  • Thanks for correcting me Yogesh, I didn;t realize the typing mistake i made Wink

    To make it clear for you guys who are still having problems :

    • White Papers / Knowledge Base:
      1. Registered students can post maximum of 3 white papers / technical articles in a month. 40 points will be credited to your account at the end of the month for uploading white paper if your article is rated by minimum of 5 students and have an average rated value of 3.5 and above.
      2. You will get points for downloading a white paper also. You can download any number of white papers in a particular month. But you will get points for downloading 5 white papers, 5 points for each. For this point accrual will be online.
      3. You can also rate the articles. You will get 5 points at the end of the month, for each article rated by you provided that article is rated by minimum of 5 students and your rating matches average rating.

  • You dont keep getting points for every whitepaper you download.

    You stop earning points after a couple of downloads, check the FAQ section.

  • Dear Friend,

     

    Greetings, after your thread I have posted a thread named Post to Admin.

     

    I have invited some friends to show their oppostion in joining hands which will be viewed by Admin.

     

    Try that or else ask for some one to post admin's email id. That might be the solution for us.

     

    Regards,

  • @Arif - You can download max 3 whitepapers in a month, but you can download and rate any number of whitepapers in the month. There is no restriction in the number of whitepaper that you download or rate.


    @Fredrik - The email id of the admins of student rockstar is stdrkstr@microsoft.com
