Here are the rules for determining the overall point scores for the Weekly Competitions here on Speedsolving.com, as given to me by Mats Bergsten, who does the weekly scoring:

(edit: new events added from Jan 2020)

In each event you get:

a.

b.

Note that in blindfolded solves, you must either get a successful result, or attempt all scrambles for that event for a DNF result, in order to get participation points for that event.

Note that with 3x3x3 Multiple Blindfolded, you do not get the participation points for 2 * the number of cubes if your result is a DNF.

The points were originally assigned by Arnaud van Galen to attempt to represent the amount of effort (time) required to participate in each event. Thus, it is a reward for devoting effort to the competition.
