When an answer is awarded as “best” answer, are more points given based on stars received?

    No. A 'best answer' gets 10 points no matter how many stars the answer gets.

    No, the stars are just an indication of how much the OP liked or how useful they found, the answer, but they don't affect points in any way. 

  • No, you do not get any extra points based on the stars.  But what you do get is extra points for thumbs up the favorite answer receives.  So if you won the favorite answer you will get 10 points plus one point for each thumb up (up to 50).  You DO NOT lose points for a thumb down.

    No. You get more than 10 points if your answer has one or more thumb ups, 1 point for each thumb up, but only 50/thumb ups will be counted. If there are any thumb down, they cancel an equal number of thumb ups. You get at least 10 points for a best/favorite answer. The person choosing the best answer now gets 6 points instead of 3 points.
