So do you agree that the badge effect has greater impact on high reputation, high commitment users?
… in agreement with previous studies that showed the badge effect depends on the quality of users.
Follow up question to this thread - has anyone found a workable gasification system for Discourse specifically? Would love to put something in place, but our team is hesitant to move forward with anything manual.
Our previous Community platform, GetSatisfaction, had a basic gamification system built in and it was actually quite effective in keeping engagement levels up. I’ve searched through meta.discourse.com and from what I can tell, they have no plans to add any further gamification to their platform.
Happy to hear any thoughts on this!
Our community plans to start using badges at some point, but that may take a while to implement as we determine qualifications, names for the levels, etc. That said, we would also like to start posting our leaderboard lists for various categories. That seems like a quick and easy way to acknowledge active members. It’s also one we can pretty much implement without too much planning. The only thing is that I need some help with wording. What are some key words or phrases you would include as an introduction to that thread each month? I’m thinking a few sentences that explains what it is before posting the actual lists.
