I know I have already written about this but after having worked for literal months to get up to level 12, having accrued 50,000 points, imagine my disappointment to find that to go up another level, I need another 50,000 points. Please can someone review these tiers? Also, I don't know what I was expecting but when I "achieved" the 50,000 points, it was very underwhelming. I didn't even get a notification about it. I know this is supposed to be an added extra but, if you go to trouble to make a program like this, I think it should feel more rewarding. When you complete a course in the Atlassian university, at least some glitter pops up on the screen for a few seconds...

Just my two cents.

Congrats to 50.000 points @Valerie Knapp That's quite a journey, which I am also trying to accomplish bit by bit. I've seen in some forum, that in the past Atlassian did send some real life badges and small gifts for different tiers like "Rising Star". Stuff like that would be awesome for higher tiers as well. 

A view weeks ago, I participated in an ACE and got some socks with cloud motives (the event was about cloud migration). That was very cute, unexpected, and rewarding at the same time and that was just for participating in the event :)

Dear Atlassian, the little gifts are already there, just send them to your highly engaged community members 😜

@Valerie Knapp thank you for the feedback! I know you've been really engaged in the program so your thoughts are especially important.  We're looking at milestones for additional rewards, it's good to know that 50K feels meaningful and that maybe it's too big a jump to the next level.  

Please keep the feedback coming, and @Christian Kreß thanks for weighing in as well! Kudos headed both your way.

Hi @Monique vdB , thanks for your response. I would say that 50,000 felt significant but mostly in a negative way. 50,000 is / was a number so high as to seem impossible when you start out, especially when things like responding to a question, which can be, I'm sure you can appreciate, very time-consuming, is only 20 points.

I also note that what is written in the 'Challenges' in terms of the points value is not applied consistently. See below, where 'Leader Approved' is indicated on the right as 25 points and yet I am awarded only 10 points.


Honestly, I am embarassed to write to complain about some made-up points system. However, I would like to avoid a situation where people end up feeling like I do sometimes, that in spite of having spent lots of time and effort to try to help other people, and where there is a system of rewards and commendations, that it seems to be calibrated incorrectly or weighted unfairly towards people who can spend their whole day on here. I think we stand to get more out of fostering a community of people helping each other, at all levels, in different languages, contexts, etc.
