What are the points for exactly?

They are a "for fun" ranking mostly. The more point you have, the more posting privilege, such as instant live posting to encyclopedia entries.

Welcome to the Vine.

I totally don't see them as "for fun" I see them as priviledges, especially the live posting: I always see little misspells or grammar mistakes or just extra words (often in my own entries) I would correct them but... I dunno, it feels weird to correct something in 2 seconds and not actually see it for a like..15 hours. I think when I make an entry I always get all OCD over it and sit around comicvine waiting for it to get approved or not, like im hooked until I see that approved message to see whether it was accepted or not and how many points I got, and then I go look at it and read over it or look over it and double check everything I wrote. Anyhoo I'm getting there. (Halfway mark at this point I think :D)

One day you'll be able to trade your points for Vodka or pretty pics.

I got obsessive about it too. After 1000 you get live edit.

I'm at 357, and I feel like they are important for some reason.

I use them as a motivation system to make the site better. I'm at 5000, and when I get to 6500, I'll be on the Top Ten list. That'll be cool. I also sort of like trying to pass people-I'm aiming for Blue_Shield right now.

My highest is History Of Comics, and that was a report for Social Studies. I build my points in increments of about 200, with a 400 every once in a while.

If you think that's crazy, go to the Hank Pym, Mr. Majestic, Booster Gold, Helspont, or Guy Gardner pages.

Or Aunt May. Someone really is a May fan.

Anyway, keep up the good work boys and girls, rumor has it that at 10.000 points you'll get your own Lunar Lander. With Blackjack... and hookers.

Patience. At this point, only Red L.A.M.P., Captain Cascader, and G-Man approve submissions. They do this on their free time, and always get to it as soon as they can.

The points will come.
