After the transition to new interface on MakeUseOf, I’m not getting any points for answers or comments I’ve posted.
Well, Makeuseof's own FAQ says comments earn points: "Reward points are earned for various actions such as commenting, sharing articles and answering questions at MakeUseOf Answers...." but then directs you to a list which doesn't including commenting or answering questions as ways to earn points.
Looking at the list it's pretty clear all MUO cares about is advertising the site. Things which make the site genuinely more useful, like providing good answers to questions, are not rewarded. A Like on facebook on the other hand, which doesn't do a thing directly to improve the site? Yeah, sure, you'll points for that!
I've answered a few questions lately. But with absolutely no feedback, reward or rating why have a reward and/or rating system in place at all? I feel much better helping people out on low-key forums rather than on this ultra-commercial site and that's where I will be spending my limited time now.
We no longer award points for comments or Answers, though we may introduce this in future.
Ok I got it!!
No points? Why am I wasting my time answering things here?
You are not wasting your time Justin, you get points for the likes you get on the answers.
No you don't...
Then , thats frustrating....
