I am not sure. I have a feeling we confuse more people than help ;-)

Hello bb and Moderators of forum, :)

Ranking and points are good way to motivate people to participate more and solve lot of questions.

But can someone please clear my doubt how the points are calculated?

I see different ranking of PS/DS/CR etc... how the points work?
Solving questions using timers give you points or other factors contribute to it ? Is there a combination (like some particular no. of timers and posts give you particular point) ?
-Morning i had 60 points in geometry and it said i need 20 points to improve ranking. I solved almost 15-20 geometry questions after that. But i didn't received any point improvement, so wanted to know how the point calculation works.

Also i have 1 concern... not sure if its right place to bring it up... Also plz let me know if you guys have different thought on it:

People post question on forum to get correct answers. They want to know explanations and answers asap.

I have seen that as soon as someone posts a question, the Experts reply within few minutes. In a way this is really good thing as we get our explanation/solution from expert but this leads to lower participation from other fellow members. In general, if we see that solution is shared by expert, we will rarely go and post our solution on top of it.

In my suggestion, if expert wait for some time before posting answers, other members will get chance to solve and share there solution/approach on forum. This way members will be motivated to solve more questions and we might see different approaches to solve a question.

Thanks

bb I love this ranking system. Being an athlete growing up ranking was very important to me. These rankings motivate people to do more questions!

Fantastic...This will act as motivator and guide to improvise.

Some reward system can be devised like giving free test or advisory session for particular individuals basis this.



Thank you - Yes. that's a natural next steps and we are trying to figure out/determine how to best do that. Welcome suggestions for the reward basis e.g. top 10 for a week = access for x days to GMAT Club tests OR something else? :)


I suggest, you can give rewards in form of additional points and let the user decide how to spend these points as your existing point burning system. This will be quicker to develop

I have unlocked the topic if anyone has a question but please be informed: this ranking feature is something that pre-dates GMAT Club rewards. The rewards system was supposed to fully replace these rankings but we left these on to help people track how they compare vs. others.

This technically means this Rankings are entirely different from Kudos/ Points system and High Ranking here will not help to redeem any benefits?

Am I right

Yes, rankings system helps one to see where they stand in terms of knowledge compared to other GC users. I highly used this system to ensure I am at the top. This pushed me a lot to prepare hard and be well competitive. It has nothing to do with kudos/redemption process.

Good luck :)

Wow

abhimahna let me tell you sir, you have been one of top motivators. I have failed to get the dream score multiple times but not giving up is something I have learned from your debriefs and other posts. Keep Rocking as always

Thank for the reply!
