Adjustments to the GeoNet Point System

Blog Post created by timothy_hales-esristaff Employee on Dec 31, 2015

This past year a lot of GeoNet members have earned points from participating in the community. A few of our members provided some great feedback on areas where we could improve. The feedback was reviewed to identify suggestions that would benefit the community as a whole.


The following point changes will be made effective January 1, 2016:


  1. Tagging your content is important, so the Tag, you're it mission will now be worth 5 points.
  2. Researcher will no longer be repeatable. Similar to other missions related to creating content you will only be able to earn it one time.
  3. The Helper mission will now be awarded when you receive 3 "helpful" ratings on your discussion responses.
  4. Providing a correct answer and earning the Valedictorian mission will now give you 250 points.
