World Community Recognition Program

The Optimizely World Community Recognition Program (CRP) is meant as a way to recognize all great contributions by our community members. Without our members and your activity here, Optimizely World would not be what it is, so we would like to acknowledge the importance of your efforts.

How does it work?

Optimizely World is a community for technical users working with the Optimizely platform. The site has many options for finding answers and sharing knowledge. There are multiple forums covering all Optimizely products, there are blogs, and there are articles and documentation, where you can post comments and suggestions. By contributing, you have the possibility to earn CRP points that will be associated with your user profile.

How do I earn points?

Activities you perform on World will get you points. For example, writing blog and forum posts, answering questions, writing comments, and submitting articles. There is also a possibility to earn extra points at special occasions, such as competitions.

The list below describes the acitivities that you can earn points directly from World.
