Community points are a measure of a user's community involvement, reputation and expertise. Here's how it works:
For Questions & Answers: If you post a good question or a helpful answer, it will be voted up and you'll get 10 points. If you post something off topic or incorrect, it will be voted down and you'll lose 2 points.
For Publishing Articles: Your article will get rated by the community. A good and useful article will get more votes and better ratings from the community. Rating scale is from positive 10 points to negative 2 points for each vote. You also have a daily limit to earn up to 200 points.
Earn enough points and you'll be able to:
15 Points - Vote up on questions and answer. Rate articles.
15 Points - Flag offensive content.
100 Points - Vote down on questions and answers. Give negative points to articles.
700 Points - Become a moderator.
There are three community badges you can earn:
Service Badges are awarded when a service provider delivers quality service and is recognized by MiNeeds customers.
Articles Badges are awarded when your published articles reach a high viewer and rating levels.
Q&A (Forum) Badges are awarded when your answer or question is well rated.
