The Community Board is the main area that community members use to earn Reputation and Points through exercised governance and contributions.
The purpose of the Community Board is to create an incentive loop for users to generate and validate contributions that can be mutually beneficial to the project's ecosystem growth.
The Community Board is built upon the principle that token holders should play an essential role in the ecosystem building, helping the team encourage good behavior in the community through a decentralized validation process.
The Community Board is a place that helps you present your contributions to the rest of the community so that others can validate your work to allocate Points rewards to you.
In general, you can submit proof of any meaningful contribution that can help grow the fundamental value of the project ecosystem.
Such work can include:
- Translation of articles, documentation, project blogs.
- In-depth articles about the project's specific areas published on essential media outlets
- Infographics or YouTube videos created to explain complex concepts
- Product improvement solutions, such as better blockchain explorer design
- Local channel management, such as managing a Chinese community group
Here are two contributions submitted by two users from the NEM community:
The Community Board consists of two main features: Activity submission for contributors and governance for validators. Both features allow users to earn Reputations & Points.
To start earning Points and Reputations with the Community Board as a contributor, click the "Submit Activity" button on the lower right corner.
After clicking the "Submit Activity" button, you will enter a page that you need to follow instructions to fill in all information about the contribution you made.
You should upload a cover image of your work, a link to your contribution, choose an activity type/category & title, and describe your contribution as detailed as possible.
Then you can click the "Submit" button to submit your contribution for other users to validate.
After an average of seven days, the validation will end, and rewards will be assigned to your account based on the number of Upvotes & Downvotes you revived in the Activity.
You can earn Validator Rewards by upvoting an Activity.
Users who validate the Activity within 15 hours after its publication will receive Validator Rewards, usually 10% - 30% of the Activity author's Points. Therefore, the more upvotes a post gets, it benefits all early validators as they will receive more rewards.
The Validator Rewards for all voters decreases while the time progresses after the publication of the Activity. We recommend you vote for an Activity as early as possible to maximize the Validator Rewards.
