The power of community breaks down all barriers to learning. Community is all about learning from each other while sharing tips and best practices related to e-learning. And what makes this process engaging and interesting is earning incentives every time you contribute something to the community. Every contribution is significant and goes a long way in establishing your creds as an e-learning expert, ready to take on the next challenge. From questions to blogs, testimonials to webinars, your contribution also helps your fellow e-learning professionals become better at their job.
Each level you attain, reinforces your position as a community expert and the transition to a community leader or influencer depends on the journey from a Wizard to Legend. The incentives you earn at each level strongly encourage you to move on to the next level.

Performing various activities on eLearning community (like answering questions, writing blogs/articles etc.) give you an opportunity to score points and enhance your level as a Product expert. This is how it works: You start at “Newbie” Level with 0 points. From this point onwards till one calendar year (i.e. 365 days) you should try to contribute and move up the levels upon achieving their respective thresholds.
Remember, each time you attain a new level, your current points are reset, and your calendar year starts (i.e. 365 days) then, to move to the next level. If you are unable to score enough points to get upgraded to next level, your level will change corresponding to the points you acquired in your last calendar year. And also your current points will get reset to the points you acquired in your last calendar year. For example: If your current level is Explorer with 50 points, and in upcoming calendar year, you only gain 60 points (summing to 110 points). At the end of the year you will still be an Explorer but your points will get reset to 60 points.
If I am a Master, but I don’t score more than 50 points in a year, what happens to my level?
You become a Newbie.
If I am a Master, but attain more than 50, but less than 150 points in a year, what happens to my level?
You become an Explorer.
If I am a Master, but attain more than 150, but less than 500 points in a year, what happens to my level?
You become a Guide.
If I am a Wizard and I gain more than 1000 points in a year, what happens then?
You remain a Wizard. The new points get added to your existing points.
If I am a Legend and I gain more than 5000 points in a year, what happens then?
You remain a Legend. The new points get added to your existing points.
How many points do I get if I join the portal?
As a new user, you start at zero and you become a Newbie.
How much points should I score in a calendar year to maintain my current level, if I am unable to attain the next level’s threshold points?
You need to score at least your current level’s threshold points in upcoming calendar year from the point of attainment of your current level, in order to maintain your current level (considering you do not achieve the next level in this process).
What happens if I am at 30 points and fail to reach the next level?
In a calendar year, if you are unable to achieve 50 points (minimum to become an Explorer), on the next day after the calendar year ends, you shall become a Newbie and start at 30 points.
If I gain 50 points in a calendar year, but do not contribute to the community, will my points get deducted?
No. In this case, you shall remain an Explorer till the end of the calendar year.
