Although they don't really matter too much, points are still a good incentive to help with solving problems. In addition, some of the prizes are pretty cool :)
Vote up the below comment if you advocate adding points back, while vote down the below comment if you advocate removing points, like what we have now.
If you would like, please provide additional reasons for the implementation/non-implementation of points.
As Brilliant mathematics said,
"We are still evaluating the fate of points."
