Points recognize contributors that make our community better and smarter. It also allows all users to evaluate the credibility of their fellow community members - we should value and reward those that contribute responsibly and in good faith, and especially those that contribute high quality content (whether that is thoughtful analysis or accuracy of forecasts).

Earning Points

PowerIndexed aims to value contributions across both quantity (total posts) and quality (as measured by upvotes). There are also ways to earn bonus points through various actions or achievements (like accuracy wins). Some of the ways bonus points can be earned include:

Contributing better modeling analysis to improve PowerIndexed algorithms

Submitting thoughtful pieces for our Medium content blog

Existing tenure of contribution to the sports community (for examples, if you are a long-standing media / blogger or oddsmaker source, former athlete or coach, etc.)

Any way that improves our community and the performance & accuracy of the site
