New Recognition system needs some tuning RRS feed

  • General discussion

  • As I'm sure many people have noticed the new recognition system has been rolled out. As interesting and as neat as it is I think it needs some tweeking. Primarily around moderators points and marking their own posts as the answers. I've been a moderator of a forum for a long time with three other moderators. I've been the main one who has been keeping our forum clean by being the most active answerer of questions and by being the one who goes through the back log of unansewered questions and either mark the correct post that was not selected by the poster or attempt to answer the question myself. As a result a large majority of my answers were marked so by me. The other moderators are aware of this and would agree that the points were allocated appropriately. As a result my recognition points are a 1/3rd of what they used to be and other people who are way less active on the forums than I am have much higher recognition. Is this something that can be revisited?

  • I will spend more time on this over the coming weeks to see if there is another way to ensure 'effort' is more appropriately reflected. This might mean some new achievements or something along those lines. Achievements are really the place we want to highlight the effort side of things, where points are more intended to reflect the community perception of a user's contributions.

    Realize yesterday's deployment was a pretty substantial effort. Now that we've made it this far we are in a better position to make adjustments.

    Thanks for the feedback, I appreciate it.

  • Hi Brent and Sean
    Congratulations for the hard work that you and your team are doing to improve the organization of this complex issue of recognition.
    I propose that in their review discuss this case: I have 17 simple projects to the public free download in SkypeDrive, progressively, to the extent that seeks to address some requirements in the forum and would like to know how to report this as it is rated to be considered in the scheme of recognition.
    I am developing a few projects and would like to follow the proper procedure to generate some recognition and whether this is worth it or better to focus my efforts in another direction.

  • Would the simple projects be appropriate for the galleries or codeplex?

  • Good question, Sean, these projects are meant to show the users point of Lightswitch features, so do not provide a complete development ready for production.

    Are there plans/efforts to recognise Codeplex contributions within the new recognition system?

  • Plans and efforts, yes. Codeplex is working on the profile integration piece at this time to sync the different profiles. We'll then look to add codeplex activities into the recognition system.

    Then that sounds like great projects for the samples gallery at http://code.msdn.microsoft.com. There are other lightswitch projects up there already!

  • This is Sean, and there are 13 projects, but I have the impression that they are great, I'm not sure if my type of little project by features have a place there?

  • I've reached out to the community manager for the lightswitch applications to see what she thinks. I think any community contributions on Lightswitch would be awesome! :)

  • So yes, indeed there is a call to get Lightswitch apps on to the Gallery: http://blogs.msdn.com/b/lightswitch/archive/2011/06/07/submit-your-lightswitch-samples-amp-get-featured-on-the-developer-center.aspx

    So go for it! :)
