    points when you reach a certain amount gets you to the next level as you level up you can contribute more to the site each levels has restrictions on what you can and can not do such as how many questions you can ask and answer points have no money value towards them and there are no actual prizes learn more about points and levels here http://answers.yahoo.com/info/scoring_system

    Asking questions costs you 5 pts

    Awarding a Best Answer for your question (after 1 hr or more) gets you 3 pts back

    Answering questions awards you 2 pts

    Having your answer selected as Best Answer gains you 10 pts + 1 pt for every Thumbs-up, in excess of the number of Thumbs-downs your answer has, up to 50

    Having a question or answer removed as a violation costs you 10 pts

    You can ask and answer more questions daily when you get to higher Levels on Yahoo Answers.

    You need 25,000 points to get to Level 7.
