New to ANA.........what do I do with my points??!!

Hi All,
I see that when I post or reply I get "points" what is the end goal with those?  
Thanks!

there is no end goal unless you are a junior (YN) collector.  Basically its just a way for the more competitive to keep on contributing and watching their standing increase.  Mike B has over 100000 points but that just gives him the number 1 position, nothing more.

All points do is show ones activity. That's all. I'm disabled so I'm home all day. I have a collection I share with everyone. There is no gold  coin or brass ring. They can tell how you get your points. Doesn't matter if your number  one or last we are all still just collectors.

 the points system has no correlation to the YN program FYI

@ LWH But isn't there an indirect benefit?  If you blog consistently (but not too much at any given time) you are credited with auction bucks.  So participation counts for YNs and not for non-YNs.

Please. Understand what the Moke said. We are all in different positions . I'm home like I said or in a doctor's office. I have a large collection like I said so i share  the information with you. I lern from your feedback. You never stop learning. It's a big world lots of coins. Don't think your getting something . I do it for the love and passion of the hobby. If your here for points your in the wrong place. Try stamps!!

@Moke,  actually, no, because points don t enable you to blog. Points are just another result of blogging. Really, the only way points and YN dollars are connected is they come from the same source. But they still aren't a cause of each other. Rather like two brothers from the same parents; they come from the same source, the parents (blogs), but Jim(YN dollars) would still be there, with or without his brother Bob (points)
