Scene points are a way of measuring how trendy or scene someone is. Also called scene cred. Teenagers used to joke about scene points but now more and more scenesters are taking it seriously.

As a scene kid, I don't really worry about earning scene points. After a while, you just start doing scene things without having to think about it.

There are ways to incorporate your own style into your look while still being a scene kid. Follow these guidelines to earning scene points and do what feels comfortable. Either way you're still kind of a conformist, but whatever. You can't please everyone no matter WHAT you do or look like so if being a scene kid appeals to you, then wtf, just go for it!
things that will give you scene points:

GENERAL:
-being sickly thin (can be accomplished by being vegan or developing an eating disorder)
-being totally conceited, or just acting like it
-going to hardcore shows
-having myspace, livejournal, aim, etc (extra points for every X or scene word in your username)
-using a lot of scene lingo
-being artistic (desEnter away message text here.igning your own clothes, taking pictures, writing poetry, being in a band)
-shopping at thrift stores/good will
-Claiming to be at least two of the following: vegetarian, vegan, straight edge, bisexual, hardcore, unique (whether you are or not is a completely different story)
-being pale
-hanging out at the mall, cafes, shows, any place in public where there might be other scene kids (I mean, what's the point of spending an hour on your hair and makeup if you're just gonna sit around at home?...unless of course you're taking myspace pictures)
-collecting hello kitty, pokemon, carebears, etc
-staying on myspace til 4AM
-Dating a scene person of either gender (regardless of what gender you are)
