Why did you get rid of Clutch Power Points?

Until now, members could earn “Clutch Power” points for doing certain things on the site like earning followers or receiving likes for comments. While this was a way to rank active members, the cumulative nature meant newer members couldn’t easily break into the rankings. We prefer all members be welcome on equal footing and the focus be on great submissions. So, we’ve removed Clutch Power points. Don’t worry though, your badges aren’t going anywhere!
