 - 4 the points allow you to ask/answer more questions each YA day as you move up a level). Once you hit Level 4 then, no. The points currently provide no benefit (unless you count having a lot of points reduces your chance that a few posts removed as violations won't drop you to a lower user level).
