I want to know what each user can do exactly with the points obtained on this forum?
Thank you in advance!
Have a nice week-end!
Nothing really just a way to show those who are active on the forum.
Earn Points and Badges for Helping Out

No they do not add up to rewards I wish was this what you were after or do you need further info?
I have already seen this information ''Earn Points and Badges for Helping Out''
But, it was not too much clear for me!
It is intended that points be awarded for completing task and badges. This and points for answering posts as well as posting questions is meant to motivate users to post and shows new members who is active on the forum and whose answers might be taken as useful.
That said I personally ignore them and just help out where I can.
There is or was a radio show here where the joke catchphrase was "Points mean prizes!"
Alas, that is unlikely to be the case here. All this stuff with badges and points and status is part of the gamification fad. I'm doing my best to ignore it.
