Hello Meows,

To encourage users to contribute positively to the Yahoo Answer website, Yahoo has introduced a Point System. There are also levels whis give more access to the site. They have no real world value and only to indicate how active you are on the site.

Visit the following web link for detailed information regarding the scoring system:

http://answers.yahoo.com/info/scoring_system

Your point will be 0 at the starting. When you answer the question posted by another user, you will get 100 points and enter level 1. You will be in level 1 till you acquire 249 points. In the 1st level, you will be able to ask 5 questions, answer 20 questions, post 10 comments, give 10 starts and give 25 votes per day. The limits change for each level.

You will loss 5 points for posting a question and gain 3 points for choosing the best answer for your question. Visit the above web link for detailed information.

Hope this helps.
