Pro Suggestion: Points Answered

Ok, so I thought this was a pretty good idea that could make people want to buy more Pro Memberships, and publish more Instructables. What if for getting different levels of featured, you could get points to trade in for different things. For example: Channel features could get 10 points, category features could get 25 points, and homepage features could get 50 points.

Then, you could get points for being in the newsletter, and for getting featured on the flash box on the front page. You could trade the points in for more pro memberships, digital patches, stickers, or maybe if you saved up enough, a laser etched Leatherman.

What do you think?

I really like this idea! :D
But they already reward us for being featured, a homepage feature gets you 3 months of Pro free! But... I think that's why they also introduced lower level features... You won't be awarded free Pro if you get a lower level feature.

I really like this idea though, perhaps we could be awarded say... 3 free patches for a low level feature? Or like you said, earn a buncha points and redeem them.

(Oh the memories of playing skeeball at the local arcade until my pockets were stuffed with tickets :D )

I was just thinking... other then buying more pro memberships, how do you get more patches?

Well, with the 3 months free of Pro that I got from Krypto (Thanks again, coolest camel in the world!) I got 3 patches. Along with the other 3 months free I got ( at the same time) from Frenzy for the "I made it Challenge", but I didn't get those patches right away.  Apparently they are given to me when it starts being used, ( I already activated it, but it only goes into effect in a few months), so for right now I only have 3 patches.  

You can get more by being featured, earning three free months, and it comes with 3 free patches.  But there should be an easier way to this... 
 Perhaps when someone gets featured they should be given the option of getting some free Pro, or some patches, or even something else. There's gotta be another online feature people would want.

Is there any way to buy patches?
