There are basically 3 tools in Tribe when it comes to gamification.
1. Reputation Score:
Every user has a reputation score based on their activities and others' reaction to their posts. A leaderboard is displayed in the homepage which sorts out top contributors. (If your community is at inception stage, the leaderboard only shows the all-time score). As the community gets more vibrant and reaches the establishment stage, the leaderboard will also show the top contributors in a weekly and monthly basis.
To use this feature, you need to install the Reputation app. Learn more here57.
2. Virtual Currency:
There are two ways to add virtual currencies into a user's account: "Manually" or "Winning a Competition".
