Edited 11/4/2013: Edited to reflect that unauthenticated users cannot vote on content other than forums
Update: The change has been implemented today, October 30, 2013
Soon we will change the voting system on Connect. In the forums, we will change the current forum voting system to a system that allows both authenticated and nonauthenticated users to answer the question "Was this Helpful?" Voting in other areas of Connect (blog, articles, etc.) will stay the same and will be available only if you are logged in to Connect. Because of these changes, we will no longer award points for votes anywhere across the site.
Contributions in some areas on Connect will now receive additional points to account for the loss of voting points. The new point values are listed below:
|Create a new forum post||1 pt|
|Post a comment||1 pt|
|Comment is marked as a solution||35 pts|
|Create a blog entry||25 pts|
|Create a video||Up to 200 points|
|Create a download||Up to 100 points|
|Create an article||Up to 200 points|
|Create an event||25 pts|
|Create an idea||5 pts|
Exact point values of blogs, videos, downloads and articles will be up to the discretion of the community manager.
