OK In the Know Achievements Challenge – Final UPDATE

2 572

UPDATE: The FINAL stats are in for the January 2018 OK In the Know Achievements Challenge!

We are excited to announce a new competition to help make collaboration and learning on OK In the Know even more rewarding!

You may have noticed the Achievements Leaderboard section on the OK In the Know main page. Points and achievements can be earned in many different ways, including logging in, browsing the site, starting a conversation in the Forum, and replying to others’ posts.

What is the Achievements Challenge?

The OK In the Know team will track points earned by every user for the month of January. At the end, we’ll announce the winners who earned the most points as the Achievers of the Month.

The winners will be solely determined by the number of points earned from January 1 to January 31; points accumulated prior to January 1 do not count toward the total. However, the existing Achievements Leaderboard will continue to track overall earnings over time.

How Can I Win?

You earn points by logging in and using the site. Over time, these activities add up, and you can earn extra points by reaching certain benchmarks, or achievements.

Each achievement is assigned a certain number of points, which can be seen here on the Achievements Menu. There, you can also see which achievements you’ve earned so far.

What’s Next?

Your points for January are being counted automatically, so keep using OK In the Know like you normally do. Consider trying new activities on the Achievements Menu to maximize your earning, learning, and collaboration!

Monthly winners will be announced on the OK In the Know homepage, and in the weekly e-newsletter.

May the friendliest and most helpful OK In the Know neighbors win!

  1. Hey Michel,
    Great question. The Achievements system and https://www.okintheknow.org/my-achievements/ Leaderboard https://www.okintheknow.org/how-to/achievements-leader-board is an ongoing system built into the site for recognizing top contributors for participating anytime.

    To give people who are newer to the site a chance to compete against the people who have been around longer and have a ton of points, there will be another short-term “sprint” or challenge in the near future. Watch the OkieKnow e-newsletter and the feature on this site for information about the next round of the Achievements Challenge 🙂
