How do we earn DO points? Which community activities earn points?October 6, 2017 at 6:11 am #105774
I’m not certain that I know all the activities that will earn you points, but posting art, commenting, liking comments, making friends, and posting in the forums will all get you DO points. In other words, interact and you’ll get points. When you’ve earned a point, a big blue DO symbol will flash, briefly, in the right sidebar, telling you how many points you’ve earned. Sometimes, it takes a few seconds to show up, and I don’t know if it is visible on all devices.

Thanks,Sandra! How do you “like” comments? I only see a place to comment.October 7, 2017 at 1:39 am #106117
Sharon, I’m copying the answer I sent directly to you, here in the correct forum -proof that it depends where on the site that you are. On your wall, I could like but not comment, and here in the forum I can reply but not like.
I’ve found the best way that works for me, is to click on Community at the top, and choose ‘Site-wide News Feed’. You can also get to this from your Profile page, but the Community link is there pretty much no matter where you are. The News Feed lists most things that are going on, and you can like them by clicking on the heart. On some of the screens you will actually see the option to ‘like’ something. I’m not sure that everyone sees the same thing. It is possible that it differs if you are on a phone, etc. But I’d try the Newsfeed and go from there.
And, if, at first you don’t succeed try another area of the site.October 8, 2017 at 5:12 pm #106400Debra “Kate” PowellParticipant
The site-wide news feed is the best way to review what is happening… and hit like!
Or you can pop onto a person’s actual page and hit like.

What I want to know is that I heard that you can only make so many points in a day… How many? Charlie?October 8, 2017 at 9:39 pm #106464AnonymousInactive
I’m wondering the same thing as Kate. I have made several friends and have not received points for them. I have way more time on the weekend to explore this site than during the week, so I’m naturally going to have more activity them.October 8, 2017 at 10:59 pm #106478
I haven’t been paying that much attention, but I think you get the points when the request is accepted.October 14, 2017 at 8:00 pm #110139Elizabeth MetzParticipant
Gah, I hope not. I tend to be active in spurts, as I’ve got energy. 🙁October 14, 2017 at 8:53 pm #110144
Charlie did post a note (he posts them in the upper right sidebar) to everyone saying that there was a cap on how many points you can make in a day. He didn’t say what the number was. I haven’t tried to figure it out, but my impression (and this may be totally wrong) is that there is a cap on each type of activity. You can get so many per day for likes, so many for comments and so forth. I’ve never seemed to stop getting points in a day’s time, but seem to stop gaining them for certain activities as I go along.October 24, 2017 at 12:26 pm #112140Charlie O’ShieldsKeymaster
Yep, there’s a daily limit on each type of activity to encourage people to DO more types of things, like commenting. The most DO Points can be earned by sending Invites to friends from your Profile (10 per invite and 25 each time someone accepts!) 😉November 7, 2017 at 1:05 am #120103Peter BurnsParticipant
Do you know how annoying it is for a new member like me to get friend requests from people who seems to like gaining do points and not someone who actually likes my artwork. I check out the person wasting my time then reject them.November 7, 2017 at 2:15 am #120107Violeta Damjanovic-BehrendtParticipant
Hi Peter, after adding at least one artwork, you’ll give somebody a chance to like your artwork.
W.r.t. making friendship on any social network – it should be taken for granted.
Cheers!November 7, 2017 at 2:24 am #120108Peter BurnsParticipant
Hi Violeta, I agree with you, I’ve only just joined and yet to add any artwork. So why be friends with someone who knows nothing of you, asks no questions, sends no greetings and seems to have hundreds of “friends”?November 7, 2017 at 6:43 am #120121Violeta Damjanovic-BehrendtParticipant
Hi Peter, that’s not my style either. Looking forward to seeing your watercolours here 🙂
