Active Rain Points Scale

Everybody always wants to know about how points are awarded on ActiveRain. When teaching a class on blogging in the Rain yesterday with Ellie McIntire, I ran across this post.  Hopefully this helps you as much as it helped me.

Thanks for posting this breakdown!

ActiveRain points are earned based on a member's individual activities and efforts. Points are accumulated over the course of the calendar week which starts Monday morning at 12:00am Pacific Time, and ends Sunday night at 11:59pm Pacific Time.

The following are some ways you can earn points and move up the "Featured Member" ladder in your local area:

  • 200 points for each blog post 
    (Max 10 per week) (50 word minimum required)

  • 25 additional points when post is added to channels with a topic

  • 400 points for Featured Post on ActiveRain.com
    (Excludes posts featured in ActiveRain groups)

  • 25 points for each comment
    (Max 10 Per Day) (Comments on your own posts excluded)

  • 25 points for each reBlogged post
    (Max 10 per week - these do not include your own posts)

  • ActiveRain profile points
    (Building your ActiveRain profile will build points)

  • Received comments on blog posts
    (No blog post to exceed 475 pts.)

  • 100 points awarded for logging in to ActiveRain each day
    (This applies 7 days a week)

  • 250 points when someone accepts your ActiveRain invitation
    (Must sign up under Member's Invite Code)

  • 10% of total points earned by new members invited by you
    (Example: invited member earns 1000 pts. - you earn 100 pts.)

  • ActiveRain and member approved contests - points will vary
    (These show up as "Bonus Points" in your Point Summary)

  • Staff awarded bonus points - these are issued by the ActiveRain staff
    (Member Humanitarian, Paying It Forward, 
    Helping Others, etc.)

Weekly Point Scenario: The potential of points available per week, per member would be as follows: 1750 for max comments, 2000 for max blog posts, 700 for logging in daily, 250 for adding to Channels/Topics, and 250 for max reBlogged posts.  The weekly potential of points would be 4950 (this does not include Featured Posts, comments received, invitation and percentage points, contests, and staff-awarded bonus points.)

Ellie, Thanks for this information. I know you and Ellie were great together.

David did a good overview of points on AR. Here are a couple more to add.

You get 25 points when someone reblogs you.

You get 10 points for each spam comment reported.
