Contributions

Racing Years is a web-based, free-content database project supported by our users and based on a model of openly editable content. We are a live collaboration differing from web-based or paper-based reference sources.
Any user can write and make changes to the database, except in limited cases where editing is restricted to prevent disruption or vandalism.
Many websites are written collaboratively by largely anonymous volunteers, but in Racing Years we want to give something in exchange to our users, a Contribution Points (CP) system. It is based upon the info the users upload to the database.
How can you get those CPs?

Below, we show the points system of all the fields where you can contribute.
