Scheduling story for you...
20 years ago Del (my now husband) invited me out on a date for the upcoming Friday 26th June. My answer (knowing the pub he mentioned did not have a big screen).... 'No, England are playing'
Our first 'date' was on Friday June 26th 1998 at my place watching the match (England vs. Columbia) with beers & pizza and all our friends :D
I learned that night, Del has a tendency to cheer on whoever our opposition is.

I might try to see if I can make it down from Bonnie Scotland but that also means I cant promise to be supporting the same team everyone else is :P
Oh come on Allen, we need all the help and support we can get :D
Hope you & @RobertT would be great to see you both, maybe @JMcJohnston can make it too? make it a roadtrip :)

To be clear, although I often refer to them as ‘points’ they’re technically not points, they are in fact a value of, for example each behaviour has a value, which may have a multiplier of X which then contributes to a total value of Y.
Here is a sample formula…
(logins >10) && (registrationAge >= 129600) && (((net_threads) + (net_replies*2) + (net_blog_articles*10) + (net_blog_comments) + (net_idea_threads*5) + (net_idea_comments)) >=100) && (((net_kudos_events_given) + (net_kudos_events_received*2) + (net_accepted_solutions*10) + (tagging_tag_count)) >=20)
Login & registration are both required, in addition…
A combination of threads, replies, blog articles, comments, idea threads & comments are also all required but as a combination, as such the member could potentially only ever post replies and never post in a blog or idea exchange. As long as the total value equals 100 or more they will achieve this required behaviour value. The value is based on the community relevant assigned value, for example in this case it was determined a member posting a reply held more value than posting an initial thread, and as such a reply has a multiplier value of 2.
The above provides a good outline of the multiplier values we often see; however these values can be determined to your own chosen values within your formula. I would caution any unusual extremes in these values, consider carefully why you’re giving the value, and what its impact would be to the rank structure and member’s progression, for example in a strictly support oriented community giving higher value to replies makes sense, but when this is not the case it could unfairly fail to acknowledge valuable conversation starting content within the community, in which case you might prefer to have all threads & replies hold the same value. This however would not apply with blogs, where the initial article creation would rightly hold more value than any subsequent comment.
The same principle applies for the next requirement, kudos (given/ received), accepted solutions and tags.
Note: where there is no assigned multiplier the value is = 1
