I am nearing my 1000 points and went on to look at the requirements again and noticed that you need 400 points awarded to you. So this suggestion is to the community here. If someone helps you, GIVE THEM POINTS. I am bad at it also, but I know that the majority of my posts and time spent in the forums has been to help others working towards this reward.
Any plus ones that people should be more generous with their points when being helped :wink:
