UPDATE: Double Points is now over, thank you so much for your amazing answering!
For a strictly limited period, you can earn an extra 2 points for every question you answer.
‘Tis the time of year for saying “thank you”, giving gifts and rewarding hard work. Our way of saying “thank you” to you, the Yahoo! Answers community – for your hard work this year – comes in the form of this special bonus. Yes, it’s DOUBLE POINTS for every question you answer– four instead of two.
Why are we doing this?
We know you enjoy earning points on Yahoo! Answers, especially to move up through the levels. But we also know it can feel like slow progress at times, like a marathon… So, for a short while, we’re giving you the chance to sprint! With double points up for grabs, it’s a golden opportunity for you to make some big gains and go for the next level.
Has it started already? When does it end?
It’s live now from December 6th and will last for a limited period of time.
Want to know when it will end? Well, we’re going to keep that a secret for now…
However, if you follow us on Twitter we’ll give regular updates of how long is left…
We’ll also notify you here, on the blog, as soon as it closes. In the meantime, make the most of it!
How do I get started?
It couldn’t be easier to get involved. Just sign-in (or sign-up if you’ve not visited before) and start answering questions. The browse categories page is a great place to start.

We think offering double points is something you will appreciate… we hope it’s not like one of those terrible Christmas presents you just want to put back under the tree. But do let us know what you really think – we won’t be offended, promise.
Also, do let us know what you think by leaving a comment.
