Why didn't I get points for submitting Endless Quiz questions?

Kacparov

Today I submitted 7 Endless Quiz questions, but I didn't get any points - they stayed 6600. Shouldn't I get 100 per every question?

Those are my questions:

Edit What does the Polish word "pat" mean? Jun 12 2009 04:21 AM
Edit "Wieża" is the Polish word for which piece? Jun 12 2009 04:17 AM

Read somewhere in the forums that people we creating questions just for points.

Seems that was true. So no more points now.

100 points per question?!? I can see why people would abuse that system. Those cheats. Almost every single one of my points has come from individual posts- with one or two blogs here or there.

Idiots have spammed it to death and now it's utterly useless. The point of the endless quiz was an exchange of knowledge not a way to grab points which means absolutely nothing. If you post for points then you do it for the wrong reasons.

Why do you care? Those points are useless. They should make them fungiable by letting us trade so many points for a T-shirt or a free membership or something.

That was the case at one point, but it only led to spamming the forums and endless quiz. It would be nice to have a rating scale for the relevance of posts but that would never work on a site like this.
