Made a User-Based Points System

Thomas Hansen @krank3n

After learning how to code this past couple of years, writing my own user-based points system wasn't too difficult at all.

It's surprising to see how far my coding skills have improved, as just one year ago, it's would be very difficult for me to accomplish this and wouldn't even know where to start. But now I can comfortably code it with really any difficulties.

    What's your goal with this point system? Does it work for you?

    1. 1

      Good question David.

      I guess with any point system, it helps show progression and status of completion. For me personally, as the founder, it's a great way to see who has contributed how much to the platform. I can instantly see the top users and I assume it helps encourage others with interaction.

      I definitely think it could have some improvements added to it, but I am trying to prioritize what's important right now.
