Give the point system some kind of a redeemable value.
I would like to see a point system here that has some kind of a redeemable value. A small amount of cash some kind of a prize some kind of merchandise that you can redeem your points for. Other question and answer boards do!
And it should not cost you points or money or rewards to ask a question here! other websites are paying real cash for you to ask a question.
other websites are paying you real money to answer those questions.

Yahoo once awarded Thermal tea mugs in a contest. I participated in the contest FAIRLY and the 3 prizes went to 3 point gaming cheaters, with absurd BA ratio's. I still feel I am owed that Yahoo Thermal tea mug, because I followed the rules and did not cheat.....and would have won in a FAIR contest. Just saying.

The only POSSIBLE reward I can imagine Verizon offering would be a credit toward phone or other service from Verizon. I can't see them giving away any money; that's not what they're in business for.
