I don't know what are points in my profile. And how can I benefit from these points.
Perhaps one day italki will let me exchange mine for a Ferrari.
I can but hope.
As was said above, they don't really do anything yet - they are apparently for future use! I use them to challenge myself. For example, I say, "This week I will earn 100 points in answering questions." That helps me to stay active and motivated on italki. :)
yeah Mumtaz is right. You get points for participating in discussions and for correcting notebook entries (for example).
It is reflecting how active you are and how you help other people, in theory. But actually it is not very reasonable because someone who doesn`t participate in the discussion or notebook entries might be a perfect language exchange partner anyway, no matter if he or she has the points or no.
Ahmed,, right now you can't benefit from these points. I hope in the future italki change that and these points become useful in any way.
Me too, I'm trying to gain points for the future prize....lol.
