Re: [Osdc-list] Points system

Hey everyone,

Thanks for weighing in so far. I left the topic rather broad at first to see where folks were at on the spectrum.

The concept of having a points system on opensource.com was to provide the ability / framework to highlight our users and contributors.

My opinion is that I think having a ranked system may not work well. I've heard from multiple people some re-occurring themes:
- keep is simple (with references to how hackernews and reddit do it)
- be transparent about how it works

I think the main things we are interested in is to find a way to incentivize people to rate, comment, vote in polls, and vote up/down. Do you think a points system would accomplish that?

Hi opensource.com users.

We just posted a discussion on our Facebook page about adding a points system to opensource.com - http://www.facebook.com/opensourceway?v=app_2373072738#!/topic.php?uid=162962298056&topic=18458

Feel free to help start the conversation there, or, if you'd like, we can collect feedback via the mailing list as well.

*Points system*
We're looking at installing a Drupal point system module on the site. What do you think?

What other sites do you use that have points systems that you like? Why do you like them?
