As far as I kniow, not, but it is a good idea.

Let's see what Kris has to say about it.

At least giving credits for an answer would put IBOanswer above yahoo answers, Quaora, and some others.

Let's be honest. Q/A sites are nothing without answers and these sites are earning a lot of money with adsense.

So I would expect to receive credits for an answers. I'm sure the IBO guys will take care of this and provide credits in the short term.

Currently you do not receive IBO credits on this platform.

With IBOanswers you receive "Points" which are given by asking and answering questions.  You awarded additional points for voting the questions and answers up or down.  You can also be awarded "Best Answer" if another member feels your answer is the best out of all the other answers given.  

Just like any other question and answer board, the object is be helpful and build relationships as well as authority.  Points that you earn here can really show off how much you are willing to help others.  A 1,000 points put you at an "IBO Guru" level which definitely had drawn attention to you.

Yeah but the points are worthless.

I don't look at a persons point or badges to decide if the answer they gave me is helpful or not.

And why would I work at building out another ibo platform (where they are making money) when I can answer questions on the big answer boards with millions of visitors?

I would like to help with this but giving out my best kept secrets without any sort of compensation on my part seems like a waste if my time.

And the answer that you are building a reputation as a trusted source is lacking authenticity because you have almost no traffic to thus site.
Hi Cbeachbum. This is a new addition to the IBO platform and the participation is not up to the numbers as Yahoo answers or Qoura. IBOToolbox has grown from a concept to a great platform and more avenues have been added since. Admin has done a good job of marching this platform with other notable platforms and is beating these platforms slowly. Every concept works its way slowly from A-Z. It does not jump from A-Z. So have patience and you will see how Admin reveals its plan of rewarding paticipant. I believe you were awarded 100 credits to advertise on the platform when you signed up. Patience is a virtue.

Well you do not get advertising credits for commenting here at IBOanswer however, you do receive points that for any answer submitted (not comments) for what I have seen. Each points is accumulated to increased your ranking status on this platform to a IBOguru and upwards. What you do  here does not affect the credits you will receive on the IBOtoolbox platform as both platforms are different and also utilizes different rewards system for its users although being hosted under one umbrella.

That said, I am in support of the credit code option suggested by a previous user even if it was that the credit code was issued once per week similar to marketatkris. If this was done, I am sure it would not take much persuade more IBOtoolbox members to visit and user the site and share the answers here with us as well
