How Do I Earn Points? Our community thrives on the participation of its community members. Our Community Recognition Program provides opportunity for active members to distinguish themselves and for newcomers to get acquainted with folks in our dynamic, growing community. We believe that people who are creating value for others should receive recognition for their participation, contribution and support of our online community. The process of earning points is pretty straight-forward. Points are associated with various activities on the site. And when someone does that activity they will receive that many points.
