The points on italki

Hi everyone !

First of all, I want to wish you a happy new year.

I would like to know if the points we gain on italki can be used to pay a lesson. If not, how can they be useful? It could be a good idea, couldn't it? For example 100 points could correspond to 1 ITC...

Is it only a way to say : "youpi ! I have a lot of points" as it is the case on instagram "youpi ! I have a lot of followers"... I am kidding in telling that even if it doesn't seem too exagerate.

If really they could be used to pay a lesson i would like to give my points to a friend. So would it be possible ?

Thank you for your answers :)

Sophie I do not have facebook ! My friends and family are in real life, only.

Okay... All apologizes Laura... I didn't want to offend you.

I think points in italki are like friends in facebook, so don't expect to get anything from them! I must admit that not getting anything in return makes sense because it would be very expensive for italki if they had to redeem them for classes or whatever it was. 


I would eliminate them because I like the way the website has been working so far. You help others because you want to do it, not expecting to be given anything in return. I am afraid that many people would start writting posts and correcting / answering just to get more points. So, let's leave it the way it is, if we could get rid of these points it would be better, though.

I have 264230 points.  Wouldn't it be nice if it was somehow turned into cash?

I second what Mohammed said… it's about how involved a user is in this community.
