We are preparing to change the spam prevention strategy in the FileMaker Community. The new strategy will be point-based, so we needed to revise how people can earn gamification points. Below are the the point-assignment rules (also called “missions”) that are now active. Note that you may still see some of the past missions on your profile.


We also analyzed the distribution of levels across the community and adjusted them accordingly -- and gave them new names. Everyone's level will change based on these new thresholds.


Cheers --
