I'm sure for those of you who have used dropbox you remember that you get extra space for taking a tour (I think if my memory is accurate) of dropbox. I've been seeing some complaints lately about how newbies aren't researching before hand and the such.
When I joined, I remember skipping the faq about questions (being a newbie). I believe if we reward reading the faq somehow, it might be beneficial. (However we may need to increase the points needed for certain things so that someone can't make an account and have a ton of benefits fast and spam)
