Current status of the Ning Platform is always available on the Ning Status Blog.

Leaderboards and Points

I love that ning brought back leaderboards, but why accrue points if you can't spend them on anything, unless admin team chooses a way for you to redeem your points?

Old leaderboard also ranked members differently and members could spend points in the store on comments and gifts and things for their friends. This is now a moot point.

Just seems to be a wasted module.

Maybe in the future points can be used as ad credits (and ning team can add a way to show ad's on some parts of the network, for those points)

We need a way to show points earned and ways to "spend" them on the site. Maybe spend some points to rate photos, or to be featured member for a week or month or day.

Or Cash in your points (member cashes in points to paypal, ideal or stripe for cash money) Ok far  fetched but cool idea?

  • Hi there!

    This feature was launched as a way of encouraging members to be active and generate content on the website, this is why it is based on points and achievements functionality. 

    There is a potential here, and certainly the functionality can be extended and tied to E-com or other modules, but as I mentioned in my other reply, we havent really planned anything in specific until our current big project is finished. 

    Best regards,

    The NING team

    • True, I remember being one of the ones asking, and yes it is exciting to log in and see new badges, but really in the scheme of things that is all there is. Seems a bit downwinded when thought about, sometimes I admit I am a little clueless lol
