One problem is that some of us don't think in terms of power points at all, and others think about it a lot. That second group can't imagine anyone doing anything without power points at stake, and seeing the world through that lens, they mistrust or expect the worst from anything new that might allow "unfair" raises in power points....
This brings up a good point that I haven't seen mentioned in this thread: As an editor or admin on a few pages, I don't receive any power points. No big deal. But, some of those pages I've put a great deal of effort into. Although my name does appear on the page sometimes (if I'm admin, but not if I'm an editor), the page does not appear on my user page unless I manually put it there (which at least a few of us have done in our description of ourselves). Maybe more folks would be willing to be a partner on a page if they actually received some credit. I won't lie, I enjoy seeing my power points rise. But, I always try my best to earn them. And don't let the fact that a given task earns none get in the way of doing that task well. But, as mvs says, not all folks are so magnanimous (sorry if that sounds like self-aggrandizement).
