This article explains to our community members how Alibaba Cloud Community reputation system works. Our community's goal is to provide developers and cloud enthusiasts with the latest cloud computing trends, developer knowledge base articles, how-to articles, product updates. A community is defined by its members and we aim to provide the platform for our members to interact and learn from each other. To create trust among our community we have put a reputation management system in place.
Your Community reputation is based on your behavior on our blog, whereby certain activities are rewarded with reputation points. The most important activities are reading, commenting, and contributing. By being an active community member, you collect points and get a reputation that helps to build your credibility and leadership within our community.
First of all, we distinguish between two types of users:
You will be rewarded with a certain number of points for each activity, depending on your type of activity and the type of user you are, whereby a subject matter expert is rewarded with a higher number of points. The reason for that is because subject matter experts have proven themselves by contributing valuable knowledge and insights to our community and therefore are rewarded by continuously sharing this expertise.
Below you find an overview of the different type of activities and the corresponding points for general users and subject matter experts.
