Beginning June 1, 2014 we will no longer be awarding points for comments posted to the Symantec Connect site-- this includes comments on forum discussions, blogs, and any other kinds of content posted on Symantec Connect. (Comments have previously been awarded at the rate of 1 point per comment.) In addition, the number of points awarded for a verified solution to a forum discussion will increase from 35 points to 50 points. All other points for content will remain the same.
We believe that this creates an incentive for all Symantec Connect users to provide thoughtful, useful feedback on the site. In addition, this will help minimize any "comments for points" behaviors that may be occuring.
As always, we thank you for your participation on the Connect community.
