Reputation System (the Gameplay)

A reputation system, being progressively rolled-out,  will add a game layer on top of the eZ Community. Participating in the eZ Community’s life, in the areas described in http://share.ez.no/get-involved, will let you accumulate points, grow your karma and unlock badges. More later, but keep in mind that all of your contributions are already counted, and will be introduced step-by-step, visually, on members’ profiles. We do not see why your participation should not be rewarded.

Our idea is to let you have, on your eZ Community profile, a clear score-card of your activity within our community. While this is first and foremost a source of fun, you can also advertise this to show your involvement in the project, gain recognition, show your skills and experience. It is intended to benefit you, demonstrating expertise and experience. We will make sure that this score-card can be surfaced through widgets anywhere else: LinkedIn, blogging platforms, etc.

Here is below an idea of the badges you can unlock. If you have used http://stackoverflow.com, or foursquare/gowalla before, this should feel familiar. If you have new ideas, tell us: Feedback on the Reputation System, badges !
