Tech Points

Tech Points are a lot like war: as the song says, "What are they good for? Absolutely nuthin'!"

They're good for asking questions, or if you can make it to the top 5, bragging rights. (I was there once, till the smart people came *sniff sob*)

Tech Points are good for asking questions, and not much else at this time. High point value questions are apt to get a larger number of responses than low point value questions.

Maxwell Edison (#2 on the points list) uses his points to gather information on where technology is headed.
He also used his points to bring attention to the need for a link that was once disabled on the site.

Beyond that, the points are a way to keep score.

Ponts are completely irrelevant, until you answer a question and the person closes it without awarding your points, at which point, TR Points are extremely important.
I still haven't figured out why, but not getting your allocated points is a bigpiss off.

Tech points has no benefit other the the satisfaction that you have provided aanswer that may have been of help to one of your peers,it was stated long ago that thier was a program being considered to use the tech points as reward points,that was before changes was made,so now you can only use them to award points to others depending on the degree of difficulty to answers that help solve a problem
