Some members has expressed that we should provide additional opportunities for them to earn points. So, we are going to start awarding more bonus points to members who make helpful, interesting, or unique contributions to the network. This may include but is not limited to writing interesting and unique blog posts, answering questions in the forums, etc. These points are awarded at our discretion, but are meant to encourage members who help build a healthy real estate community.
Bryan Tutas was the first recipient of a 1,000 point bonus for having the both the most interesting (as rated by members) and most commented on blog posts yesterday. He says ActiveRain is his first try at blogging, and so far he's been writting some good stuff that we've all been enjoying. Be sure to check out his blog if you haven't already.
