How do you earn points in the community?

Question asked by kgastaldo Employee on Oct 6, 2016

The new platform allows us to set point values for certain actions in the community. We want to recognize and reward those of you who are creating helpful content and helping other members. We also want to incentivize everyone to participate and to keep the content updated and relevant. If you've got a question, don't be shy about asking - you'll earn points for your engagement! If you have time to do some clean up - add tags to posts, mark things as outdated, edit spacing errors from migration, etc., you'll earn points as well.

In addition to all these ongoing activities, we are going to start creating quests (Jive terminology) around certain actions you could take. Right now, we just have the on boarding one - an easy way to snag 100 points. When new quests are available, we'll post to let you know!
