How much is too much when it comes to incentivizing user participation?
How to promote useful contributions?


Very valuable topic. Given that the session is around an hour long, it might be worth focusing on a few key areas…as incentivization is a pretty big topic. Which areas do you feel are the most valuable to focus on?


Points and possibly badges, although I’m keen to avoid making this a game. Our site https://discuss.newrelic.com is primarily a support forum so the value is in the answers and getting users to want to help themselves is key.


I work with students and am always searching for better ways to do this. I would be very interested in techniques and activities that help students realize the power of volunteering and giving to their neighbors.

Thanks to for being the kind sponsor for this forum!
