Question 2: How do I earn 'WE points'?
Answer 2: So far, we're focusing on these key areas of user activity on the site like (but not limited to) publishing articles, photos and maintaining an updated profile. In order to avoid misuse of the system we do not publish the entire list of activities we track for pointing system and we keep modifying the amount of points we allocate for each activity. We're highlighting these areas and recognizing the top users in them.

Answer 3: No, you do not need to register separately for the WE points program.
Question 4: What are levels?
Answer 4: Levels are based on total points accumulated under your merinews account. Each Level is designated by a badge of different color. Higher the points, higher will be the Level. Merinews will plan future rewards and benefits based on the Levels
Question 5: Do WE points expire?
Answer 5: Yes. If you do not login to your account for over 3 months then your WE points will expire.
Question 6: Can others view my WE points?
Answer 6:Yes, they can. Points and Levels are not treated as private information on merinews, rather it’s an indicator of the citizen journalists' credibility and participation.
