  • Well, maybe the MSDN, TechNet and Expression Profile FAQ is not clear on this - and it should be clarified there as well. However it's detailed on TechNet Wiki, in the Forums Help (FAQ) article.

    You won't get points for your replies (marked as answers) for your own questions.

    Marking your own replies as answers does not give you points.

  • The point that you won't get any points is for not boosting up your points.
