My point type is set not to use decimals. Can I still give points that contains decimals?
No you can not. Whenever you are asked to enter a point value, the value is formatted based on your point type setup. So if you select not to use decimals and enter in a decimal value in a field, the fields value will be formatted without decimals so 0.40 will become 0.

Can I show my users history / log on the front?
Yes! We have several shortcodes that does just this. The myCred_history
shortcode, for example, allows you to show the current user’s log entries.
I am not interested in using new “features” that comes with updating myCred, do I still need to update?
You don’t have to update but
we highly recommend it! Besides new features and performance improvements, myCred updates also tend to contain bug fixes. Some might not affect you now but might come into play later.
Remember that most “features” in myCred are disabled by default so even if you update, you would not be forced to use these. They will simply stay in the background, ready when you are.
Do I have to use the “Add-ons”? I just want to give users points for commenting and posting.
Of course not! myCred can be a bit intimidating since it offers so many features but just remember, you decide which of these you want to use.
So if you just want to award points for logins, comments or new posts, that’s perfectly fine.
Can I change the name of my myCred installation to something else? (White-labeling)
Yes. The codex entry

filter for more details.
