3.0 has a point system based on activity within the community areas.

Why is this important?

We’ll be using the point system as a means to award community SWAG, including a free pass to the Microsoft Management Summit.

On your own personal profile, you can view how many points you have and what rank you are on within the community.

The following shows you how to accumulate points quickly.  Everything you do on 3.0 awards points – some things more than others.
