Thats what I had thought as well, but then I saw someone posting about filling it in and getting access and I noticed they had less points than me. So I went to my profile and it seemed I had everything, but apparently not
Computers have been intelligent for a long time now. It just so happens that the program writers are about as effective as a room full of monkeys trying to crank out a copy of Hamlet.
As your points increase, it symbolizes that your knowledge and skill increase too. Later it becomes an addiction to be the best of the best. Eventually after months of study and hard work, you will find that you are in an altogether different zone.
This practice increases your knowledge about the field in which you work. Please note one thing :
"Code Project" is one of the state of Art on line institute which enhances your :
3)Patience(Most important virtue)
5)Humbleness(this is what i have experienced)
and the top most virtue :
The Desire to help
Please note this is an exercise which help developers to grow both as a developer and an individual(if you take it seriously).
The points which you earn here will ensure that you reach the epitome of all the qualities i just mentioned above. Write articles, study hard, solve doubts. You should make sure people are relieved from their doubts because:
Half knowledge is far dangerous than no knowledge
Try speaking or conversing with any of the MVPs or people with maximum points when you ask a doubt or any question in any of the forum as a matter of fact. You will be amazed at their knowledge and their wit, and their experience.
So when you gather those many points, then i will ask you:
what is this point ??
how to use this point ??
what should i do with it ??
These points don't give you any super power, but they are a reflection of your knowledge and skill.
I apologize if i am sounding rude, i am not being rude, but a little passionate.
Passion + Compassion + Knowledge =

This is why I changed my mail from "correct" to "incorrect" and back to "correct" again, because I tried to find the "Mail Confirmation Stuff" - I failed, and others too: Where can I find the "confirmation button"? (without posting here ...)
As per this[^] thread, Chris, I suspect that this member may require a little explanation from you on the use of sock-puppets and such. This morning I found that he had deleted some of his answers and then resubmitted the same ones again. Miraculously they were accepted by the same sock-puppet account again.
I have noticed that some users have colorful display names and some of them have used bold characters in their display names. How it can be done ? are they using HTML tags in their names ? and what specific tags can we use in our display name ?
