Change the System

They undermine what I percieve as the real point of this site. We don't want people communicating just so they can get more points, we want them communicating because they have something worthwhile to say.

Just had an idea that might remedy my percieved problem (above).
1) Connect the rating system to the points system.
-Well written stories would be rewarded more, while poor ones less (or even none).
2) Reward the act of rating a story (and other forms of giving feedback).

I'm still not sure what would be a good use for the actual points... whether they should be spendable or just contribute to a ranking/merit system is still worth thought.

Do you get points for communication? I expected that you only get them for posting stories, dreams etc.
