The title pretty much says it all: there needs to be something to do with those points. They just sit there and aren't good for anything. Let's put them to use for prizes! It's pretty much self-explanatory, so there's not a whole lot for me to put here.

Additional Suggestions
-Suggested by Ridley Starsmore: You would get prizes at certain point levels. (hopefully, this would be retroactive.)

-Allow points to unlock alchemy components. So once you hit a certain level of points, you can buy certain components in the gold shops.

-Unlock items in a shop when you hit a certain level of points, so people with a high amount of points (the more seasoned Gaians) can buy items from a shop and sell them for a bit of a profit to the Gaians with less points.

This 3x
I close to 7k in points, dem' puppies need to go somewhere!
*edit*
Why not do both? Like at 100 points you get a small item, but at 1,00 points, you could buy a bigger item, and etc

This.

I don't really like the idea of "spending" 100 points and then only having 8600 down from 8700. That makes them seem like too much of a currency type thing.

I rather have items for levels reached.

I'd been crazy thinking that the achievement system was going to eventually lead to backwings. Silly me.

Ditto. On all of this. Every last bit of it. D: Even the backwings part. =w='

Rewards for reaching certain levels would be awesome. I'm almost at 10,000 already! biggrin

This is a great idea. if I could use the points for something, I probably wouldn't get so frustrated by the "you've just received the ___ achievement" pop ups that slow down my computer, even though I've checked the "don't show this pop up" box emotion_donotwant But I digress...

Would like to use the points to achieve level prizes instead of "spending" them. After all, one does earn them and I think we should be able to keep the points. And the more levels you hit, the better the prizes.

But with the level prizes, I think that they should be soulbound since it is each particular user doing a certain action to earn them. It would be like me wearing a 2003 sash when I came here in 2010 ... something that I've not really earned.

This.

Plus, if you spent your points like a currency, and they added better/different prizes in the future, you'd be out of luck. I know they add achievements for events and such, but it would be hard to amass a large amount of points if you've done most of the achievements already.

You have my cookie!

I would love to see prizes awarded when we accumulate a certain number of points.
