Hello, yesterday got an invite to Rewards Beta, yay!
As an ex-game designer, I've had opportunities to work with game mechanics in videogames but also some of my projects were related to 'gamification' of non-gaming stuff, similar to the Atlassian community board.
It is always a challenge for the designer to find a balance between rewards and fun, to keep participants stay motivated. If done incorrectly it can result in a mindless grinding of that system (which is toxic for the community) or the opposite - an abandoned and boring feature no one cares about.
Anyways, some Atlassian challenges encourage people to do certain activities which is nice.
For instance 'Enterprise Engage' reward size encourages to complete it. But since not many activities in Enterprize group + a very specific topic (at least for me, a cloudy admin) will end up with necroposting and useless commenting and likes just to move on. I've spent around 45 minutes reading stuff there, but didn't found anywhere where I could drop 5 comments (unless those posts were dated like summer 2020).
