I think Dr. Bob just want to reward everyone for posting, not just the "good" replies. That's what I had in mind.

I think people would post regardless if you get points or not. Getting points would just be a bonus reward, so you feel good about helping others out and you have tangible proof of your helpfulness. You can look at all the points you have and think, wow, I've helped a lot of people! Then you feel good about yourself.

I wouldn't think of it as competition. For me it would just be about competing against myself, trying to help out more people than I did last week or something.

I dunno, that's how I see it. I'm sure Dr. Bob doesn't want to discourage people from posting.

Seems like lots of Babblers don't like my idea though, so I won't be disappointed if Dr. Bob decides not to do this.

I guess ideally this points system would make people feel good about their contributions, but maybe Babblers will think in a negative way, negating the positives of this system, in which case, this wouldn't be helpful.

Maybe Babblers will have to learn to think more positively before something like this will work.
