It was brought to my attention that I had posted a simular question today.

Seriously... there should be more incentive... I know I would be much more active on the site. Be able to purchase murchandise with our points... or something.

It is just as it looks.   The existing incentives are all "virtual"  You can...

  o  Answer a lot of questions and see your name listed in a Top 15 list
  o  Get a lot of "Good Answer!" emails to brighten your day!
  o  Accumulate points and get a [picture of a] "Certificate"
  o  Answer a lot of questions and see your name in the Hall Of Fame
  o  Get satisfaction from helping others.  
  o  Enjoy the challenge... each Question is another fun puzzle to solve!  
  o  Be flattered when total strangers say how smart you are.

  o  If you can accumulate 3000 Expert points each month, you get "Free Premium Services" which means you have plenty of Question points and don't need to look at advertisements and the Search works for you.

Some people (myself included) feel good helping others.
Im also incredibly competitive.

So I help others and score points.  It feeds two of my inner needs.
Makes me feel useful too.  Life is too short to hoard knowledge.

I have 3060 this month and 7995 combined.  How do you get premium services?  You got a link?

Premium Services on the links for your profile (but don't sign up 'till the end of the month - that way you get the full 30 days to get your next 3K points to stay a premium member)

You need to get 2005 more points, then you qualify for the No Ads, etc......

All you have to do then is keep 3000 points / month to keep the pro membership

Yes, you have to first pass 10,000 points to qualify, and 3000 a month to keep it.
When you make it, there will be a notice somewhere around your logon name that says that you have qualified and to click the link to signup for it.

10000 points? to qualify for Premium?
3000 points a month to keep Premium?

No way!!! I'll sit on here and answer questions until I have enough points for the BMW that CharlesBukowski said...

Premium services... HA!

Well... now I'm thinking about the virgins...Long ago I knew what were them... by now, I hardly remember...

About the premium points.. Does anyone know where to check how many points I have accumulated?  There is a "points this month" type deal in profile, but once upon a time, I read that there was some random date in the middle of the month where the looked at the past 30 days, and thats when they decided whether you had reached your 3000 mark.

Also, once upon a time, I had "spare time" as they call it... and I easily made 3000 points per month.  I lost my prem. services and have not been able to accumulate enough points, apparently, as I am still staring at ads and a fake search box :(

Don't know about yours, but mine seem to be keyed to the 1st of the month ( when it zeros out )

All my monthly points disappear at 00:00 on the 1st of the month but my profile says I have to get my 3k by the 18th, I guess it's to do with when you sign up for Premium.
BTW you still get a few different options in your profile in oldlook (swap "www" for "oldlook" in your browser's address bar).  I got "You've qualified!" flashing at the top of the profile options once 3K was reached (& ignored it for a while thinking it was an Ad!!)

:^) I can give you a try... but... if i get the paradise full of virgins (aka, mummy museum), are you going to borrow it from me too?

I think you are a little bit abusive... I'm working hard for those 20 points!!! All you are doing is something like..

"Mum! mum! Goofytouy does not want to let me use his BMW!!!" Nah boy, work!!!
You will grate that to me when you became an adult

PS: Here at work all people is wondering why i'm with a smile in my face...I think they are going to hit me...
