The scoring will start about 6 hours from now. I'm looking into adjusting the times now.

Don't worry, if you already made posts - they'll add to your score. We however recommend that you should wait until we officially announce the beginning of score counting.

The one who'll create the most useful and awesome threads will win the match. I see that the moderators are leading the lot. We hope you've the guts to beat them up! 😁

See the CEoM app counts the replies to older threads also.There are 1000+ threads in each section, so just replying to all these threads will add up to a huge score, you know what am saying.

I think activity during the particular month should be counted.

If you replies to those old threads during this month, Yes your count will increased. But remember if we see any spam or irrelevant replies to any thread then you can report such replies and Moderator team will take action on that.

It's actually as designed. Of course all the old threads are open for responses, but each new response would add only 20 points. We encourage all the users to initiate more discussion so that everyone benefits.

Kindly pls don't start thread just fro the sake of the points We are here to learn and also to make this place a better one

So I personally love to see some quality arguments here is some amazing titles

PS: Why not include a bonus point for the thread starter who pulls in maximum response here

I think that could be a part of our next CEoM update. 😀

One more Idea popped up ...!!

We can also give points for inviting people to CE, so whoever referral joins, the CEan who referred get some points...!!

This way more people would know about CE

PS: But abusing this thing would be drastic, we have to find some way to control it as well.
Kaustubh Katdare
Kaustubh Katdare • Jul 1, 2013
We dropped that idea. Those who want to join, will join without invitation. Inviting for the sake of getting more points isn't really what we want.

Single D-I-Y article = 500 points to 1000 points.
Why ? Because D-I-Y Projects, needs load of hardwork. If I am consuming 2 days in collecting my project code, circuit schematic & gerber files & uploading it on CE with detailed explanation of how to connect which component to connect, which pin to configure,etc., then I guess it should be allotted more points.

Good idea if we can implement such feature in next CEoM. Either CEoM app will increase point automatically or manually in case app is not smart enough to detect the thread is DIY or Tutorial.

My reason is that it's easy to get news source and create post based on that information. In case DIY or tutorial it will need your more time and it will also required user to be active on that thread.

If talk how CE will get benefit then DIY or Tutorial will bring traffic to CE for upcoming years too while news sharing threads brings traffic for small period of time (I am not sure about this please correct me if I am wrong).

Strong point is that such DIY and Tutorial threads are going to make CE technically strong which will again bring more active CEans in future.

Kaustubh Katdare • Jul 1, 2013
Abhishek Rawal : There's some complexity involved if we do not form an entirely new section for it [we can use CE Labs, of course]. But we haven't received many DIY projects on the site so far [those that have been contributed are exceptional!].

So at this point, I'm not sure if this would really make it to the App; but we'll surely consider this during our next update.
Kaustubh Katdare
Thank you for this amazing initiative. I have managed to get some free time for CE because of this activity itself.

Anyway, I had a doubt. Can the gadget and Apps section contain any customizations we do to our gadgets? May it be on the hardware front pr the software? I suppose that could fall under "Apps" but I found it right to clarify it before posting it.

Thanks in advance for clarifying..
Kaustubh Katdare
Kaustubh Katdare • Jul 2, 2013
The forum sections are very generic and if you have any customisations related to gadgets or apps - they can be discussed under the gadgets/apps sections. If the customisations are more on the electronics/communications side of the devices you may host them in electrical / electronics engineering section.

I hope this answers your question.

Update: I seem to be the top scorer so far 😨, and that too when I've slowed down from my usual posting rate. Creating content isn't very hard, folks. Try the following-

1. Comment on VoiCE articles and build up a discussion. We write very interesting articles and if each of the participant starts commenting on them - we'll have very interesting discussions built up in no time.

2. Write about the problems and solutions you've encountered during your studies or at work.

3. Write app reviews in your own words.

4. Start an interesting debate. You may get idea from the Internet, but make sure you describe the debate in your own words.

5. Find latest technology news (I mean latest!) and make sure it's not already covered on CE. Describe it in your own words and ask questions to other CEans so that we can build up a discussion.

6. Write about any whacky, crazy idea - and seek opinions from other members.

Give it a try and see your score pass the 10,000 points benchmark in just a day or two.
In engineering and news section, I saw a line that " you have insufficiant previleges to post here."
What does it mean there?

You're not allowed to post in that section. That section itself will be merged with our previous news section.

Well, we'd generally promote news threads created by our authors or the news that are totally worthy of attention are promoted. The news will have to be written with proper grammer and formatting before it can be promoted to the front page.
Sir I want to know how the points are alloted?I have made 99 posts and got only 5points.could you explain please.

But still there's 16 more days to go and as I said; anything can happen. What's stopping you people?

😨 There's no point in me winning. But beating you is easy, even if I start now 😁.

By the way - you may try and beat me in the number of posts & likes. That'd be a better target.

I disqualified myself because now I can post freely and make some room for the next in line.

Yeah, I know that. You're lucky that I don't have vacation.
I look at scores & tell myself that "Don't let Biggie move ahead"
So that was my driving force, well nevermind, now I have to assume that you are still very close to me 😉
Yes abhishek is on fire.Definitely he has an edge.Not to forgot biggie.
I am waiting for my turn.Hope we soon will be in tough competition.

I've decided to change my mind on my participation in CEoM. I mean; if I win; I'll treat myself with the prize money. Don't want to make it an easy win for any of the CEans.

The July Competition will be cut-throat, folks. 'Cut-Throat'!

FTW!
