Upon registering, you might have noticed a new addition to your sidebar; a Droplet widget.

Droplets are similar to reddit karma, in that you get it by commenting or posting on the website.  Unlike Reddit Karma, however, Droplets can actually be used for something!

Wait, Internet Points can Actually do Something?!?!

That’s right.  Users can use Droplets to buy things in the Blender Mentor store, given they have enough Droplets to pay for a given product.  That way you can tell people that you got internet points without shame.

 

So now you know!  What are you waiting for?  Go out there and start earning points!
