To determine the leaders, each contribution made by a BIRT Exchange member is assigned a weighted point score that roughly corresponds to its effort/value. For example, starting a forum topic by asking a question will score you 1 point and answering someone's question scores 3 points. Members with the top summed scores each month are declared the leaders for that month and posted to the Leaderboard. Over time we evolve the scoring system as needed for fairness and value to the community. We even give points for rating forum posts.

So please contribute to BIRT Exchange. It's not difficult to get a decent score and we'd love to see you on the Leaderboard next month!

You can find details on the Community Leaderboard page. If you have any suggestions or comments, please add them to this blog post (they're worth 2 points).

Welcome to the New BIRT Exchange

Posted by Ray Gans , 24 June 2013 - - - - - - · 6767 views

We have been hard at work during the last few months making a significant upgrade to our forum and DevShare infrastructure. There are a few things remaining to complete and clean up, but we should be in great shape to add a lot more capabilities to BIRT Exchange. We think you'll really like it!

Take look around and become familiar with the new layout. We'll be posting blogs during the next few days and weeks with information about how you can make the most out of the new site.

If you find anything that's missing, doesn't seem right, is really ugly, or broken, please let us know at:
birtexfeedback -at- birt-exchange -dot- com (yes, we know we need to add a link to report problems).
