no more points

I think TR has abolsihed points. A Question now is just a discussion with a different designation, so it can go on forever.

There is a icon

with "Did This Help"
For each person that helped in a meainingful way, you can select this option.
But I dont think that the question closes anymore, just kind-of fades away.

TechPoints have been discontinued...

The system was confusing and heavily abused, so we tossed it. Instead, we list the number of Helpfuls each member has (look in the parentheses to the right of your username). These factor in all the Accepted answers under the old system. Today, if someone gives you a useful answer in a Question, you can mark it as Helpful. Just navigate to the post, and there will be a Mark Helpful button next to the Save button.

Also, we no longer offer close functionality, mostly because no one used it much anyway. Questions die off and cease activity naturally without the need to support the extra function, so we just simplified. The best way to keep people from posting is to mark a response as Helpful, and that way they'll know he answer has already been found.
