Follow the points schedule.

When Points Are Awarded

We have about 50 different “scoring events” that are running behind the scenes.  These events are constantly evolving based on feedback we get from the community.  Here are scoring events the "point buckets" that you'll see on your points page aligned

Notice: ActiveRain changes the scoring system on occasion as we release new upgrades or respond to people abusing the system.  We'll do our best to keep this up-to-date, but please use this as a reference tool only.

Points May be Deducted from Your Account

Our goal is to make our points a reward system, not to be punitive and deduct points all the time. That being said, there are certain scoring events that can be reversed (you lose the points).  Examples include:

  • Deleting a blog post
  • Deleting a comment
  • Unfollowing a member

We have a rule in the system stating that any points are locked in after six months. So, if you go in and delete an outdated blog post from 2012, you won’t be penalized.

There are also times when we will deduct points from a member's account if we feel they are blatantly abusing the points system.

View Your Points At Any Time

Members can navigate to the "Points" page on their computer or phone to see how they are tracking on points this month and to see the total points accumulated on their account.

The points are organized into smaller "buckets" so you quickly see where your engagement is strongest.

Earn 10% of the Points for Every Person You Invite

One of the fastest ways to accumulate points on ActiveRain is by inviting new members and coaching them on how to engage within the community.

When a member accepts your invitation, we attach them to your account in our database. At the end of each month, our system will award you a bonus equal to 10% of any points your invitees earned.  These points are awarded as a single lump sum.

As Ron and Alexandra Seigel say but also upvote people who answer your questions and comment back when people comment and like your blog posts. Those actions in them selves do not give you points BUT they get you loyal followers and those followers give you points with likes and upvotes. I'm sure there have been days when I've received as high as 200 points in that fashion. ALSO watch for contests. The link to contests is at the bottom of every page in the right hand column. Cheryl Ritchie . Remember, you follow me, I will follow you (there is a lot of points in that too). You like me, I like you. You upvote me, I'll upvote you.

Check the points page.  For me it was the 10 blogs/wk, 20 blog comments/day and 20 answers/day.  Now days, that 20 answers is hard to impossible to reach.

Have some haywire and tinfoil from a gum wrapper? Hot wire the odometer and you can add some zeros. But blog posts that help you do you job that are used in the email information broadcast ARE the point of this AR blog posting.
