So it looks like, in Profile > Reputation > Ranking, the Instructure employees no longer appear, so that customers' Rankings are higher than they were before...
Anybody else notice this and/or confirm?
If so, nice move, Instructure! (As fun as it was competing with you, Deactivated user... 🙂
Hmm... Interesting... I just checked and you are completely correct! Didn't change anything for me , but it looks like a lot of people got a big jump in their rankings!
Side note, email@example.com let me know that Deactivated user was still showing up on his list, so maybe just *some* of the Instructure employees were removed?
Thanks for the note on Seth.
Yes, we took ourselves out of the ranking to put a better focus on our Community Members! We want to see what you are all doing, not where we fall in the mix!
Hi G.Petruzella@mcla.edu - thanks for noticing. Clearly you're one who checks your ranking regularly
Yes, we removed those members whose role requires them to engage in the community regularly (i.e., Community Team, some docs team from the rankings, some employees). We initially focused on those who ranked in the top 10-15 by default. We did not remove all employees since we do encourage employees to engage in the community.
BTW - Instructure employees can still accumulate points/badges and 'play' with y'all. We simply won't show up on the leaderboards. So don't give up on your battles just yet...
G.Petruzella@mcla.edu was always going to put himself out of my reach anyway. But now it won't be as obvious to the world!
I like the move, still plan to rack up more points than the other CSMs, but that is just because I have a problem 🙂
