Why does WikiAnswer have trust points?
WikiAnswers uses trust points to distinguish trustworthy, good contributors from others. Answers from contributors with lots of trust points are often well-written and helpful.

No. Trust points are an indication of how trustworthy the contributions of the contributors of the website are. Higher the trust points, the more trustworthy the contributor is.
Yes, you can. There are some who have thousands of trust points.
No, because "trust points" on this site have different meaning then "trust points" in real life.
Trust points are awarded for detailed, factual, worthwhile, legitimate answers. If you answer questions in this way, you are likely to get lots of trust points.
No, but there is an award for most trust points.
No, however, the more trust points you have, the more you are bound to be trusted - and to get more trust points! To earn trust points, all you need to do is have good quality contributions, and hopefully someone will stumble upon them and give you a trust point!
No, trust points are nondeductible.

If you have more trust points, when you answer questions, people are more likely to trust that… Read More
if they have a lot of trust points then trust them.
Typically, asking for trust points can or is discouraged. Those who earn trust points are for the most part contributing wonderful things to Answers.com which can include, nice, well organized answers. There are MANY WAYS to earn trust points though.
Answers.com Trust Points Anyone can add to your Trust Points score by clicking the thumbs up image which is on the right-hand side of the user's profile. (It is important to note that Trust Points are not a good measurement of how much you can trust the answer to a question. They are simply an indication of how trusted the last contributor is as a member of the Answers.com community.)
If it is truly a good answer you do not have to ask for trust points. No. Asking for trust points is not allowed; they are given voluntarily by others, and should not be solicited.
No. As of now, you can neither lose trust points, nor take them away from another user. Trust points cannot be deleted by anyone; once a trust point is given, it cannot be taken away.
Trust Points give you a sense of achievement. You know that someone thinks what you do is great.
Trust points say if the contributor is actually giving you a correct answer, or just writing something. The more trust points a person has, the better their contributions are. So not neccesarily.
First of all, you must be a registered member to be eligible to receive Trust Points. On your profile, your Trust Points are listed to the right under Stats: Your contributions are shown and under that are the number of Trust Points you have accumulated. In addition, your Trust Points kind of "follow" you around the site. In many places on the site, there is a number in parentheses next to your name - that… Read More
You can give a trust point on a question page by clicking 'recommend contributor' beside their username and current number of trust points. As well, you can give trust points on a user's bio page on the right side of the screen, under 'message user'. The best way to receive more trust points is by writing many quality answers.
No, there is no Wikianswer in Polish
You can't give answers trust points as such. You can give other people trust points, whose contributions you believe are worthwhile and legitimate. You can give trust points to a user by clicking Recommend below one of their answers, or on their profile, by clicking Recommend below their stats.
There is no limit as to how many trust points a person can earn on WikiAnswers. Currently, the highest number of trust points held by a person on this site is well over 8,000.
No, neither giving nor receiving trust points count as contributions.
As of January 24, 2014, Chris Whitten has 5361 trust points.
No, you are not able to hide your trust points from other users.
Your total WikiAnswers contribution points are calculated as the sum of all of the contribution points you have earned. These include first answers, edits, organizational actions, questions asked, and community contributions. All of these points come under the heading of "Contributions" in your WikiAnswers profile. Trust points are slightly different. Contributors do not directly earn these points through their contributions; they are awarded trust points by other WikiAnswers users. Therefore, trust points are not counted… Read More
Trust points do not entirely help you get hired to work for WikiAnswers, since actually getting paid to work for WikiAnswers is different from the amount of trust points you received online.
Trust points In theory, asking questions can cause someone to recommend you through your profile, which gives you a trust point. In general, though, trust points are awarded by other users based on the quality of your contributions to answers. No user earns any trust points without another user recommending him or her. Just asking a question or contributing to the answer doesn't grant anybody a trust point.
Actually nothing. Trust points are just an indicator of how trustworthy your contributions are. If someone feels your answer was good, he might recommend you, which would increase your trust by 1 point. Other perceptions of Trust Points: Most people like to have their efforts acknowledged, and I suppose that getting trust points motivates them to contribute more to WikiAnswers. It's an incentive scheme that adds to the quality of the site.
That accolade is held by Marcy who had 8,977 Trust Points on 10 July 2012.

Trust Points will be assigned to users when someone clicks "recommend contributor", at the bottom of their answer. This function is used to help newer users to know that the answerer is trustworthy. Trust points are only for answering questions, not for anything else.
Currently, the WikiAnswers system of trust points hasn't changed - you can only add trust points, and you can only recommend from a question the user has answered by going to the contributors tab and clicking "recommend".
Trust points are given by users to users. If a user finds an answer helpful then the poster of the answer enjoys seeing that they were helpful by receiving trust points from other users clicking the [recommend contributor] link.
No - it's not possible to deduct trust points. Once a trust-point is awarded, it's there permanently.
Trust points are primarily used as an indication to other users of how experienced and how trusted you are on WikiAnswers. For example if you see a user with a high number of trust points making an seemingly suspicious edit to an answer, it is most likely a useful edit. However, if you see a user with a low number of trust points deleting answers, it is more likely to be spam.
Yes, it is possible as long as you are on here long enough and people continue to recommend you! The most trust points that have been earned up to date belong to the user, Marcy. Marcy has 8,908 trust points.

Marcy from Canada who had 8,977 well deserved Trust Points on 10 July 2012.
It sort of depends what you mean. You can get trust points from people that you have given them to, but most are given at random and you never have an idea who gives them to you. The people with many trust points that I have given trust points to never knew, unless I told them and then sometimes they would give me one also. The PC answer is that you get trust points from… Read More

For example Marcy means the user Marcy has currently 1000… Read More

What Are Trust Points? When a fellow contributor or Supervisor recommends you, you receive a trust point. Trust points are points you can gain on WikiAnswers, to show that you are a trustworthy member of WikiAnswers, that your contributions are worthwhile, and very well done. Taken from the Help Center: Trust Points enable you to vote for a WikiAnswers member whose contributions you think are worthwhile and legitimate. It is important to note that Trust… Read More
Whilst this is against the Community Spirit, soliciting for Trust Points does not warrant a warning or banning.
Many contributors have zero trust points, so it would be very tedious to find and list them all.
Why don't Answerscom stats transfer between languages for example if I have 5 trust points in the English Answerscom why don't I have 5 trust points on the Spanish Answerscom?
Most people answer questions in only one language, so the situation does not come up very often, and the system is not designed to apply trust points to more than one account. Honestly, we do not answer questions for the trust points, we answer questions because we like to help people (and to advertise our erudition). This does not really require trust points. Those are just an embellishment.
