Points and Levels


To encourage participation and reward great answers, Innovation Excellence has a system of points and levels. The number of points you get depends on the specific action you take. The points table below summarizes the point values for different actions. While you can't use points to buy or redeem anything, they do allow everyone to recognize how active and helpful you've been. (And they give you another excuse to brag to your friends.)

Levels

Levels are another way to keep track of how active you (and others) have been. The more points you accumulate, the higher your level. Innovation Excellence recognizes your level achievements with our special brand of thank you's!

And finally, as you attain higher levels, you'll also be able to contribute more to Innovation Excellence - you can ask, answer, vote and rate more frequently.
