Sorry the points are so confusing. Perhaps I should have directed you to your SparkPoints page www.sparkpeople.com/myspark/sparkpoints.as
where you will find a listing of total possible points given each day for different activities as well as information about many of the activities. I'm sorry I didn't provide you with helpful information. You can only receive a max a 3 points a day for participating in a poll so even if you do two or three different polls, you will only get SparkPoints for the first one you do. Please check out the link and the max daily points and perhaps that will address some of your concerns.
If you have additional questions, please let us know.
