The New Points System



    With the transition to a new system with new (and different) features, we have revamped the points system.  Here are the activities on the site for which we award points, and the value associated with them:


    ActivityNumber of Points
    Posting or responding to discussion.1 point
    Correctly answered discussion questions.10 points
    Helpful responses to discussion questions.5 points
    Creating new documents.10 points
    Creating new blog posts.10 points
    Create idea.10 points
    Add comment for idea.2 points
    Vote for an idea.1 points


    Here are the different point levels and the graphic indicators associated with them:


    Point Range
    10,000+ Points
    3,000 -- 9,999 Points
    1,000 -- 2,999 Points
    100 -- 999 Points
    25 -- 99 Points
    2 -- 24 Points
    0 -- 1 Point



    NOTE: All of your content and activity has been brought over from the old site, and the points have been recalculated to match these values; most people remain close to the same relative "position" as they were on the old site (top users are still on top, new users are still on the bottom, etc.)
