Ever reflect on why you hang out on The Club?
Want another way to track your contribution?
Curious about who else is on The Club and what they’re up to?
Welcome to Contribution Points. And welcome to the Contribution Leaderboard.
How do contribution points work?
Currently, the following events award contribution points:
- Daily visits
- Flags accepted
- Likes given
- Likes received
- Posts created
- Posts read
- Time read
- Topics created
What else can I do with the data?
You can change the date range, just use the drop-down in the top left.
You can also click on a profile to view their contribution points and then select to see all their activity. A cool way to learn from someone directly. Think of the leaderboard view as a community directory!
Are there any limitations?
Chat channels and direct personal chat activity don’t contribute to the contribution points as that feature isn’t currently available.
You might also notice that Ministry of Testing staff score highly along with ex-CommunityBoss Heather Reid. Well, it is our job to hang out here to spark conversations and encourage folks. Here’s a view without MoT staff if that helps. Yet MoT staff are part of the community so we decided not to exclude ourselves from the main leaderboard.
Our challenge to you is to one day see MoT Staff not in the Top 10.
The bigger picture is we’d like to explore a community contribution scoring system that also includes everything on the main MoT Platform. Contribution points for watching talks, reading articles, reviewing abstracts, etc.
This is an experiment and we’d love to get your thoughts on it. Feel free to reply to this post with your feedback.
A note about diversity
The leaderboard highlights a problem that we need to work harder to ensure The Club is more inclusive and that it celebrates the diversity of the amazing testing community. We as a community need to get more underrepresented folks on The Club.
Is there a navigation link to the leaderboard? How often is the data updated?
As there’s currently no way to navigate to it, bookmark the Contribution Leaderboard today. Enjoy and have fun with it! Points are automatically updated every 5 minutes for events of the day, and we re-calculate scores from the last 10 days once a day. You can view the leaderboard whenever you like via the following link.
