Here's a thought, folks-at-Microsoft: make points decay.

There are plenty of well-tuned memorization algorithms out there; all of them require that you reacquaint yourself with stuff you've done/remembered once so that you really learn it. If you want Ribbon Hero to really, truly, deeply teach people how to use Microsoft product, then make it so my points fade depending on how long its been since I successfully performed a given task using a given piece of functionality.

I uninstalled today because I have 84008 points and nothing left to "learn", but get this: I bet you I've forgotten how to do a LOT of the things that Ribbon Hero acquainted me with. I'd never have uninstalled if I knew this was a perpetual game designed to make me learn my Microsoft computer hacking skills cold.

All this said, Ribbon Hero 2 is clearly awesome. Keep up the fantastic work.
