At the beginning of this year, we added a feature that pays IPVM member 35 cents for every time any member votes up their comments. So if a members gets 50 total votes, they get $16.50 member credit.
Today, for Q3, we just paid $1,200+ to members, including 22 members with over $10 each, and to a total of 190 members who received 3 or more total votes. Those members were all sent emails this evening.
Update Jan 2015: We just paid $1,300+ to members for Q4.
However, we want to pay more. We'd be happy to pay double or triple this to help reward members.
So make sure to vote. You can vote on any comment, just hit the buttons like so at the bottom of each comment:
This is especially important when someone shares field experience or recommends a production or solution that you had not heard of.
We have also added voting buttons to emails sharing new comments on threads to make it easier.
Again, vote and reward your colleagues.
Any questions or thoughts, let us know.
