Earn CORE Points

CORE Points are a fun way to recognize Members who are engaging with the community. The more you do in the platform, the more points you earn and the more points you earn the more likely you will end up on our "Most Active Members" feed on the homepage!

Upon signing in, you will see your point summary, which shows your current engagement point total. Engagement points are awarded based on your activity in CORE.

There are two subsets that are included in your engagement point total:
  • Contribution points are awarded based on content that you create.
  • Reputation points are awarded when your content is recommended or marked as the best answer.
See the list of engagement items below that'll earn you CORE Points.
