I love that ning brought back leaderboards, but why accrue points if you can't spend them on anything, unless admin team chooses a way for you to redeem your points?
Old leaderboard also ranked members differently and members could spend points in the store on comments and gifts and things for their friends. This is now a moot point.
Just seems to be a wasted module.
Maybe in the future points can be used as ad credits (and ning team can add a way to show ad's on some parts of the network, for those points)
We need a way to show points earned and ways to "spend" them on the site. Maybe spend some points to rate photos, or to be featured member for a week or month or day.
Or Cash in your points (member cashes in points to paypal, ideal or stripe for cash money) Ok far fetched but cool idea?
