InterSystems Programming Contest: Voting Rules

Hi Developers,

Please welcome the new voting rules for the InterSystems programming contests!

See details below: 

You can select 3 projects: the 1st, the 2nd, and the 3rd place upon your decision. This is how it works for the Community leaderboard:

Community Leaderboard:

Conditions

Place
1st 2nd 3rd
If you have an article posted on DC and an app uploaded to Open Exchange (OEX) 9 6 3
If you have at least 1 article posted on DC or 1 app uploaded to OEX 6 4 2
If you make any valid contribution to DC (posted a comment/question, etc.) 3 2 1

For the Experts leaderboard, different levels of experts have more "points" power:

Experts Leaderboard:

Level

Place
1st 2nd 3rd
VIP Global Masters level or ISC Product Managers 15 10 5
Ambassador GM level 12 8 4
Expert GM level or DC Moderators 9 6 3
Specialist GM level 6 4 2
Advocate GM level or ISC Employees 3 2 1

For those who have any of the above expert levels, votes will be counted in both Expert and Community nominations automatically.

This is how it works:

To take part in the voting, you need:

  1. Sign in to Open Exchange – DC credentials will work.
  2. Make any valid contribution to the Developer Community – answer or ask questions, write an article, contribute applications on Open Exchange – and you'll be able to vote. Check this post on the options to make helpful contributions to the Developer Community.

We hope this new system will be fairer and you'll have the option to give your votes to more projects that you like.

Comments, suggestions are very welcome!

Is there any detail rules about how a common non-ISC user can become specialist, expert, ambassordor and even VIP lvl? 

These ranks all relate to Global Masters (GM)

Hi Michael,
Robert is absolutely right, these levels are related to Global Masters Advocate Hub. You can see a description of all levels and how to achieve them in this post.

If you have an article posted on DC and an app downloaded on OEX

Did you really mean an app uploaded to OEX?
