If you've been around Diabetic Connect long enough, you've heard someone ask (or perhaps you've asked yourself), "What are the points for?"
We are so excited to let you know that as part of our celebration of the two-year anniversary since we officially launched Diabetic Connect, we are sponsoring a Points Contest.
By earning at least 500 points during the entire month of June, you will qualify to be entered to win great prizes, including a Grand Prize Pack ($200 value) which includes a new meter, A1C self-test kit, diabetes cookbook, and much more. Additionally, six First Prize winners will receive $50 Walgreens Gift Cards.
As part of this contest, we have revised the way you earn points on the site to reward those who provide contributions that get others talking, rating, and engaged in discussions and conversations. You can go to your Profile page and click on the "My Points" tab to see the new point structure.
One important note, the "My Points" tab doesn't do a good job of explaining points you receive when your discussion post or other contribution receives a rating from another member. Here's the breakdown of points you can earn from ratings:
1 Star = 0 points
2 Stars = 5 points
3 Stars = 10 points
4 Stars = 15 points
5 Stars = 20 points
As you can see, rating is an important way to earn points and it helps us identify the best contributions to the site. So be sure to give ratings to discussions, recipes, news, etc. whenever you find something you like.
Finally, for every 500 points you earn beyond the minimum of 500 points, you'll earn another chance to win, up to a maximum of 5 chances to win.
Let me know if you have any questions. Get posting and rating and participating!
