If points are to be an indication of how active and helpful a member is, giving 100 points for every year someone has been a member skews that purpose.

example: I have have been a member for only 1 year and have 44 posts, I'm at level 13 with 178 points.

There are many members that have only posted 5 times but are at level 21 with 405 points because their join date was 2012. There is a good chance they are no longer active in the community.

the numbers have no meaning unless you post several hundred times a year.

Hi @gothampixel, thanks for the valuable feedback! The level system will probably be tweaked a few times to find the sweet spot. However, what you mentioned should indeed be changed. I've looked at it and we're changing it to 10 points for a 1 year member, 20 points for a 2 year member, etc. I think this is a better setup! Tonight we will do a recalculation on points and also award badges to users with enough points/posts/years member.

Let us know if you have any more feedback.

Suggestion: You know how to make the forums super active? Say at every 500 points of relevant material. Send the productive community member a roll of your super cool silver PLA filament.

    Rewards as in "free stuff" should not be tied to a post counter, else we might end up with more or less spam posts just to increase the count.

    However, a nice appproach would be to use "best answers" counter instead - or "likes" received.

      • S-Line Firmware 8.3.0 was released Nov. 20th on the "Latest" firmware branch.
        (Sorry, was out of office when this released)

        This update is for...
        All UltiMaker S series  
        New features
         
        Temperature status. During print preparation, the temperatures of the print cores and build plate will be shown on the display. This gives a better indication of the progress and remaining wait time. Save log files in paused state. It is now possible to save the printer's log files to USB if the currently active print job is paused. Previously, the Dump logs to USB option was only enabled if the printer was in idle state. Confirm print removal via Digital Factory. If the printer is connected to the Digital Factory, it is now possible to confirm the removal of a previous print job via the Digital Factory interface. This is useful in situations where the build plate is clear, but the operator forgot to select Confirm removal on the printer’s display. Visit this page for more information about this feature.

      • Ultimaker Cura 5.6 stable released
        Cura now supports Method series printers!
         
        A year after the merger of Ultimaker and MakerBotQQ, we have unlocked the ability for users of our Method series printers to slice files using UltiMaker Cura. As of this release, users can find profiles for our Method and Method XL printers, as well as material profiles for ABS-R, ABS-CF, and RapidRinse. Meaning it’s now possible to use either Cura or the existing cloud-slicing software CloudPrint when printing with these printers or materials
