Q'S: What Are EP Points, How do I Earn Them And How Do I Use Them?

POINT BLANK.

HOW DO YOU EARN POINTS?

You earn points from many areas on the EP site.  
Some areas where you earn points are:
Q&A   - The Tab for Questions and Answers.  If you answer someones question and they select your answer as "Best Answer" you earn points.
There is also a 'QUESTION OF THE DAY' 

'CAPTION OF THE DAY' is a game which features a picture and you write in a short one sentence caption for the picture, the winner of this game also earns points. 

You may also earn points by writing blogs and stories.  Maybe someone can confirm this.  

 
HOW MANY POINTS DO YOU HAVE & WHERE DO YOU FIND THEM?
On your profile page, about half way down in the middle of your page, past 'Experiences' , past 'How are you Feeling' is your 'ACTIVITY SUMMARY' where it will list how many stories you have written, how many people have commented on your stories etc.  It will also list your point status as to how many points you have earned and spent. 

"You have earned a total of 18011 points and spent 15500. Spend them at the gift shop!"

WHAT ARE POINTS USED FOR?
