I'd like to see ways to earn points by posting photos of stations.
There is a lot of value in these photos

Short answer: Bad idea. (Too easy to abuse.)

I'm curious, though -- why do you think there's a lot of value in these photos?

I agree with the previous responses. I do not think there is a need to provide points for a station photo. Can you imagine a stations photo getting updated several times a week or a day as members try to earn those points?

No need to provide points for posting photos. It seems to me that the general membership is doing quite well w/out the added incentive.

Being a member of Gasbuddy is less about points and more about sharing data.

Totally disagree. Photos are just extras on the MSL plus they can slow down loading the page.
