Because we would like people to try new things and thus discover their identity, PLUS developed an activity list split into 7 main “roots” or categories. Each category has 5 subcategories. You can view these from the main menu "Activities" link or your profile point table on the left.
Each category is comprised on 100 activities each which sum in total 1,100 points (more activities may be added later on, but this is the starting point). Each activity is worth either 5, 10, 15, or 20 points depending on our rated difficulty.
For you to keep track of and start earning points, go to your profile page.
On the left hand column you will see a drop down list for the 7 categories, click on one.
Below should then display the 5 subcategories with 100 activities in total and displaying the name and points you receive. At the bottom of the screen are the totals.
Gray means the activity is incomplete and Blue means the activity is complete.
Click on the activity you would like to “complete”. To complete an activity, you only have to make a post. It is all integrity based. As a note, let’s say you are unable to participate in a particular activity for personal reasons. In that case, PLUS would like you to write an article style post about the topic generally. I.e. if you cannot go skydiving, do some research on what it is like to go skydiving, hazards, famous skydivers, or simply state your opinions.
After you click on the activity, you may make your post to include reflections, comments, details, pictures, etc. Click "Create Activity Post" for the activity after clicking on the grayed activity. Only admins will be able to delete and edit the post from the activity database itself (so contact us in that event), however you may remove it from the front stream.
Once you post, the post will go onto the community stream for everyone to view. You should also receive the allotted points as well; this is totaled at the bottom of the left column. You receive points only for the first post in that activity and the activity should now be blue. (If posts are illegitimate, admins may remove the post to remove points and gray out the activity again).
