usefulness of points and levels

Recommended Posts

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 There is a good chance they are no longer active in the community.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.

    • "Back To The Future" using Generative Design & Investment Casting
      Designing for light-weight parts is becoming more important, and I’m a firm believer in the need to produce lighter weight, less over-engineered parts for the future. This is for sustainability reasons because we need to be using less raw materials and, in things like transportation, it impacts the energy usage of the product during it’s service life.
