For Newbies Only: New Ways To Build Your Points

Active Rain points detailThe points thing.  It's addictive.  It's what keeps us engaged when (as has happened to me this past week) other pressures of life take us away from "the Rain."

Unique among social media outlets, the Active Rain Real Estate Network rewards its members for interacting with each other by awarding points for various actions.


You're already familiar with points awarded for (1) commenting on another's blog, and (2) posting a Blog Entry.

But how does a newbie gain additional points?  Active Rain has been working on this, and this past week you may have noticed something new.


You get points for logging in each day.  100 points!  "Why?" you may have wondered.  There are many members of Active Rain who joined, were very active for a period of time, and have disappeared.  But there they have remained, inactive Rainers with high visibility. 

Whoever thought up the "points for logging in" is a genius.  It gives you--the active newbie--a chance to pass the "deadwood" and be recognized for your active participation!


This isn't new, but you should know that when you write something exceptional enough that someone else reblogs it, you are rewarded, both in terms of points and (more importantly,) with additional Google juice!


Are you being spammed from time to time?  Before you delete that comment, report it by clicking "report a concern" before clicking "delete."  Not only will you help the AR community, you'll be rewarded with points for your good deed.

Blog on!

Donald I am not a newbie but I sure appreciated the info.  I was wondering what the new "logged on" points were.
