Why not leave ”points” to CubePoints?
I suppose in part it’s due to there being no detailed “what’s it for?” page typed up for this plugin yet, but I really don’t get what points has got to do with this plugin. You played the “competition is good!” card and I wholeheartedly agree, but I think the good type of competition is the one that offers a different solution to the same problem, not an identical solution all together. So why bother with points when CubePoints is already so exceedingly good at it? I think you’d be better off integrating with CubePoints and working together with the author, as I don’t see a lot to gain from this competition except a race for feature parity.
This plugin has got something great going for it with the “Awards” system. Why not build more firmly on top of that, instead of meddling with a points system alongside it?
On a slightly different note, my “site exploration” idea might be of interest.
