Final question... Smart score: it's a percentile, based on the 3 sections, yeah (prob solving, teamwork and engagement)? Is there a recommended way to up a smart score (without just focusing on answering other ppls questions)? Does anyone know the formula for this equation?

    The overall SmartScore has nothing relation with the subscores.

    Every little thing you do on OpenStudy can increase your smartscore. It's how well you do these things to increase it. There's no fast easy way to increase it. It takes times. For the problem solving portion, you must answer questions not only in detail, but guiding the user to understanding the problem. Giving direct answers is not only not allowed, but it doesn't even help the user understand anything. Plus, direct answers don't increase your smartscore as fast as answering in detail would. Teamwork! One thing people consider to be somewhat hard to do. By gaining fans as well as fanning users, you are then increasing your smartscore even more! The more fans you earn, the higher you go. But be aware that creating accounts to fan yourself doesn't increase your smartscore by much. Also, it's not allowed and could lead to your main account being suspended forever. You best bet would be to enter chats, as well as help out a lot. Lastly we have engagement. Here is the fun part, when you ask questions you're increasing your smartscore! Isn't that cool? You can increase your smartscore just by making threads you need help on! Not to mention the amount of medals you earn and give out can help increase it faster! But keep in mind, spamming yourself with medals isn't allowed on here and will not increase your smartscore fast at all. Another thing about engagement is that the longer you're on here, the higher your smartscore goes too! It's as if almost everything on here will increase your smartscore. It can be fun and I hope you find it very fun too. I hope you have the best time on OpenStudy and good luck with the journey on here. c: ~ @Beccaboo333

    just answer this then: is it a percentile? it would make logical sense then as to why the max is 100, only 1 person can be 100, and your "score" can go down over time (as other people increase beyond you)... is that a correct assumption?

    "Plus, direct answers don't increase your smartscore as fast as answering in detail would." @TheSmartOne what did u mean by this? does this mean that a higher word count gives more "points" / weighting?

    higher word count doesn't increase it any faster. And giving direct answers will result in warnings and/or suspensions and those slow down your SmartScore.

    Warnings and suspensions slow down your Engagement subscore.

    now you've said : "higher word count doesn't increase it any faster." then what did u mean by this @thesmartone ?: "Plus, direct answers don't increase your smartscore as fast as answering in detail would." how exactly does detailed answers vs short, concise answers change the weighting?

    \(\color{blue}{\text{Originally Posted by}}\) @TheSmartOne That was written by another user - @beccaboo333 I just copied what she had written. \(\color{blue}{\text{End of Quote}}\) So does that mean that you don't know what she meant then? :/ Also, you're welcome @Jack1 :)
